Got a quick Correction to make, Cody Glenn was not added to the PS. He was added to the Roster. Not sure who was cut to make the room......I'm waiting on the local coverage to find out. That might be sometime next week knowing how slow the local news and papers are to freaking find stuff out.

the lovely waiver claims and the PS

as it has been the last few years we're making moves after cuts on the waiver wire. not surprising though. I was kind of surprised when I saw that Matt was cut. He is a good special teamer and can play on the spot in games.....I guess they felt this Francisco kid is better. Could be so if he has been the captain of the Cardinals Special teams the last 3 years. Bring the guy in...what the hell. Also a linebacker, Cody Glenn has been claimed. No idea who he is, but he's on the team now so he'll be a guy to watch.

Giguire, Thomas, Gill, Hart, MATHEWS (I know I know WTF on this one), Taj, Colin Cloherty, and Glenn round out the practice squad. I'm really happy to see that Mike hart is on here, maybe around mid season when he's completely healthy and ready to go he can get signed onto the squad and contribute. I was definitely shocked to see niether Grady or Terrence Taylor to be added on here. They both had such promise. Gill sucked in my opinion. The guy played damn near two full games and never sniffed a tackle or applied pressure. Grady Seemed to constantly be penetrating and Taylor was the 4th round pick I was really excited about. Oh well.........I don't call the shots.

it almost counts......

preseason over, cuts done, football that counts is almost here.

I like what I saw in the cuts. although I do believe Tauilili is better than keiaho, but oh well. I was a little surprised to see Grady AND terrance taylor both getting the axe, but again who cares. They'll probably both get thrown on the practice squad and called up in mid season when somebody goes down. I wasn't that surprised when Mike Hart and Marcus Howard both were cut. Mike couldn't stay healthy, devestating injury first year plus constant sitting for minor injuries will get you axed. Howard was a beast in college, but was way way too small. He's like Kieaho (another tony dungy speed first BS player). yes he had the speed to be a good edge rusher, but he was weak. When a tackle flicked him with an inded finger he went flailing into the turf and was ultimately out of the play. Steve justice, josh thomas....good riddance.

One guy I liked seeing make it was Ramon Humber. He is a bomber. I think he'll be comparable to Darrell Ried. Good special teamer that will rarely see the field on D.

It's good to see that Caldwell isn't against axing players with "promise". I think Tony hung on to players for WAY to long.....the same with coaches. It didn't take a football person to realize that Marcus Howard sucked. Doesn't take a brilliant mind to see that Josh Thomas was horrible, or Steve Justice couldn't block a cardboard box, or that Freddy Kieaho was a HORRIBLE middle linebacker. It is good to know that Jim can separate from these guys and realize that a good person can be a sucky professional football player.

Bob was activated from Pup, doubt he plays in the opener but one can hope for it. only a week away from actual football. Stay tuned......................
