I think they're keeping some of the guys in positions of strength for potential trade leverage.


Several teams are RB hungry, same with CB's.


You could also point to a shift in personnel best suited for ST play?

We kept a lot of people because of versatility. A. Smith, Jones, White, Senn, Brockel, Addison, Naka, D.J. Moore, and Blackburn. We drafted that way late as well. Klein and Barner.

Agree with previous posters that the bottom of the depth chart is generally for special teams, so at that point a 4th HB, 6th WR, 6th CB etc. essentially play the same in-game positions if they are active.

My point being Stewart factored into the numbers whether he was active or not, so by keeping Smith, we technically kept 5.


smith is there to keep stewart's seat warm.

I am sooooo drunk. You're going to have to make this a, "Choose A or B" for me to give you anything. Before you do, I choose B.

Now, back to being serious, we won't start the season with 5 WR's. This is where the process begins, not ends. Gettleman is no idiot. He is scanning all there is to scan like Sauron in the Lord of the Rings.

Now, back to drinking and the Gettis thread....

I actually think we start the season with five receivers.

I definitely do not think we are done. I keep refreshing my sites to see who we pick up from other cuts.  I like the direction though.  The new GM is addressing ALL needs whether it was through draft for FA.  He is not done...

I think they would choose between him and Byers since both backup C.

I agree but big difference between coaching Cam vs. the entire offense. Cam is not our offense he is our QB, regardless of his first two years, he'll have to play less a role in some areas for us to actually win some games.


I hope Shula can do it, just have to wait and see.


I mean really all we needed was a few minor tweaks to the offense to make it damn effective, and thats part of why it took off late in the season.  Do a little less out of the shotgun, do a little more under center.  Do a few less read-option plays, do a few more conventional runs.  Last but not least, HAVE CHECKDOWN ROUTES.  I can't tell you how often we'd put Cam in the shotgun on 3rd and 7 and send 3 guys deep and nobody sniffing around the first down marker only to see Cam get sacked 2 seconds later.

The redskins have 4 qbs. Think we'll see Pat White and RG3 running some crazy pistol formation?

Folkerts is on the roster because of Byers injury, once that heals up Folkerts will probably be let go and put on the practice squad.
