    More thinking out loud than anything else. This is a question that many of us were asking. With his build and skill set, he is arguably more suited to LT.

    However, Kromer is on record as putting a high value on the interior. You can make an argument either way, and further, you can make the argument that even if he stays at G, that may not be where he ends up.

    He may still not be a G for life.

    What do you guys think?

    I'm especially looking forward to Little Bear responding. Mostly because I like looking at his avatar...

    Maybe when Bushrod goes but they way he's played so far it probably makes no sense. As a rookie he handled some of the best DTs around and made a Pro Bowl as a rookie. Why mess with success right. What in lb's avatar? Guess I need to pay more attention huh?

    BIH, you are a funny SOB, & I mean that in a good way. But back to the original question. I think down the road he could end up at OT but for now I see him as a really good OG with the chance to be a dominate OG. If we have a rash of injuries at OT I could see him getting moved there out of need but sticking there because he rocks the house.

    The great thing about Long is you can play him anywhere and he's going to dominate. He's going to be career Bear because it's always good idea to keep a HoF player in the same uniform especially when they are already a Bear player.

    I think so too. He was a home run.

    Trestmans OC likes his best athletes at G, so I doubt he moves Long out of that position.

    If Kromer's system emphasizes the guards then it doesn't make sense to move him. He was also a boon to Mills as well. Only move Long to LT if your going to get another athletic road grater at guard.
