If indeed pascal makes this team and hogan is out he is going to get picked up by a team.

A lot of our cuts are going to get picked up by another team.

Tell got beat on the sideline throw but was still in position to make a solid tackle. He's gotta have 4-5 with several of them in open field plus a couple pass breakups including one in the end zone. Cemented his spot if you ask me.

 

E.J. Speed has got to have 10 tackles. He's diagnosed plays quickly, shed blocks and made solid tackles at the line and in space. Far outplayed Adams and Franklin this preseason fo sho! Cemented his spot. 

 

Pascal and Rogers are making the roster purely based off of special teams skills - not because they've outplayed the others.

Pascal is not playing tonight either. I bet that means we carry six WR.

We will carry 5 WRs like we always do.  We will have one or two 'available' on the practice squad.

Why would he be sitting and not playing then. I guess he could be trade bait.

Adams is good. Speed already had a spot. Franklin, may get cut. 

 

Tell had a spot the minute they traded Hariston.

 

Rodger I agree with you I like Hogan, I think Pascal, is better. Would love Hogan to stick somehow, practice squad?

:D

Yeah, that was not a good half by Kelly

...below his standards...only 13/16 for 138 yds and one running TD. 

He went into the game 41/57 for 445 yds in 1/3, 1/3 and 1/2 games.

We are getting spoiled, people.

Does this kid not know that he can call a fair catch???

He's probably trying too hard.  Trying to make something happen.

 

Well, he IS making something happen, but it's all bad at this point.

Penny Hart = JoJo Natson. Talented but jittery.

 

Ironically JoJo is now pretty solid 2 years later for the Rams.

we carried 6 several weeks late last year. 

 

"like we always do" regardless means little as we only have a one year sample size with Reich's O.

Jojo made multiple big plays in preseason and had some great punt returns with us which earned him the job on the Rams. 

 

Penny Hart has done nothing but muff two punts.

Man Tell is all over the place.  Captain Marvell.  

Yeah.  That kid has a LOT of energy.  Bounced up after that last tackle like it was a 2 minute drill.

Jojo had one really bad game for us and he was gone.  I had high hopes for him to stick.

I think the coaches know what they have in those 3 guys. Might have already decided to keep, cut, or try and trade any of the 3

Is it just me, or does Walker remind you of a gazelle?  He always seems so flighty.

Are you talking about him or the ball he throws, lol.

wow low attendance

Nadine, I also notice that too.  A busy night of local  entertainment  in Cincinnati sports.  Colts are playing the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium, the Reds are playing at the Miami Marlins right now at South Florida, and the University Of Cincinnati Bearcats football team are playing the UCLA Bruins on their campus.  And all three events started at the same time right after 7:00 PM Eastern Time!

 

Not to mention a few high school football games probably being played right now that we are not aware of in the Cincy area.

I'm no QB evaluator, but it looks like he actually has good footwork.

 

Phillips making another case for him to stick.

OK I tried to defend Walker last week with the horrible offensive line play, but no more. He is trash. I thought he was really turning a corner last year, but I'm scared to have him as the backup.

He might have good footwork, but he can't hit the broad side of a barn.

We'll find out after cuts.  I'm not so sure he's safe.  I actually think he's gone.

Nope. They have seen enough. Ballard will sign a vet or a qb cut on Saturday.

But you have to keep him for the two weeks of Kelly's suspension or we'd have no backup QB?

I don't think they will bring in someone for 2 weeks that doesn't even know the playbook....I think he's safe. Just my opinion of course.

Nah.  We'll find someone on the wire after cuts or we'll sign one of the vets we brought in.

Unless we sign someone in the next 3 days, he'll be here after Saturday. 

Honestly I'm fine with rolling the dice for 2 weeks until CK is back.

    • We all know that Ballard has never gone after an elite WR in FA.  This year the only WR that would be considered elite is Cooper.  Today, here in Western NY, listening to a Bills radio show the reporters were talking Cooper up as a target for Josh Allen next year IF he hits FA.  The Bills have never been timid about spending in FA.  So if he hits FA he is going to get some big offers.  If he does hit FA he is the type of WR I could see Ballard finally going after and spending some of his cap.  He knows it's a big need and getting an elite young playmaker like Cooper might finally get Ballard to go all in and fill a big hole right away. 
    • 1. The Celtics are not trading us Jaylen Brown for Myles Turner.   2. You just need to give up on the "breakout" season for Myles. He's not going to average 15 PPG in this system unless he is taking 9 3's a game like KAT is.    The other 4 players in the starting lineup are all averaging 17 PPG or more this season. There is only one ball. Myles Turner is not getting the touches and shots necessary to average 15.    Goga is a complete liability on defense right now. We should not be relying on him in any regard until he learns how to defend without fouling.       If Myles Turner played in this game, he would be contesting all these shots and making it a lot more difficult on Harden. Sabonis just cannot provide that defense and Goga can shot block, but he gives up too many fouls.    Myles never has high rebounding numbers because he constantly has to protect against other players on the team getting beat and meeting guys at the rim. The rest of the team is there to rebound the ball.     I'm not even thinking about trading Myles until/unless Goga improves to a place where he can be impactful while playing 20-25 minutes.    
    • Following up on this:   So by claiming someone who is waived, his exclusive rights carry with it?    I'm just trying to figure out how he came to the 49ers first, then was waived by them.  It seems like they were simply renting him until Gould came back, which I would think would reflect a player being signed off of the street.  Does he have tenure, so to speak, and was with another club before SF?   Still not sure how his "tenured" rights move to the Colts, but I like it.
    • My point is that this has been going on all year. It's not like the TN game was some red flag out of nowhere.   However, today's news makes it seem like AV is actually hurt. So this move might be more prompted by his status than I originally thought. Still, interesting coincidence that McLaughlin is available now... 
    • Doubt that just one pick would be enough, but if we're talking about trading picks to move up to get a college QB, getting a not-too-old vet would allow us time to draft a developmental guy.
