Default JJ Moses, still standing?

I know everyone here has their opinions but the preseason is where you show your stuff and this is the only guy I've seen return kicks or punts and do something with the ball. He hasn't returned any back for a TD but he has put the offense in good field position twice already.

Do you think he still gets the nod to be on the team after yesterdays performance?

I think he and Starling will be on the team. Who will not be is any ones guess at this point. JJ has showed the solid consitant play that Capers likes and Starling has shown potential at WR, but not near as much at KR.

JJ Moses should stay. He is the only guy on our team that returned kicks with some zip. Everyone else looked very hesitant and easy pickins to tackle. Especially Starling.

IMO we keep both Starling who has looked good as a WR and excellent on special teams and JJ. Last night JJ had 3 KR's averaging 30 yards. Possibly more importantly the returns were not typical JJ shuck and jive returns--JJ turned up field, showed good vision and on the first return hit an incredibly small hole between two of his blockers. If he can transform into a head up field first, shuck as a last resort guy he may make a significant leap in performance.

I think we keep JJ and Starling. If it means we carry one less player at another position then so be it. JJ is a good KR, and Starling has the dimension of being a quality WR and a good gunner. I also think Matt Murphy might have won a spot on the roster with all his good catches thus far in the preseason. It might mean Holloway won't make the roster though. Guess we'll find out Sunday.

So if we keep Starling and J.J. Moses we lose Armstrong?? I don't want to lose Armstrong!!

Which of these would end up on the practice squad, thus no playing time on the field??

Armstrong, great hands!
Starling, talented in different positions....lacks what J.J. has in returns though.
J.J. Moses, takes up roster spots and is really only helpful in returns...but no one has proved to do it better than he.

Nobody is suggesting that. I suspect they are going to keep 6 wr's: AJ, Bradford, Gaffney, Armstrong, Starling and JJ. Sloan Thomas to the practice squad.

There's no way JJ gets cut. Too bad his performance last year was forgotten by some and it took a preseason game to convince them.

I absolutely can't wait until next Sunday the 12th.

I think JJ is still standing and I think Starling makes the final 53 as well.

I hope that whoever said Starling couldn't tackle was watching when he laid the wood to that guy late in the game last night. OK, he didn't wrap him up but it was a great hit.

That was an amazing hit. That guy (Starling) never ceases to amaze me. I've been really impressed with him.

Me too, I'd be shocked if Starling didnt make the team. I have a feeling they'll keep Moses as well...

i haven't seen anything that leads me to believe we are keeping 6 WRs. Starling will beat out Moses purely on versatility. he can contribute as a WR and in special teams, both in returns and as a gunner.

I haven't seen anything on 6 WRs either.
