    Green is not eligible for the PS since he's been on the 53-man roster for a couple of years.

    As others have said, Green became a victim of the quality depth that this team now has. Basically, he a Gary Stills are the same player and Gary is the better ST player. Stills also showed that he is more than a ST player and IMO, pretty much played better than Green in the base defense as well.

    I'm sure they didn't want to let him go, but he lost out in the numbers game. Someone will definitely pick him up. Several have mentioned Cleveland, but SF has a higher waiver priority, and I think Nolan may go after him as well (hopefully).

    Wow, I was a little shocked about Rod Green, but I heard that he was on the bubble.

    Look at the other LBs that they have to choose from. I think out of those that are listed (Mike Smith, Gary Stills, Dennis Haley, etc) they are choosing one. Gary Stills is a great ST player too, but Smith has played very well. Hopefully, they can keep two somehow. I would rather not risk AD and Bart Scott out there on ST a whole lot.

    we should be able to keep both Stills and Smith. Tim Johnson and Dennis Haley won't make the 53 man cut.

    I actually think one of them will. It obviously all depends on what other positions come into play at the back end of the roster, but right now, it looks like there would be room.

    The likely roster issues affectring this decision are:

    1. Do they keep more than 8 OLmen? Unless they pick one up from the outside, they really only have 8 that are deserving. Finding another OT would be great. I guess we can pray that Minn cuts Rosenthal and he finds his way here.

    2. Do they carry 6 CBs? Usually it's only 5, but with so many young guys, they may not want to risk losing any of them. Obviously, CMac, Rolle and Ivy are in, but then it's either 2 or 3 of the rest - Pittman, Matin, Prude, and Olgesby. I really could see them carrying 6, especially if.....

    3. Do they carry only 3 Safeties? With BL Ward gone - really gone with the injury settlement - do they keep Winbourne as the 4th Safety or just go with 3?

    4. Do they risk cutting St. Pierre and talk Olsen into staying on the PS - if he passes through waivers - as essentially the 3rd QB. Let's face it, if McNair and Boller both get knocked out of a game, we're basically screwed whether we have a 3rd QB or not.

    5. Does Ross make the team as the 4th RB/back-up return specialist?

    Who cares about Rod Green,he was a special teamer and every once in a while a 3rd down PR specialist,which we now have Cody for.The most alarming thing is the move of putting Rimph on IR.It looked like at the end last year he played decent,compared to the garbage that Vincent is right now.Lets hope some veteran O line men get the boot cause Im not confident in Chester or brown right now.

    Some care about Green because he was a good special teams players and a good personality. He has the talent to play in this league, and someone will get him.

    I would like for us to sign a backup at RT. Adam Terry is a LT.
    Listening to the radio on yesterday, there was talk of why it is not easy to transition from LT to RT. The radio host mentioned that it is like going to Europe and having to adjust to driving on the leftside of the road instead of the right.

    Aaron mentioned that we are not likely to see any additions and that the final 53 will be the team.

    As a result, don't look for any OL or Safety signings. Looks like we will have 8 OL.

    People are shocked about Rod Green? I'm not. The kid never developed like expected. You never hear his name when he does play. We have other LBs that stepped it up like Mike Smith and deserve a spot. We drafted Green for his "potential" which never panned out.

    TLT hopefully will make the PS. Elling may be resigned if Koch has a hard time with KO duty.

    I wish I knew why everyone likes LaTendresse so much. I assume it's for the same reason everyone hoped Abney would make the roster and contribute. LaTendresse made two catches in a scrimmage and all of a sudden he has a future in the NFL? Why isn't everyone hoping Bryant makes the team/PS too? I mean, his catch vs. the Skins was far better than any catch that LaTendresse made.

    So true fanatic.They see a few good catches and think.."this could be our next great steal of a player!!" when in reality these guys are just camp bodies that give the real recievers a chance to go to the sidelines and get a drink during practice,and keep them from not getting hurt in the preseason games.

    I thought TLT played really well when he was on the field (fearless over the middle) and Boller certainly had a good rapore with him. I see no problem with wanting him to make th PS.
