DRINK THE KOOLAID SEE YOU FOR GAME TWO WHEN WE SEE THE REAL 2008 ROSTER Belichick and Pioli are out working hard, and are doing wierd things just as they always do in the 10 days coming up to Game 2. I'm sure there will be more transactions. OFFENSE 1) Chad Jackson was waived after trade talks fell through. If Belichick is ready to give up, I am too. I LIKE Washington as the #4 receiver. We have lots of emergency #5's (Slater, Aiken and Ventrone). 2) With Watson possibly out for a game we are looking at Pociask. Why is that bad? Maybe he is better that Spach, maybe not. 3)We picked up an emergency OT to join Connolly on the likely to be replaced list. Is it really worse to have no #4 OT? 4) I presume CJ Jones will be waived when Faulk comes back, and will also land on the Practice Squad. 5) The weakness on the offense is the #8 and #9 OL's who Belichick might replace, and who are warming spots for them guys on the PUP list. The folks here might not like Hochstein or Yates, but Dante does. DEFENSE 6) Last I heard the DL is what we wanted. 7) The last I heard the LB's are the ones we wanted. Is anyone crying that Hobson was cut and Guyton kept? Is Redd on the Practice Squad instead of the 53 man roster really a tragedy? 8) Are there Bryant fans out there? We have four CB's and a couple on the Practice Squad. Perhaps Richardson will be active when healthier. 9) Yes, it sucks that Belichick thinks that Lynch isn't worth $1.5M. Maybe he's not. In any case we have three safeties, which is all we need. Our emergency safteties are Sters as is usually the case (Slater and Ventrone). OTHER ITEMS 4) The Practice Squad is looking good. We DO INDEED have two players that we could call up at any time: Spann and Richardson. And Redd made it through. 5) Who will be here first: Poteat, Law, Lynch, Seau? NEXT STEPS A) Cut CJ Jones when Faulk comes back. B) Waive a TE wen we need a roster spot. C) Look really hard at OL's. We've certainly tried. Welbourn and Flynn were the latest two. D) Make decisions on Lynch and Law, Seau and Peteat also I suppose.
