    I'm surprised it's Nolan of all people who keeps getting cut.

    Why does it always have to be Nolan!?!

    and hurray for Sharpton! I'm sure he'll be trying to knock off rust in this game and the rest of the season, but hopefully he'll be back to what he was pre-injury sooner rather than later.

    Demps makes Nolan redundant. Keo is the superior ST player.

    I'm kinda against this, since the game is tomorrow, and obviously they prepared for the game plan with Nolan.

    But, at the same time, Sharpton needs to get that rust off. It would basically be a good opportunity for Sharpton without having too much of a challenge.

    This guy has had a long 2 seasons of sitting on the bench, glad he's getting a chance to play again. Was a little worried he'd be dropped before he got healthy.

    Maybe they like what they saw out of Ruud?

    the gap in talent between demps and nolan is significant. seeing him cut again doesnt surprise me.. im just glad kubiak realized this and brought back the player that truly deserved to be on this team last season.. lets see if nolan gets picked up by detroit than released after thanksgiving..

    And the fact that prior to activating Sharpton, they had 5 safeties (including 3 designated as "SS"), and only 3 ILB's. Oh, and one of those ILB's (Dobbins) is questionable for tomorrow's game.

    Plus, don't forget they already cut Nolan once, and it appeared at the time that the only reason (or at least the main reason) they brought him back was the injury to Demps (which is now healed enough for him to play).

    Given the performance of our ST's play thus far this year, is that saying much?

    That may not turn out to be as empty a statement as people think.

    One is less likely to get injured standing on the sideline. :)

    So you're at the practices? Since Sharpton has been working out with the team I'm pretty sure he's been in the mix somehow.

    Nolan wasn't even active last week. Not sure what the love fest for him is about. Since it's the defensive side of the ball I'll assume this is Wade's call and I'll take his word on it.
