    The season may start like this:

    LT: Gilbert
    LG: Foster
    C: Pouncey
    RG: DeCastro
    RT: Colon

    I think it ends like this:

    LT: Adams
    LG: Foster
    C: Pouncey
    RG: DeCastro
    RT: Gilbert

    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.

    That was EXACTLY the quote- and it's correct- at the time LT was either Gilbert or Jon Scott- take your pick.

    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.

    true

    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

    Well, with the injury theory inserted, we should draft another Center because Pouncey is always getting hurt every year & we should probably think about releasing him after his next one.....


    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.

    Maybe Gilbert will move to OG instead?

    Regardless of who plays OT or OG, it won't be Willie Colon losing his starting position.
