I have really been having a hard time figuring out that 6th LB spot between Tyrone McKenzie and Larry Dean. I think Audie Cole has the 5th LB spot locked up. What does everyone think. I cant see the team carrying more than 6 LBs.


I sure hope you are correct. Cole has much better instincts than either of those two.

Plus he is a rookie. Give him a year of NFL weight training, a full off season with the coaches, and I bet you will see a much improved player his second year.

Seeing them cut Tydreke Powell in favor of Chase Baker has me concerned.

Doesn't seem too complicated to me. Webb is just flat out not an NFL QB.


Twice Webb came into games last year and made a major impact. I don't know how you rank Bethel-Thompson over him, and for this particular team Rosenfels shouldn't be either.

The key here being last year, not every player maintains there level of play or improves yearly. Based on the pre season play, Webb probably had one of his most underwhelming preseasons to date. Will see if this carries over to the regular season. Its hard not to be discouarged by the lack of progression in a year where he spent the entire offseason focusing on being a QB.

Problem with Webb is when he is in the game a lot has to change to suit his strengths. You really don't want to be doing that. You want to run the same offense whether it is your 1st, 2nd or 3rd QB.

Suspended players do not count on the roster so he has no factor in deciding the 53 man roster for week 1.


Add Nick Reed and Trevor Guyton to the players cut.

Surprised Nick Reed was cut. Showed he could rush the passer. I think another team will take a look at him.

4 DEs are more than enough, considering how much Allen plays.

I hope the team can get Guyton on the PS.

DeGeare is gone, and with Love likely heading to the IR, it looks like the olive depth is pretty easy to figure out.

Chris DeGeare cut - surprising with Schwartz recovering and Love's injury.

need more olives.

in all seriousness, Schwartz should be healthy soon and Berger is versatile. the team seems to like Patrick Brown a lot so maybe he has made strides. I would imagine that the team will go out and sign a free agent lineman.

DeGeare doesnt do anything for me, kind of glad he was released. Love might hurt, though i wasnt much of a fan so his loss is very minimal. Charlie Johnson will be the backup LT, I would imagine, with Berger or Schwartz filling in at LG if Kalil ever does go down.

Vikings waived WR Emmanuel Arceneaux. Burton looks like he's safe.
