    Final cuts made



    http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/f...orts-headlines

    They cut St. Pierre and Olson, Johnson and Haley, but kept Ross and Daniels, only 3 Safeties and 7 CBs (CMac, Rolle, Ivy, Pittman, Martin, Olgesby and Prude)

    The roster from the team's site:

    And depth chart:

    Is that depth chart right? Demetrius is the 5th WR?

    2 QB's behind this line???? That one is a shocker.But in Ozzie and Billicks mind the line is fine so it makes perfect sense.

    2 QBs is fine. In the event that both our QBs get hurt, we can sign someone off the street that would give us the same production (or lack thereof) that St. Pierre or Olson would have given us.

    If they both get hurt in the same game, we're basically screwed anyway.

    I'm sure they expect to get either Olson or St. Pierre (if he is still eligible) onto the PS (with the understanding that if another team comes calling, the Ravens will add him to the 53-man roster instead).

    I suspect they'll sign some other team's cut QB and release one of the special teams players.

    I predict both Olson and St Pierre are Browns by the end of the day.

    Solid Roster.
    I think they are going to try to wait a week or so after other teams make thier claims off waivers and set thier practice squads and try to stash Ross and Martin on the PS, and resign St Pierre for the 53

    I find it hard to believe we're going to go into the season with only three offensive tackles, 2 of which couldn't even crack the starting lineup over Zeus last year.

    Secondly, I find it hard to believe that the three of them will make it through the entire season without missing any time.

    If this is what they're thinking and is in fact their actual approach at this position, then we have a serious problem!!

    They had better start looking at the 3rd QB spot now!!

    Like I said, St. Pierre or Olson wouldn't be any better than said person off the street learning the system. We are screwed any way you look at it if McNair and Boller both get hurt. Both Olson and St. Pierre looked like crap against guys that are probably cut now. Cutting them both gives us the opportunity to keep a guy like Ross or Martin instead of exposing them to any team that wanted them.

    Besides, it's not like these two are going to be getting alot of calls for jobs. Olson may, St. Pierre, probably not.

    The only problem I have with the roster is lack of a backup at RT. I have no idea what the FO is doing here. From everything that we have read Terry can not play RT. What happens if Pashos gets hurt? I guess they are going to try to find someone out there in the cuts.

    Think we'll have any interest in Omar Jacobs who was cut by Pittsburgh? I loved him at Bowling Green. Would be ideal as a #3 QB/project.

    Re: Final cuts made

    First of all don't get your panties in a bunch over the first 53. The first 53 is very rarely ever the same 53 as the 1st week or 2nd week. So I am not concerned yet. They will need to get another OL somewhere you would think.

    I find it suprising that they kept 5 RBs. If PJ Daniels wasn't a draft pick then I think he would have been gone. They love Ross because of his speed and he can also be a returner. They most likely want him to replace BJ next year or by the end of the year. If we make a move, I would expect either Daniels to go or one of the CBs. We have a lot of CBs on the roster as well.

    How come they didn't show a backup for Reed or Scott? Oh goody, Clarence is second team..

    I agree with Kevin. I'm pretty sure they're looking for a veteran O-lineman to shore up our shaky line. Martin's spot may not be too secure if they find a good prospect.
