Why is Ryan Switzer on the roster?

Recommended Posts

Seriously. Why? He is force fed the ball and produces jack ****. He's cool with Bug Ben and likes to kiss fans' butts by acting goody goody but he's awful as a football player.

He’s not really the first look on anything, so it’s not a huge deal. He is consistent and reliable. 

I do have a problem with them seeming to want to get him MORE work (aka, his backfield stuff). I don’t think he has earned more looks. But so much of the stuff people complain about he isn’t the primary. He’s a checkdown and a hot and that’s about it. Just wish he could make 1 person miss.

I understood why they traded for him last year with Rogers hurt and needing someone to take over the return duties. However, I much rather have had Spencer make the teams this season over him. Even though it was a small sample Spencer looked electric with the ball in his hands. Switzer never makes me think he is going to break off a big return or do something after the catch. He's a safety valve.

I couldn't caree less if he's the 6th option in the pass game as he lacks any ability to make a play. He's actually worse than when they used to feed Carey Davis.

might as well add a few other players to the title of this thread, maybe coaches too.  Moncrief though, what was colbert thinking?

When it comes to Moncrief, the same thing we were all thinking. He played with bad QBs and still did okay. What is he capable of with an HOF QB

He bought ice cream for everyone in training camp.

Add Nix to this. He will end up with 4 catches for 11 yards on the season and we do not bring him in to block on short yardage situations.

Nix is not a skill issue.  It's a coaching issue to not use him.  That's kinda crappy to include him on that.

That's terrible logic.  Lets cut Rudolph then.  Or anyone we know won't dress.

Who remembers when our ST was atrocious? Yes it still has its moments but just a few years back does anyone remember when the worst part of our team was ST? How we were constantly allowing huge returns?

Nix is fairly cheap and an excellent ST player. He is also an excellent blocker though not utilized often.

While maybe Matakevich could've lost his spot to someone better, was there someone? ST matters, I'm not about to cut bait with every single player that can do it.

 If you plan your roster right you have 11 Offense, 11 defensive and 11 ST starters (kicker/punter is included of course in that #)

Some of those 11 ST might also be part of the other 22. That gives you 20 or more spots for depth. Let's not pretend like those front 33 arent all equally important to success.

BB gets it. You know how I know? 6 SBs since Tom Brady became their QB
