    We fussed so much on who would make the 53. How much did the final choice matter?

    The last three spots are now held by Mays, Baker and Walter. Spann will probably be back when the punting situation resolves itself. These players are emergency players, needed because of injuries. Any could be replaced, without much notice, at any time. Pass could replace one as a STer, or not.

    Yes, BB seems to prefer that the bottom of his roster stay flexible, rather than holding on to someone of future value.

    i think it really depends on where injuries are at..and what positions are needed to be covered backup wise. Always has been the case..

    BB seems to use the last 2 or 3 roster spots depending on what the situation is at that time. Due to injuries and/or opponent.
