    What do you think? It was really tough for me to make this, but this is my roster prediction. Its still a bit early. There are a few people I regret leaving off, including: Leonard Pope, Brittan Golden, Matt Blanchard, Armando Allen, Zach Minter, Kyle Moore, Patrick Trahan, and Brandon Hardin.

    There's another 10 days before we trim from 90 to 75 and another game before then so a lot can change between now and then. I've got a list of guys who I'm 100% sure won't make the roster but it's too soon to make interim predictions.

    Well I am just curious of peoples thoughts, and besides, the coaches know about 90% (or more) of the final roster before the 4th preseason game anyways. I'm guessing you don't like looking at draft boards before the draft either?

    Fine should I state the questions I posed anyways?
    Do we carry 3 QBs? Do we keep Webb? With all the young linebackers, how many do we keep for special teams? WRs? Do we give up on Hardin?

    There's a few good articles out there about the 4 phase special teamers, And that is how you'll know who will make the back end of the rosters. All the really good rookie's at are on the bubble(Wilson/Ford etc) won't make the team unless they can make a real impact in multiple areas of ST's. Guys that have been starters for ST's so far have been guys like Weems, Costanzo, Allen, so those(barring inj's) are pretty sure locks to make the team. I'll see if I can't dig of the articles up.

    I like your o-line. I thought the right side did a good job on Thursday and there is upside with more play time. I was dissapointed with Webb. I was expecting to see fire in his play, but everytime the play moved away from him he would stand still and watch the game like a spectator. I am not trying to start a Webb-arguement, but he needs to pick it up.

    I will feel better about the d-line when Peppers is back and at full strength.

    I thought we would be further along on QB's by now. All of them have tunnel vision and hold onto the ball way too long. They should be passing the ball within 3-4 seconds on most plays, but it doesn't happen. The o-line has been progressing and we soon we will not be able to hid behind their (line) failure as the lack of offense.

    At this point with the serious lack of depth, I don't see him going away. I watched part of the Tampa game to see what Carmini is doing. I didn't hold out long enough to see him. He is not on the 1's.

    I was debating between Allen and Ford. Im not sure if he has made many impact plays outside of the big returns or not. Trahan is another ST player I was thinking about but can you keep 8 LBs and where do you take way from? Unless you switch out JT. An article on the 4 phase ST players would be awesome.

    I feel like with Blanchard's injury and this being a must win year for Cutler, we won't keep 3 QBs. I do like Blanchard though.

    Webb... My thoughts are, we know he isnt going to start, but he is talented. I havent been playing close enough attention to Britton but I think with his experience playing both tackles and guard with the Jaguars will add more value to him. It seems like the coaching staff likes Scott but with his knee issue, idk. Oh, don't get me started on how disappointed I am with Carmini...

    Well that has absolutely nothing to do with the question you asked so it's irrelevant what I do or don't do prior to the draft. If you must have an answer go search my pre-draft threads and then you'll have one.:rolleyes:

    You can state the question anyway you want but my answer wouldn't change. I don't know exactly who makes the cut and who doesn't yet. There are two and half more weeks of practice and two preseason games yet to be played and injuries will play into it as well. So I haven't decided what I think about any of those specific players or situations you mentioned and that is a legit answer to your question RoSto.

    You want me to name a few names? OK, here's a few who don't stand a chance based on what I've seen so far; Derek Dennis/OG, A J Lindeman/OT, Russell Brent/DT, EWill/OC-OG, Gabe Miller/TE, Demontre Hurst/CB, Josh Lenz/WR. But none of those even come close to answering the specific questions you posed. That's why I answered as I did.

    Cheers.

    Not only was he great on the return, but Ford was also the first man in on a couple ST tackles. Wilson hasn't been very noticeable on ST, but I still keep him for upside as a WR alone. Ford is a lock in my mind. Weems, Cantstandya and Allen can all take a hike as far as I'm concerned, but if I had to keep one, it would be Cantsandya. Allen is an entirely replaceable ST'er and Weems hasn't done anything to impress me in any phase.

    @soulman, I was just giving you grief, haha. I'm just excited about Bears football and live in Maryland where I have to listen to obnoxious Ravens fans.

    I cant remember watching the preseason if it was Hurst or Wilson I noticed making some nice tackles. One of them just seemed to flow to the ball and be near the play. Both will likely be candidates for the practice squad.
