Why? This is probably the best solution we could of come up with based on what we have seen


You will see in a few days trust me. Its never good to mix up a oline like this and they have created two problems trying to fix one.

Think of it this way:

OT is now another colossal need on an already long offseason list assuming the switch is permanent.

If it ISN'T permanent, then it'll be a nice little stunt in the development of a good RT prospect.

Lose/lose. Sweet.

Or, you can.look at it this way, putting the best guys on the field.

Guess you prefer your.hyperbull version.

Bell is likely an upgrade over Piggy at RT.

If Gary plays RT like he did against the Giants....he isn't a downgrade from Bell at RT.

More worried about how well Piggy can still play C

Allright #65 at RT. Cowboys DL and LBers are licking their chops. He got benched last game right after allowing a sack. He tends to get caught backpedaling and the speed guys run right by him.


That was at G....he played a dang good full game at RT against a better front than Dallas has.

No one ran by him at RT

Williams has better mobility than Bell. Which can help him more at T than G. Bell is bigger, which can help him at G. It looks good on paper. And the cowpatty's are a perfect fit cuz they are a mess right now themselves.

If Williams can stay competitive. We may be alright. Providing hangman can be servicable at C. I have more hope than faith in hangman. But he is still around, so he has that going for him.

Why not just insert Williams in at RG?
I can already see a messed up Oline Sunday. Damn Rivera

Do you remember the last time Garry Williams played RG? It was apocalyptic.

His skillset fits tackle better than guard, he's not a superstar at either place but he'll be better there (we hope). He can't be any worse than he was at guard. Meanwhile if you watch Bell play he looks like he should be able to handle guard.

There is potential for our line to be better this way than with Williams at guard...but it's unlikely it will be worse.

I probably did. If our OLine sucks this week my being awake and posting at 3am will take the credit. I will be punished severely.

I suggested this earlier in the season when it was clear Hangartner was struggling early on, to move Bell to guard that is... Love this move. BUT, I really would prefer to make Campbell the starter at tackle over Williams.
