he wasn't cut but he'll be a 3rd stringer, finn is now officially a starter and roddy becomes wr#3, pathon #4. jenk stays put.

Perfect. Now let's see if these guys can hang onto the ball & make some big plays.

Good News-I'm glad to see Mora and crew step up and make the call.

Seriously, they could not justify starting White still. Blocking? Not a chance, especially not when Mora has commended Finneran and Roddy White just as much if not more for their blocking abilities as well.

I was so excited to see the news. Dez isn't the player we were hoping for when we signed him. I originally didn't care for the signing but hoped he would pan out. I think bringing Finn back to start and giving Roddy a chance is going to propel this offense forward another notch. We need consistancy more than anything at WR right now, and demoting Dez now will give him a chance to either get his head back in the game or get out of the way.
