    Post practice game rants---Dallas

    I know it's commonplace in the offseason for us fans to want to think every player can be a star, but i'm just curiuos if anyone noticed Rodgers in the 1st preseason game? I haven't got to watch it yet. From what I understand he seems pretty good in coverage, i'm not saying he's going to be our starter at any point but does he still possess upside?

    I didn't notice him at all. Barrett did well. My guess is Rogers will be cut.

    What safeties do you think we keep?

    McCree, Abdullah, Barrett, Manuel? Leaving Morton and Rodgers on the bubble?

    I say Rodgers will keep a roster spot.

    The reason I say this is because 1 I'm a UW Badger homer , and 2 Rodgers can also play CB which could add more depth to the team.

    Look for Manuel to get the shaft.

    Yes, those four. We usually keep 4 safeties right?

    No upside whatsoever. He the only guy that got beat deep in the game, but it also doesn't help when we don't have any pass rush to speak of, it was a play-action to say the least.

    And Morton is not a Safety, he's a corner so Rodgers is the odd man out.

    I'm not sure on that. However, Rodgers seemed to be having a solid camp, and I think the added depth at safety/corner/special teams could only help especially with what i've heard of Manuel.

    Rogers is still PS eligible, so he may well end up there again.

    Quick Question...Jackson or Sheffler

    Not really keeping up with the tight ends, but why was Nate getting all the looks with the first team and Sheffler coming in the game in the second half?

    Anyone know?

    It's just mind games that Shanahan is playing with Scheffler.

    It's more of a motivational thing for Scheffler to see someone else's name in his depth chart spot.

    I think it is because Nate is showing signs of being able to come in and contribute....

    I also think that Scheff has been banged up since day 1 and the Broncos want him to come in 100 % healthy..

    I would say Scheff will end up being the starter of the two ,But giving Nate 1st team snaps is his reward for working hard.

    Shanahan has had a man crush on Jackson for years.

    Why, I don't have a clue.

    Graham got a lot of reps with the first team as well, so it wasn't all Jackson
