    Do we sign a new O Lineman This week?

    With some of the injuries to the O line last night. I think Mike Adams will be good but he is not ready yet. Legursky played horrible at right guard in my opinion. With the exception of one false start from Willie Colon, I thought he played very well.

    Colon had two or three false starts, however he blocked well most of the night. The left side of the OL wasn't the problem.

    You mean FALSE STARTS??
    But I agree with ur assessment. All I kept thinking was call Flozell Adams!!

    What happened with Ramon Foster?? I heard nothing on him

    Found it, he left the game with an eye injury. Phewww!!

    I really think Foster will do well with DeCastro out but Legursky is a CENTER (period). a backup Center that is.
    I don't think Gilbert is out long term either, but we need depth. Gotta be someone out there over Legursky.

    I think they need to start dressing 8 OL. They had to play the entire 2nd half with only 5 lineman. Not sure where you get the extra body from, but as injury-prone as our oline seems to be, they need to dress an extra player.

    I agree. Too many OL right now with dings that may not finish a game. I think dressing 7 is a real risk.

    I know folks don't want to hear it, but they may sign Trai Essex this week.


    If Roquan Smith falls to late teens, trade 1.28 & 2.60 to SEA for 1.18 & 4.120:

    1.18 LB Roquan Smith
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
    7.246 OT Brett Toth

    If not:

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch
    2.60 C/G Billy Price
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 RB Ito Smith
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    It's the logical move. He knows the offense and can play all 5 positions. Hopefully Foster and Gilbert will be able to return next week, but even if they do return, Essex makes sense.

    Worse than that -- imagine what would have happened if another lineman went down last night. Pope?
