    The Grisham detractors are mostly Redman fans...

    most of the Grisham fans are fans of him or his story... and not what he brings to the team talent-wise.

    I am a big Redman fan.

    As far as Grisham goes i have not seen him much so can't say if he is better than Brown or Company.

    I know Grisham reminds me of good ole Ced Wilson when he complains to the Refs.

    Nope...I'd give Redman a big ol' thumbs up and Grisham a big ol' thumbs down.
    And I give Redman a slightly upturned thumb and Grisham a thumbs down.
    But you weren't always a Redmen fan now were you?

    Well guys...Don't be too tough on Grisham. First, he is very young. So he isn't a finished product. He may not have the measurables but there are different types of WR in this league. You will get a Hines Ward type of WR at best. Maybe a little faster than Ward ever was. But great hands, good routes, tough guy who will go over the middle, and will stick a helmet on a DE if he is asked to. You don't look for a guy like this to be a #1 or #2. He is the type of guy you like on 3rd down. Get to the sticks and catch a bullet low and away. Take the hit and move the chain. A "Blue Collar" WR. The QBs like these guys because you throw it hard to the spot and you know he will go get it for you. You always want one of them on your team because the top 2 don't like to run those routes.

    That being said, Grisham has alot of work to do to get to that WR. I wouldn't put him any higher that #6 right now. Ward, Wallace, El, Sanders, & Brown are all ahead of him. If he continues to improve and play ST, he could stick around.

    After watching him tonight, I agree, we ought to keep Sylvester on the final 53.
    I think I would cut Foote, if I was running things. But don't look for the Steelers to go that route.

    I also now expect that Logan will be cut, although I think that will be a mistake.

    As far as drafted rookies making the team, I now think nearly all of them will (Worthington to the PS).

    I think it's safe to say that Batch is going to survive the final cut.

    cutting burnett would be a big mistake.

    i will be stunned, not surprised, if Foster gets cut for Urbik. some of the gurus just won't admit the guy flat out sucks. he looks average against other teams 3rd stringers and his supporters howl for a starting position.

    cuts- logan, madison, summers
    keeps- dwyer, butler, sly

    Urbik over Foster was my surprise pick. I wanted to go out on a limb a bit; hence the unexpected.

    I haven't been an Urbik supporter all along. I've read some good reviews of his play this preseason. I'm not an o-line guru by any means, and I didn't have a chance to see tonight's game. I've never been that impressed with Foster. He doesn't seem to have a lot of power or mobility. This isn't just blindly pimping a player - earlier, I thought it was an almost certainty that he'd get cut.

    If Scott's injury is serious, we could keep both Foster and Urbik (along with Hills and Legursky to round out our backup OL).
