Regarding the DL. I have heard mentions of using Jason Hunter as a down lineman. I didn't piece it together until I read the comment above about Jenkins moving in and playing more DT, but I wonder if those two aspects are linked.

Lumpy Lumpkin makes the team!!! I'm glad to see that! To me, he had more up side then Morency. Herron......well.......i like him. He's not flashy, just dependable. But i think in the end Lumpy showed ALOT this preseason.
The rest of the cuts don't really surprise me that much. The ONLY one that surprised me was Herron.

Physical Assultt: I am pissed, shocked and dismayed; GB cut Herron and the DT we just picked up is already on IR along with Jansen & Coston. Can't seem to keep anyone healthy long enough to play a whole game. Would that fall under a failure in conditioning or just GB's piss poor luck seeing as this seasons training camp was one of the easiest ever? Think the game on Monday night will provide a horror show on our "OL". Only set positions are the tackles. Who's doing the long snapping now?

The problem I always saw with Herron was his upright running. Never buried his head, NEVER ran downhill.

There'll be more rearranging as the week progresses. Probably Gafford will get his spot back.

Noah never really had a chance on the roster. Pumpkin(ha ha) and Jackson are both so young and simply out play him. I liked both him and Mo. But its part of football.

I would guess just because "lumpkin" and 'pumpkin" rhyme.

Thats the way i see it. He was dependable, but was never gonna be anymore then what he was. He wasn't gonna develope into a pounding guy thats gonna make the BIG plays.

Agree with the Herron vs. Bush question. Hopefully we'll pull in another gem like Grant. Lumpkin looked good in preseason, but i'm still not completely sold on Jackson.

I think what bothers me most about cutting both herron and Mo is that they were the best backs on the team at blitz pickup. With our shakey OLine i dont think the importance of this can be underestimated.

If our O-Line is a question mark, why cut the players who pick up the blitz best. Makes no sense. Why we kept Ahmad Bush is beyond me too.
