All of this angst about the line is really overblown IMO. Last year we were decimated with injuries at the guard position and in the end the line did decently. The only guy we are replacing is Gross and that takes 1 guy to show up whether he is on the team already or we intend to pick him up when cuts are made. Truth is we should actually be better at both guard positions and even if Bell is back at right tackle he wasn't exactly the disaster people make him out to be. He wasn't good but he wasn't awful.
We will pick up at least 1 more LT and we have a bunch of guys who will be competing for the job. Seems to me that our line will be as good or better at 4 positions and as for LT, I suspect Gettleman has a plan. As much as he values hog mollies I just don't see him ignoring the LT position. It is only May so there is still plenty of time to pick someone up.
Gross and Wharton played outstanding, and graded out in the top 5 (profootball focus) at their respective positions, the left side of the line is the most important, so we basically had 3 pro bowl calibur people going from Center to LG to LT, the right side was decimated with injuries but with such a good left side that was easily compensated. All that being said Cam still was sacked, hit, hurried, or rushed more than any other QB in the league. So now we lose 2 of those top 5 position players and essentially replace them with Bell....who's has struggled on the right side already, and more question marks, etc.
