33 times that Tanner has been released or resigned. This guy deserves to make the roster!!

Didn't say we had to. I meant to make it over Stills, Toon, or Parker.


See my edited post.

The only one who doesn't have a roster spot locked is Parker, but he's our best returner and would be a tough cut.


Better than Sproles? Confused


He very well could be. Sproles has only scored once on a kick/punt return in his time here. Parker has had a few nice returns. Sproles gets a lot of yards because he takes so many kicks out, but he rarely makes it past the 20. He's not the returner he used to be.

Not to mention, it's pretty obvious Payton doesn't want Sproles to be our return guy. He had Cadet frequently replacing him last year (he returned 26 kickoffs) and this preseason he's been trying LOTS of people in the return game. Has Sproles taken any returns? Maybe once, but I don't know for sure.


Payton didn't put Cadet in on returns. Vitt did.
Duh!! Embarassed Laughing

But yeah, Payton isn't using him this preseason either.


Well, like you said. It's preseason. You know who the best is, it's more like Payton is holding tryouts for back up returner. Not trying to be a jerk, but....

Also, Andy Tanner. That is all.

Great screen by Cadet followed by a Khiry dropped pass on that drive. This is getting juicy. Something tells me that battle is coming down to next week.

Over who though? That's the problem (a good problem to have)

Not playing someone at all is a bit different that pulling someone in the 2nd or 3rd. Don't you think?

Twice now, Tanner has scored then made or assisted on the tackle on the ensuing kick. Making his case! Our WR battle is getting interesting... Cool

The 53 best players deserve to make the roster. He needs to prove he's one of those 53. He may very well be and may very well make the team, but giving guys charity roster spots is a terrible way to run an organization.

Our FO has made some questionable decisions before, yes? I mean we started Shanle for YEARS. I don't necessarily think it'll happen, I think it's Tanner v. Parker, but can't count any possibility out.

He had 10 touches last week. Only Khiry Robinson saw more action out of all the RBs, WRs, and TEs.

Confused

But they've already picked Courtney Roby, Greg Camarillo, and Adrian Arringtons over Tanner in the past. Do you think Roby, Camarillo, and Arrington were better than Stills or Toon?

It's not like our staff isn't familiar with Tanner, they've proven in the past that whatever they have in him, they like other fringe guys better. He didn't make it in the past, I doubt he's going to make it now on a more talented WR corps. The ONLY one he has any shot at taking is Parker, but even Parker had a 2 TD game.
