i believe the quote was. " right now, he's our starting LT"
what happens if he cant handle it. he's only played a handful of games at LT, even in college
The season may start like this:
I think it ends like this:
We have finally given #7 some protection!!! Thank goodness, the last five years have been hell watching him run for his life just about every time he dropped back to pass!!!
This is the future:
Adams - DeCastro - Pouncey - Colon - Gilbert
How quickly we get there remains to be seen.
I imagine preseason will force Adams to play ALOT. He'll be on the field til the end of every preseason game at LT. He may not start the games at LT, but he will finish them all there.
Then we'll see.
For the 'future OL' predictions- as much as you don't like him, there is NO WAY Colon doesn't get on the field. Swing OT? Rubbish. They didn't pay him well to watch. If he's not one of the starting OT's, he's a starting OG.
but they paid him before his recent season ending injury
1st one, bad luck
2nd in a row...maybe a trend
im sure there an injury settle clause or something like that. he gets banged up again...he's gone IMO
I'm trying to find an actual quote from a coach that says anything about colon actually moving to guard. I can find a lot on here by members and I vagually recall Colbert maybe saying that he could but after that I'm drawing a blank
Colon isn't injury prone. Injury prone is getting the same injury, over & over- degenerative knee injuries, torn hamstrings.
Colon is unlucky- 2 freakish, seperate injuries.
