I agree with your projections, although I'm hoping Brandon Williams makes the active roster over Simonson, but it does seem like they are subtly moving away from BWil. Also, just looking at WR... YUCK.
Yeah, I also abandoned that train Friday night. Not just because of the lack of snaps, but his quickness and speed have not done much for his PR ability either. A huge part of that might be the scrubs blocking for him once he gets in, but he just doesn't seem very decisive.
I thought about making a similar thread upon watching the replay of our game on NFLN that used the Patriots broadcast. Man, they are shameless in their homerism. It pissed me off in comparison to ours,because we're so fuging ho-hum and friendly. The Pats broadcasters are relentless! They sounded like our game day threads. Every play up for discussion, according to their broadcast, we did something dirty, tried to injure someone, took a cheap shot, the refs bailed us out, the refs didn't give the replay its due because clearly the Pats were just jipped. Whereas our broadcasts seem like we're trying to be fair to both teams and we don't want to offend anyone.
This is football, not politics. PLEASE DO OFFEND THE OPPOSITION. They are our enemy until the outcome is decided. I kind of think this attitude permeates everything related to our franchise culture, from the very top, to our local media (as displayed in this thread), all the way to the fans, and explains why I lot of fans feel they can disrespect us on our home turf. I love Mr. Richardson, but I feel we are just way too accommodating.
