    No risk except, perhaps, to the pride of those who made the decision to get rid of him.

    I mean, if that OT was significantly better than what you had on your roster, why is he still on the street at this point?

    On the other hand, drafting a premium LT in the first round is a different proposition altogether...
    I don't TRUST that our FO will draft an OT in the first... seems like every year we are scratching our heads at Colbert saying they believe in the guys they have on the OL.

    We haven't selected high enough to draft a premium left tackle in the first round. Top-rated centers or guards like Pouncey and DeCastro can fall into the mid-to-late first, but top-notch left tackles don't. We may be drafting high enough this year to get one, though.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

    That's because they are bending over backwards for our franchise QB who says his linemen are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    How is that for the anti-Crash approach.

    I agree. I think we will just do "just good enough" to ensure we are out of reach of a LT that could actually solidify that part of the OL. Maddeningly frustrating.
