    Re: One more guess at 53 Man Roster...

    I think your probably pretty close. Changes I would make are;

    RB; Add Bolden, delete Washington

    Add Devlin at FB and delete Hooman at TE

    OL; delete Kline add a cut Veteran pick up TBA

    Add Ras-I at CB delete Beauharnis at LB

    And you already have listed an added FA DT.

    Armon Armstead to open the season on the new list (whatever its called) where he can be reactivated later in the year.

    I like, except you have to cut Tavon and add Ras-I. Sure Ras-I is injured and always injured, but no point in keeping 5 Safeties when CB is always a need. Football gods forbid, but if something happens to Dennard or Talib BB will have to move Arrington outside and rely on the rookie.  

    That's scary. Ras-I stays for insurance. I also see Francis getting IRed, I want to say for Tebow. He's not going anywhere, sadly, he makes the team. Another problem is Devlin/Hooman, they have one spot to their name since Hoo-man is a FB/TE. No point in keeping Devlin if you keep Hoo-man.

    They're not cutting Beauharnis, but he had both Hooman and Devlin. Also, Kline sticks.

    Thoughts?

     

     



    I think Gronk is PUPd and they carry Ballard, Sudfeld and Hooman to start the year. I like Hooman overall better than Fells.  I think Brady does, too.

     

    Depending on how a Ballard and Hooman look in the first 6 games, one will be released when Gronk is ready. That's what I would do, anyway.  

    Or, you could just as easily carry all 4 like last year and then stash Develin on the PS for games you want to activate him. I've partly been pining for a FB here for years, any kind of a FB, to justify them running a bit more in I Formation sets or split back sets with Brady under center.

    The ability for checkdowns underneath or even by design, with Brady and these weapons could be devastating for Ds in the red zone.

    Keep in mind, we play Buffalo and the Jets at home in the first 6 games, so I don't see why we need to rush Gronk back at this point.

    In fact, I would PUP Gronk and Cannon since thet haven't played. Just use Josh Kline as a back up behind Svitek and Connolly.

    Agree on Armstead PUPd. You'd think if they knew he would be IRd for the year, they would have already done that by now, don't you think?

    I think they have a plan for him and he gets PUPd.

    Agree with your S and CB lineup. I would go ahead and keep the extra Safety and keep just 5 CBs.   If you really need your 5th CB, you are in trouble anyway.  Stash Justin Green on the PS. He has looked ok at times with rookie flaws, so maybe just keep him around for more development.

    I think Fletcher is on the bubble, but he may make it as the Don Davis/Tracy White role. Beuaharnais is a PS guy to me.  You are better off keeping Tarpinian or Koutavides.

    I have been disappointed with Benard. I don't think he makes it. He hasn't shown up at all.

    I'd honestly (if healthy), rather keep Cunningham, mainly because you know he can play a solid DT while Benard has looked awful playing out of position there.  I say Cunningham just gives you more as a back end roster guy. Bequette PS (if possible) or cut as a bust, and Francis and Cunningham are your swing back up DTs/DEs.

    Lastly, I would cut Washington:

    1. He's shown nothing. Blount and Boyce have looked better on kick offs.   I can see BB thinking Blount gives you more as a spot or backup RB AND has been better on kick offs.

    2. Bolden is talented. Ridley, Vereen and the experiment of Blount have shown more, but I still say if Bolden got more looks in camp, you'd see the flashes we've seen. He's young, he can play, he knows the system and we have NO in between the tackles RBs behind Ridley.

    If RIdley went down, we'd have no one to turn to to be that guy that you can lean on to ice games with leads, winding the clock, moving the sticks in between the tackles.

    IMO, that is literally why we have lost these big games and I don't want to be this close to fixing the main problem of why we lose these games strategically, and then forget why we have a FB in here, why Brady needs to be under Center more, etc, etc, etc.

    Ridley is the guy, but I am just saying. Blount has limited in between the tackles ability. I know it's weird, because he's big, but he's not good at it. Meanwhile, Bolden is quick, low the ground, slithers well, and can get you those 4 yard runs in the 4th qtr.

     BB did say his roster is 80 percent ready which is what I suspected. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Bolden's not that guy either, he blows.

    You're probably right, but Ballard just looks so gimpy.  It's hard to imagine him contributing much.

    QB: Brady, Mallett  [2]

    RB : Ridley, Vereen, Blount, Bolden  [4]

    WR : Thompkins, Dobson, Amendola, Edelman, Boyce, Slater  [6]

    TE : Sudfeld, Ballard, Hoomanawanui, Fells, Gronkowski (PUP)  [4]

    OL : Wendell, Connolly, Mankins, Cannon, Solder, Vollmer, Svitek  [7]

    ST : Gostkowski, Mesko, Aiken  [3]

    DT : Wilfork, Kelly, Forston, Grissom or FA, Armstead (PUP)  [4]

    DE : Jones, Ninkovich, Francis, Buchanan, Cunningham, Benard or Bequette  [6]

    LB : Mayo, Hightower, Spikes, Fletcher, Collins, Beauharnais  [6]

    CB : Talib, Dennard, Arrington, Dowling, Ryan, Cole  [6]

    S : McCourty, AWilson, Gregory, Harmon, TWilson  [5]

     

    PS : Zusevics, Kline, Harrison, Bartholomew, Grissom?, Bequette?

     

    My gut says we should keep Leon Washington, but I haven't yet seen enough to justify it. I'm confident that BB & Co will make the right decision. I, like most, would like to see a solid cast-off added at DT. A healthy return of AA at week 6-8 would be a welcome addition. The bottom tier at DE is also a pick-em lot IMO - maybe someone will emerge during the final pre-season game.

    Wait, so you want to IR someone who has been productive in Francis for someone who would most liekly not even be active on gameday in Tebow? Not sure I understand that one.

    QB: Brady, Mallett

    I honestly don't see how Tebow makes the team. He's a horrible QB who hasn't even proved better at running the ball then our 4th RB. He hasn't shown to given anything on STs and according to all accounts has regressed in passing mechanics. So all in all why keep a 3rd QB who can't throw, provides no better running than you sub RB, and provides nothing on STs?

    RB: Ridley, Vereen, Washington, Blount, Delvin

    Not sure Delvin provides anymore than Hoom

    WR: Amendola, Dobson, Boyce, Thompkins, Edelman, Slater

    TE: Gronk, Sudfeld, Hooman, Fells, Ballard

    Ballard might not be moving well but Fells hasn't shown anything in camp and costs twice as much. The contract is what does him in

    OL: Solder, Vollmer, Mankins, Wendell, Cannon, Svitek, Connolly, Kline

    DT: Wilfork, Kelly, Fortson, Vellano (or FA)

    DE: Nink, Jones, Buchanon, Francis, Benard

    LB: Spikes, Hightower, Mayo, Collins, Fletcher, Beauharnis

    CB: Talib, Dennard, Arrington, Ryan, Cole, Ras

    S: McCourty, Gregory, Harmon, T. Wilson/A. Wilson, Ebner

    One of the Wilson's will make it but not both imo. Ebner still has enough upside and gives enough on STs to keep around, but only until Armstead gets back, if he gets back

    ST: Mesko, Ghost, Aiken

    Thoughts?

     



    My thoughts would be as follows. They are not what I think BB would do but what I have seen as a very casual observer of preseason games ONLY.

    1) I would not keep washington, but they probably will.

    2) I would not keep Devlin unless he has shown to be an amazing ST player. The Pats actually run better out of a 1 back set than they do out of a 2 back set. They are too predictable out of a 2 back set IMO.

    3) I would keep Boldin.

    4) I would PUP Gronk, don't need him early or need to rush him.

    5) I would keep Ballard, best blocking TE on the team. Cut Fells, he's hurt or something and they always seem to go to Hooman before him anyway, in various roles.

    6) Since Armstead is NFI I would be seroisly trying to find a decent backup for Kelly/Wilfork elsewhere, if possible.

    7) From what little I have seen, I have no difinitive opinion on the DE's after the starters. I wuld rather see them use Hightower in that role some. I also do not think Bucanon, IMO, has shown me as much as you all seem to have thought so far. 

    8) I would keep Ras-I, Cole depnding on the final total number.

    9) I would not keep A. Wilson, but they probably will.

    Undrafted out of South Florida. Not mentioned much, but I think he can beat out Fells if Gronk lands on the PUP.

    You counting Huey or Fells as a FB?  I was thinking 5 rb and a FB. 

    Edit: what about a guy like Frank Okam?  Cut from the giants, mountain of a man at 6'5". 350 lbs Know anything about him?

    This is pretty good. Benard hasn't shown much, so maybe Bequette could make it over him. I'd sub Vellano in for Fells or Ballard.

    I want to see Tebow make the final cut.....and get no playing time vs. Giants...

    Both Huey and Fells play fairly well out of the offensive backfield, though I think Huey excels at it and really has a chance to be a solid fullback, I'd like McDaniels to stretch his athleticism and boundries to see how good he can be, maybe give him some carries on surprise dives.

    Frank Okam is an enigma or just plain lazy, the guy is incredibly strong benching 32 times at the combine, his forty, shuttle and vertical leap were all impressive for a guy as massive as he, but in his entire career he hasn't done much.  I think physically he is as talented as any big man in the game but he has been too highly touted (since before highschool) and reads too much of his own press... from college. He is lazy and uninspired, the chances anyone can light a fire under him are slim.  He was lazy in college, that's why he went in the 5th round, he hasn't proven anybody wrong.

    I think if they were to carry another D Tackle they could move Kline to the practice squad and take a chance at losing him, we are very deep at O Line and another DT would be smart.  The reason there might be room to only carry three is I think Francis can take a lot of those tackle/end snaps and Bequette can also play some end.  Jake hasn't been a pass rush nightmare by any means but he is big and holds up against the run better than any outside linebacker except Fortson or Jones.

    Re: One more guess at 53 Man Roster...

    Watched Okam a fair bit with Tampa. Wozzy has it right, when motivated he can really play, just rarely happens. Massive size, strength, weak motor. No thanks.

    I see (or would like to see):

    No Tebow.

    Gronk on PUP and maybe a FA TE brought in to go with Sud, Ballard and Hoom. Maybe Clay Harbor if he gets the axe, or definitely Tony Moeaki if he does.  If someone like that isn't available, then I see them going with three. Hooman and Fells are very similar and you don't have four active TEs anyway, so I just don't see the need for four.

    An FA DT or two to go with Kelly and VW.  Sorry, I don't see anything exciting when I watch Forston, and Vellano is a PS guy at best, maybe has Mike Wright type upside down the road, woop de doo.

    4 RBs, none named Blount or Washington. If they keep a 5th, I'd prefer Develin. Maybe 5 if they go with 3 TEs.

    8 OLs, at the very least. Frankly that's a little scary. Seven would be roster malpractice. Kline probably the last one in but an FA is very possible there, with Kline going to the PS.
