    Garza doesn't have what we need physically, but he knows all of the calls and has great rapport with Cutler. He isn't going anywhere this year unless he gets hurt. Hopefully next year we take someone in round 3-4 to be his replacement, and then we will have a tremendously better line than we had 2 years prior.

    Jbunch is dead on as to why Garza is still here and it's something I was saying before the draft, although you don't draft a center that early, if wild speculation is accurate though the C is going to be Slauson next year.

    I would think either injury or dramatic slide in ability we would see Slaussen/Brown.

    Not seen any pre-season games this year, but is Slauson getting any reps @ C? and if so how has he been doing?
    I would put him against either the Raiders tonight or Cleveland next week for at least a half quarter, possibly the 3rd.

    I know it may sound rediculous to suggest it, especially having not seen any games so far, but if they guy has any potential...

    Hub was just on the score, said he thinks the final 8 will be Bushrod, Slauson, Garza, Long, Mills w/the backups being Brown, Scott, Webb. Said that Scott and Webb can both play LT, and Ebon was unable to...said it's a shame also b/c Britton while playing G and RT was having a great camp, but when he was forced to play LT he faded. He also said he would not be suprised if Brown is not starting by week 4 or 5...hinting that Slauson or Garza will be the ones replaced...either Brown will outplay Slauson, or Slauson will outplay Garza and Brown will take LG over. I thought it would take a year to have Brown/Long as starting G's, but it might well happen faster then that. This OL just got a youth overhaul in 2 years...something JA couldn't do in 8.

    This is something else I don't agree with. If Britton was having a great cap at G and RT, and you already have a BU for LT, then why not keep him? I mean keep a good player. I know versatility is important, but he can already play two positions. Does he really needto play three in order to be condifered versatile if he is good at two other positions? Garza can only play C and G. No T. Why the hell are we keeping him? Bushrod has only played T. Seems like we should get rid of him too. Any good idea needs to have its limits. You keep good players. Only when someone else is better do you get rid of him. If Brown, Scott and Webb can play better than Britton, great. If Britton can play one of his two positions better than them and also has a second position as a bonus, then I think it is a bad idea. However, I don't know how the coaches have them graded out.

    I'm not sure I'd keep both Webb and Scott. Both are players that have been around a while and don't seem to have a very high ceiling. Webb was thought to have a high ceiling, but I think they were viewing the ceiling out of the wrong end of the binoculars. Keeping two guys that have been around nd probably won't get any better as opposed to Britton. IDK...

    Thanks for the update, Ric. News has gone dark since camp ended.

    I do agree that it is likely Webb makes the final roster as a reserve/swing T. I don't see Scott as any better than Webb and he's injured while JW is healthy (physically anyway....mentally I'm not so sure). But I'd sure rather keep Britton than BOTH of them. EB can play every position except possibly LT. He certainly can back up RT and both G spots and he's young enough to have some upside now that he's healthy again.

    Why does this regime love Scott so much???

    BiH, starters don't have to be versatile, backups do. Although I agree I would love to see them keep Britton, but I assume they'll try and get him on the PS for a year.
