Post Roster Predictions?
QB - Stafford/Hill

Any reason to keep Kellen Moore? I think not. If there s an injury Thaddeus Lewis could be picked up at that point.

TB - Bush/LeShoure/Bell/Riddick

Riddick is the ?, I dont see a lot of high end potential but he might stick for a year or two.

FB - Owens

Makes it because of special teams work

TE - Pettigrew/Scheffler/M. Williams

Fauria on the outside looking in.

WR - Johnson/Burleson/Broyles/Edwards/Willis

Fuller to the practice squad. Terrence Austin gets beat out barely.

OT - Reiff/Fox/Hilliard/Waddle

Hilliard can be a swing tackle or guard in a pinch. Waddle is a developmental player with great lateral movement.

OG - Sims/Scott/Austin/Warford

C - Raiola/Gandy

Gandy has been good at guard and has experience at C.

DE - Ansah/Jones/Idonije/Lewis/Taylor

Someone s getting cut at DE and Willie Young has struggled. Jones and Idonije can play DT in pinch. Lewis is better on ST and does some things at DE better than Young does.

DT - Suh/Fairley/Mosley/Bannan

I could see CJ Mosley getting cut based on my dissatisfaction with his play. Jones/Idonije can rush from inside if needed at times.

OLB - Levy/McIntosh/Whitehead/Greenwood

MLB - Tulloch/Palmer

Either Whitehead or T. Lewis will get cut unless they step it up. Palmer hasnt been playing well enough to start but he s a proven ST player as is Greenwood.

CB - Houston/Slay/Bentley/Bartell/Green/

Chris Greenwood not healthy enough to show anything, how long can they hold on to him?

S - Quinn/Delmas/Mathis/Carey/Wendling

P - Martin
K - Akers
LS - Muhlbach

After preseason week 3

QB - Stafford/Hill/Moore

Moore finally showed something, gotta think he s more of a lock now than he was even last season. Thad Lewis will need a huge game vs Buffalo to unseat Kellen.

HB - Bush/Bell/LeShoure/Riddick

Bell looks like the clear No 2 and Riddick has shown some versatility. Montell Owens injury looked like an ACL which opens a spot.

WR - Johnson/Burleson/Broyles/Willis/Spurlock

Patrick Edwards hasnt produced despite a lot of snaps with the first team, Spurlock hasnt been a world beater but he can catch it if needed and has had the best returns.

TE - Pettigrew/Scheffler/Fauria

Williams may be IR'd with upcoming hand surgery.

OT - Reiff/Fox/Waddle/Hilliard

Waddle has played well while Fox and Hilliard have struggled.

OG - Sims/Warford/Scott/Austin

Austin may not make this cut as LeRoy Harris has some experience but Im kind of puzzled as to why Warford seems to be ahead of Scott in the mind of the Lions coaches.

C - Raiola/Gandy

LS - Don Muhlbach
K - Akers

Just stop with the Rugland comments, Akers is a decorated veteran and shown a very strong leg this preseason.

P - Martin

Doing great especially at Ford Field

DE - Jones/Ansah/Idonije/Lewis/Taylor

Will they cut Willie Young?

DT - Suh/Fairley/Bannan/Mosley

Bannan a nice add late in camp

MLB - TUlloch

OLB - Levy/Palmer/Whitehead/T. Lewis/McIntosh

none of the OLBs have looked very good

CB - Houston/Slay/Bentley/Green/Greenwood

S - Quinn/Delmas/Carey/Wendling/Mathis

Pretty nice rundown Legend. With the 2 Injuries, and Patrick edwards play, if you didnt hit the nail on the head its going to be very very close to this IMO.

Owen's knee is a short-term injury. Most likely meniscus. He was walking in the locker room today while holding his crutches, so good news there.

Greenwood is way behind everyone and Green looks bad at CB, so I could see Hope getting kept over one of them with Mathis primarily playing CB instead of safety.

ST - Muhlbach/Martin/Akers

That's 52 players. They may keep one spot open just in case someone gets hurt, but isn't put on IR. The Lions have done that before, so they can sign a replacement without having to release someone.

I think Michael Williams, Corey Fuller, Brandon Hepburn, Patrick Edwards and Theo Riddick get put on PS. I believe the Lions may decide to keep Shaun Chapas on the roster as the occasional fullback, because Reggie Bush is not a between the tackles runner and seems to do better with a lead blocker in the game. Fauria isn't as good of a blocker as Williams, but he is a far more versatile player and can be used either as an inside TE or as a slot receiver to create mismatches. I think Ronnell Lewis is the odd man out at DE. He's shown little this pre-season, and hasn't done squat on special teams, which is why he was selected. Jonte Green and Chris Greenwood should be as good as gone. Green has been terrible this pre-season and has actually been worse than he was during last season. Greenwood just can't stay healthy, and when healthy hasn't progressed. The Amari Spievey project is finally over (Thank GOD!!), and Kickalicious is getting the boot.

I will not put on blinders when it comes to our QBs performances.
