    Look for Jackson and FLoyd to shine vs GB ,both have had a strong camp and should see lots of reps.

    Whitehurst is another player who should impress big time on offense.


    McNeil will see some of KGB in this game and it will be interesting to compare his game vs Jordan.

    Wilhelm and Cooper should both see a lot of action as well , both have had a strong camp thus for.

    Cromartie will be in on nickle dime packages and for folks who have not seen him he will stand out expect him to make some plays but don't be shocked if he looks a little green.

    What for some of us will be interesting will be the use of the Elephant set for the Bolts. TE Manumaleuna, with Gates and Jackson wide , the Bolts will sometimes split LT wide while leaving Neal in the backfield.

    It sure does create some match up issues with the defense and LT as caught several skinny post off this formation in camp.

    Players on the hot seat.

    1) ILB Carlos Polk: His age and lack of potential hurts him , he is Martys guy but Smith may veto Marty

    2) DT Ryan Bingham: He has looked pretty good in camp but he has been injury proned and a challenger has slipped into camp in the form of Alvin Smith who has looked pretty good.

    3) K Kurt Smith:Must put his kicks into the end zone or have Kaeding kick them short other wise he won't be around long.

    4) S Lott , Pippens , Meeuwsen , Milligan are in a battle for what could be one spot and while Milligan made the Pro Bowl last season as a ST player he has made it known he wants to play in Miami.
    Smith may make a trade other wise it is a very tight competition.

    5) If the Bolts keep just 8 LB and it looks like Edwards will get traded to the Saints that leaves Merriman , Godfrey ,Foley ,Phillips ,Whilhelm , Cooper, as near locks with Harris ( missed most of T.C. injured) Dobbins ( speed on ST helps him a lot)
    Gbaja-Biamila ( Best OLB in this group but can he also play ILB?)
    Pollard, ( MAY BE A LONG SHOT), Archer, ( on the first bus out)

    6) We need another CB bad and Smith needs to see if we have one on this roster or if he must go get one.

    Do you really think that he could step up and fill in if we have a injury? He sure hasn't done anything the impress me yet.

    Keep in mind we always have a CB hurt.

    Umm, what? Best OLB of the group?:icon_huh:

    I think he is one of the best if not the best of the group fighting for a spot on the roster however is being a OLB only hurts his chances imop.

    Sorry but im just not buying that he is better than Merriman, Phillips or Foley. Remember, he was let go by the Raiders.

    I do think Akbar is a great guy from what ive read and i wish him success....whether it is here or elsewhere. He COULD make the team, but is a long shot . Id be surprise if he beat out Harris.

    Akbar's pub is blind local homerism at this point.

    Until he does something, he is just camp meat.

    AGB has always been a decent pass rusher, so I think in the second half he'll get teh chance and will indeed impress some players. With how well Cooper and Wilhelm are coming along I wouldn't be surprised to see trade talk for Edwards really really heat up

    Merriman, Phillips or Foley are not fighting for a spot. I said he was one of if not the best from the group fighting for a roster spot., but that his inability to project inside may cost him in his fight with Dobbins , Polk , Harris and company.
