Gross

Unless we get lucky and draft a replacemnet or pick one up in FA, I see him being here another 1-2 seasons. We have no one on the roster to replace him what so ever. Hell we need a RG and RT still.

not without a solid option to rely on.

you don't cut unless you KNOW you've got someone at least as good or better lined up.

and no...that's not easy to do.

might be too expensive but sometimes you pay too much when you have no other options... i'd rather overpay our LT than pretty much any other position... It's not worth it to save a little $ and have a turnstile at LT. That doesn't help the team.

I'd restructure Gross. It's not easy to find a solid LT. Does anyone think Campbell could be our future LT?

I very seriously doubt it. I thought he looked promising in preseason, but if he had the ability, he'd be on the field somewhere given our current OL issues.

Gross has given up some bad plays, but Hangman and Wiliams have been simply awful.

Gross, Hangman, and whoever is at RG have all sucked this season. I can see a scenario of upgrading the LT spot and moving Gross to RT. But with Bell doing a pretty good job, I can also see them cutting ties with him.

No way, unless you want Cam to go on IR. we have no one behind him.

When I said losing the Eagles game would be huge for the franchise, I meant it. Time will tell but I truly believe both teams new regimes will GREATLY covet Luke Joeckel. Gross is such a liability it's not even remotely funny. I was reamed for wanting to sacrifice a meaningless win over the Eagles for 10-15 years of rock solid protection for our franchise QB (that we WON'T find anywhere else).

Like I said time will tell, we would be behind the Eagles if the draft were today but their remaining opponents have three more wins than our remaining opponents so we still have a chance if we finish with the same record (I believe we win at least one more as well). If not, someone please explain HOW we are going to get rid of Gross and find a legit, bonafide blue chip replacement???

Well Rivera has stated that Campbell is strictly an OT. With Gross and Bell firmly penciled into both spots it's hard to imagine Campbell getting any work in.
