Default The Turk

Who is the Turk for the Texans?

The deadline for the first cut to 75 is tomorrow, and the deadline for the final cut to 53 is on Saturday.

The Turk should probably be starting his grisly task today.

Considering we only have to cut 5 players, I don't expect to see any surprises.

Although, after Friday's performance I'd be whackin people left and right.

I think they should make Matt Turk actually BE "The Turk" and go round telling people "Coach wants to see you in his office.....bring your playbook" in a real somber voice.

What's the point of having a "Turk" on your team if he isn't THE Turk?

Sucks to be him on the day (hopefully a long way in the future) when he has to tell himself to go to the coaches office.

On the subject of cuts, did anybody see the Chiefs hard knocks series last year when they messed with a guy telling him he was cut before telling him they were playing with him.

Default Re: The Turk

I came across this old (2001) article from the Sporting News......"WHEN THE TURK COMES A KNOCKIN'"

It is dated by such facts as a 5 man practice squad, but the general principles and strategies teams use in timing their cuts are still germaine and interesting.

Krause will not be cut in the first round, he actually might make the roster depending on the FB situation.

We knew that Abbate was signed yesterday. With Cook and Williams gone, that means only 4 remain.

When are the cuts to 53...Saturday? I forgot that the tragedy to Harry Williams will be accounted for.

C Mark Fenton, WR Harry Williams, DT Gabe Long, T Cliff Washington, WR Darnell Jenkins. Although two less wr's may be unlikely during the first cut. (?)
