A career LT whose skills had regressed gradually over the last few years and fallen off a cliff in 2020. So, he instead signs with a contender to play a new position. RT isn't simply different in terms of playing as a mirror image, using your opposite hands and legs, the strong side tackle role has different skillsets, responsibilities, and duties. The two are not interchangeable.

    So, while we all knew it was a mistake for Harbaugh to sign on for that, AV must bear the same responsibility. FWIW I'm certain that most of us were happy from a competitive standpoint that AV signed there. Sad that we knew he'd be embarasing himself, but not fearing a stronger Ravens team because of AV.

    Exactly, and if AV is truly embarrassed he can always retire and admit he doesn’t have it anymore.

    Maybe he is a double agent trying to get Lamar killed.. lol.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    He's taking a beating on twitter... he was shaky at LT and now trying to learn how to play RT. There's a gif out there that was embarrassing how bad he whiffed on Crosby. Sure hope Okorafor doesn't end up a twitter highlight against Crosby;

    He's got a guaranteed $8M this season. No way he gives that up.

    yeah.. we may want to slow down on laughing at AV until after the Raiders game.

    Looks like AV will be in prime time again vs KC. If this continues he may ride the pine this year or move to LT. Isn’t there LT out this week?

    yes, Ronnie Stanley is going to be out as his previous ankle injury is still bothering him.

    Lamar is definitely going to be running for his life against KC.
    Only a true coward puts someone on ignore on a message board.
