  1. Change practice squad rules?

    By golly, I like it. It gives the team some security to invest a draft choice in a player who needs some time to develop. It gives the player some security on salary, and preserves his freedom to move to another team.
  2. Change practice squad rules?

    Absolutely they should be allowed to come up to the 53.
  3. Change practice squad rules?

    Never thought about that either! Giving a drafted player protected status on the PS would also have to mean protecting their draft slot salary. And no, they wouldn't be locked onto the PS. They could be called up any time. One question: If a protected player is called up during the season, could he be sent back to the PS and still be protected, or should he lose his protected status?
  4. Change practice squad rules?

    Yup. MLB have farm clubs and the NBA has a D league. The NFL has kind of dropped the ball on this. Would you still allow draft choices to have PS protected status for their rookie year?
  5. Change practice squad rules?

    Interesting. I hadn't thought of that. So if at any point a player is good enough to make the 53, he loses his protected status. That means that, if a drafted player is on the bubble, he almost automatically goes to the PS at the reduction to 53. That might open things up for some undrafted rooks. Under current rules, only 45 are active on any game day, so maybe then a drafted player on the bubble would make the 53 and be a game day inactive. I think that's what they basically did with Davon House his rookie year. If all 53 were active, giving rookie draft choices protected status on the PS might make sense.
  6. Change practice squad rules?

    Substitute Post for Cartoon, Poster for Cartoonist, People Who Don't Agree with You for Republican/Trumpkin, and then tell me how many kinds of posters we have on this site! Since this is a quiet time in the NFL, I thought we might discuss a change in practice squad rules. Here's an idea. Expand the PS to 15 and give players drafted by a team "protected" status for one year on the PS. Many low round draft choices need time to develop. Would it make sense, if a team has some low round picks that have potential, but not enough to make the 53 man roster, to allow the team that drafted them to carry those players on the PS, but not allow other teams to raid them for one year?

    The only numbers I'm interested in are interceptions, passes defended, and QB ratings against Mr. Savage.

    Oh. Well, IMHO there's a difference between an accent ask/axe and grammatical errors, i.e., I should of gone, instead of I should have gone. I used to give my students two typos/grammatical errors before returning their papers for revision. I never questioned their accents in class.

    America is a big place with lots of accents. What's the big deal?

    I never understood what all the angst was about. Gary was always a top 10 prospect and we were lucky enough to get him at 12. This season he will take some reps to give the Smiths a rest and next season he will be pushing to start.

    You could be right. I'm just speculating.

    MM seems to have really liked Kizer. From his point of view we got plenty enough for Randall. More to the point, now that MM is history, what becomes of Kizer? MLF isn't committed to Kizer AT ALL. Bringing in two UDFA QBs looks ominous for Kizer from my point of view. I could see Boyle as the #2 with one of the UDFA on the PS.

    Or, maybe being dyslexic, he thought it was 25?
