Default Some Tough Choices For Kubiak Ahead

I don't know about you guys, but I would hate to have Kubiaks job deciding who to cut this year. We have ALOT of competition at numerous positions.

Wide reciever seems the toughest so far. We haven't really seen anything from Mccardell and Bethel Johnson. I think we got 4 solid guys with AJ, Walter, Jacoby, Andra Davis. Jerome Mathis makes it 5 and David Anderson would make it 6. So I guess it's Mccardell and Bethel fighting to live?

Linebacker has some tuff battles too

I think Stanely is gone

What's your thoughts so far on the big cuts comming up?

I don't think we can cut Andre Davis. All preseason he's had sure hands. I'd even start him over Walter.

Default Re: Some Tough Choices For Kubiak Ahead

I think we have 3 sure bets at wide receiver:

AJ
Walter
Jacoby Jones

Andre Davis, Jerome Mathis, Keenan McCardell, David Anderson, and Bethel Johnson fighting for a spot. I think Mathis and Davis have the heads up there, but it may still be up for grabs. McCardell has been disappointing as has Bethel Johnson.

The 3rd running back position is up for grabs too. Gado and Lundy are fighting for that job.

But most importantly....bye, bye Chad Stanley

Mathis is a sure bet as well. The question remains how many other WR's will the Texans keep and who will they be?

Everyone keeps leaving Charlie Adams out of the competition for WR. Has been mentioned several times in the camp reports, plus maybe several good catches during the games. But like everyone else says it is going to be a tough decision.

Also heard they have a big decision on Frye as well, they want him on practice squad but don't think he will clear waivers.

Good point about Adams - he had nice catch last week for a TD. It is gonna be tough but hey I'd rather have this way than for us to be scratching around.

Default Re: Some Tough Choices For Kubiak Ahead

My top 5 WRs are AJ, Walters, JJ, A.Davis, & Mathis but after that I dunno who's next. Do we keep 6 or 7 WRs ?
I think Gado should be our top backup to AG, so my top 3 is easy: AG, Gado,
& Dayne.
What about FB ? Cook dropped another ball last night. Even though he's experienced I think I'd keep Abbate over him even though he's so inexperienced. Could Pass be the #2 ?
Pickin the 6 LBs will also be real tough.
Thursdays game in TB is huge for a lot of players trying to make the roster and the coachs last chance to get a look-see for the 75 to 53 reduction.

This is why I started the "How many roster spots..." thread last week.

We're going to be losing some really good players next week. This is going to be really rough.

Andre played well ast night but it's the first full game i really got to see myself. I think he makes the squad though along with Mathis. IMO it's a battle for the last spot between everyoneelse.

LB will be interesting. I'd like to see Clark win the starter spot myself.

Do agree though Frye will probably be one of the toughest choices. Lots of upside and athleticism ; i know it's a later pick but i'd hate to see a draft pick go down the drain. I also don't think he'll clear waivers myself and i think we'd be better served keeping him

Know this might open some wounds here but any word lately on Spencer's rehab?

Well Adams didn't make the cut, nor Williams who I rated.

We are cutting some decent players.

I'd go into the season with six WR's....

AJ, JJ, KW, AD, JM, DA.....

McCardell and Bethel would be toast....

Yes and it was a damned good thread, which I bumped once I beleive.

David Anderson made a great catch last night. Might just be a case of too many guys for too few spots. That 1 is going to cut me to the bone. Eight guys going for four spots, somebody gotta go. Next twelve is going to realy hurt.

Very true, the next cuts we'll be getting rid of some decent players. However, it is a good sign and does speak well about our team's talent when the cuts are incredibly hard to make.

Only 1 more cut to be made before the the last preseason game.

Who will it be???

My guess is.... I actually have no idea, I was looking at the roster and there are no obvious candidates.

If I had to go on a limb I will say DE Victor DeGrate.

DeGrate has made some plays this preseason. If we cut him, I expect us to try to get him onto the practice squad.

Do we have to wait until after the last cuts to start signing guys to the PS?

Nice to be in the position to do so, though, eh?

I'm optimistic for the upcoming season.
