    A lot of guys are going to face either being cut straight out, or take a pay cut or be cut.
    I wouldn't be surprised if Tuck, Webby, DD, Baas, Boley, etc.... are part of at least one of those groups.
    The hardest one for TC will be Diehl I'd imagine

    I blame the coaching staff more than AB or Nicks for that situation.

    Next year, some positions - including RB - need to be wide open to competition. Bradshaw, Brown, and Wilson should all be given a fair chance to be the main guy. And if Bradshaw is once again riding around on a rascal, instead of practicing, then he doesn't deserve to annointed the starter.

    I think the same process should be applied on defense.....Tuck has been great for us in the past, but this season was a massive letdown.

    However, I think Killdrive has a Bradshaw obsession that hurt the running game this year.

    I could go either way on this.
    How much pull do Gilbride or Fewell have in player retention?

    I don't think the discussion is really happening if its just the $3.75 - his cap hit is over $6mil for next year.

    They have as much say in that as Reese has in who gets to start and play on a weekly basis.

    I don't think Reese has a lot to say about who plays week in and week out other than discussing the injiury list with TC and Mara. That's why we have and a Head Coach and a GM instead of one who does both.

    I don't see how Bradshaw is not on the team next year. You mean to tell me Coughlin will cut loose Bradshaw and go with Wilson, Brown, Scott, whoever... Brown can't stay on the field and has only played a few games to judge him on anyway, and Scott who? What has Scott done. Nothing.

    He may be on the team but not likely as the feature back but in a reduced role with a reduced salary package

    How bad is his foot injury? Can he come back healthy next season? The guy still had over 1000 yards while playing hurt and missing some games.
