Intriguing training camp battles that are becoming evident

1. Quarterback
I hope Dorsey has enough sense to realize that if he needs money for the cap, Chase Daniel is sucking out 3 million this year. Bray and Murray are both unprovens, but one would hope that training camp and preseason would start to show that either Bray or Murray is good enough to be backup QB material. Were that to happen, the other guy would take the 3rd spot and hopefully kick Daniel to the curb.

2. Offensive line
What a freaking mess. We're bound to keep a shit ton of fatties on the final 53 roster, assuming we want to keep Kush around. After Fisher, Hudson, and Stephenson as the starters, it's anybody's guess. I'm going to assume Dr. Frenchie stays aboard because we wouldn't be so stupid as to try to stash him away on the practice squad, right? Besides, do you see anybody else on the team who can be trusted to play OT? I know Linkenbach does, but... eww. I don't want him the primary swing tackle.

So it's down to the guards now. Linkenbach should be depth at RG/RT; making him the starter just exacerbates our continuity problem next year when Hudson will likely walk AND we have to replace RG again. Jeff Allen will probably stick around (blech). So I really believe here that if the team wants to avoid doing something stupid like letting Dr. Frenchie get plucked off the waivers, they need to make the starting RG spot a winner take all situation between Fulton and Johnson. They may end up keeping 4 guards on the roster, with Linkenbach counting as a swing guy, but there are THREE dudes whose comfortable side is on the right. Somebody is going to have to move to LG incase Allen goes down. At this point I have no clue what their plans are for that. I would hope they'd try to move Johnson to left, but we'll see.

3. Cornerback
This is a problem, but a good problem. We're six guys deep:

Smith
Cooper
Flowers
Gaines
Owens
Parker

All of those guys are worth keeping on the roster, and we may try to stash them all away. But it's also possible that we only go with 5, in which case the low man has to either switch to safety or get raped. What's interesting about this battle is not only finding out if the staff will cut a hardy veteran like Flowers in training camp just to accelerate the eventual cap cut we'll need to perform at some point, but it's figuring out how the team will make use of each individual CB's skill during games. I wouldn't be surprised to see us dress at least 5 CBs each game for special teams reasons.

4. Safety
So no, we didn't draft a safety, but this has been an ongoing anticipated training camp battle. Here are the dudes:

Eric Berry
Husain Abdullah
Sanders Commings
Jerron McMillian
Malcolm Bronson
Daniel Sorenson

We got Berry (duh). Abdullah is penciled in as the starter at FS. It's highly unlikely that Commings goes anywhere (except possibly IR again). So there are 1-2 spots for McMillian, Bronson, and Sorenson, and one of them needs to be a SS depth spot. That means McMillian and Bronson are basically the only challengers.

I have no ****ing clue who Bronson is. He was supposedly a part of our training camp and preseason, but I never saw him play a single goddamn down in those games-- not even in the final game when every backup and their mother was playing most of the game. But in spite of all that, we kept him aboard on the practice squad all year over some other safeties who were probably more deserving, like McDougle. Perhaps Dorsey and Reid know something we don't about that guy. I'm willing to say no, but he's a wildcard. I'm also going to assume that Sorenson takes the 5th safety spot if we keep 5. So there's just a lot of question marks at safety. They're intriguing question marks, but question marks nonetheless.

I am curious to see what Nico brings to the table. It would benefit us greatly to have him beat out Mays.

Give me Mays, he's probably no better but atleast plays with a nasty streak.

I don't want "Suh" level dirty, but a nasty shot here and there is probably a good thing for this bunch of soft bitches.

Now I dont know if that's just him trying to boost his draft stock.

Now that the draft is over, maybe he get a different story.

correct me if I'm wrong but didn't both Nico and James-Michael Johnson(s) both start or play significantly in that Chargers game?

I mean if we are crowning Rishaw Johnson a starting RG spot by his performance in that Chargers game then by all means, one of these Johnsons had to play better than the other.

I really can't recall. Good question though.

Apparently he's been medically cleared, so he's a go. That being said, I bet the Chiefs sandbag it hard if they want to keep all 4 QB's and need to toss somebody on the IR spot. Even though IR isn't where you'd want him to be, he still gets to study and get time in at the facility. I'd rather IR/PS Bray though.

**** crowning Rishaw the starting RG, guys' going to have his hands full in camp with Fulton and linkenbach IMO.

And don't forget, both Hudson and Kush can play Center and Guard spots, so the loser of the Center job (Kush) might be battling for a Guard spot.

I'm betting Nico beats out JMM but not by much, one of those guys will get cut this year to make room for the secondary space we need.

That's foolish and stupid. Just because some 5th round picks get cut sometimes doesn't mean it happens all the time, much less to QBs with such high floors for development as Aaron Murray.

This isn't ****ing Tyler Wilson we're talking about here.

Nico is technically backing up DJ, and from what I saw in the San Diego game, he's doing a terrible job at it.

James Michael-Johnson is the dude behind Mays.

Chase and his $3.5M clipboard holding ass needs to go, and give that time to try to develop one of these longshots into something - since we're never going to take a QB high in the draft.

Mays is such a turd. His only value would be a late cheap shot on jughead. Hell their players set out to injure.

I would be. If Murray or Bray get on the field for whatever reason or light it up in the preseason there is a chance you can move them for a decent pick. NOBODY is giving you shit for Chase Daniel. Like I stated earlier regarding Murray. Buy low, develop, showcase and sale high.
