My fear is we are going to see playcalls from the 60s. Then again after Smith and LaFell we just had some dudes like most years.

Cam is still the QB....and Shula knows what he can do. He got Chud a HC gig. He is that awesome. Shula won't sit on that

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.

4 RBs


Stewart would be the 4th if off PUP and Smith gone

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

Brockel mainly plays FB on GL blocking plays and such, so he basically counts as a FB since that's where they list him now position wise.

This party is not over ...we will see some moves soon I would imagine.I think we will see a couple of things...The first is back filling for special team value and the 2nd is upgrading our depth . I could see him bringing in maybe 1 or 2 starters at the most if the need and value are there.

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.

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.
