    Holy shit, Mr. D, what the hell is so difficult to understand about Webb being an uncoachable, lazy slackass whose basic reliability, focus, and motivation is highly questionable to begin with....much less possibly coming in cold from the bench???

    Can you understand why his lack of discipline and preparedness might seriously compromise his ability to even be a "backup"? Don't you get that???

    Excellent post. This should be a sticky regarding Bushrod vs. Webb.

    There's got to be a reason the coaches are still hanging onto Scott. Maybe it's Emery's hubris because he brought him in, or maybe because they think he's the best swing tackle we have on the roster. I've seen Britton play OT, and I'd rather drag Webb's dead ass off the bench before I reached for Britton.

    I think they are waiting to see just where Scott's drained knee is. If it's okay, we will probably enter the season with Scott and either Britton or Webb, depending on how Webb responds to this demotion to swing tackle. Hell, we moved on quickly from Carimi, and he was a much higher cost/ draft pick to lose. It costs us nothing to cut or keep Webb, so they don't even have to consider financial ramifications.

    Scott is marginal even as a backup. I'm just hoping none of our tackles go down to injury this year or we're screwed. As bad as Webb is, I'd almost rather see him go in instead of Scott. Either way though, we're screwed. When you think about it, it's pretty scary that we may have a green rookie from the 5th round as our starting tackle this year - that speaks to how horrific our backup talent is.

    No, it speaks to how pathetic Webb's dedication and discipline is that, as a 4th year starter handed the RT job, he promptly lost it to a 5th round rookie who simply cared more.

    I agree with you. Actually, the best situation would have been to have had a reasonably decent RT in place for this year (not Webb or Scott), so that the 5th rounder could be the backup his first year. He could have learned his craft before being pushed into starting as a rookie. Hey, I do like Mills. But he's definitely a "work in progress" and not really a best-case solution for a team to push into being a starter.

    I understand that Emery/Trestman inherited a mess on the OL, and that it is a multi-year project to fix all 8 positions (starters and backups). But it's a shame it was left in such bad shape. Webb/Scott/Britton are all pretty poor players IMHO. Yes, Scott too. So I guess we're forced to throw the 5th round rookie into the fire game-1 of the season and just "hope something good happens" and he can minimize the rookie learning curve. Keep in mind this isn't a 1st round pick like Long who has freakishly good physical talent.

    Scott's hurdle is how healthy his knee is, but yeah, I see your point and he's been floating around the league for a reason, and why he's making league minimum.

    I think if Scott's knee is fine you will see him starting the actual season instead of a 5th round rookie next to another rookie in Long.

    That is exactly what I believe too.

    If you read Sox's analysis on the Mills Thread, you'll see he's a pretty good talent too. A solid find in the 5th round from a lesser known school. Our two right sided rooks are definitely going to make mistakes and have growing pains but it is refreshing to have two promising talents who are dedicated to working hard and are learning from a true OL guru with the record to prove it.
