Like I said before, McCants will not be cut and WILL make the roster. Cloman, I don't think will make the active roster but will probably be on our practice squad. The Skins aren't stupid enough to let Darnerien leave.

Darnerian McCants - 2002

Recp: 21
Yds: 256
Lng: 32
TD: 2
Rush: 1
Yds: 9
TD: 0
Fum: 1
Lost: 1

If there is a chance that someone could provide better numbers, if Spurrier is hot to get rid of Betts due to his injury and missed camp, why isn't the same true of McCants? None of his numbers are that doggone impressive. I don't think I would miss him if someone who could produce better can be found in the group we have on the roster right now.

I was hoping to find drops in the stats - but I couldn't. I just seem to remember him being a 60/40 catch/drop proposition last year.

How many games did Spurrier even let him play, though? He would have put up much better numbers if he was given a chance.

According to what I read - he was out for seven games. So doing my complicated mathematics in my head ::grin:: - that means he played in 9 games, averaging just over two catches per game.

Still not a massive production amount.

but hey... it's just my opinion. If they keep him I hope he proves me wrong. This is still our Skins we are talking about so hopefully whatever move helps us win the division and move into the playoffs..... that is the one I hope they make :)

This next game will tell the tale on who will be cut or stays... I think Coleman is on the bubble... Has a great chance of making the first team. Johnson is in the same boat!!

What I would like to know is who seems to be the better blocker out of this group, Cloeman, Johnson or Mc Cants?? That is one of Spurriers biggest concerns with his WR. Blocking could be their ticket in or out because they all have ability to run and catch but who is the best blocker!!!

If I had to guess from what I have read I would go with Coleman he seems to have awesome hands and plays through pain. I just dont see Mc Cants playing through pain IMO maybe I am wrong but thats just a feeling...

Coles, Russell, Jacobs, Gardner, Coleman in the redzone!! OMG... With that combination of speed and size defensive nightmare!!

I have not watched one game or seen one practice so I maybe way out of line.... but thats what we do in preseason!!
