Guard depth (sweet mother of Moses)

There just no way a d2 guy is gonna come in and hold up. His body isnt ready, he doesnt know the playbook yet, never played with the guys before much less anything close to this level. He needs a year to adapt. What Amini did last year is nothing short of beastly and should not be expected of Kugbilla. We need a vet now.

 

I'm sorry but Amini was garbage last year, albeit improved towards the end.

I think that was his point, that even sucking as bad as he did, was a phenomenal achievement for a d2 guard.

Whatever happened to Brandon Moore? Very solid veteran.

There is some vet depth available out there.

 

Worth remembering that every season sees teams wait until after week one to sign veteran players because they don't have to guarantee contracts then.

We are now 13 mil below the cap.

I have been out--does this factor in Beason's new deal?

Pretty sure it does.

 

My memory may be flawed, but I'm drawing a blank on when we last had that much cap space.  My sense is that it's been a while.

me taking a dump is a phenomenal achievement too, but doesn't mean i'm good in the NFL.

I don't think you're understanding. He did play poorly, but the fact that he wasn't an absolute all out train wreck last year comin from a d2 school an going straight to starter is a miracle.

Those dumps you take have more substance than the posts you make on these boards.

There is no reason he couldn't play to Amini's level. I certainly don't want to rely on both of those young guys at the same time though.

 

agreed. and remember kugbila actually has experience playing gaurd. silatolu didn't.

It seems like most people put down Kugbila automatically because he came from D-II school.  

 

Unlike Silatolu he is not changing position,  he is playing in a offensive  scheme that plays to his strength, he has the athleticism & body build to play his position, and last he was taken in a earlier round than he was projected by a team that desperately needed a RG . I'm going to keep my faith in the coaches and the front office about what they see in Kugbila.
