Who do you want to cut? Among those at the bottom of the roster are the following:

S, N. Gerry, CB/S J. Watkins, RB W. Smallwood, RB, MLB D. Ellerby, ST B. Braman, DE S Means, DT I Qualls, WR S Gibson.

I bet the decision to not sign a QB was more about next year than this year.

Ellerby and Braman are obviously veteran fill-ins for a playoff team.

All of the others are young guys with some upside for a team that will have cap struggles next year.

There is also the issue of CB S. Jones. Do you want to cut someone from that list to make him available? I think they have to make that decision at the end of next week correct? I imagine he'd have to beat out Watkins or Gerry, both of whom play S.

I imagine the #3 QB is T Burton. He was a running QB in high school and played a little QB at Florida. He actually scored 6TDs in one game at Florida.

Practice squad WR G. Ward was a college QB.

Both RG III and Kaepernick have playoff experience but neither seems to be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

I'm okay with Burton taking some read-option snaps to try to run out the clock. If more than that is needed, I would not expect anyone on the street to be adequate.

Gerry or Gibson to the PS in a heart beat. Nobody will pick them up.

Maybe they are preparing Ward. If so, then I feel a little better about it. Still would rather have someone with NFL experience.

I like Gibson's upside. you can't teach speed. the kid came out early. I think he will be part of the replacement for T. Smith next year to save $

Gerry just seems to be "a guy" the type you can replace every year, especially considering the number of mid-round picks they have next year. I too would expect him to make it thru waivers, except an NFC playoff team might suddenly find a need for him ; )
