New roster cut down plan

With roster cut downs coming up, it reminds me of how I hate the current way the NFL does it. Seems silly to me to have a cut down to 75 players on the August 27th then four days later have to cut it down again to 53. Why not just have one cut down to 53 on the 31st?

I actually have a better idea of how to handle the cutdowns. I think it would bring more suspense and excitement for the diehard fans who are constantly checking online, Twitter, CSR, etc on those cutdown days to see who is making the final roster. My plan is as follows...

- Traning camp- 90 players allowed in camp

- After preseason game 1- Cutdown to 80 players

- After preseason game 2- Cutdown to 75 players

- After preseason game 3- Cutdown to 70 players

- After final preason game- Cutdown to final 53

After weeks of training camp and the first preseason game. I am sure the coaching staff would have a pretty good idea of which 10 players should be cut first.Then in following weeks the coaches can concentrate more on those bubble players who need more looks and reps to determine if they should survive another week. They will be able to get more reps because of the first cutdown that they normally would not have had. It might give someone an opportuniy to impress the coaches who may normally may have gone unnoticed.

Finally, I also think the rule that only 46 players are eligible for active game day rosters needs to be updated. Why should coaches and GMs stress over the roster and depth charts for weeks only to have to "cut down" more players for gameday to get under the 46 limit? Seems to me that if every team can have 53 players on the roster, all 53 should have an opportunity to play. If we have an injured player, its easy to declare him inactive. But wouldn't it be easier to just have 53 players and the coaches play whoever gives us the best opportunity to win? Seems simple to me

Let me know what you think.
