    Who Should Start on our OLine?

    After last night, I'm thinking our best bet might be:

    LT - Max
    LG - Pouncey
    C - Legs
    RG - Double D
    RT - Colon

    WTF was going on last night? Adams might just need some time to adjust. But Gilbert was being abused. As was Foster. And there was talk about Beachum being improved which I don't get? And Essex is Essex, the guy that can play 5 positions, but is mediocre at them all.

    I'm worried Ben's gonna get killed again by playoff time. Unless Haley can screen our way to the playoffs.

    Was Philly that good? Were we that bad?

    LT-Max
    LG- Foster
    C-Pouncey
    RG-DeCastro
    RT-Gilbert

    Adams was very slow and weak looking. What would Trent Cole have done to him? That was a second string DE he was facing. I think the others will be OK. I thought DD looked pretty good. Colon may have to go back to RT since he was a top 3 RT a few years back

    I know. Did any of you actually watch the game? Heck, I thought that the Eagles didn't even show up to play in the 1st half. They were that bad. Give the OL time to gel.

    Before this game, I thought our starting OL in Denver should be (if Max is healthy):

    Starks-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert


    After this game, I still think our starting OL in Denver should be (if Max is healthy):

    Starks-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert


    Final Ruthless Mock:
    1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
    2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
    3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
    4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
    5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
    6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
    6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
    7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State

    At about 9:40 in the 2nd quarter, the Eagles had two 3-and-outs with minus 3 offensive yards...while the Steelers had 10 points and 26 offensive plays...

    Then, the majority of the backups came in for both teams...

    Sorry Ruthless. If you aren't going to overreact after one pre season game then I'm going to have to ask you to leave the thread.

    Starks-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert?

    Flippy, dont you think it's a little too soon to be going in this direction? How are you gonna make it through the whole season at this rate? Talk about an over-reaction...........

    I know I'm over-reacting.

    I was most concerned about Gilbert and thinking I wonder if he's really better than Colon at T? And then it was a chain reaction. If we move Colon back to T, we don't have an adequate G in Foster or Legursky. And then it's like dominos and every last lineman falls down.

    The reasonable side of me says Starx - Colo - Pounce - DD - Gilby should be solid by about week 4 in the season and gelling come the playoffs.
