I think Ramon Walker makes the squad and probably Jason Bell too, though his isn't really guaranteed. Hodgdon likely makes the regular roster, same with Weary just because there isn't much guard depth on the team. Also, the practice squad was expanded to 8 so a few more guys can be added. One of the coaches said Donovan Morgan will likely be put there so there's atleast one more.

At LB I think Polk makes it just because we don't have much depth at MLB and he's a vet there.

see i'm not so sure polk makes it...he isn't healthy and frank chamberlin has been the most productive linebacker on special teams...also bradford will be on the final roster...armstrong is a question mark in my mind because he isn't healthy...often times if you can't stay on the field during training camp and preseason you get passed on...that and the production of sloan thomas is impressive

I hope VMo will get #2 RB spot, and Wells #3 RB/FB...Im wondering if Wells will be in a similar role as Cooley (was), or Cushing (pit) playing TE/FB. If Murphy has a good game tmmrw I would like to see him at starting TE, from what Ive seen he looks to be country strong.

I thought Polk saw time at FB in training camp, and Wong saw time at TE. I could be mistaken though.

pretty much every team in the league has a roster sport for 'just' a LS. go out into your yard and try and snap a ball through your legs through the hole in a tyre 10 feet away. it aint easy, brother. then stand up and block a 300lb lineman. that aint easy either.

I kinda had the same idea about ditching the longsnapper but then i think about the fact that Mckinney is the starter and has enough trouble just blocking someone much less long snapping ...... :brickwall

Amazing LOL

TE Miller has better hands than any of them , Miller will be the starter again the only reason he didnt produce alot last year was because the play calls Palmer used didnt include him like the year before , i think they need to use the TE alot more than what they do.

and in my opinion , Wells will be the Back up and Morency 3rd , Hollings needs to go I thought he was gonna be good when they first aquired him bt I was wrong .

the rest of the positions i agree with most of you.

It would be nice to see Wells as the FB. He is definitely used to handling the ball. Don't forget that the FB is not in on 3 and 4 WR sets most of the time.

Murphy looked like a solid reciever in the last game. I sure hope they find a way to expand his role a little more this week.

Our OL does know how to run block. I would expect that Morency and DD will both have a good game tonight.

Bradford is a pretty safe bet to make the team IMO. The one question I have is who is our starter at SS? Haven't seen Earl play since his injury, and I don't know if they are just going to throw him in there against Buffalo.

You're probably right about Bradford, but with the talent we've seen displayed by our WR's this spring, it wouldn't come as a shock to me to see the club let him go. We don't necessarily need the cap space, but Bradford's cap hit this year is higher than any of the other WR's, with the exception of AJ. With Corey Simon being a FA now, I'd sure like to see the team make a run at him. That extra $800 K could go a long way toward helping that cause.

The way Brown has been playing, he might've had a solid chance of beating Earl out anyway, had he not been injured. As it stands, I'd put my money on Brown being the opening day starter for now.

I think Starling will make the team over Thomas. Star was a very good special teams player last year, a pretty good gunner. He's more proven I guess, but really I dont know, I just like him more than Sloan, maybe cause I've seen him more.

Unfortunately for one of the other recievers (and for us fans) ... Bradford will probably make the team . AJ, S.Thomas, Gaffney, Mathis, Swinton as well as Bradford are who I see making the final roster . Thomas has been the most reliable reciever on the team thus far . If he doesnt make the team ... someone needs their head examined .
Swinton has shown to be a valuable pick up and from another Casserly interview i heard on 610 am earlier in the week when asked about Mathis going to the practice squad ... all he did was laugh which leads one to believe that Mathis will make the team . The Texans expect him to make an impact ...Gaff hasnt been healthy enough to show much but he better do something in a hurry because if one of those other recievers gets a chance to get on the field Gaff may never get his job back .

As for G.Earl , i heard Casserly in an interview make a comment on him (I believe it was saturday just before kick off ?) ... saying that they would see how he was physically for next weeks game then make a decision as to who the starter would be for Buffalo . If he's physically able to I think you can count on him being the starter . Otherwise look for C.C.Brown to start opening day.
