Incredible what a new coach will do. Cut the dead weight and replace with high potential players.

JJ Jansen* (grammar nazi)

I would not rule out Armanti making this team and it appears you did not. I know most of the huddle is down on this guy but in Hurney's eyes he's a second year player. On paper he doesn't make it but if Gettis gets stashed on IR or PUP and one or two other guys go down, you could see him squeeze in.

I don't see Stanford or Pugh sticking. I would LOVE for Mare to get cut. Even if we go with someone young. I could stomach a 1st year guy missing a big FG. It just pisses me off when a kicker making almost as much as Cam, in his late 30s misses.

To Hurney's ( and to some degree Fox) the "core" plyers have remained although there have been a couple of key additions in Kuekly, Newton, Olsen and I hope Tolbert and Silatolu. I think the problem with the old regime is that once you were in the inner circle you were somewhat protected. In contrast, Rivera will kick you to the curb if you don't produce.

Armanti is as good as gone. Gettis, should be fine. They're just playing it safe, making sure he's 100% before the season starts.

Smith

LaFell

Gettis

Pilares

Adams

Murphy

Don't think they'll keep more than 6 WRs.

Those are most of the starters....but Chico is adding much better talent in the back up roles and building a good foundation.
