  • final 53 man roster, not counting pace

    Here it is guys, pending the addition of pace and any changes for the waiver wire. To my knowledge, neither fisher nor kennedy were put on IR, so i have them as on the roster for now.

    qb- bulger, chandler, smoker
    rb- faulk, jackson, gordon
    fb-goodspeed, harris
    wr-bruce, holt, looker, mcdonald, curtis, furrey
    te-cleeland, mamliamula, brake
    ot-williams, randall, tercero
    og-timmerman, dishman, nutten, andy king
    c-mccollom, turner

    specialits- wilkens, landetta, massey

    de- little, fisher, hargrove, flowers
    dt-pickett, lewis, t. jackson, howard, kennedy
    lb-pisa, thomas, chillar, polley, newsom, trev faulk
    cb-butler, fisher, garrett, groce
    safety- aeneas, archuletta, coady, bronson, shivers

    If I am counting correctly, that makes 53. Someone will have to go if Pace ever gets his big fat ass onto the team and signs the tender.

    ramming speed to all, i await your comments and observations.

    No surprises... remaining questions are who gets the chop when Pace is back and do we try and pick up a decent DT from the offcuts

      We dont necessarily have to cut anyone, we could put jimmy kennedy on IR, but I think that you are correct in the belief that we are saving the kennedy to IR move for a defensive tackle, or possibly a CB, from the waiver wire. I looked and it doesnt look too promising at the DT position, not that expected much. Holsey was a nice signing for depth but he never got healthy for us. I am not sure which lineman would go since even with Pace we are thin at tackle.

        Final Cuts are Finally In!!!!!
        by Guest
        This was just posted on the post dispatch website. One of our more technologically savy brothers can post the link.

        11 final cuts (keep in mind, pace does not count as a roster spot until he signs the tender), plus erik jensen and tom knight put on the IR. I think that they are stashing jensen, they said his knee injury last week was minor. Apparantly, neither kennedy nor fisher were put on IR.

        Also, we signed zach bronson as a backup safety, formerly of the niners.

        Cut- Holsey, nigel eason, dwight anderson, spoon, noll, jones, mcgorty, justin lucas, sean moran, alridge

        Who made the team that was "on the bubble"- coady, brian howard, trev faulk (over spoon for the last linebacker spot), mike brake as the #3 tight end.

        Biggest surprise was that holsey didnt make it, even though he was lousy in preseason. At defensive tackle, we have brian howard and tyoka behind the starters. Lord help us if either of the two main guys get hurt.

        Practice squad to be determined.

        I will post in a separate post the final 53 man roster, for now, exclusive of pace.

        Updated projected 53 man roster
        by Guest
        Updated 53 man roster to reflect the recent moves (praying of course for no injuries in camp that effect this)

        Offense (26)

        bulger, chandler, smoker
        faulk, jackson, gordon
        goodspeed, harris
        mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
        bruce, holt, curtis, looker, mcdonald, furrey
        pace, turley, williams
        timmerman, mccollum, king, tercero
        wohlambaugh, eby or turner (the other makes the practice squad)

        Defense (24)

        pickett, lewis, kennedy, holsey/brian howard
        little, fisher, jackson, hargrove, flowers/moran
        thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (newsom, spoon, lloyd, trev faulk, justin smith, mcwilliams)
        fisher, butler, groce, garrett
        a williams, archuleta, coady, shivers, lucas

        specialists (3)

        wilkens, massey, nicassio/landetta

        Other guys with a shot, but more likely candidates for the practice squad (unless someone gets hurt)

        nick burley, sheddrick copeland, nijrell eason, brian sump (kick returner)

        Other practice squad candidates- the 4th qb, coleman (wr), anyone else??????

        If Moran gets beat out, he probably gets waived. If brian howard gets beat out, he probably winds up on the practice squad, along with two linebackers and at least one guy from the secondary.

        Any updated thoughts from anyone?

        The Final 53 Man Roster-Very Few spots available
        by Guest
        Lets take a quick look at what we know about the final 53 man roster. For purposes of this post, lets be optimistic and assume that no one gets hurt before the season starts.

        Offense (27)

        bulger, chandler, smoker
        bruce, holt, curtis, looker, mcdonald, furrey
        mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
        goodspeed, harris
        pace, turley, grant williams
        wohlabaugh, eby
        timmerman, mccollom, andy king, larry turner, tercero
        faulk, jackson, gordon

        Note: I am probably over by one offensive lineman, ie it is likely that turner could be on the practice squad

        Defense (25)

        Little, Fisher, Flowers, Hargrove, Tyoka Jackson, Moran
        Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy, Bell (or another veteran if we dont win the claim on bell)
        a williams, archuletta, coady, shivers, lucas/walton/copeland
        fisher, butler, groce, garrett
        thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (newsom, jeremy lloyd, nick burley, jason mcWilliams, Justin Smith, spoon, trev faulk)

        Specialists (3)

        Wilkens, Landetta, Massey

        That gets us to 55, meaning I am two guys over. Probably means one of the offensive lineman (ie turner) winds up on the practice squad, and potentially moran doesnt make it or we dont sign another defensive tackle). Positionally, we carried six linebackers last year so i am assuming that we wont carry more this year, but if we do, someone else will have to get cut or put on the practice squad.

        The practice squad this year expands to 8 players. Candidates include Larry Turner, safties and corners that dont make the roster (ie shedrick copeland), nick burley, possibly michael coleman again at wr, the qb we just signed (micahnah sp?), and especially some number of the linebackers that dont make the team since we will need depth there for special teams play.

        To me, at the margain, the key will be the ability to contribute on special teams. I believe that the most viscious battle will be for the backup linebacker spots since there will be no clear cut answers.

        I defy you to find another team in the nfl that has so few spots up for grabs at this point of the year. I take that as a good thing since i think that our young guys will improve given the year of experience. While we have not added a lot via free agency, we have added some key help in the draft and we have retained some solid young guys.

        I look forward to your thoughts and input as always.

        Rams roster into training camp
        by Guest
        During the ceremony my daughter and I held tonight at exactly 5pm central, as the players were checking in for camp, i did my best public address anouncer imitation for her and recited the entire 53 man roster from memory as she cheered for each guy. I believe that barring injury, the offense is basically set unless sump beats out furrey for a receiver spot in order to serve as the return guy.

        bubble spots- backup linebackers (special teams key). we will carry six, two spots available for tony newsom, spoon, lloyd, justin smith, trev faulk, mwilliams.
        Defensive end- Will moran make the team? I predict no.
        Defensive Tackle _ Will brian howard make the team. I predict practice squad.
        Punter- Will Landetta get beat out? Could go either way.

        Here is what it looks like

        bulger, chandler, smoker
        faulk, jackson, gordon
        goodspeed, harris
        bruce, holt, looker, curtis, macdonald, furrey (sump)
        mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
        pace, turley, williams
        wolabaugh, turner
        timmerman, mccollum, king, tercero

        Wilkens, Landetta/Nicasso, Massey

        Little, fisher, tyoka jackson, hargrove, flowers (moran)
        pickett, lewis, kennedy, holsey (brian howard)
        thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (spoon, lloyd, newson, burley, justin smith, trev faulk, mcwilliams)
        fisher, butler, garrett, groce
        aeneas williams, archuleta, coady, shivers, lucas

        Biggest variable, outside of the backup linebacker spots is injuries. Hopefully, we will make it through camp and the preseason with nothing more than a few bumps and bruises here and there.

        ramming speed to all, as always, i would love your analysis of the roster,

        sign the big man
