I'm not getting it. If we trust that Kubrick has a knack for finding these guys then so what if someone snatches him off the practice squad. Jeremiah & Ogbadala were those guys & we''ve done fine since then.

I like Forsett & would hate to lose him just as much as Grimes. Grime has ps eligibility, Forsett doesn't. I'd roll the dice & see what happens
I don't understand what ps eligibility has to do with anything.

Just keep the better player. If it's Forsett, keep him and try to get grimes on the ps as a caveat.

If it's grimes then keep him on the team and wish Forsett luck.

Why would you put grimes on the ps if he is the better player and can help the team more? Makes no sense to me.

Absolutely, if you think Grimes is the better player. But I don't. I also don't know if I would release my veteran backup at this position because it is possible that we'll finish the season with Forsett, Grimes, & a player yet to be named as our only healthy RBs. You never know.

This early into the season, if I have to start making those decisions, ps eligibility will play a major role in my decision making.

Default Re: Holliday's chances at making the team

Thanks for the read Doc.

Will continue to be interesting the remainder of PS since tomorrow the 'training camp' routine will be over giving way to the regular season gig. Trindon will get his shots.

I'd like to see him do well. He'll have to excel for two more games to be in the running for a roster spot though.

I read the averages earlier, I *think* the KO return was 26 and the PR was 11. I'd really like Holliday to do 27 & 12.

He's exciting to watch but if he falls short there's #82. Between the two I'm not cringing every time a ball get's kicked. I'm an underdog kinda guy. I hope Holliday can get it done. If not, K Mart gets the nod and that will be exciting as well.

Personally, I think the #3 RB slot is still wide open.

Meggett also did a fine job despite very few holes available.
None of these 3 guys seperates himself from the pack.

While PS eligibility is a concern, so is the salary we pay a player going forward.

It's a tough business the more success the team has.

If a young guy shows that he's close to fulfill a veteran's duty (especially as a backup where it's not very critical), the vet may find himself counting against the cap number.

I hate numbers!

Still doesn't make any sense to me. The better player should be on the roster.

We aren't discussing who we think is the better player right now. We are talking about the role practice squad eligibility plays on the decision making.

Makes no sense to me to cut a guy you think is better than the guy you keep simply because he's ps eligible.

If the late round draft pick o lineman, mondek, is better than who ever is in front of him would you like to see him cut too since he's ps eligible?

What about Lestar Jean? If he is better than Bryant Johnson would you like to see him cut since he has ps eligibility and bj is a vet?

I seriously don't get that line if thinking. Makes 0 sense to me.

PS eligibility should not be a part of the decision making process. Just keep the better player. Keep the guy you think will be more beneficial to your team.

I agree. I wasn't on the Holliday bandwagon before tonight but now, I don't see how he can be kept off the team. I expect our WR corps to be:

1. AJ
2. KW
3a. KMart
3b. Lestar
5. Posey
6. Holliday

But like you said, that means we're going to have to cut someone from somewhere.

We need to find a better name for Martin. KMart is reserved for a bum who quit on his team cus his feelings got hurt.

Why would that be? There's no way they would even attempt to cut their 3rd round pick or try to put him on the practice squad. Not like he won't have an opportunity to contribute.

What exactly is holding Trindon Holliday back from being something special as a wide receiver? He's faster and quicker than Keshawn Martin but obvously he's not nearly the route runner. I've been real impressed with both Lestar Jean and Keshawn Martin and feel they are earning their spots as not only three and four but two and three on the depth chart. In my eyes, Kevin Walter has fallen from two to four but Kubiak will pencil him in as the two regardless.

The mystery injury would be so they could stash him on IR instead of the practice squad or use up a roster spot.
