    Tiproast, what are your opinions regarding Marcus Cannon? I liked that guy coming out of TCU, but he fell in the draft due to the lymphoma which was diagnosed at his combine physical, if I recall correctly. You guys are set at tackle with Solder and Vollmer, and Cannon's now cancer free and a solid backup at multiple OL positions for you, I believe. Cannon seems like a bigger, more physical version of Kelvin Beachum to me, and should be an upgrade when compared to the likes of Adams and Gilbert. Would you think a trade with someone like Sanders going to NE and someone like Cannon coming to Pittsburgh could be realistic?

    The Pats o-line is not up to their usual standard this year. Cannon didn't look very good coming off the bench last week and going in at RG - Brady was sacked on a blitz up the middle on his first play (even though Brady pointed out the guy who would be blitzing).

    But anyone can have a bad play or even a bad game - last year Cannon played pretty well, subbing at both guard and tackle. He would likely start for several teams in the league. I don't know that Belichick would give him up very easily - Brady has been making chicken salad out of the mess at WR for almost his whole career. A Sanders-Cannon trade, while it might look even to casual fans like us, probably wouldn't tempt Belichick - especially the last couple of years when capable offensive linemen seem to be hard to find, for almost every team in the league.
    “We'll do the same thing that we always do. We'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis.” - Bill Belichick
