Yes, the chart reappears. After watching the game again it was time to update my rankings for each position. It’s based on a lot of factors, but mainly it’s a guideline for making cuts. If you keep 2 QB’s, then Matt Moore is off the 53-man roster and headed for the practice squad, and so on. Eventually, the chart will morph into a foolhardy attempt at nailing the 53-man roster and the practice squad. Next week, it will be down to 75, and then make the full transition the following week. And that can only mean one thing: Football season is almost here.
Movers and shakers in the new rankings.
Marcus Spears leaps back ahead of Jason Hatcher because of an active game against Denver and Hatcher’s inactivity due to injury. Lousaka Polite slides back into second place at fullback with a nice effort in place of Oliver Hoyte. MB3 still leads over JJ, he’s just looked better overall. Miles Austin keeps his spot as the #5 WR, but needs to be on the lookout for Isaiah Stanback. One more good game from Stanback could do the trick. Jamel Richardson falls behind Jerheme Urban, as Urban sees time on the punt and kick return units. Kevin Burnett had a strong game, pushing Bobby Carpenter at ILB, but Carpenter may have to be evaluated at OLB. We’ll see how much time he spends there. Finally, Nick Folk takes a small lead over Martin Gramatica. Folk’s 52-yard make compared to Gramatica’s 51-yard miss gives him the narrowest of margins.
