I guess we will agree to disagree. We are diminishing Kyle's value by leaving him on the right side.
And the easy road isn't always the best path.
He and Mills make a great team, and work well together. Unless Mills can play the left side as well, I think it would be like cutting off your nose to spite your face
In this case, it would be.
Again, why teach two new positions (or three with the move of Slauson) to fill one void?
Again, they have played these positions already, there is nothing to teach.
That's an insanely hilarious speculation.
O line is like the least of our worries at this point. So all this talk of moving guys is more about grab ass so I'll join this convo. Make Kyle a center Brown can come back to right guard QB sneaks of 1 yard or less are guaranteed next year. Also, Kyle's shotgun snaps travel 100mph break Cutler's fingers.
I like the way you think, but don't grab my ....
There's no charge for that one.
I've read where some believe Long could be our LT of the future if we ever part ways with Bushrod down the road. If, Long has the physical gifts to ultimately play LT, then we'd be fools to keep him as a guard forever.
I've seen that also. He is certainly size and he plays aggressively. One article said that Kromer likes big inside blockers, so he may keep him inside. We will see.
The nice thing is that with Kromer here, we'll always have a decent OL. I'm not going to lose any sleep over who-plays-where. The guy is amazing with OL.
Kyle can play pretty much anywhere you want him he is a gifted athlete with usable durable thickness. I believe that haven't even scratched the surface with him hell, I think they should use as LT/TE could you imagine the secondary trying to tackle him.
I agree JABF. The one player that I can't figure out is Britton. He gets quite a bit of play time as an eligible reciever. He has a rather un-impressive past after his first rookie season. Kromer must have a preference to use him over Rosario or the other available linemen.
The easiest move would be to move Boggs to center. That way, even if they do draft a center, we aren't experiencing the rookie learning curve week 1.
Slauson is working out at LG. He might want to stay there from a professional money standpoint.
I agree with that
I think that Long is more than capable of moving to LG or LT if needed.
Garza was a guard before he moved to center.
Brown was pushing Long for a spot and could be our next guy to step up.
The best situation would be if we could get a starting Quality Center (Draft or FA) and let the line remain the way it is, just replace Garza (assuming he is not back next year). But if we have to shuffle the deck, I feel a whole lot better about it than I have at any point since 2005.
To be honest I think with Boggs on the roster he is our C of the future. Remember Kromer coached a bunch of low round draft picks in NO and made a pretty good OL out of it.
If we can get a true stud, road grater G that can handle Suh (would have to be a really good player), then I'd like to see Long moved to LT at some point. That is where the blue-chippers play because that is where they are needed. If in Kromers scheme he wants his best players inside, then so be it, but traditionally, I think your best guy is the LT.
Taylor Boggs has a lot of drive, but he is not very big. Garza is not particularly big and comes from a smaller school, so there is hope for Boggs.
I would rather have a bigger guy in the middle.
