I forgot about his skills in Haley's scheme, looks like even more O Laughing If only the D can get better and running can be consistent.

So...who do you cut?

Pope has been less than impressive but Paulson most likely would clear waivers.

Also this may have been the point they were considering releasing a safety, but now..

no way we keep 4 TE's IMO. Between Paulson and Pope. I'd guess Pope as it seems he's seeing the field less and less, and deservedly so. I'd guess Golden as an option, but no way now with Polamalu hurt.

I think Pope gets cut. He was not in many plays on Sunday.

Tomlin likes Paulson, I think he sticks around.

I would think Pope would be the one to go.

Yepp, and Pope is a Haley guy. Wonder if Tomlin will keep Pope to keep Haley happy. Just all conjecture from my part.

Pope has shown nothing. Neither has Paulsen really.

They may both say on THIS year, but beyond 2012, I think Pope is gone.

Somebody has to go by or after Friday. Id say Pope also. I wasN't thrilled with Saunders in pre season and have always had concerns with effort, he's one of those guys cursed with ability in a way. I'd still let Pope go though , especially if Tomlin is comfortable that Saunders knows as much as or similar to Pope.

I was thinking they could throw Paulson on the practice squad, but I dont know if they would do it (or even could do it at this point).

But yes....Pope would be the first to go IMO. At least Paulson has some upside, even if he hasnt really shown anymore than Pope has.
