I'll try to find a source, but as screwy as it sounds, I believe it is 75.

You're right - I swore they use to be further out. Maybe they changed it because on the roster exemptions being taken away?

They eliminated a step. It's 75, then 53 a few days later. Can't remember the exact dates but it all happens in the next 20 days.

The practice squad must be chosen on August 31 ( 1 day following the final roster). Maybe, they think that the extra 10 players may give more of a look for both the potential final roster and practice squad choices would make up for the more limited 80 man "choice."

Evidently, last year, the cut down schedule was similar (about a week apart)......and discussions on the boards posed similar questions, even with the comparatively expanded intial "choice."

The whole 80 guys in TC limit is very taxing, really should be at least 90.

I believe in Rick Smith. He has found gems like Demps and has plugged them into the starting lineup with amazing success. I am convinced that he will find that RB we need. Perhaps this year's Ryan Grant?

(on RB Ahman Green) “He has a slight pull in his groin. It doesn’t look severe. It looks like we’re pretty fortunate there. I’m going to list him as day-to-day right now. I kind of see him like (WR) Andre (Johnson) coming off that thing a week ago. I think if we were in the season and playing right now that we would push it harder and try to get him back quicker. I think right now we’ll be smart; we’ll list him as day-to-day. Chances of him playing this week, though, I would think would be very slim, but it looks like we’re very fortunate. It doesn’t look like it’s too severe.”

(on if it was disappointing to see RB Ahman Green go down so early) “Yeah, it’s very disappointing. After what we’ve been through and how important he is to the football team and how good of a camp he’s had, to have that happen on a play where you don’t even get touched, you know, it’s kind of deflating in a way. But, I think we feel better about it. We know we’re going to get him back, and so we’ve got to just stay positive and get these young kids ready to play.”
Quote:
(on bright spots of the game) “I guess I can go through all three phases. I’ll start with the special teams. There were some good things going on. I thought (WR) Harry Williams flashed; he’s been flashing the whole camp as a special teams player. (He) does a lot of things for (special teams coordinator) Joe (Marciano). Of course, Kris Brown was amazing in the game, kicking those field goals. He’s been special all along. Disappointed, of course, in the turnover, turnover gets them right back in the ballgame, and that’s something that (WR Jacoby Jones) 12’s had a problem with and we’ve got to get him back on to track so to speak. He’s got to protect the ball. We’ll do everything we can in practice to get him the drills to simulate that, but he has to do a better job from that standpoint.
Quote:
(on WR Jacoby Jones’ fumble on his punt return) “Yeah, he’s trying to do too much. At some point, when you can’t get to the edge, you have to stick your foot in the ground and get four or five (yards) and let the offense come on the field. If you reverse your field and lose ground, that’s not something we teach. That’s him trying to make a play but the bottom line is he’s still swinging the ball. That’s something he’s been doing, something we’ve been working on and something that he will get fixed. I promise, because whoever is going to be back there is going to protect the ball, and that starts with him. I’m disappointed in that and we have to get it fixed.”

I think this team pretty much has all the tools in place but that darn running game.
