At some point, those young guys are going to play. You don't draft 1st & 2nd round guys without thinking they'll be stepping into the starting line-up at some stage. While it's not ideal, the financial situation might force their hand on this one.
Wonder how much KC's Brandon Albert will cost to come play LG....

If we lose the players Ed mentioned on the line, lose Mike Wallace, a TE that may not start the 2013 season and a RB that calls for a rest between plays, how is that improving this offense?
We need help in various positions, but the reality is we failed to make the playoffs because our offense failed at critical points of games we played.
You would think offense would be a priority this off season for the team to get better, but if they aren't careful they could take a step backwards with the offense.
I'm tired of this team struggling to score points, there is no excuse for it when we have the talent except for RB, but if they think what ED said will be the way to go then I would be very worried about the depth of our O-line, the health of Ben. Now I hope Gilbert proves he is well capable of playing LT and hope what they do will improve this offense but uncertainty seems to be at the forefront at this paticular time.
Besides, I dont think spending $100 million on your franchise QB and then putting 2 first round draft picks and 2 second round draft picks in front of him is all that cheap...
btw, the money spent on D is old money. To think spending money on superior offensive linemen won't pay off is silly.

By Ben... see you in 2014. There is no way Ben stays upright with Gilbert at LT.
