30 yrs later, its still funny

back to topic...
I find it interesting that no one is giving Spencer any chance of making it back to his starting job - or even supplanting Salaam as a backup OT

I find it more interesing that anyone thinks Spencer has a chance to come back as a starter based on how it's all evolved and how it came down at the end of OTAs. It wouldn't shock me if he's cut before camp as part of the 80 pare when the rest of the draft choices sign.

I think Smithiak are still trying to give Spencer every reasonable chance to make a comeback. I'll admit that I would be mildly surprised if he got cut before T/C but it wouldn't shock me if he didn't make the final 53.

I'm going to be surprised if he makes it to TC. I hope he does make it and I'm cheering for him but from what I was hearing here during the OTAs and minicamp, I don't think he's going to.

Default Re: Predict the 53-man roster

If I remember right, Kubiak said the next step was to see how he did around a pile. Unfortunately he and the coaches apparently didn't feel comfortable even trying that yet. I never heard anything more about it from the staff. I would assume if he does get "stress" tested on the field and doesnt measure up they will almost certainly have to make some kind of injury settlement and then release him, although I'm not really sure how that works. I personally think we are a bit thin still at OT if he is released or doesnt play. I think most teams would like to have 4 to 5 able OT's to start camp with.

Having absolutely no evidence to provide, I believe he worked fairly extensively last off-season at the tackle position.

Regardless, it's true, I may prefer a guy who played 1/2 season at RG last season over Salaam at LT... That doesn't hurt my credibility does it? If it does, then I take it back!

Default Re: Predict the 53-man roster

we have alot of guys that "could" play tackle. I said "capable" as in can do an adequate job now, in a starting or swing role at the NFL level and are slotted as a tackle on the depth chart. Briesel, Pitts and Frye will probably only be at a tackle spot in an emergency/injury relief role, and Salaam I believe is a liability in the run game. wich leaves... Brown (rookie), Winston, and Butler. Ofcourse that's just my oppinion.

Brisiel substituted at G in 4 preseason games in '07. He started at G in 4 regular season games after Weary got hurt.
