Default Re: Holliday's chances at making the team

4 games in preseason and 3 returns for TD, and a 60 yard return, he won't be on the waiver wire for long if we let him go.

I feel safe in saying that Holliday made the final 53 although losing that KO in the endzone just makes him that much more maddening.

that may be the touch that freaks them out...I'm not as sold that Holliday makes the roster as you.

It seems to happen more frequently in the endzone on KO's, but he's pretty lucky that he's only lost one this preseason. That being said, Holliday is the ultimate "I can fix this guy" type player. He's certainly special enough as a returner that if you can fix his bobbling on the catch, which I think he's done more of that than fumbling while running, he'd be absolutely gold. I think they have to at least start him on the squad and let him play his way off the roster in the regular season. As soon as he fumbles put in Forsett or McMannis or whomever can catch it and not lose it.

Default Re: Holliday's chances at making the team

I just keep going back to the fact that he can be completely taken out of the game.

Kick out of the endzone, punt out of bounds. The new rules have just made it that much more difficult.

If the guy turns into Devin Hester in the regular season, opponents just won't risk it..

Touchbacks only happened about a 50% clip for the league last year. There are plenty of kickers who can't really get it all that deep consistently. Not every punter is going to coffin corner him either.

Opponents kicking away from him is almost as good as actually kicking to him.

If I were to draw any conclusions from the game, I don't think they would've let him be on the field after the fumble, and wouldn't inexplicably take him out after his TD unless they were thinking they wanted to save him.

Trindon isn't going anywhere Vinny. The Texans know that the Titans are waiting in the wings if we were stupid enough to do that. There isn't enough bath salt in the world for Gary and Rick to snort up tonight.

The fact he took him out after his return clinches it. I guarantee you the conversation went something like this, "Ok kid, that's enough. Rest up and get ready for Miami".

You can't cut a player who returned 3 td's in such a small sample size. Would be foolish.

Yeah, a sample size is usually free or less expensive than an actual size so why not keep him? Please keep him. I want to see more sample size in action.

Go Holliday!!!

He'd never get to the Titans. The Colts would get first pick & if they can't find a place for him on their roster I guarantee Shanahan would snatch him up.

The Redskins already have a return guy similar to Trindon that they love in Banks. But yeah I forgot about the final cut waiver wire rules. The point is he's not going to make it very far down the line. Teams drool over a playmaker on special teams. Hell, the Ravens signed our trash for 7+ MIL because they were so desperate for one.

It's been refreshing to watch Holliday. He takes what the other team gives, hits the seams and goes. Even when he goes sideways he goes actual sideways. Compared to Jacoby starting off every run by going backwards.

Shanahan already has a Trindon Holliday: 5'7" Brandon Banks.

fwiw, I think they wanted to see Forsett because they want to know he is the man if they go with a no Trindon roster version. Personally I'm with you guys thinking its likely he stays, but I understand their logic if they cut him. They are going to have to cut a good young player that will be picked up by someone since TH is forcing their hand so to speak.

I think he would play somewhere this season if not here. I picked a fine night to give up bath salts.
