Zod, do I need to buy you a decent web host? What hell do you run this thing on, some $4.95/month plan from HostGator?

is that all you have? an appeal to authority? lame

Yeah, what a dummy, thinking that an NFL GM who's been in the game for years would know better than "analysts", blog owners and forum dwellers.

From Tony Pauline:

Edmund Kugbila

School: Valdosta State

Position: G

Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-America and all-Conference honors the past two years.

Positive: Large, athletic offensive lineman with a huge upside. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and stays square. Jolts defenders with terrific hand punch, turns them from the action, or easily out positions opponents from the play. Moves well on his feet, displays the ability to slide in space and easily steers defenders from the action in pass protection. Flashes power in his lower body and drives defenders off the ball run blocking. Quick out to the second level, can readjust to linebackers, and hit a moving target. Massive and tough to get around.

Negative: Plays back on his heels and does not show a killer instinct. Must improve his blocking balance. A bit haphazard in his movement.

Analysis: Kugbila is a large, athletic lineman with the strength required for a power running offense and movement skills to line up in a zone-blocking scheme. He possesses tremendous upside but needs to improve the details of his position and pick up his all-around intensity. If he pulls it all together and is coached properly, Kugbila possesses starting potential for the next level.

There's no way in hell we can be going forward with Hangartner another season.

Mr. G said that he was going for a mess of Hog Mollies! Sorta of like the Giants. Also thinking of protection for Cam.

Yeah, people get too caught up with NFLN/ESPN rankings. A lot of players many have never heard of going in the 4th here while 'name' players continue to drop.

One of which is Da'Rick Rogers. 246 players picked, and so far not one team has wanted to take Rogers. Looks like he's going to go undrafted.

Has anyone considered that he may be a candidate for RT? He's got the frame for it.

Gettleman said he's a guard. They asked in the press conference if he'll play inside or outside and he was definitive in his answer.

320 or 330, whatever he is now.
