    ... Just another reason to name Hartwig the starter early.... Give Mahan some time at the guard position during camp with the backups.

    the way the article reads isn't comforting.

    nothing in regards to the o-line is comforting. they could always have colon play LG until kemo is back, but that would mean mahan would still be on the bench and a player of mahan's caliber should never be on the bench

    to think that colon might be a back up is sickening. he was one of the better o-lineman last year and he was playing out of position. no way starks doesnt start JUST because of his contract. its really a bunch of crap

    Mahan played guard on the line that blocked for Cadillac Williams the year he won rookie of the year. Could just be that he is totally out of position at center and he might actually be a decent guard.

    I would vote for Colon at LG, allowing Max to start at RT again. Then when Kemo comes back, let him compete with Simmons at RG (where a man of Kemo's girth would be a better fit than at LG), and hopefully he wins this time (Zeirlein said he was close last year).

    I think Smith-Colon-Hartwig-Kemoeatu-Starks is your best combination of 5 (I like having 3 nasty guys like that in the interior), while still having some decent experience among your back-up options of Essex-Mahan-Stapleton-Simmons-Hills.

    Believe it or not, by this point, I was expecting, "fight to bend over in front of Ben" as the title.

    Uhhh... you and SMG have fun...

    Seriously, I still can't believe I haven't made it up there. I've even got a place to stay (good friend moved up there last year).
