Can't find much wrong with that and I'd be surprised if our final 53 was a lot different to it. I'm actually looking forward to this season for the first time in I don't know how long!

I think we could surprise a few teams this year. Most analysts are making fun of our QB situation but as we've seen before you don't need a HOF quarterback to get into the post-season. If we run the ball well and our D plays tough and bags a few turnovers we could go 9-7 and in the NFC East where generally everyone beats everyone else that could bag a wild card

the linebacking seems really muddled to me, I have no idea how it will finish.

I think three of the four LB starting jobs are taken by Orakpo, Kerrigan and Fletcher. That 2nd ILB spot is a concern though. Looks like a straight battle between McIntosh and Perry Riley, which doesn't fill me with confidence. Hopefully one of them will step up this year.

There is a lack of depth at LB in general though

Pick apart, scrutinise, debate. Go!!

QB: John Beck, Rex Grossman, Kellen Clemens. (3) - Agreed.

RB: Tim Hightower, Ryan Torain, Roy Helu. (3) - You have Torain down as on IR. Ok he's injury prone but I think he makes it to the roster as the #2 back with Helu been the 3rd back and Royster going on the PS.

TE/FB: Chris Cooley, Fred Davis, Logan Paulsen, Darrel Young, Mike Sellers. (5) - Agreed, a lot of people have Sellers not making the roster and he has been moved from FB to TE back to FB but he's still a guy who can make a difference on offense, special teams and with his leadership so I say he makes it.

WR: Santana Moss, Jabar Gaffney, Leonard Hankerson, Donte Stallworth, Terrence Austin, Anthony Armstrong. (6) - Agreed, Stallworth might be the guy in danger if Banks is kept on the final roster.

OL: Trent Williams, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Chris Chester, Jammal Brown, Sean Locklear, Maurice Hurt, Artis Hicks, Willie Smith (9) - I think they keep 9 OL men given the way injuries can hit this unit quickly. I don't see Capers making it, he's struggled from all I've read so think the experience of Locklear keeps him around with Willie Smith been the additional guy.

DL: Stephen Bowen, Barry Cofield, Jarvis Jenkins, Adam Carriker, Anthony Bryant, Kedric Golston, Darrion Scott (7) - Only Neild I don't agree on, think he's heading to the practice squad as he startedd camp well but has shown a few struggles as the pre-season has gone on. I've gone for Darrion Scott to make it but this could well be a spot filled from the waiver wire.

LB: Lorenzo Alexander, London Fletcher, Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, Rob Jackson, Keyaron Fox, Perry Riley, Rocky McIntosh. (8) - Agreed, but Kerrigan is Ryan not Brian :) although the early praise Jackson was getting seems to have come to a bit of disappointment as he hasn't performed in the pre-season games.

CB: DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson, Kevin Barnes, Byron Westbrook, Brandyn Thompson. (5) - Buchanon will be on the suspended list for 4 games and doesn't count against the 53 so I have Westbrook making it for his ST's ability over Reggie Jones who goes to the PS.

S: Laron Landry, Oshimogho Atogwe, Reed Doughty, DeJon Gomes. (4) - I think Horton only makes it if one of LL or OJA goes on the PUP list.

ST: Graham Gano, Sav Rocca, Nick Sundberg. (3) - Agreed.

PS: Niles Paul, Reggie Jones, Markus White, Clint Oldenburg, Doug Worthington, Chris Neild, Anderson Russell, Evan Royster (8) - I think it's 8 you can keep on the PS.

Suspended: Phil Buchanon.
IR/PUP: Brandon Banks. Kareem Moore
