    I agree, Grizz. Seems like Britton esp has been taking a fair amount of 1st reps at both T spots and Webb hasn't been out hurt. I'm sure JW makes the team but his starting RT job may not be a sure thing as of now. Not good for a young guy in his FA year looking for a new contract. Maybe that reality-check is why he's going dark on Twitter lol.

    IDK. I personally have been rooting for him since he started doing better last year, not as a "Hahaha, proved you guys wrong" kinda way, but I'm a fan of the underdog (Seriously, my favorite basketball team is the Raptors, not the Bulls) with sports, and just wanted to see HIM prove the league wrong. Hopefully the total sum of his offenses don't matter much, and he still plays well.

    I just want a copetent OL this year, I don't care who the starters are as long as that happens....kinda like how Cosby talked about just wanting a healthy normal child, I just don't want some F'd up OL anymore.

    I am rooting for him to get cut and later picked up by the packers or Vikings.

    Enough about Webb head. I'm curious as to how Mills is and if Britton can steal a spot.

    If Mills flat out earns the RT spot, and does better than Webb did @ RT last year, I will never question Emery again, lol. Not saying he's a bad pick, just saying, if he got 2 rookies starting on this line and they're good, he did in one offseason what Angelo never did (pick a really good lineman).

    IMHO as of now
    Bushrod
    Long
    Garza
    Slauson
    Webb
    Brown
    Mills (would get poached off the PS)
    Britton
    Boggs (if keeping 9)

    Release Scott and EWill, Lonergan possibly to the PS

    I'd temper the enthusiasm for Mills realistically. Not saying he wasn't a promising pick but most likely he's a reserve and generally inactive this year barring injury need.

    Not trying be funny, but I'd bet the Pack would pick Webb up in a heartbeat if we released him (I doubt we will, demote maybe but not cut). Right now, Green Bay has two not good options left for LT--a failed Marshall Newhouse or a 4th round rookie to protect Rodgers blind side. And in a pass heavy offense no less. Laugh if you will, but Webb would be a gift to them.
