  • Who will be off the roster by week 1?

    Yep, another biased Big Bad John poll. I will leave the "other" selection available for those who need to further express their individuality.

    For the record, I have heard ramblings about Lepsis and I hope they never come to fruition..

    I'm going with Dayne...garbage, absolute garbage...IMO, of course...
    82
    Mike Anderson
    20.73%
    17
    Ron Dayne
    34.15%
    28
    Matt Lepsis
    2.44%
    2
    Trevor Pryce
    0.00%
    0
    John Lynch
    2.44%
    2
    other...
    40.24%
    33
    I've walked these streets, a loaded six-string on my back, I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back, I've been everywhere still I'm standin' tall, I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all!!:salute!:

    I chose other as a way of saying none of the above. Dayne might not make the cut in preseason or camp, but to sign him just to cut him without giving him a chance wouldnt make much sense in my opinion.

    I'm not sure who will face a cut June 1st, but I doubt it would be anyone recently signed.

      This one is not biased. Some could argue that you are not giving enough options, but it will be reflected in many "other" responses. Otherwise, looks O.K.

      Edit: Well, it could be confusing for somebody thinking that more than one of the players listed will be off the roster.

        Do you hear that, Mr. (Mike) Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability.

        I dunno, I just have a feeling he is eating up a little too much cash to keep him around.

          We did the same thing last year with all those tight ends we signed.

            What you are essentially asking is who won't make the team, Practice Squad or otherwise, and I think all of the players on the list will make the team unless trades transpire. Mike Anderson has value to this team, but I could definitely see him being traded sometime before the start of the season. Ron Dayne has the opportunity to make a real impact on the roster depending on how he performs. He has to come into camp in shape and with a chip on his shoulder, but if he proves to be a solid backup to T-Bell he could make Anderson and maybe even Q Griffin ultimately expendable.

              I marked "other" because I have a pressing need to express my individuality. I am very individual. I am so individual that I gave up my multiple personality disorder some time ago. I locked myself in a room for a year until I could discover, yes, I am an individual!

              Oh yes, the players. Mike Anderson will be with us for the year. He is the only tried and true power back we have. Clarett isn't going anywhere; he is the most talented RB we have, including Bell.

              Any one of Matt Lepsis, Trevor Pryce, or John Lynch might go if the staff all the sudden turns up two cans short of a sixpack. Are you kidding? The OL has barely enough depth, so Lepsis stays. If Pryce is healthy, he is a beast. If Lynch is moved over to SS and plays inside the box, he is still one of the best there (not at FS, where you have to have some speed, IMO). The most at risk, IMO, is Ron Dayne, simply because of MA and especially Clarett. We have an awesome collection of power at that position. Even Bell isn't tiny.

              I can't see any of them going the first week. A day or two into the second week, maybe . . .

                I would hope we wouldn't cut Lepsis, we wouldn't exactly have the best situation going on at tackle.

                  I honestly think Dayne will be cut because MA has been with us for along time so I think he'll stay on the team and Dayne will be cut even if Dayne is a bit better because we still got Clarret.

                    you still think there is such a thing as loyalty in the NFL? If Rod Smith turns out to be another Jerry Rice or Troy Brown you really think Shannahan would keep him around just because he's been a Bronco for so long? Fat chance, I think Smith has the dignity to retire when he has nothing else to contribute to the team, but if he doesn't then i'm sure he'll retire somewhere else.

                    I chose other because I think our defensive line is gonna be thinned down by the start of the season. But of the named players on the list I would have to say Mike Anderson. Not sure what his contract #'s are, but if he's making more than what his role is going to be on the team, than it wouldn't suprise me if he's playing somewhere else in the near future.

                          I'm not sure what you mean by "loyalty." There is one reason, and one reason only, for a players presence on a team: to make that team better. The organization understands that, the coaching staff understands that, the players understand that, and at least some fans understand that. We keep grandpa around in our family (theoretically) because we love him. This isn't a family. This is an organization that is trying to be better than the other organizations in the league. That's why it exists. That's easy enough to understand, isn't it?

                          This wasn't meant to distract from what you were trying to say because I thought your comment about MA and the DL could very well be on the money.

                            Out of the people in the poll I believe Ron Dayne will be cut.
                            However, is he someone that could convert to FB? If so then maybe it will be Anderson. Just a thought.

                              I’m still amazed at how he didn’t spend a day in jail after getting caught driving 120mph in the city completely drunk with 60gr’ Cocaine and 3 unregistered pistols in the vehicle, while beating his wife and threatening to kill his GF.
                              whoa that dude has a wife to beat AND a GF to threaten, thats good ...
                              its gonna be ron dayne who has the biggest work to do if he wants to make the roster
