I don't see us keeping 11 DB's. To the best of my knowledge, we never have. I also think it would be very risky to go with only 1 backup interior OL.



You are correct, it should have been Libereus instead of Pashos. I think Murphy is a solid special teams guy and getting good reviews from camp. Also, Im not sold that Merriweather is going to make it thru a whole season.

I believe I heard someone on the Buc broadcast say "Pat White is not eligible for the practice squad because he's played a full season in the NFL."

2 questions from last night's game:

1) did Royster do enough to earn a spot?

2) Did White do enough to convince people that he belongs in the NFL?

He's not :cry:

He looked good... in the last pre-season game... if he didn't do enough to earn a spot, he did enough to remind them how earned the spot the last two years. When he was drafted he pushed Keiland Williams off the roster, I thought Williams was going to regain his spot but it might come down to how bad his "sprained shoulder".

He did enough to get another look from one or two teams... if he gets cut :wink:

Chase Minnifield has been waived, trying to stash him on PS. Darn!

Have to think that Winfield's release from Seattle has something to do with...

No way that guy clears waivers! Only way he was going to stay on this team is by not getting cut. I thought he was going to be the third corner.

Loved this quote today from Coach on Gumbs making the final 53:

"Gumbs came in and competed. That’s what we tell these players: We don’t care if you’re a first-round draft choice or a free agent, we’re gonna play the best players. Gumbs came in and played well, and he earned himself a roster spot.”

Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

Any one else not like the idea that that Vompton is 68 and Jenkins is 51?
Whenever I see 68 and 51 like most Skins' fans they think Grimm and Monte Coleman.

Yeah, but we really don't have many numbers left. I think players should be able to wear the numbers of the greats, seeing it as an honor and challenge to live up to the legacy. My 2 cents

Are you suggesting that we retire the #'s of all our great players? We'd have to start using 3 digit #'s.

There is only one retired number... 33.
Several others are simply not used...
9... 28... 43... 43... 44... 49... 70... 81.
