Final roster, your opinions??

6 posts in this topic

some tough decisions we had quite a bit of talent and depth out there...it's always nice to have tough decisions thats mean you have some good players.

the players i was happy to see make the team were asher allen, reynaud, young, and onatolu...and of course percy.

asher looked pretty good out there this preseason,looked like he was a starter out there playing with 2nd and 3rd stringers...reynaud had some nice plays at wr and special teams...young looked shifty and solid, never know if peterson or taylor go down for awhile it's nice to have a guy that might be able to come in and make a big play.

onatolu looked like a special teams guru out there...almost every kickoff you heard his name...we need that...on that note i think our special teams have played real good...that will be huge for us not giving up a bunch of free points or letting teams start at mid field all the time like last season.

percy looked good except for that dropped TD....but he made some nice catches in traffic and broke some tackles...he gets good seperation on routes he should be real good this season...he looked fast and fluent on his kickoff returns...i could see him breaking a few of those this year.

They definitely had some tough decisions. But I don't think they'll miss anyone that they cut. I think the biggest question mark for this team is how quickly the offensive line can gel. Anytime you have 40% turnover on the line, there's a transition period. Hopefully it doesn't take too long and this team can get on a roll. Should be a fun season.

I think you nailed it with the o-line needing to gel. I certainly hope they come together and can eliminate the penalties. Penalties kill us every year.

Reynaud will be the big suprise this year on offense/special teams and Onatolu will be a monster on special-teams. Congrats to Cooper for making the team as an undrafted free agent and backing up Sullivan. Should be a great year...can't wait to see them get it started!!

Cooper's on the practice squad. They picked up some guy from Denver (I believe) to back up Sullivan.

i thought sully was real solid this preseason personally...not many mistakes at all from him and i seen him put some big blocks out there and even did some pulling and got up into the second level.

loadholt played ok...he seemed solid until later in the games when he started to struggle against speed...he needs to get his legs under him for the long haul.

overall i think the o-line looked pretty solid...of course there is work to be done but they looked solid i thought.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
