Hangartner was horrible. Not bad....HORRIBLE. Moving him to center is a fuging joke. Hurney is a joke and this coaching staff is clueless. Cam has got to keep himself from getting killed, while somehow trying to learn and improve. Typical.

you guys do realize that it's just a center, right? sure, a pro bowl center, but still, just a center. one player [outside of qb] doesn't define a team's season. step back from the cliff.

Just a center? Are you familiar with the game of American football?

The center does a lot more than just give the ball to the QB and block. The center is the signal caller on the offensive line. When the OL goes to the line of scrimmage the center looks at the defense and calls the blocking assignments for the entire OL. If the defense shifts the center changes the blocking to counter the shift and if the QB changes the play the center has to change the blocking. There is a lot going on along the OL that people sitting in the stadium never see and just anybody can handle it. A guy can be the best blocker around but if he can't recognize what the defense is doing and make the right calls for blocking it doesn't matter how great your QB or RBs are they are going to get killed.

I just heard on the radio that Kalil has a Lis Franc injury and kept playing after it happened in Sunday's game. He must be one of the toughest guys that ever played the game! Everybody that I've ever seen sustain a Lis Franc was taken off the field on a stretcher or at least some kind of cart. Eric Shelton had a Lis Franc injury and was hauled to the dressing room on a cart and then was still in a walking boot when training camp started the next summer. Its one of the worst injuries an athlete can have. With a torn ligament they can replace it but a lis Franc only heals as fast as your body can regrow the connective fibers and that is slow. A surgeon can put screws in to hold things where they are supposed to be but it does not make it heal. with a Lis Franc the long bones in the foot are seperated from the bones that make up the heel and ankle and its ligaments that hold it all together.

Good Luck on your recovery Ryan and I'm hoping you are back next season!

What are you thinking of? Aside from Gross who else is going to anchor our line?

bright side, more snaps under center. less pistol. less trickeration.

It's hard to imagine losing a more important player than Kalil, sans Gross or Cam.

Over/under 4 more wins for the season? Cause it sure isn't looking good.

Can't wait for Geoff to drunkenly hike the ball to the opposing team's defensive line 5 times next week.

Welp, we're in bad territory right now. Hangman was a bad RG and will probably be a worse C. Amini might struggle more without the help if being sandwiched between two pro bowlers. The RG spot will now be anchored by a scrub, and with Pollock not even being in consideration for a starting spot now, one has to wonder why we signed him in the first place.
