    This one area I will really be watching this preseason. I also want to see how Leinart looks.

    I agree i have never looked forward to pre season games, honestly never really cared if i saw any BUt i will be watching all of this season. We have so much talent at some positions that i want to see what they can do, especially at WR.

    i would say toliver, but who knows. i like D.D and would like to see him move up and consistently get starting PT in the regular season, i think its to close to call on which other WR will make the squad, thats what pre seasons for ;)

    From what I've heard, Toliver is out.

    At this point, I think it's DD, Jean, and either Maehl or Tounsel with the edge going to Tounsel.

    Yes, I think we're going heavy at WR this year.

    Well, I'd bank on Jean making the 53-man.

    I think Toliver is fighting him for that spot. I think Kubiak retains Maehl (sp?) as the little slot guy in the David Anderson role who plays ST, as well.

    Andre Johnson, Jacoby Jones, Kevin Walter, Dorin Dickerson, Lestar Jean, and Maehl (sp?). 7 WRs. What have we carried in the past?

    TEs: OD, Dreesen, Graham, and James Casey occupies a roster spot for FB or HB/FB and can be a TE if needed. Sound right? I don't see Hill making the roster because of injury issues. We can't hang onto a TE just because he blocks well in the passing game, IMO.

    There could be a new thread started from that link. All kinds of comments I want to make.

    Really? I thought he was playing well in camp and catching everything thrown his way. Was hoping Toliver would make the team, because I wouldn't want another team picking him up. He has talent. Rather have him on the team than Maehl.

    We can't carry more than 5 because we have too much talent at TE.

    Granted, AJ's twice as good as most WR's, but I think he still only counts as one - meaning you've listed six! Six Wide Receivers Ah-ah-ah!

    OD, Dreesen and ??? Casey is a FB now on the depth chart. The possibilty of keeping 2 FB's certainly throws a wrench into the roster. I hadn't thought of that before. :toropalm:

    Yeah BUT Casey can still play TE, so it kinda helps in a way

    And it also means we don't have to keep as many. I doubt Hill makes the roster and I don't know enough about Graham. Keeping 2 might be an option.

    yeah 2 plus Casey if needed will work. Just pray O.D stays healthy but if he goes down i have full confidence in Dressen, he has been a solid contributor in our passing game.

    Wr cuts are going to be interesting.

    I think that it will come down to how they play in the pre season. From what I'm hearing townsel is the real deal, so at this point I think he makes it. After that, I think Jean probably has the upper hand.

    I'm starting to wonder if Dickerson is a shoe in. I heard kubiak say that he knows who his top three are and everyone else is battling to make the team.

    Gun held to my pinky toe and I have to pick I'm going with 6 wr's with Dickerson, Jean, and townsel making the cut.

    I've got this sick feeling in my stomach that we're gonna cut a guy that goes to another teams and lights it up. We seem to have struck the motherlode of UDFA WR talent this year.

    OD, Dreessen, and Graham? Haven't heard anything about Graham during TC but would they cut a 4th rounder this soon?
