NFL 53 man roster cuts...

Postby Chizzang » Tue Aug 28, 2018 9:15 am

So here we are...
September 1st roster cuts

and now the Super Bowl Champion Eagles will experience the culling effect
Pretty much every player they cut and designate to the practice squad will get signed by another team

This is the problem with winning a Super Bowl - you can no longer sneak your quality cuts through your system
The roster molestation from the NFL bottom feeders is coming - welcome to the NOW Champs

Huh? Who are the Eagles going to cut that's going to be a big deal? Heck, we're keeping the Australian rugby guy who's only played football for like 2 months. There's plenty of room on this team. Darnell Pumphery gets cut this year, but that's because he's not very good. Same for former Redskins Matt Jones. I don't believe there is a big name at all being cut by the Eagles this year. Not sure what you're concerned about.

It's not at all about "Big Names"
It's about quietly working guys through the system

It's not a fishing expedition it's a historical NFL fact
Super Bowl winners get their rosters culled by the bottom feeder teams

It decimated Denver's special teams after they beat Carolina
and ended up costing the special teams coach his job that next year

It's just a reality of NFL football
It might not happen to the Eagles
maybe they really don't have any talent beyond the 53 man roster

:geek:

However there's usually 22 guys -extra guys- that each team would like to keep in the system
practice squads depth chart etc.

It's actually a pretty interesting phenomenon

The Buffalo Bills have their annual raiding of the Patriots practice squad
until recently the Patriots got fed up and started targeting and signing Bills players

Bottom feeders that have trouble developing talent target quality organizations

The Eagles are absolutely a quality organization
and they will start to be targeted by the bottom

You're mistaking our making fun of a bottom-feeder Towson/Redskins fan. That's fun to do regardless of where the Eagles are. But hey, at least on the bright side, you're not a cowboys fan, so you really haven't hit rock bottom quite yet!

Like I said, point to any of the folks who end up getting cut and let me know why it's such a bad thing they won't have that guy playing for them? Outside of the Eagles's 53 there's not a whole lot there. The attrition you refer to comes more from guys on the 53 starting to make bigger salaries and you can't keep all of them. Howie did some magic this year so that's not the case.

So you're suggesting the Eagle Football Organization
has zero players that aren't going to make the 53 man roster that they are interested in keeping in the system?

That would be an amazing accomplishment even for Howie

Yep. Gonna have to pull some big rabbits out of his cap when the Wentz rookie contract goes away. They’re golden for now though.

Losing those players might not hurt you now but some of them have promise and you're trying to hide them so you have them in the future.

Yes Sir...
There are certain players that develop more slowly and are are seen as promising projects
and many of them have significant value to the team as a whole

Teams that aren't winning as much have little difficulty keeping these developmental guys
Teams that win super bowls get pilfered and scouted and picked over

It's the nature of having large rosters in a volatile sport where players go down frequently
and winning draws attention

David Bakhtiari was headed to the practice squad his rookie season
But " (ding) starting tackle Brian Bulaga got hurt in pre-season... so Bakhtiari got moved up on the depth chart

Today he is their best offensive lineman - even better than Bulaga who he was 2 depth chart spaces behind

6 years ago he was headed to the practice squad
he would have been available to be signed by ANY TEAM

No one's hiding anything, it's all there to see - everybody can see everyone else's practice squad players too. Who says the Eagles have the best practice squad players? Maybe they suck at their own practice squad but are good at raiding other teams's squads? At the end of the day, each year it's about getting the 53 man roster correct.

Yup, the beauty of the rookie-scale QB contract. Gotta take advantage of it before it goes away.

:lol:

Nobody said that rosters were invisible...
Nobody said the Eagles practice squad was better than anybody else's

Just the facts:
Winning Teams practice squads get poached more that losing teams

If they're not any better than anyone else's then who cares that their practice squad gets poached? You made it seem like they have these studs they're hiding on the practice squad and now people will go after them. There should be a meme here with Iverson - "we're talking about practice squads?" :rofl:

Wow...
Instead of a "Yup I hope we can keep our sleepers, we're on the NFL radar now..." Type of reaction

We get this neurotic defensive round-about series of responses
Take a deep breath and relax dude you seem a little bit "insane" right now

This might not be Chizz’s weakest troll attempt ever, but it’s close. :lol:

If there’s any insanity on GF’s part, it’s only because of effort wasted on a point that doesn’t even exist here.

The Eagles are likely going to retain a giant rugby player on the OL with less than a year’s experience in football. Are we really worried about the guys who were less compelling than the Australian project?

Jeezus I get it...
Eagles fans are NOT used to winning anything
So every observation and NFL insight is somehow a TROLL attempt

Please
Continue as you were

I don’t think winning or losing really factors in, considering the Eagles have been in the playoffs 11 times this millennium. We’re just generally a more passionate and educated fan base than say a Seattle, Tampa, etc (ie. small markets and such). We don’t really get phased by a change in the wind.
