Brilliant spelling for such a dry article.

No way a Fox team only carries 3 RBs.

Fail.

I think he did last year, with 1 on the PS. It started w/McGahee, Moreno and Ball on the roster and Johnson on the PS. When Moreno went on IR they called up Johnson and later signed Omon to the PS... I think.

Here's a rough sketch of how I see things possibly shaking out, although we can usually count in picking up a guy or two another team cuts.

(3) QB: Manning, Osweiler, Weber
(3) RB: McGahee, Hillman, Ball
(1) FB: Gronkowski
(6) WR: Decker, D.Thomas, Stokley, Caldwell, Willis, Hill
(3) TE: Dreessen, Tamme, J.Thomas
(2) C/G: Walton, Blake
(3) G: Beadles, Kuper, Ramirez
(4) OT: Clady, Franklin, Clark, Hills

(5) DE: Dumervil, Wolfe, Ayers, Jackson, Beal
(4) DT: Warren, Bannan, Vickerson, Unrein
(6) LB: Woodyard, Mays, Miller, Trevathan, Irving, Mohamed
(5) CB: Bailey, Porter, Harris, Florence, Bolden
(5) S: Moore, Adams, Carter, Leonhard, Bruton

(3) ST: Prater, Colquitt, Paxton

Susp: TE Green, LB Williams

Omon isn't practice squad eligible.

I say we run with 4 RBs.

No way Beal stays on our PS if he even makes it there. He's flashed way too much imo to not get picked up by somebody short on potential pass rushers.

We will have some interesting cuts. I don't see how Leonard or Brooking make the team. They haven't been able to play a down. I think Blake may come up with an injury.

Even though I think Moreno hasn't shown much.... If we keep 3 rb's Ball should be the one to go.

I didn't even finish reading this Article, all credibility was loss when they put Xavier Omon on the 'Practice Squad'... I've heard more than once Omon has been in the league long enough on multiple teams.. that he has 'no' eligibility left for the Practice Squad.

Its either make the 53-man roster or find another team.

They project Beal to make the team...it just says "practice squad" because that's what he did last year.

Interesting that Mason projects the Broncos to carry only 2 QB's, which frees up an extra spot on Defense. He did that with his last roster projection, so it may stick.

It's a good idea to keep Brooking around after the LB display against Seattle. Keeping Leonhard over Tony Carter is a good idea too.

Incorrect.

Why would CBS Sports borrow from docbear's blog?

If they did... i'm sure he'd fire off a terse email of condemnation!

I think errand is referring to a thread I made a few days ago that had "Brooking cut" in the thread title. That old thread was just an IAOFM projection.

Just so you know - that "Practice Squad" he put in parenthesis is not his projection of where Omon will end up. It is the player's status from last year (when Omon was on the practice squad). I think it is something the CBS site tags. For example, the site says this for the quarterbacks:
QB -- In: (2) Peyton Manning (free agent, Colts) and Brock Osweiler (second round, Arizona State).
His actual Practice Squad projections are at the bottom:

Leading practice-squad candidates -- (8) QB Adam Weber, WR Gerell Robinson, TE Anthony Miller, OL Adam Grant, OL Austin Wuebbels, DT Ben Garland, LB Steven Johnson, S Duke Ihenacho

That makes more sense. It would be nice to see Garland stick around. He's a good story. You want to see a guy like that make it. Anthony Miller has made some good catches. Shame to see him getting squeezed out by new guys coming in. But that's life in the NFL.

Montrose,

Any chance they try to move KM for a low round pick or will teams just wait to see if he is cut?

I think at this point, Hanie is bad so we could just roll with 2 QBs in Manning and Osweiler.

I think it would be prudent to have a 3rd QB for at least the 1st 6 games of the year, if Manning is still progressing or holding fast then we could think about dressing 2 or cutting Hanie. If Manning goes down we need a guy who knows how to call the plays and get the O to the line, Hanie sucks but he can do that much.
