    Why do people post these kinds of thread? Do you really expect people to name all 53 players they want on the team?

    especailly when there is already one posted. And especailly when the author of the post doesn't have the gumption to post his own ? Bad rep behavior I'm thinking. Bad dog.

    Why all the hostility? He's pointing out that the preseason's done now so people don't need to hold their breath if they want to make their own predictions. By the way, can someone link the roster currently, before the cuts?

    And I am dead set on throwing Zac Diles to the wolves,
    He missed a tackle and then he missed a tackle then he missed a tackle,

    I watched him and he had a tendency to hit the ball carrier with out arms. Kinda like a chest bump, come on man this is Football

    I kept Diles in there because of the way Kubiak has praised him from his performance in practice. After the Cowboys game they were talking about Shantee Orr making the roster as the 7th LB/situational passrusher which would mean Diles is one of the 6 ahead of him.

    Kubiak's only been here for one year, and I'm not real sure how he evaluates the last couple of players and decides who gets the roster spots. For instance, I was a little surprised last year when he kept four tight ends.

    Clark missed more tackles than diles but neither was covering the tightends in the middle . I would keep darius walker over dayne all day and b. johnson over mathis

    Well, I haven't actually SEEN the game, yet... but...

    QB: Schaub, Rosenfels
    RB: Green, Dayne, Gado
    FB: Leach
    WR: Johnson, Walter, Jones, Davis, Mathis
    TE: Daniels, Bruener, Putzier, Dreessen
    T: Salaam, Black, Winston, Jackson, Frye
    G: Pitts, Weary, Studdard
    C: McKinney, Flanagan, White

    DE: Weaver, Williams, Kalu, Babin, Cochran, Orr
    DT: Okoye, Johnson, Zgonina, Maddox
    LB: Ryans, Greenwood, Anderson, Clark, Barber, Diles
    CB: Robinson, Faggins, Fletcher, Bennett
    S: Brown, Simmons, Harrison, Hutchins

    P: Turk
    K: Brown
    LS: Pittman

    And I expect them to try to put Zabransky, Abbate, and Walker to the PS. I'm not sure who else will go. They may try to sneak Frye through. Flanagan might also be let go. Lundy is just on the outside looking in, I think.

    If you'll notice, they've been working TE's and KW into motion and lining them up as FB's. They've mentioned several times that one of Dreessen's strong points is that he can be used as a FB. So, I think they stuff Abbate on the PS and if Leach has a problem, then they either bring Cook back or pull Abbate off the PS.

    I expect Pittman to be on the PS, or be gone completely. Dreessen is one of those multi-phase players Kubiak loves, and I believe he will wind up being our LS and extra TE.

    Pittman is not eligible for the PS.

    They really should release Flanagan, but he's probably got a gentlemans agreement with coach-pal Sherman so they will keep him for one more year.
    But they better find a spot on the roster for Chris White or someone else will probably grab him.
    Last night was one of our few looks at Darius Walker in PS games and he looked good. Had some quickness that we badly need from our backs, but I imagine his best bet at this point is the Prac-Squad.
    Dang I hated to see Clark let that little back run over his butt in the flat last night. Guess he blew all of his focus & intensity in the game in Reliant Saturday. Matter of fact, the whole team looked like the Cowboys in Reliant
    the other night and TB looked like us in terms of effort, hustle & demeanor on the field.
