      Welcome back mac. I think Pamphile is our starting LG though, not T.

        I too keep my own roster. Glad to see you and Alfred back.

        East: Panphile has always been listed by the team as a tackle. Perhaps that will now change.

    Is Josh Allen eligible for the PS? I thought with Sweezy out for six games, Allen had a good chance to stick. Admit this is all based on one game …

    Looks like Smitty anticipates a lot of nickel and dime packages.

    The cornerback position sure looks a lot better than last season. I suspect better coaching too. Pink is probably not thrilled with Banks making the team but I think he earned his spot.

    I’m a little worried the way Josh Gordon beat Grimes last week. You know Atlanta saw it, and will go after him with Jones. Free safety better be over the top. Good to have a taller corner on the roster. We go up against some big wideouts, can the old small corner hold up? His wife doesn’t read this site I hope, she’s tougher then the old man.

    Gulfstrings, I hope Josh Allen is eligible to be on the PS as well. Not only did he step up against the Browns first stringers this year, I believe he did the same thing last year in a preseason contest. He seems to get better when the lights come on.
    Surerdudes, don’t get your panties in a twist over Grimes yet. He was beaten on a beautiful move on the first big play and was stride for stride with him on the second. Looked like he also got a little shove in the back from Gordon who is going to make a lot of CB’s look inept this year if he stays away from the weed.
