Final Panthers Cuts

Recommended Posts

lol at Fozzy will definitely clear waivers but weghers won't. Weghers is almost, just almost as overrated as Lee Ward was on these boards. Fozzy proved to be a very useful player last year. He was the only RFA signed to a 2 year deal and was a captain last night with Klein and Jansen. It would be such a stupid decision to cut him for Wegher who hasn't proved a thing against first stringers.

Fozzy is surprisingly stout as a blocker. Wegher is not. I think with who runs our offense that is a deciding factor in who makes the squad.

Well,, we know  Rivera likes players he already knows (  ie  San Diego east )   and that is the check mark in Fozzy's  column .. so Brandon probably won't be the player kept..  and I think those of you who think Brandon won't clear waivers , are also correct.

I hope we I'm wrong on the above.

The Carolina Panthers must get down to 53 players by Saturday at 4pm. 

There are a few large question marks still regarding the final roster. Ron Rivera has said 9 positions are up for grabs, more than any season in recent memory. 

I suspect we will see Brian Folkerts waived and then put on IR. I thought Mike Remmers did well at center and rookie Daryl Williams did well at RT, making Folkerts expendable. 

Also will be interesting to see how the running backs shake out. My fear is they keep Fozzy over Wegher, which is a mistake, imo. Fozzy would clear waivers and is still practice squad eligible. Wegher I feel would be snatched up by any number of teams looking for a young healthy back (Texans, Chiefs, Steelers, etc). 

Over at tight end, Simonson has looked sure handed in pass catching, but dismal in run blocking. Brandon Williams will probably get the final tight end roster spot with Marcus Lucas again a practice squad project. 

On the defensive side, has Rakim Cox done enough in preseason to get a jersey? Does David Gettleman cut his first draft pick in David Mayo? 

We will know soon enough. 

As a reminder, the Panthers roster on Sunday probably will not be the final 53. Typically roster moves are still made into week 1 of the NFL. Bubble players typically continue to get cut on Mondays and Tuesdays as free agents are signed.

Brandon Williams will bring that physciality like KB did to the passing game. You saw how pumped Cam was after one of his recepiton running over a Steeler.

Was Whitaker responsible for the blocked punt last night? If so, that may play into the decision today. 

Ward wouldn't have allowed it.

 

Just say'n.

Please let today be the day they finally cut Amini. 

 

How anyone ever thought he'd be better than Alshon I have no idea, thanks Hurney

I don't understand the love fest for Wegher.  All the other backs looked better last night.  Stop worrying about him passing wavers because he will clear with ease.

Fozzy looked the most average last night again.

I think Amini gets cut.  He has been often injured, and when healthy has been ineffective.

Yeah, in my projected cuts at RB, I had Fozzy the odd man out for the reasons Jeremy listed above.  He just looked the most average and unimpressive of the group, and Todman's speed/quickness makes Fozzy fairly expendable, as that was his role.

That being said, I have no ties to any player at the position really.  I wouldn't be broke up with any decision they made there, but I feel the best group is Stew, CAP, Todman, Wegher.  I think Rivera's attachment to Fozzy will make their decision very difficult though.

On this, we agree.

I think Fozzy played only sparingly last night because he's safe, and I agree he should be. He's arguably the best screen pass runner we have.

The fight for the final RB spot was between Wegher and Todman, and I think Todman won.

And while it is very possible Wegher gets picked up on waivers, I don't buy that it's an absolute lock.
