    Great to see they held onto Willie, Tuggle and Cierre. I guess they hated the fact that Deji ran that kick back on us. Put him through the whole camp and cut at the end for an undrafted FA.

    I guess now it's on to the receivers...

    Cornerback Roc Carmichael has been waived by the Texans, according to a league source. He lost his job when A.J. Bouye made the roster. Best news all day!

    I am happy Wood is still here, he just looks the part.

    Bouye is a project with upside, Carmichael doesnt have any.

    Willie sure flashed, happy he is on the radar.

    And I tell you what, Muir made me look him up a few times this pre season, he seemed on another level vs the other teams backups. Wonder if he is why Jones is gone?

    If these guys turn out, our depth just got DEEP.

    Muir had me at the first practice. That guy was playing in the offensive backfield when the ball was snapped. He may wear down over the season, but he sure looks fresh right now, and he'll be a rotational dl. Jones just really didn't impress me that much. He needs to put on some size.

    I'm figuring 2 more O-linemen, 2 more LBs, and a DB will still be cut.
    Well, unless Kubiak keeps 2 QBs after all.

    At LB I can't see Tuggle and Jefferson making it. Mercilus, Reed, Williams, and Montgomery are there for sure. That leaves Braman, Jefferson, and Tuggle. Unless they just keep 3 regular ILBs and plan on shifting Reed there if needed I would think 2 of those 3 would go.

    I focused on Muir a few snaps last night and didn't like what I saw. It was honestly down right terrible. He may have been a little winded, but he got blown off the ball a few times. Bad technique and terrible effort.

    Yeah, I saw that. He'll kill it in rotation though. Gotta keep that big guy fresh. He's a big boy at 29 years of age. That preseason grind is getting to him. Let's see how he does in the reg season

    I was really impressed with Wood - he won me over, and I was hoping he would get the 3rd RB position.

    Don't forget they can still IR players .... Brendan Williams (I think he went to IR) , Sam Montgomery & Trevardo Williams are prime candidates as they didn't show much in preseason due to injury. Hiding any of those non-contributors opens up a spot elsewhere.


    They could also deal one of Yates or Keenum for draft considerations .... among others. Not that its imminent , just possible.

    I get a very Larry Johnson type of vibe when I watch Cierre Wood run. Dude is so patient with excellent vision. Just peels behind blockers and finds his hole, very few negative plays.

    His patience is exceptional .... but the way he gets north / south is just as exceptional.

    & he doesn't scare the pants off of me swinging the ball all over the place in traffic!.

    Mr. Corrosion while I disagree with you on certain avenues, I think you're very much on point with your analysis here.

    Cierre Wood was never the type of back at Notre Dame that I thought would be able to play in this league based on what I saw from him there. He was JAG to me (Just another guy). He's shown me that he has some potential and flashes a little more speed than I thought he had. This is one of those cases where I'm glad I was wrong.

    I might take a jab at you (& others occasionally) but it aint meant on a personal level .... If we cant have a conversation and disagree about sh!t , we may as well be talking to ourselves - and that gets us nowhere!

    If 4 undrafted rookies make this team, well that's quite a surprise given that this is a roster of a returning playoff team which is obviously quite talented to say the least.

    Cierre Wood will replace Tate when he is gone, which could be next season. Not only that, Wood might eventually be our starter, God forbid Foster gets worn down. I know Wood can't pass block a beach ball, but neither could Foster when we first got 'im.

    I have to agree with other posters that I will not miss Carmichael one bit.

    I can see keeping Montgomery but if Williams isn't a beast on special teams , I wouldn't worry if he got cut .
