    RB Taylor, WR Galloway, OL Light, DL Brace....4 others...am thinking Ohrenberger...(with Simmons backing up at OT) CB Wheatley, S Lockett and (One of Wilfork/Warren/Watson or Ninkovich...If those 3 are healthy...)

    why are they going to continually de-activate Galloway?. Get him out there, see if he can play and play him - or cut him. 2 bad games (ok - it was more like 4) don't tarnish a 15 yr track record.

    There is no reason to have an inactive healthy vet - inactives and PS positions are for young developmental players and injured guys.

    As to Brace and Pyror being "ahead of him", it happens from time to time. (Wilhite over Wheatley comes to mind that that was a bigger pick spread). I kind of thought Brace would get a lot of snaps when they traded Sey. I suspect Peas did too.

    Well...if it was a good weather day, I would think Galloway would be active...BUT..if it's a rainy windy day..they do not need an extra WR...they have to pay him for the year...so they will not drop him until they REALLY need the position on the 53....
    Pryor has been ahead of Brace since PREGAME 1...he looked really good all through that time..Brace has been a ways back...but that is NOT that unusual..

    Actually PSquad positions are for healthy young players...NOT vets and not those injured. Inactives are those that are not needed in the game..those injured and those in positions where they can be least used...which would usually be a RB, 2 OL, 1 DL...and such...as well as those injured. Taylor is the RB...Light might be one of the OL..Brace the DL..It also has to do with those on ST. So Chung, Alexander, Ninkovich and others who play a LOT of ST will not be inactive. If players are healthy, it comes down to who is least valuable as a backup or ST player.

    I really hope that Galloway isn't inactive tomorrow. He's a deep threat who, at the very least, makes defenses think twice about shifting their coverage over to exclusively Welker and Moss. Best case scenario, he's capable of breaking the big one. He would have had a HUGE TD that would have won us the game if Brady was capable of getting the ball to him in Week 2. I want to see him active.

    If it was a good weather game, I agree...but in heavy rain and wind..he's not needed..unless there is an injury and Welker/Moss are out. Maybe in London..against teh Bucs..

    Even in heavy rain and wind, Galloway is still capable of creating separation. If he and Brady can get their timing down, he's capable of catching the shorter and intermediate passes.

    That might be true...but I think he'll be inactive tomorrow with rain and wind for sure...Could be wrong of course...BUT..I do agree that I would LOVE to see a break out game for him..they need it.

    I hope Galloway is active tomorrow. 4 weeks of being inactive is pointless, if that's the case then just cut him. If this guy needs half the season to learn his **** then F it.

    If he continues to be inactive tomorrow, then that is a clear indication they will cut him and I believe only so when Tate comes off PUP or after the trade deadline in which case he must then be claimed off waivers and so will most likely go to a team not in contention (by order of priority), if I understand that correctly.

    I think Galloway will be active tomorrow. Tennessee is minus their two starting cornerbacks. This could be a day for Galloway to build his confidence.

    Im not sure i understand where this whole "when Tate comes back" thing comes from. I see alot of people posting this. Has he even practiced with the team? Its my understanding that he was drafted, and pup'd, and has not practiced. If thats the case, why are so many people thinking that he'll come back and replace Galloway? This kid is a rookie coming off a knee injury. He probably wont be contributing to the passing game for awhile. Returns maybe, but i doubt in the passing game.

    I tend to agree....he has never practiced...his knee was operated on..he is recovering since then...I don't know how much he has absorbed so far...the play book etc..Maybe returns but I agree passng takes a lot of time drilsl etc..and that is not at all possible..HE could go from NFI to PUP which would give him more time..that is possible...or he could go straight to the 53 or IR...but those are also possibilities after he is PUPed...I think it will depend on many things..
    As for Galloways possible inactive status...I just think with wind..rain..they may NOT need a 5th receiver...I agree I would love to see him active and get reps..on a good day weather wise absolutely!!! But in a game in the rain..that might not be as easy...I would say IF he's inactive it would be his 3rd game NOT 4th....and next week definitely active...

    Agreed. My assumption is that they'll go with 4 wr, 3 TEs and 4 RBs.

    Agree on Tate. At best he will play special teams.

    I miss Joey Galloway.

    This is my best bet. Galloway is done, but they don't want him to land on a good team.

    Maybe he plays one last time and they try to ship him off for a draft pick... or maybe BB is decisive and has had enough and is just making sure he doesn't lose 3 WRs in a given week before cutting him...
