    Of course all of the 1s are out but it is nice to see that Slauson is the second option.

    Good to see. We were talking about just that in another thread. I hope he can eventually be Garza's successor next year. A Bushrod, Long, Slaussen, Brown, and Britton line doesn't sound half bad right about now.

    So I heard a lot of reports about this, they said they'll have the starting 5, then carry 2 more guys, a swing interior OL and swing OT on the game day roster, then they'll carry one more on the roster. This means they need to have someone that can play C should Garza go down, preferably it would be the swing G/C but most likely it would be Slauson

    Garza's been quickly declining in skill, and while the thought of a new center is nice, I don't know if Slauson even played it in college. I know for sure he didn't get much, if any reps with the Jets, seeing as Mangold has owned that spot since being drafted.

    I'm not sure I like that. I'm happy about Garza being oved out (assuming he is still marginal), but then that meansthe left side is nat as solid as we thought. The right side is still an issue and now we have someone learning at the C position. So we have a solid LT and that's it now?

    Well, at least Kromer isn't standing on the hilltop screaming about how he likes out OL. I kinda miss that about Tice. He never really let reality get in his way.

    Yep, and that's all it is right now. When you carry 7 active on game day versatility becomes a huge factor. We can't activate a backup OC so one of the OGs has to be able to fill that spot if Garza gets hurt. That's what kept Spencer around last year and with him gone the only other OC prospect who'll be playing on game days is Slauson. This is just to get him some practice reps and game reps there now before the season begins. Garza will still be starting when the season starts.
