Nice thought from Trai Turner

I just find it hard to believe that our o-line depth is so bad we are counting on a converted d-lineman to anchor the left side. That speaks volumes to me.

If Ol' Byron starts at LT - O/U week 6 before Cam is hurt.

that converted d-line has the potential to be a stud at LT.

Eeeehhh, I wouldn't necessarily call that lineup 'scary'.  'Unknown' or 'unproven' would be better words.

 

If Turner looks good and Amini is back to form, the interior line actually looks pretty solid.

 

The tackles?  We'll see, but don't discount the improvement that young players tend to show on an annual basis.

Depends on what you mean by scary

I know this is a Turner thread but I think we can be successful if Cam gets a little bit more comfortable throwing on the run. I think the pocket on the inside will hold with Turner, Kalil and Amini. Cam will have to improvise against teams with strong defensive end/ rushing linebacker play.

I know that isn't traditional quarterback play but Cam is capable of punishing teams with so much more. He may have to run more this season until the line builds some chemistry. I just hope they don't hurt our quarterback with this patchwork line, but I think Cam will adapt and overcome as most champions do.

Chandler could then into a Pro Bowl LT. You never know. Joeckel played QB until college. Other guys have played DT, DE, OG, TE, etc and switched to LT midway thru college and been very successful. Maybe Chandler is built to play LT. He's a massive man with incredible athleticism. The coaches obviously see something there, maybe it'll work.

That or Cam will be eating thru a straw by mid September, who knows.

Don't know.  I could never understand half of what they were singing :unsure:

 

I do know they wrote a song about Saint fans.

Bell RT

 

 

Scary.. and not in a good way.

 

 

Bell LT

Silatolu LG

Kalil C

Turner RG

Chandler RT

 

I think Bell is going to be far better LT than at RT.

 

If Chandler wins the LT I don't see Bell at RT any longer.

Man I really love the potential of our interior OLine.  If Amini gets back to form and Trai turns out to be as good as people expect.  Our run game is going to get a big boost not just up the middle, but all three's ability to pull and block in space is going to be huge.

Yeah Bell is lookin like the opening day starter. This poo that Gettleman, Rivera, etc are shoving down everyone's throats like OH WE BELIEVE IN BYRON WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH HIS PROGRESSION ...lol it's propaganda and them trying to spin stuff their way. If Bell is the starter we are in serious trouble. Sorry. He seems like a good dude and his story is inspiring but he sucks and that's what it always comes down to.

Ok hear me out on this.

 

On running plays we leave a hole at LT. Cam hands the ball off to Deangelo (while Stewart rides the bike) and then Cam fills in as LT. Tolbert blocks to the outside.

 

Shula can't come up with this poo.
