The first cut is after the Dallas preseason game and then the 2nd cut is after the Tampa game. I'm not saying there is logic in that. I'd think they'd either even out the cuts or just cut everyone after the last preseason game. I'd think most of the coaches pretty much know the guys that are going to be cut. At least it gives them more players in that last game to use so they can fully rest the starters.
The late cuts makes it tough planning fantasy drafts. How do I know if I should draft David Carr if he might not even make the Giants roster? Which backup kicker do I take?
