    I'm surprised about Banks at least cutting him this early.

    Several things could be read into this. Ragone moving to #2. Making room for VY, and/or maybe they will sign Tim Couch maybe?

    As far as Hollings goes, you could read it as making room for Bush, or just that he was yet another Casserly draft bust in the second/third rounds, that he has to finally come clean on.

    Not surprised at all on Coleman. After the lackluster effort last yr, good bye and good riddance.

    Forget VY he will never get here. Tony Banks was never going to stay he's not very good and Kubiak saw that befor he ever got here. We will be able to find a good number 2 in FA.
    As far as Bush goes we will not know until draft day.

    Hollings and Coleman was expected, Banks has kind of thrown me off guard.

    I expected Colemen and Banks, Hollings threw me off guard. Now that he is healthy, he will get a shot somehwere else and be just fine.

    I'd go with: Tim Couch, Marucs Vick, Tommy Maddux...in that order.

    I figure Maddux & Brian Griesie know the system already and hear both will likely get cut. Couch is a no go. Marcus Vick? You gotta be kidding me...no way McNair touches this dysfunction.

    From what I've seen and heard from Steeler's fans, Maddux was not a good fit with a young QB. These are diehard, go to every practice and game type people. Obviously they were never in any meetings, but I value their word. Maddux didn't help Big Ben in any way. Maybe he's changed, but not the type of guy I would like around Carr. My 2 cents, take it for what its worth.

    Your probably right about Couch, but since they just worked him out, and a week later cut Banks, I kind of added 2+2, which if I am an Aggie, gives me 5. :yahoo:

    as far as the cuts go i wasn't surprised by coleman...banks and hollings i am but oh well neither were ever going to start or make that much of an impact on this team...ragone might be the #2 guy...or this might be the year that the texans staff draft yet another QB...or maybe they're going after one of the veterans vinny mentioned...either way...coleman was gonna cost us a lot of money just to sit on the bench...no reason to keep him...won't be surprised if he winds up in dallas with glenn

    I won't be surprised if he is out of the league. If it's one thing Parcells demands, it 100% effort. Coleman laid a complete egg last year, and looked like he couldn't care less 90% of the time. I don't think Parcells will care for that attitude. Someone will probably give him another chance though, but I just will be shocked if it is Dallas.

    That was my Vince Young blast o' the day.

    Ragone is a RFA too isn't he?...so we only have one QB contracted right now?

    Yep, Ragone is RFA. Things should get interesting here, especially with the labor talks shutting down today.

    So if I am figuring right which I am probably not, it'll save us about $1 million off the cap this season by cutting these 3...
