    why the hell is this guy still on the team?
    why did we cut nande and let "donnie friggin nickey" back on. i know nande hadnt proved much yet... but he was good in college and the most athletic LB out of the whole draft last year. slow in the head... yes. but he woulda had time. instead we keep donnie f'n nickey.

    someone please explain so maybe i can go to sleep tonight without my head in the toilet

    I'm assuming he's the first guy on the axe list when we sign someone. Or maybe Toone.

    Don't put your head in the crapper buddy. It's not even worth it. I agree, that this is a head scratcher, but my theory is that Nickey was kept on the roster because he's usually one of the first guys down the field on kick returns.

    We already cut Toone, I though.

    I think Toone has made it so far...

    Like him or not Nickey is a ST Demon... I would imagine that Clauss/Gardner would be ahead of Nickey on the chopping block.

    Clauss and Gardner have the benefit of injuries to Waddell and Long.

    I just mean that I think their spots could be taken by waiver/trade upgrades

    of the "2-4 new faces"

    I look for DL, OL, LB/DB
    in that order... certainly the possiblity of trades makes it difficult to predict anything.

    yeah gardener is another one that makes my stomache upset. raymond was better than gardener.
    nande coulda been "a special teams demon" too... to bad we'll never know. i had high hopes for him. maybe we'll be able to get them both on the practce squad.
