    Stapleton

    Imo, the line looked better with him in for Simmons. Not great, but better.

    What say the rest of you?

    I agree. But was that also when Ben started calling his own plays?

    While I agree that Stapleton looked decent, IMO they need to move Colon to RG and put Starks in at RT.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Re: Stapleton

    Colon has not practiced enough at RG to move there immediately.

    Stapleton is mobile and smart. Unfortunately, he seems to fall down for no apparent reason occassionally. He may have learned this from Simmons.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I think this is the way to go. Not this week, though, with the short Monday-to-Sunday turnover. I would use Stapleton vs. the Jags then move Colon over and put Max in at RT during the bye week.

    Re: Stapleton

    I wouldn't be shocked if they put Trai in there...was he suited last night? Only reason being he has more game experience.
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    IF that move is to happen, it will probably be as you say.

    Why not? At 6'3" 315, his build seems to be better suited to play guard (Simmons, by the way, has those exact same measurables). He is more of a nasty brawler type that will punch somebody in the mouth in a tight scrum than a guy who is expected to be able to handle speed rushers in space out on a island by himself. I want my interior lineman to be nasty muthas, and Kemo and Colon would be two nasty muthas in there. At this point, you need to have your best 5 guys out there...so it is time to take advantage of that $7 insurance policy that Colbert bought in the offseason. It's either that or starting a guy at guard who was a rookie free agent from Rutgers initially brought in a year ago to compete at center. Give Stapleton one week in Jacksonville, then make the switch during the bye.
