    What do you guys think?

    Justin Rogers seems to be hot.

    Matt Cassel, not so much.

    Who are your "winners" in these categories?

    I didn't think Kareem Brown as bad last night at all, and he certainly has his work cut out for him learning the scheme.

    i wouldnt be surprised if brown ends up on the practice sqaud or gets cut and picked up else where. moore is safe insurance at the nose, bb was talking up smith at his conferece call, thats 7 d lineman counting seymour, warren, wilfork, wright and green, thats what they carried last year, you can bet who ever we cut the colts will be there to put a claim in as well as other teams

    Kareem Brown has apparently done pretty well in camp so far. I'd be a little surprised if he got cut.

    Is it just me or does Lua look absolutely lost out there? I can't decide who is worse, Lua or Mays.

    Last year I was happy Mays went to the Larry Izzo special teams school, unfortunately he also went to the Larry Izzo linebacker school.

    I just watched the Donks Cowboys preseason crapfest. The Broncos DL is horrible and Ekuban got hurt. They'll be sifting through the waivers for sure.

    Don't be so surprised that Lua looks confused. He is the 211th

    player chosen in the draft trying to learn one of the most

    demanding positions in football. Take heart at the fact we may

    have found a keeper in Justin Rogers.

    I don't think that incredible defensive display in the first half did a damn thing for Samuel's leverage. Rodney slapping down passes, Gay slapping down passes, Hobbs we know is solid, and tremendous pressure even w/o Seymour & Warren. We'd love to have Samuel back, losing Chad Scott makes that evident, but Friday did not.

    Count me as thinking Gutierrez is hot. And please don't compare him with Cassel, that makes no sense. Consider he's a low, low pick in his first preseason (was he UDFA, I can't remember, and I can't find the draft reports on the new NFL website).

    I'm with you on Gutierrez. I thought he looked good. Cassel kinda shaky.
    They signed Vinny the following day. Someone's gotta go.
    Could they be shopping Cassel? Not trying to start rumors, just wondering. I really did'nt like anything I saw from Cassel at all.

    UDFA. I still say that he has little to no chance to make the roster.

    You were not alone on that one.
    Re Gutierrez, he looked good and it was in contrast to Tomase/Breer's comment during the week that he threw interceptions in practice, the way some of us check our cell phones, " every few minutes" ( their words, not mine).....

    I don't remember saying he was going to make the roster. :) But as I've said before and will say again until blue in the keyboard, or until the next preseason game, he handles the rush and looks over his receivers with good poise for a UDFA. That bodes well for his potential to handle NFL game speed, which is one of the components for success. It's a component Cassel had trouble learning, and (why can't I remember his name) the pregnant QB with the low helmet really struggled with it. So I get a little interested when a Pats rookie QB shows signs of poise under pressure. Maybe he's eaten some Flutie Flakes: shows up better on game day than in practice.

    Rookie Gutz was just emulating Brady & Cassel.
    All 3 are having an undistinguishing camp. It is what it is.

    I'm not worried about Brady. Cassie still has 2 games to get in form. Gutz is destined for the PS for further development emulating the next week's opponent.
