Since the Bills brought Merriman back & Anderson & Kelsay went down they have had to put Moore & Merriman in the line up to get more snaps & last week it showed the 2 have made a difference .
I thought Merriman was brought back as an insurance policy or a player to fill the void until Anderson came back & then would be cut , but so far i think he is playing better than Anderson was , If he continues this week to get better with increased reps i think the 2 should stay where they are .
Kelsay may get some reps this week but i would bring him in slow if for nothing else to see if the new tandem continues to do better than the others did & if so the needed boost in our D to get to the playoffs may be welcome not to say needed .
Then there is the deal when Anderson does come back who will be let go if that is something that will need to be done ? If these guys are doing better than the starters were who do you keep who do you sit ??
What do you all think ??
I did like what I have seen from Moore in particular, and Merriman. Although they looked their best in this past ONE game, against a poor offensive line.
I think Kelsay will get plenty of playing time when healthy, as he plays the run well and can push the pocket (but usually not get sacks). I am not a big Anderson fan personally, and wasn't a big fan of the signing, but due to his money I expect him to be on the active roster when healthy. I suppose it's a good problem to have, but I would guess either Moore or Merriman is scratched once everyone is healthy.
I don't think they would have to cut anyone, but if they did I'm thinking Justin Rodgers would be a good target. I'd much rather see Brooks in there than him.

I have not missed a Bills game since 1994 Fridge. So why don't you enlighten me on what Alex Carrington has done other than block two FG's to warrant being a member of the Buffalo Bills, smart guy?
Actually I think Carrington has looked decent during the very few snaps he actually gets. You do realize he is playing as a reserve DT now, not DE (or LB)? Anther poor guy along with Kelsay, Moats, Spencer Johnson, and others who has been forced to play all over the place in this train wreck of a defense over the last 3 years.
