It's obvious that this season is a wash. After our 8th loss, the Playoffs are out of the question statistically. There are HUGE problems on both sides of the ball, so rather than wax about who needs to be cut, we should talk about who has played well, who has played with passion and intelligence, and who hasn't completely disappointed Raider Nation this year. Obviously, this is a cursory list compared to a full 53-man roster, but I think these players have at least shown they deserve to be on the field.

Offense
Marcel Reese
Stefan Wisniewski
Brandon Myers
Jared Veldheer
Rod Streeter
Juron Criner
Denarius Moore

Defense
Matt Shaughnessy
Lamarr Houston
