Is it a consensus among people who have attended camp that we need to find oline help from outside the team? From people who have seen it first hand, have they been that horrible?

Nah they'll all make the probowl this year.

The consensus seems to be gross is ok along with Silatolu and kalil but the right side is a mess

IMO, yes. Need a vet RG. I think decent plug and play OGs are easier to find than OTs and that Bell can be serviceable if playing beside a starting caliber RG. Bell is always going to struggle against speed and there are going to be teams that we play that we'll have to keep a back home to help him.

We have to face some beast dlines this year. I didn't think they looked that good on Sunday but that was the first full pad practice, The right side needs some upgrading. JPP and Aldon Smith are lurking.

As per the Barner article that was posted earlier. Whether this is tacit admission of our o-line woes, I cannot tell.

I say sign Brandon Moore if we can get him reasonably priced and then wait to sign a veteran tackle after cuts.

He announced retirement last week I believe

Moore came out and said that wasn't true. He is just waiting for the right situation (money).

I wouldn't mind making a trade for someone...Hurney was always the king of using late round draft picks to trade for a few guys that could help out.

 

Don't think thats Gettlemen's preferred method which is ok...just hope he has a plan.  As someone said in another thread if its that obvious to us then its probably pretty obvious to them.

I'd feel more comfortable if we did sign somebody. Not too big on Wharton, but it would be better than nothing I suppose.

by all accounts silatolu has looked outstanding thus far, which automatically makes gross and kalil look more like the pro-bowlers they're expected to be. less messes to clean up. most of us have been calling for a right guard to come in and add some clout to the position for quite some time. i'm sure gettleman is as aware of the need as anyone, especially now that kugzilla has gone done with a hammy. bell is serviceable at RT, but he needs someone competent inside to complement him.

 

either way i'd expect to see a lot of packages with hartsock lined up on the right to give a little extra help. from what we've heard he's a halfway decent receiving option as well, so i wouldn't be surprised to see some passes tossed his way. makes sense now that giving him a contract was a bigger priority than expected during the offseason.

 

i don't think campbell is going to do anything for us. at best he is depth. between free agency and next year's draft we need a new starting right guard and right tackle/franchise left tackle that can let us kick gross back to the right to finish out his career.

 

thanks to all the fugers down at training camp providing the raw data to allow everyone to make attempts at interpreting it.

Ya I always thought gross amini and kalil would be good, but the right side would be horrible. Could prevent our whole offense from being productive

I would really like to know if we even invited Eric Winston in for a talk. If we called and inquired about him possibly coming for an interview and he simply wasn't interested in talking to us then that's fine. But if we didn't even try I would really be pissed at our front office.
Our right side is $h!t. Cam was bull rushed much of the entire season last year from the right side and we have done absolutely nothing to address this problem.
Mark my word, if we can't get help on the right side other than who we already have, our season will be no better than last year. One of our 1st 2 picks should have been a offensive lineman. Shouda, wouda, couda . . .what can we do now?

We need a RG, a RT and need to be looking at replacing Gross next year. His restructure IMO means he is about to hang his cleats up on his own terms.

We played with fire last year....hopefully DG ends that game and brings in some legit vet OL rentals. Not after week 2 either but right when cuts happen....we can't afford to get in a hole 2 weeks in.

First game is Seattle and they got a very good front
