you rotate kug in while he learns to take the skates off his feet.

 

i don't like starting rookies on the OL, regardless of what division they played in college or where they were drafted. bring them along slowly. throwing them in the fire might be good for their development, but it could effect the team in a really bad way.

 

bring kug along slowly this year. use him situationally when he's healthy again (rushing downs) and then go from there.

 

that's what i'd do, anyway.

 

you're a fuging cynic..  I think he could start day 1.

Gross - Wharton - Kalil - Amini - Bell

I honestly think that could work.

i think he could. i just don't think it would be pretty.

 

i've never been a fan of rookie OLs starting, esp. for us since we've had to deal with it so much in the past few years. i think it is a necessary evil but i'm ready for experienced guys on the line who are used to working with each other. i don't like the growing pains involved.

 

i'm one of the few guys that like kugbilla's potential and have from the beginning (although i still wish we would have used that pick elsewhere...esp. on patton) but rookie OL play like they are on roller skates and they make a lot of mental mistakes bringing about penalties and negative yardage moreso than others on the line.

I think a pairing of Amini and Bell....is something RR is too smart to attempt. Cam would get killed

Mark my words,Kug won't help this line much if at all this year. Next week we will see who else they can bring in to try and put together a serviceable oline this season. The big T helps, the right side needs the help bad.I wouldn't mess with the left side and start a whole new learning curve for Amini. Don't fix what isn't totally F##### up, fix what is.

Amini and bell on the same side is frightening, just be blown pass pro every other play

Amini would be better at RG at the moment, me thinks. Wharton had good chemistry with Kalil and Gross. It's worth experimenting on. Cam is getting killed now anyways.

I would put Wharton on the right side before I moved Amini.  It seems he is just learning the left side.  Putting him on the right side would make him have to start all over again.  Wharton is a vet who could play multiple places.

I think I would toy with Wharton and bell and leave Gross and Amini alone. The left side of our line is not the problem at the moment.

if silatolu hadn't tweaked a hammy i'd be all for running some plays with him at RG to see how gross/wharton look, but it seems we no longer have that luxury.

 

this doesn't exclude the possibility of making a switch a few games down the road into the season, however. if we're able to find a solid right tackle that can play better than bell and wharton is notably better at LG next to gross then i think the staff would be willing to experiment with a shift.

this kind of thing always makes me nervous on the OL. too much tinkering typically goes on midseason for my liking. unfortunately it's been kind of necessary b/c we haven't addressed the OL well enough in the offseasons.

it would definitely have to be the type of thing where they have a few trial runs in practice during the week to see if there's a noticeable overall upgrade in performance before trying to install it. you hate to kill chemistry, even if it's between mediocre players, unless there's some serious advantage to gain from it.
