It would be a mistake to cut him at this point. KB is out, Funch is gimpy, Brown has the yips, and nobody else has exactly stepped up this preseason. He's nothing special but at this point he's more likely to contribute on the field than somebody like Mayo. Also if we cut him he will certainly get picked up somewhere unlike Mayo who we can probably PS and call up later if a need develops.
Well I'm going to the Saints and Colts games so I definitely would prefer we win those but of all the games I'm not paying to attend it would absolutely be the Dallas game. Beating everyones most hated team on a national holiday when everybody will be watching would be awesome. Humiliating them would be orgasmic.
I think lobbying to cut him is an overreaction but its getting harder and harder to see why he continues to start. Lets get some other guys out there with the 1's and see how they do. Just handing it to him regardless of how he plays reeks of the kind of bone headed team management that cost us a big chunk of last season.
I suppose theres a chance he makes it on to the PS, but as RB's around the league start to drop the odds of him not eventually getting plucked off there are pretty low, IMO. The current regime certainly loves it veterans so its always a safe bet to predict the young guys who are producing are going to get the shaft over the coaches favorite when cuts are made around here.
I agree with this however it would also be in poor taste for a few million Americans to sneak into Spain and then demand Spain cater to the fact they didn't speak the native language and then call anyone who had a problem with their ignorance of the native language a racist. Wonder why people who would.be horrified at a bunch of Ugly Americans doing that in another country are OK with people doing just that in this country.
Someone should compare the gun murder rates of US citizens of a European or Asian ancestry with those other countries. That would be a more relevant comparison. Or they could compare our rates with Central American and African countries. Wonder how those charts would look? Or is there some other reason we are only ever compared with primarily lily white/asian countries? Perhaps the makers of these types of biased charts would secretly prefer we look like the other countries listed and are upset with all violent murdering nonwhites who live here. Seems like they could just come out and say they wish the US racial makeup was more like Norway or Sweden instead of pretending like their problem is actually with guns instead of all those pesky non aryans who insist on living here.
I would say average at best. Now if Stew stays healthy all season, Cam takes the next step and our Oline comes together in real games and performs like we all hope they can then maybe you could argue we would be above average. Lots of things still have to happen however.
Tip or no tip an elite WR goes up and gets that ball before the defender even has a shot at making a play on it. That way they either have the only chance to catch it or they draw the PI call because the defender will be forced into them. I know thats easier said than done but, ideally, thats what would have happened on that ball instead of CB just waiting for it to float into his fingertips. SS was one of the best at doing that despite being smaller/shorter than just about everybody he was going up against.
I know that roster scenario is meant to be a bit of an extreme example of going all in on youth but, looking over it, it really makes the most sense from a "what they've done so far this year" perspective. It also sets us up nicely for the future with guys we can plan on being here long term. All this without really giving up anything, at least from a performance perspective thus far this year. I doubt we see all those moves happen but hopefully most of them will. I think it would be for both the long and short term benefit to the team.
