I've mentioned before that I think MacDougall has struggled a bit. I have also mentioned he is doing better each day. I said I thought there were NIs potentially ahead of him...one of those is Webster. Webster continues to look good consistently. Now...MacDougall may show more in an actual game...one of his big strengths is laying out some hits...we shall see. The thing is this...numbers come into play and MacDougall is slated to make I think 120...guessing Webster is at 70...Something to really watch. in PS1
Both Pierzchalski and Alex Anthony continue to look good....I said it last season...I said it in the off season...I said it after Minis....I think they intend to dramatically increase Anthony's role, and I am a fan of what I have seen in limited action. meanwhile Pierzchalski's big frame and pretty solid hands...can't deny that opens a lot of options as well. Could we see the Canadian Air Force version 2? I think at times we will. Bagg/Pierzchalski/Allen/Getz/Demski...I like it. I think all of these guys can do meaningful reps...which is huge if someone goes down. I know piles of people have said they have had concerns over the team's depth at NI WR over the past 12 months...I have always been on the other side of that and felt the club was in good shape...like I have said...they dealt a promising player in Bastien because they know they had the depth.
Still nothing, i don't think, from Steinhauer...but it is pretty clear that the club wants at minimum heavy NI rotation on the DL. They seem to be in mountains better shape there than I was hoping.
I think Williams is starting to lose more stock and that Miller is moving ahead of him on the charts.
There is just plain good competition everywhere. Usually you see 2 or 3 spots that are truly up for a fight...not this year.
2 on the OL...both of the Imports are seriously putting pressure to be kept...and there were already 2 solid guy sthere, so that is saying a lot
2 LB spots, maybe 1 DB
a minimum of 1 at WR/SB...I would say 2
RB is no lock and the import guys...Allen and Cobb...still are not going...Messam is looking pretty impressive...might be a shocker there...now true backup hurts the odds of that though.
QB...no lock on the backup spot...#2 is still a fight.
Safety...IMO anyways...is not a lock
NI on the DL for high rotation spots or more!
Looks like a new kicker on the roster...shocked if he isn't
so yeah...a solid 8-10 high rotations out there...it is has been a great camp to watch and it is only going to get better.
