    Smith Had One Long Run. Taylor Was Consistent. Do We Keep Both Or Cut One?

    I'd keep all four of them. If one had to go I'd keep Morency, Lundy, and Taylor. I'd have to waive Smith.

    Ideally though I'd hang on to the four of them and only carry two QB's with another one on the practice squad.

    i'm pretty sure we're going to keep all 4. whether taylor is on the 53, or is put on the practice squad is probably the biggest question at this point. i personally am not sold on smith though.

    I hope they keep all four of them. Not sure if it's the system, talent, or combination of both working together, but our running game has looked great in these pre-season games. Hope it's a sign of things to come!

    Smith is the only defined "Clidesdale" in the group........and he showed us he has enough gas and power to break a long one.......against 2nd team or not. It would be a mistake to get rid of him. With our system we will keep 4 horsemen.

    I think both will make the team. We have to also look at the fact that all preseason no one other than Taylor was on special teams returning punts. Lundy did it alittle in the first game other than that, that's it. I see the texans doing just like Denver in only having two QB's on the team, putting D. Davis on IR. That free's two Roster posts to keep 4 running backs and maybe 4 Tight Ends. Don't know if Bruener made the squad yet.

    Yeah, I said Lundy saw alot of action back there in his first game, but other than than that nothing extensive, Rhodes did see time but was ineffective. With this being the last cut, I think Taylor will make it because he has something to offer on special teams. Antoine doesn't. That doesn't mean he won't be on the team though.
