    Sucks. I was hoping that see what we could do with Reece's explosive abilities.

    McCoy was apparently thrilled with Tourek Williams, so he likely won the 5th OLB and will stay

    Me too but he really blew it - kinda hoping he makes the PS and gets another chance down the road.

    True that!

    With the practice squad being increased to 10 players, I'd expect to see both Reese & Sorenson on our PS this year because I doubt if any other team will claim them.

    I also doubt if Tom Telesco is done making moves, and some player or two who are cut by another team may find themselves on our roster before we take on Arizona in about 10 days.

    Nothing cause he couldn't catch or run routes. I had hopes for him too but we can find a kid with his same speed next year, with a bigger body and better hands

    I was a huge reese fan when we drafted him but I cant make any kind of argument to keep him around at this point. I am still holding out hope that telesco brings in another speedy wr because im sure some will become available on the cuts to 53... the one thing our offense is lacking is that 1 guy that could blow the top off a defense

    No compelling reason to keep 3 QBs, and Reese is a project player, nothing more.

    As usual, Acee's prediction powers are piss poor:

    Brad Sorensen: Was 22-of-39 for 159 yards and two interceptions in four exhibition games (46.7 rating). Team can get away carrying three. Despite moderate production, sense is they will.

    Willie Smith: Arguably his best game of preseason came when he needed it most. He gets nod over Michael Harris in tight race.

    Sorensen played himself out of the spot when the team was very high on him last year.
    Smith I thought played as well and better at times than Harris, so that was legitimately surprising

    Well, to be fair, they didn't say Smith was cut, only that Harris made the team. That's doesn't rule out Smith entirely.

    Its weird how much Sorensen has regressed since last preseason. I don't understand it. He looked SO GOOD last preseason. Accurate, strong arm, making throws on the run, very mobile, and most impressively had a lot of poise. What happened???

    In general I've liked the look of many of the O linemen on the bubble. Joe D is obviously a brilliant coach. Wiggins, Sirles and even Wilkes can play in this league imho. Did not see Q3/4 of Cards game, did Watts get in there?

    I'd also like to see us keep Law. He looks like a player too.

    Michael Gehlken @UTgehlken · 2h
    Chargers, expected to carry four TEs, waived Mike Flacco. Younger brother of Joe. Good blocker. Practice-squad candidate.

    Michael Gehlken @UTgehlken · 25m
    Chargers waived guard Craig Watts, per source. Undrafted rookie from West Texas A&M.

    Michael Gehlken @UTgehlken · 53s
    WR Vincent Brown won't be on Chargers' 53-man roster, source says. Calf injury healing. Expected to play this season. Not for them.

    I feel for VB. He has the skills and a great attitude. His body has just betrayed him.

    I just read that the Broncos cut veteran DT Kevin Vickerson. Wonder if the Chargers might make him an offer.

    If I want a good indicator of who is getting cut, I just go down to the local sporting goods store. No wonder the V Brown jerseys are being sold for 20 bucks...

    Vickerson and Flowers on the same team would be more than happy to make the AFC West pay in spades.

    I gotta admit I'm impressed by TT/MM - they make tough cuts

    ^^^Not like the old regime, where the fan favorites stayed on and the good players were traded away or gone.

    TT is writing up Vickerson's contract as we type now. I'm curious though if it means we'll keep a extra CB or go 6 at WR.
