QB - 3 - Bradford, Sanchez, Tebow
RB - 4 - Murray, Mathews, Sproles, Barner
WR - 6 - Matthews, Algholar, Cooper, Austin, Huff, Ajirotutu
TE - 3- Celek, Ertz, Burton
OL - 9- Peters, Barbre, Kelce, Garnder, Johnson, Kelly, Tobin, Bunche, Molk
Off total = 25

DE - 5 - Cox, Thorton, Curry, Bair, Hart
DT - 2 - Logan, Allen
ILB - 4- Ryans, Kendricks, Alonzo, Hicks,
OLB -5 - Barwin, Graham, Braman, Jones, Smith
CB - 4- Maxwell, Carroll, Biggars, Rowe
S - 5 - Jenkins, Thurmond, Maragos, Couplin, Watkins
Def Total = 25
ST - 3 - Jones, Parkey, Dorenbos

Last 5 to make it:
1. Couplin
2. Smith
3. Watkins
4. Bunche
5. Kelly

Last 5 cuts:
1. Bailey
2. Goode
3. Prosinski
4. Boyko
5. Rice

Few things of note. I have four guys who are making it b/c of ST's other than the usual - Maragos, Braman, Barner. I'm not sure we need that many. Barner can contribute at RB, he has the skill, not sure if any others do for non ST's

A few guys I have making it even though I've seen nothing from them (excl our LB's)

Austin
Hart
Huff
Cooper
M. Smith (he played once, 1 tackle in 50+ plays vs 2's and 3's, didn't get good reviews)


Reynolds not enough
Vanderwelde - just a guy.

Wouldn't surprise me if we picked up two OL and one OLB after cuts.

So far, the Eagles are down to 59.

6 more to go for final 53.

They cut Bunche, who I had sticking.

I need to find someone to replace him.

Here are the guys still around who I had getting cut:

Goode
Rice
Martino
Andrews
D. Watkins
Reynolds
Maehl

So if I have to pick one to stick, I'd say D. Watkins OLB, the other 6 above get cut.

I don't think Andrews deserves it and he won't get picked off waivers so he'll be there.

I understand Bailey getting cut, but Maehl sticks longer than him? Seriously?

Apparently they're trying to trade J Watkins too.

You forget Maehl is and Oregon Duck

With Rowe playing the way he has, I don't think you can cut Watkins, the S/CB.

The Watkins I had taking Bunche spot as LB Watkins

I wouldn't object, but I don't know where we would put him. We're already carrying three backs and a fullback, and just cut the two guys who actually did a good job of getting us through preseason. Garrett is high on Randle, and I can't see Jones letting former Razorback McFadden go without giving him every chance he can. That leaves Dunbar, who has shown himself to be a pretty good third down back with what few chances he got due to Murray being on the field all the time.

and yet there are reports that they are trying to trade for Montee Ball...which is good news from the Mostert front....

What a mess in that backfield....

Oh gawd, I have no idea what the Montee Ball thing is all about. I'm not even sure whether to hope its false or true.

You had to go and say that didn't you!

To make it worse.........................

And Bailey!

The only thing that would make that less likely is that it is a waiver claim, which goes worst to first on the pecking order. I don't know if the other 20 some teams pass on both of these guys to make them available.

I think cuts are due in by 4 today and waivers ends tomorrow around noon, I think.

Rice made it over J. Watkins
Andrews over Bunch
Can't figure out who made it over Tebow, I'm missing someone.

We only have 52 on the roster at the moment, which answers your question.

24 offense - 2 QB, 4 RB, 3 TE, 6 WR, 9 OL
25 defence - 7 DL, 9 LB, 9 DS
3 STs - K, LS, P

Yes, that explains it! Nobody made it over Tebow yet!

I didn't put the two together.

My bad.

For all your spelling screw ups over there, it seems like you have a thing for the fine properties of math like addition!
