I've been reading BGN posts for years now. I had a glitch that wouldn't let me post and/or comment. Now that tech support has cleared that up, thanks again. I'm starting off with a bang and predicting the Eagles roster.
I saw a similar post today and can't agree from what I've seen/heard/read. There are certain "locks" that I think are far more up for grabs. For each possition I will also include an OMO (odd man out). So here it is with some additional commentary where I felt an explanation was needed:
QB - Mike Vick Mike Kafka (I feel the playcalling was not in his favor after Atl game last year) Nick Foles Trent Edwards - OMO (If any QB is lost for season, he gets the call before Garcia) RB - Lesean McCoy Dion Lewis (Good back-up, same skillset as McCoy) Bryce Brown (Bigger Back with great speed) Chris Polk - OMO (More likely to beat out Lewis than Brown) FB - Stanley Havili (Not Weaver, but similar) WR - Desean Jackson Jeremy Maclin Jason Avant Riley Cooper Marvin McNutt Damaris Johnson (Punt Returner) Ronald Johnson - OMO (If DJ goes down w/ lengthy injury, he gets a call) TE - Brent Celek Brett Brackett (Better size and hands than Clay) Clay Harbor - OMO (Kept if we eliminate FB position - I'd rather not) T - Demteress Bell (Left Side) Todd Herremans (Right Side) King Dunlap (Swing Tackle) Dennis Kelly - OMO G - Evan Mathis (Left Side) Danny Watkins (Right Side) Julian Vandervelde (Back-up G/C) Brandon Washington (Project) C - Jason Kelce Mike Gibson/Dallas Reynolds - OMO DE - Jason Babin Trent Cole Brandon Graham Vinny Curry Darryl Tapp (I like him staying...but he could become trade bate) Phillip Hunt - OMO (If Tapp is traded he makes roster) DT - Mike Patterson Cullen Jenkins Antonio Dixon Fletcher Cox Derek Landri Cedtric Thorton - OMO MLB - DeMeco Ryans Jamar Chaney (Back-up Mid and Sam, or Start Weak) WSLB - Brian Rolle Casey Mathews SSLB - Mychal Kendricks Moise Fokou Monte Simmons (Special Teams) Akeem Jordan - OMO FS - Nate Allen Kurt Coleman Phillip Thomas SS - OJ Atogwe Jaiquawn Jarret Colt Anderson - OMO (Starts season on PUP list) CB - Nnamdi Asomugha Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Brandon Boykin Curtis Marsh Cliff Harris (Kick Returner) Brandon Hughes - OMO K - Alex Henery P - Ryan Tydlacka Chas Henry - OMO LS - Jon Dorenbos IR - Jason Peters PUP - Colt AndersonIt should be noted that all of my OMO players are likely to fight for their spot on the roster and, if they don't make the team, they will very likely be on our practice squad, brought back due to injury, or picked up by another team. Also, Joselio Hanson does not make this team, but is quickly scooped up by another. Thanks for reading my first of many. Please comment!
