    I haven't given much attention to Hobson. But if this is true, his chances of making the team don't look good.

    Well, I would think that Hobson would get the courtesy of being a 'first' cut, so if he's definitely going to get axed, I'd expect to find out in the next day or two.

    I think Wilhite makes the roster but is on the inactive list most weeks.

    Seems like coach Billy learned from the Monty Beisal waste of time.

    With the way the special teams have performed, I don't know if

    being part of those units is a good thing or not.

    To be on all 4 ST starting units has to be an excellent sign as to whether a player sticks or not. That is a good sign for Slater (forgetting how each unit performed on Friday of course).
