Any thoughts who will make a last impression on Kubiak for the final cut down to 53 for tonights game?

Derrick Lewis will either make 4th WR or 5th behind Anderson.

This game will decide our Fullback.

McKinney?

Will we get to see Quinton Porter again?

9th DL slot.

add more as I think of it.

I would like to see more of who is fighting for the backup LB spots and yes, I think we will see some more of Quinton Porter as well as Cody Pickett.

Can't think of anything else...

I want to see Orr and Anderson tonight, along with Derrick Lewis vs other receivers and even Antwion Smith and Chris Taylor.

If you want to know who makes the team, and who gets cut, watch for the special teams standouts, and goats. Kubiak wants the bottom of the roster to contribute here.

Just ask Derrick Armstrong. Poor guy; I loved the way he could catch the ball.

Now that Demeco Ryans has solidified himself as MLB should we cut Cowart or keep him on as a veteran presence to help teach our younger LB? If we cut him though what kind of cap penalty would we take if it is too big then there is no way we need to get rid of him that bad.

Cowart signed a two year deal with a little over a mil in signing bonus. His cap hit if he starts the season on the roster is $1.2 mil. If he is released the signing bonus will be the hit so actually a savings of about $200k but with a mil of dead space.

Why do you want to see Orr? Isnt he slated as a starter?

I want to see Cochran. I think this guy is a diamond in the ruff, he seems to have a high motor and pretty good instincts. He should stand out tonight with all the PT he is going to get. I'm also interested in seeing Troy Evans for an extended time, I know he's going to make the team, but I want to see him playing major minutes and see what he can do aside from being a great special teamer.

Probabaly the most meaningless game (for us as fans) of all tonight.

I would say that Kubiak and Co. have pretty much already made their list of 53 by now, and now they've highlighted a few guys who are "on the bubble" to watch closely and see what they do.

I would expect that there's very little wiggle room. Somebody would have to turn in a very spectacular performance tonight in order to change their minds at this stage. I really think it's almost a done deal in terms of who's staying and who's not. Plus, you never know who might get hurt tonight, bumping a guy up the list (IF said player performs well).

Heck. I'd like to see absolutely zero of our starters play a single snap tonight. Go get some guys off the street to play tonight if we need depth for this game. When was the last time we had almost ZERO significant starters get hurt in the preseason? Seems like we almost always had a 1/2 dozen or so of our good players go down with freakish injuries during the preseason.

Of course, I'd be prone to get hurt, as well, if I were playing for Doomed Capers' team. That hamstring would get tweaked very often. :hides:

I would think the both of them will get an ample amout of PT. I don't even know who Pickett is, much less seen him play. Sage might play a few series at the most I would think. We'll see and hopefully we'll still get the "W".:bananasplit:

09-01-2006, 12:42 AM
Since we need some help at S I think we should keep our eye on an undrafted rookie from West Virginia named Mike Lorello. He is currently on the Steelers roster and I dont know if he is going to make the cut or not but if he doesnt we should be all over him. He is a hard hitter who was a stud in college. He played bandit safety and showed up when we need him. PLus I am sure he would come cheap and could sit for awhile and learn the system. I would LOVE to get this guy!!!!!!!1

Wasn't this guy released earlier and then resigned?

I think that several of our cuts will get looks elsewhere.

Bears trim roster by 11

NFL.com wire reports

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Sept. 1, 2006) -- The Chicago Bears terminated the contract of veteran offensive lineman Steve Edwards and waived injured linebacker Jeremy Cain, cutting a total of 11 players.

That trimmed the roster to 63.

The Bears also waived wide receiver Craig Bragg, defensive back Dion Byrum, defensive tackle Delbert Cowesette, defensive back Abraham Elimimian, running back Andre Hall, defensive back Jason Harmon, defensive back Carlos Hendricks, guard Travis Leffew and wide receiver Mark Philmore.

The Bears must cut 10 more players before Sept. 2 to get to 53 by the opening game.

Wow, I thought Cochran and Luchey would make it. Smith as well. David Anderson made the squad as well. Every Texans' draft pick made the team if I'm correct.

09-01-2006, 03:08 PM
Nooooooooooooooo! I wanted to see Antowain Smith play here one year since used to watch him at UofH. I do understand the move as Taylor has so much speed.

But as he said:

Smith, for his part, insists he'll take the decision in stride, whichever way it goes.

"What's there for me to worry about?" he said. "I played nine years, won two Super Bowls, made lots of money. What more could I ask for? If my career (ended) today, I don't have nothing to be ashamed of."

Godspeed Antowain you did have a great career.

My guess at the practice squad:

Cochran, Earl
Curtis, Kevin
Luchey, Nick
Pettway, Kenneth
Porter, Quinton
Ross, Richie
Walker, John
Williams, Tramon

I'm suprised to see Sam Cowart go. And I thought Shifino was doing nicely, but I guess that wasn't good enough to make the team. Glad to see the David Anderson and Chris Taylor both make the team. If DD can't play this year, we've got a very inexperienced and young but very talented trio behind him.

Unless Kubs has another "workhorse" that he is sure will come in, I think that the release of Smith may come back to haunt. I would be surprised if Smith were not picked up on waivers, but I wonder if the Texans feel that he will clear, and may be available if the situation dictates his return after they have had a chance to "explore."

I wasn't sure about Luchey, and I just remembered about Curtis, since he was selected in the draft in '02.

I really thought that Curtis had a shot, I like him a lot and he showed in preseason that he can get the job done with his two picks.

I know that it will be simultaneous with the waiver claim, but I know he wants more speed at linebacker, he's still not satisfied with the interior DL, he wants another running back, and possibly another quarterback. He's got first dibs, and I think there will be some interesting pickups.

I think it sucks that all of these topics have been merged into this one, a topic that was started a day ago and I had to dig several pages in to find the list of cuts.

At least edit the first post to have the cuts in it. Or let a topic be started that has all the cuts in the first post.

Dayne has had severe turf toe problems this whole preseason. The Texans need an intact tough "workhorse" fully functional RB NOW. We do not have the luxury of using a roster spot to nurse a player on the sidelines.............Beware, can you say Deion Sanders?.........Eddie George?

For the record.

I think it sucks that all of these topics have been merged into this one, a topic that was started a day ago and I had to dig several pages in to find the list of cuts.

At least edit the first post to have the cuts in it. Or let a topic be started that has all the cuts in the first post.

very very frustrating.
And yet they leave all of those different BS threads from the Eagle fans as different posts, go figure....

I just don't see what you see.

I see a guy who was on a good team, a popular team in that area, and I see someone who is more style than substance. Physically, I see a guy who is thin, hasn't been healthy from the very start.

I'm happy with AJ, Moulds, Walter, Anderson, Joppru, Putzier, Daniels, and Mathis when he returns. I'm pretty set.

Cowart's a bit of a surprise, but considering Ryans has earned the starting spot at MLB it seems like a good idea to let Cowart go. Also, as AT & Porky mentioned Evans & Polk can both play the middle, and they both are better on ST than Cowart. I wish the guys that got cut the best of luck & I hope they get picked up by another team.

Rogers would interest me also. He's obviously got some talent or he wouldn't have been the #2 pick in the draft a few years ago. I'd give him a tryout. Couldn't hurt. To be honest, I haven't seen anything for Walter that makes me go "Gee, I'm glad we signed that guy".

I would consider giving Rogers a looksie. I know he's had his trouble, but a change of scenery probably would help him out. He's not going to take anyone's spot, but for a 4th,5th reciever we actually might benefit from this. The guy has alot of football left in him, plus we can get him for real cheap.

Sorry for your speech impediment! (just kidding)

I'll repeat my thoughts on WR Rogers from another thread:


The Texans have 1st dibs on the waiver wire. However, in the case of Rogers, there are a lot of questions. Remember the big controversy of AJ vs Rogers in the draft. Well since then, Rogers has demonstated less than stellar work ethic. He has had 2 freak collar bone fractures in 2 seasons. But probably most important to the Texans evaluation may be the 4 game suspension last year for substance abuse. He's now nursing a "sore knee" which does not sound like a big thing, but has not been characterized. He may come cheap, and may have great potential. But if the Texans determine that he is "trouble in a bag," his fate is to be passed on.

CnD--just an FYI--Lundy had 52 TD's in college and was known for having a nose for the endzone and short yardage situations. As we have seen from Wells vs. DD--bigger doesn't always mean better for finding the endzone. Two other examples which spring to mind are Emmitt Smith and Priest Holmes.

I would love to see us pick up either Lions cut Rogers or Williams. These guys are athletes and can stretch the field plus it never hurts to have a little depth. These guys have never really had a QB to get them the ball and with the Texans they have that chance. With Moulds, Johnson, and one of these guys we would have one of the best, if not the best receiving corps in the league.

Williams has such a bad work ethic he was fined over $400k last year for being overweight. He also has shown zero on the field since the 2003 college season.

I suspect Rogers might be temping for a team like the Raiders, but most likely
not the Texans.
Then there's his sidekick Mike Williams, another Detroit Lion player who
because of the Trojan hype machine where he played his college ball had his value incredibly inflated.
Texans usually give these types a wide berth.

Normally, it is some version of the player has to be on the 53 man squad for so many weeks during the season or some similiar condition. Cutting Pickett almost guarantees the trade is voided.

Good point.......I've just not seen the Eddie George/Priest Holmes goal line pushes yet from Lundy.......maybe not enough opportunities. But we definitely do need ONE such RB since we have failed to convert on a number of short yardage downs.

He is a rookie offensive lineman you won't see many rookie offensive lineman play all that much although it does happen, and I don't know why he is on third team though.



also with him being on 3 team instead of 1st or 2nd does not worry me one bit.

I'm with CND on this. Tha's why I mentioned Dayne (forgot about his turff toe thing). I would seem to me that we need a short yardage banger type back to complement the ones we have.

Again: I don't know what his value is, but I guess we're all entitled to our opinions.

Some guys can have their careers resurrected. Maybe Carr and Harrington are on their way to doing just that. And others (Rogers in this case, IMO) I don't think ever really had a shot in the first place.

We probably will only go with two QBs with a third signed to the practice squad. This is how Denver has been doing it for about 4 years now.

Did anyone else notice how many O-Linemen and D-Linemen we kept? I counted 11 O-Linemen (12 if you count Pittman the LS) and 9 D-Linemen. I think I remember Kubes saying something about keeping up to 9 D-Linemen, but I don't remember him saying anything about keeping that many O-Linemen. I look for this to be an area where there might be some more cuts. Possibly Bedell and/or Salaam.

I think they kept Bedell because he can play guard or tackle, and since they only had 3 other guards (McKinney,Pitts,Weary) they probably figured they better hang on to Bedell in case McKinney has anymore injury problems. I also think they kept Salaam because Wiegert is pretty old and they wanted someone, other than rookie Eric "Caveman" Winston, with more experience to back him up or in case he gets injured.

I do think also that these could be positions that Kubes is looking to improve on through the waiver wire. Either way, I can't see them carrying 12 O-Linemen. JMHO!

Frank Schwab, of the Gazette, reports Denver Broncos QB Bradlee Van Pelt has been informed he will be cut Saturday, Sept. 2, according to his agent Matt Brei. Brei said he was told the Broncos staff was still debating Friday morning, Sept, 1, whether to keep two or three quarterbacks. He said the staff decided to keep QB Jake Plummer and first-round pick QB Jay Cutler and let Van Pelt go.

Derick Lewis is the second string behind Dre is tht a change. That makes him fur and David Anderson 5. It looks like we could put Anderson on the practice squad and look to pick up a kick returner off waivers. There is always a good return man who could not make it as a reciever available on the wire.
