Nate Chandler Switching Sides

So you went looking again? Nice, glad you took the time out to find a similiar thread. Oddly I put Chandler in too. Must have misspelled it.

Absolutely amazes me that this forum's member are so worried about someone reposting a topic. It was only the second time I have ever used the search. But thanks to you it will be the LAST.

I really don't give a poo if I have reposted a similiar topic or not. I was being semi-concerned that I was but you have made it certain I don't do it again. I didn't find it, you did. So for now on, I'll post because no matter what someone is going to make a comment about reposting or point out, as you did, that it has been posted before.

Eventually it would be nice to see him become a solid LT who one day could replace Gross.

Wasn't trying to be mean about it. Just wanted to let you know. In case you wanted to check out any of the discussion in the previous thread.

Well I think it had alot to do with what they saw when he was on the practice squad. 

 

What a story this would be if we ended up with a replacement on the roster for Gross and didn't have to waste a top pick to get him. 

 

The tough part is.  No way we are going to be able to hide him on the P.S. (if he still eligible)  Plus he wouldn't clear waivers.  So we are pretty much stuck with him on the roster though he is probably still raw.

 

But as ThunderKat notes he knows Dline moves so that is an advantage.

I disagree, Dave.  I think he will spend the year on the PS learning the LT position.  Currently, he is a project/hypothetical OT and a raw DT who would not have made the roster as a DT.

 

I am not sure about his eligibilty-I think he was on the roster for 9 games?

 

His biggest advantage, in my limited opinion, is the fact that he played TE, not DT.  He may have gone against the DEs and OLBs in practice on scout teams, but he was a DT.  If anything, his DL experience may be limited to a few hand moves--

 

about your second sentence--that would be great, even if he never becomes more than depth.  Chandler is an athlete with size and strength.  Gross will be a great teacher and he has been shadowing Gross.  He is a longshot, but we have no depth behind Gross anyway.  I like the move.

While that would be a great idea.  He'll never make it to the practice squad.  We have to waive him before we can shuttle him to the Practice Squad.  Some team will want him, they will waste a roster spot to take him from us.   Think about it.  He played DT last year after being an UDFA and now we are move him to Tackle? Most teams know that is not a common move.  That to me is screaming GEM. I am sure other teams are watching. WE cut him and try and put him on the practice squad.  He'll never make it.

 

I agree he is a work in progress.  He'll be apart of your 53 man roster.

He also played OL in college as well.

You guys get way too worked up over reposts. I check this site a couple times a day or week depending on life. I miss more than I see and I suspect it's the same for many people.

In general I agree, but the only poster to bring it up was me, and I was just trying to add info for the folks who don't check everyday because I remember the topic coming up in May.

That said let's get back to the actual discussion.

Didn't seemed like Xerxes was trying to be an @ss, so don't see why you're being offensive at him.

Jesus OP you have to be the most defensive poster I've ever seen on here...and that's saying a LOT. He pointed out that this topic was posted before, but it's obvious he went out of his way to put it as politely as he possibly could have. I can't imagine what would have happened if someone less courteous had called you out for your repost in the way you typically see Huddlers do it. Not to mention not being able to take the slightest hint of criticism for heaping an exorbitant amount of praise on our o-line and safeties in the other thread you started.

How about in the future you just learn how to spell our players' names right in the search bar so you can avoid the 50 point spike in your blood pressure when someone VERY politely informs you of a repost.
