    I am entirely happy with Osgood. This dude brings his "A" game every game.

    He will not be a Number One or two WR but he fills the void nicely at the three or four hole.

    We need unselfish players who know how to block as a WR as well and the dude is a demon. :tup:

    I would hope that he's concerned about our st coverage...

    I think everyone is.

    Osgood's spot is secure.

    Cletis Gordon is playing his way onto a spot.

    It's now up to Ray Perkins to see if he can bring the goods.

    He proved himself to me last night with that 12 yard TD run. That was impressive.

    Yeah, Perkins impressed last night.

    Cletis Gordon seemed to regress a little. However, I think he'll make the 75 man cut, and can fully redeem himself in 'Frisco to make the final 53.

    He'll make the team as a ST player, but as a WR he doesn't have enough skills to even be the #5. He has no speed for separation, and has no hops in going after the ball.

    I also worry that SD gives defensive co-ordinators a freebie when Osgood is in the game on offense. I'd bet our tendency to run when he's in there is over 75%. That would lead to some of the stacked boxes we face.
