    Last week someone mentioned that Ebon was looking like a near lock to make the team until he had to spend time playing LT, which he failed miserably at...now no one is quite sure where the team has him at, and a lot depends on who they keep. Do they keep Scott and Webb and Brown, or do they keep Scott or Webb, Brown and Ebon...not sure anyone has a real good idea on that right now, at least none that i've read or heard.

    It goes to show you just how bad our OL was last year. Louis was arguably our best OL last year. He can't even make the roster at Miami. No wonder we have 4 new starting OL.

    I agree with the previous poster too, that Emery really seems to know talent. It's beautiful to watch our OL work this pre-season. Night and day better than anything I've seen here in Chicago in years.

    To come back from ACL tear like Lance this quick would have been amazing and then get back to O-line ready would have been a miracle. That's why Emery let him go there's just no way anyone would have the confidence with his body size and to push another 300lb+ man off a line of scrimmage. I know Peterson did it but that guy is a freak of nature. Most normal people need a good year to fully recover ask Rose that's just the way it is, again unless you're a freak.

    Indeed. It's quite an achievement for a 320 lb athlete to rebound from major knee surgery in above average time. The fact that he's out there playing now is satisfying enough for his recovery. He was an at least average RG last year, and showed the ability to hang at RT in an emergency the season before. I'm sure some team will take a shot on him.

    I seem to recall calling this...not that I'm particularly happy about it. Perhaps he'll be healthy by midseason for an injury pickup?

    Sucks for him, horrible way to go out like he did... he was a baller... I was really hoping he would rebound. He couldn't play there, he can't play here. Move on. Emery looks smart, yet again.

    Still wonder if he'd look a bit better under our better OL scheme. Emery didn't have that before. & of course if he's over the injury.

    Depth from a known source is never a bad thing if it's the best option out there at a cheap cost.
