Just to update the Few minor Changes:


What I said last time:

As per fan request Stephen McGee is no longer on the team. With McGee unable to be put on the PS, and Dallas only going with two QB's, There isn't room for McGee anymore. Not to mention Dallas saves 600,000+ by cutting him.

Carpenter is moved to the PS, and hopefully we will never see him in a game....

No changes from Last time.

Running Back:

What I said Last time:

Small change here with Tanner in instead of Dunbar. the Reason? Dunbar is PS eligible, and Tanner isn't. Plus Tanner has a nice role on Special teams. I still Like LD's potential, but Tanner is more a "proven Commodity" and I don't like cutting those, especially cheap ones....Also if The Injury bug hits the RB's again(Knock on Wood) Look for Beasley to get some time there.....

Again no changes...

Wide Receiver:

What I said last time:

Biggest Change Here: NO Kevin Ogletreeout the 4th, 5th, and 6th WR spots. Ogletree should be dominating these guys, day in, day out. He's not, so he Meets the "Turk". I think that Beasley has passed him at this point for the 3rd WR spot, and while Harris/Radway/Holmes haven't been that Consistent, we are talking about the 4th, 5th, and 6th WR spots. Ogletree should be dominating these guys, day in, day out. He's not, so he Meets the "Turk". Again.

I think that with Radway being cut, and Holmes being inconsistent, that Opens the door for Ogletree, as he is really the only Other WR that is truly a "inside/out" WR. Beasley has certainly assured himself of a Roster spot, and Harris has really improved this year. Danny Coale makes it right now...but won't be a Game day active for a while.

Tight End:

What I said last time:

No change here, as I had Hanna getting the third TE spot last time. Witten Remains the Starter with Phillips being the #2.

Witten's injury has allowed Both Phillips and Hanna to solidify their spots on the team. No Change here.

Offensive Line:

What I said last time:

Some slight changes here. Obviously Tryon and Free have the tackle positions on "lockdown", The main changes are due to injury. I believe that the Starting lineup on the interior will be Livings- Costa- Bernadeau with Arkin and Leary as the primary backups @G/C, at least untill Kowalski comes off the "PUP". Gunn is simply holding his(Kowalski) spot until then. Also it looks like my leaving Nagy off last time, might have been a little psychic-ness, with Nagy possibly going to IR(hopefully)

Well I don't think anyone expected Nagy to get picked up off Waivers...but Other than that I don't see any changes. Arkin has been OK @ C, and I don't think Leary Will clear Waivers....Gunn Again is holding Kowalski's spot on the 53...Though I could see that going to McQuistan, due to his ability to play both Tackle and Guard....

The Defense didn't see that many changes though:

Defensive Line:

What I said last time:

I think that Spears has seen his last TC with Dallas along with Coleman, and as many good things has I have been hearing about Ben Bass, the fact that he is PS eligible and the only other DL that is PS eligible is Crawford, means that He gets moved there. However this is a battle that bears watching, if Bass can show an ability to man the Nose, he could make Josh Brent/Robert Callaway expendable.

Some big Changes here. Last time I had Dallas keeping Callaway and Geathers and Putting Bass on the PS. This Battle probably won't be resolved till after the 4th Preseason game, but Crawford won't make it through Waivers, and neither Geathers nor CalIaway have the upside of Crawford. And I still don't see either Spears nor Coleman making the 53. And as for the "veteran Leadership" you still have Ratliff, Hatcher and to a lesser extent Lissemore for that...

And for those worried about the "depth" remember Ryan uses alot of 2 and 1 man lines....and Both Ware and Spencer play as DE's in the 4 man the "rotation" of Linemen is less of a concern....Also I wouldn't be surprised to See Brent meet the "Turk" either, as Lissemore can play the NT position....


What I said last time:

Well the McGee Spot proves valuable, as Dallas is able to hold on to Adrian Hamilton, rather than risk him being exposed on Waivers. This gives Dallas as many as 4 possible "Spencer Replacements" on the Roster, in Kyle Wilbur, Adrian Hamilton, Victor Butler, and Alex Albright.

At ILB the roster remains the same though, Lee with Connor, Carter and Albright.

No Changes here, though Lemon might have gotten a spot due to his ST play... I just can't find a spot for I don't think either Wilbur nor Hamilton would make it through Waivers( Though with his injuries Wilbur has the best chance.


What I said last time:

Well it looks like Jenkins should be the #2 come the start of the season, which moves Scandrick to #3, moving Claiborne to #4. So if this holds:

#1-Carr> Newman

#2- Jenkins= Jenkins

#3- Scandrick= Scandrick

#4- Claiborne> Alan Ball

#5- Butler=Walker

#6-Williams> Who did we have here last year?

So right now Dallas has improved two of the Top 4 spots, and could easily be 3 if Claiborne can beat out Scandrick for the #3 spot. Nice offseason for Dallas just getting those two(Carr, Claiborne)

It looks More and more likely that Jenkins starts on the PUP to start the season, with Claiborne moving into the #2 spot...That means that AOA should make the Team, if just as a "placeholder" for Jenkins. Update: It appears as though Jenkins won't be going to the PUP, so that means AOA gets the "Turk" meeting. As for my thoughts on Claiborne been the wrong choice:

"Once I thought I was wrong...but I was mistaken" Claiborne has really won me over....(but I would still liked to have Decastro & Brooks instead).....but other than that...I would rather have Claiborne...


What I said last time:

No changes in the Names, but I think that Church has solidified himself as the starter next to Sensabaugh. with Matt Johnson being the Primary backup, and McCray being the "specialist". And Yes I called the Pool Cut long before it happened. Was I expecting it to happen as soon as it did? No, but I did call it. Oh and for those that are wanting Matt Johnson as the Starter? Wait till next year. Cutting Sensabaugh next year will save ~1.5 million...Just FYI....

Silva apparently has impressed enough on ST to earn a spot, so he gets included....and I still think Matt Johnson is the 2013 starter @ FS....though He likely will be a Game day inactive for most of the Season.


What I said last time:

Dan Bailey and L.P are automatic.....Chris Jones...well...he is young, so maybe he can improve...before he blows a game for us....

No Changes here.

As for the PS:

What I said last time:

Lemon and McSurdy both should make it there, and will probably be working on FB duties.

Bass, Dunbar and Adcock get caught in the numbers crunch at DL, RB, and OL, but all three should benefit from a year on the PS.

Saalim Hakim, hopefully makes it through Waivers, but if he doesn't Dallas does have a couple of other options, though none with the pure speed of Hakim.

Carpenter will be signed to run the scout team. That is all. I would rather Dallas bring in Tim Tebow than see Carpenter actually play in a game as QB.

Other than McSurdy going to IR (being replaced by Adams) I am sticking with these guys for the Practice Squad.


With the Fourth preseason game done, I felt the need to make a few changes. Here is a run Down of the changes:


Marcus Spears

Orie Lemon

Pat McQuistan


Teddy Williams

Harland Gunn

Dan Connor

And for those that mentioned it, the Numbers should match up now.

So What do you Think BTB?.....Let me Know in the Comments.....Again I want to thank all the FP writers, and all the other posters here. With out ya'll I wouldn't have any clue what was going on, so me being able to put out anything remotely close to accurate in a testament to ya'll and the coverage you provide. Thank you!!!!
