Long can flat out dominate guys physically now so I can't wait to see how much better he can be once he learns the game. He's got all of the athleticism he needs to deal with stunts and blitzes he just needs to learn to recognize them. His highlight week for me should come when we play "the kittys". I can't wait to see him tangling with Suh. That bad boy is gonna have his hands full with Long if he tries to pull some of his usual crap. This I'm looking forward to. Elsewhere around the OL horn I watched Boggs with some interest and although he's 25lbs lighter than Garza seemed to handle OC just about as well. Of course that's not saying all that much but he's still a rookie so maybe he's the guy Kromer can work some of his magic with. I wouldn't exactly call Brown a disappointment but I thought Long outplayed him and should leap frog him for the starting RG spot over these next two weeks. Britton seemed OK at RT or let's just say I didn't notice any badly blown assignments so it would appear that he's still pretty high in the mix. The rest were poor to downright shitty. Webb, as usual, looked like he was just going through the motions. I saw no hustle out of him at all, no power in the run game, and he still sets up way too deep in pass protection and gives up his inside to the double move. He doesn't fire out and jolt his man with his hands and then retreat. He just back peddles halfway to the QB and set up. If he misses the block or fails to get his hands on his guy that guy is only a step or two from a sack. Thank God we signed Bushrod. As usual Webb is getting worse again before he gets better. I'm really starting to believe his only hope of sticking is as a swing OT. EWill looked pretty pathetic. What's sad is that we really couldn't tell just how bad some of these guys were until we found ones who were far better. The other two guys who finished at RG (Dennis) and RT (Lindeman) were both worthless. I've already started a list of "first to go" and both are on it along with TE Gabe Miller. San Diego's DL isn't all that great but is was a good game to get Long and Mills some extended playing time with both the 1st and 2nd string and I'd give both pretty high passing grades. If they can keep advancing they could very well be the right side of the line for the next decade.
