Has there been any info from the press like asking gettleman questions about the horrible O-line and if he is gonna do anything about it? It feels like they should be doing the job of asking what we are all complaining about but we haven't heard shit from them.

Who are we going to trade for a OL that would make an impact. Our 1st rounder? Greg Hardy? Star? Olsen?

 

We aren't exactly swimming in trade assets. This isn't the NBA

Are there even any impact FA o-linemen available right now? There's no consensus as to whether Wharton would be a true upgrade for us (his play has dipped in the past couple years and he's coming off a major injury) and yet he seems to be the best option unless we somehow coax Moore or Waters out of retirement. Trading for an established o-lineman seems to be the only sure thing...but we don't have a lot of trade bait with how our contracts are.

Guys the oline is playing poorly. Blame them. Kugbila can't get on the field. Our 3 lineman to the left are high draft picks that have underperformed this preseason. Our 2 to the right are a work in progress. Kugbila is the future at RG if he can play healthy. That leaves Byron Bell whom probably makes 600k a season. There is nobody out there are RT in that price range. You either have to destroy our cap Or draft some more lineman next year. We've drafted 2 guards in 2 seasons, what would you have him do? Draft an offensive tackle instead of Star? NO.

Give the guy time until cuts are made?  Some of you back seat general managers would leave this team a complete fookin train wreck with your inanity.

If the OL is not important enough to pay Wharton....I doubt DG is going to pay any decent lineman cut soon. They will be Wharton caliber players.

I think people need to brace for us having what we got

That is a problem--especially in late August.  We have been screaming for the Right Side of the line help since January.  I can;t telll you who we can trade because I do not understand all of the contracts, but there are a few options---none with any real value.

 

So basically, you are asking, what do we have to trade that we do not want?   Not much. 

 

Or you could look at it this way:  Can we afford to lose a player at a position where we have solid depth to bring in a player where we have no starting quality help?  WHen you realize that you have to give something to get something, you start to see what the word TRADE really means.
