    Not much in potential receiver cuts
    As has been stated before, trading for a receiver in our situation probably isn't a very practical idea.  You're likely looking at trading for a three year contract when what you really want is a one year band-aid since Benjamin will be back next season and Funchess will have a year under his belt. So if anybody new is coming, it'll probably be someone found on the waiver wire after roster cuts.
    With that in mind, I took a (very quick and cursory) look at receiver depth charts around the league to see if there was anyone interesting on the bubble.
    The answer?  From what I can see, not much.
    Names like Greg Salas (who's on his fifth team) and former Panther Tavarres King (who was cut early last year) dot the landscape of 5s, 6s and beyond.  Not exactly exciting prospects.
    One name I did find mildly interesting: Tyler Murphy, a former QB from Boston College (started at Florida) who the Steelers are trying at receiver.  He's looked decent in preseason action but might not make the final roster.
    To be honest, if you were looking for a savior to come from other team's cuts, you were likely gonna be disappointed anyway.  Barring any surprises, the most you can hope for is depth, and even that prospect doesn't really appear to hold anything all that great.
    So basically, if you're waiting for someone to come in and make everybody forget Corey Brown, I wouldn't hold my breath.  Anything can happen, of course, but it looks highly unlikely.

    You don't think Redden's interception buys him a little more time?

    I can't believe I missed this story.
    Piper was one of the best ever, and both his ad-libbed line and the fight in 'They Live' line are classic.

    I'd say Todman is.  Fozzy is a matter of opinion.  He actually played well tonight.
    Runningback depth is probably where the toughest choices are gonna have to be made.

  5. Mr. Scot added a post in a topic Early in Steve Smith's career, he had a terrible preseason chock full of dropped passes   

    I guess the question will be whether he's channeling Steve Smith or Keary Colbert.
    It is possible to recover from trouble like this, but it certainly isn't easy.

    Expected that.
    Preseason Three is when you tend to see the least playing time for the fringe guys.
    Next week I'm guessing you'll see 'em plenty.

    And I'd be remiss not to mention that we got to see Mike Tolbert score - and dance - again.

    Tis true.
    I remember thinking this season it would be tougher for UDFAs to make the team than in years past.
    Injuries could change that, of course.

    Here's an item that ought to elicit a chuckle or two...
    Saints spending one fifth of their cap on players who aren't on the team

    First cuts generally just involve camp fodder, though there are occasional surprises.
    I'm not really expecting any surprises this time.
    (course if you expected them, then they wouldn't be...nevermind)

    They definitely wanted to give him as many chances as possible.
    Again, that's something you can do in preseason.  In a regular season game, he'd likely have been benched.
    Guessing they'll put in a lot of work with him this week, and he may play more against Pittsburgh than he otherwise would have.

    Lot of guys who didn't play tonight (for both teams) would definitely have played if this game counted.
    Mind you, I'm certainly not calling "Super Bowl" right now.  There are definitely concerns, but there are also a lot of things to feel good about.
    I like to go into a season feeling cautiously optimistic, and I've got that right now.
