Feel a bit better about the line now, I just wish we had someone to replace bell at RT.

In my infinite stupidity I would place Wharton at RT and move Bell into RG while Kubby heals up. Leaving Bell on the outside scares me and book-ending him with Kalil and Wharton seems the lesser of 2 evils.

If Kugbila returns do you want him replacing Bell or Wharton in week 3?


This scenario has the most upside combined with the least disruption.

RG unless we get another guard option.
Then move him out to RT.
Having him at RT might even be better for Gary Williams.

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.

 

You watch line play a lot.  Do you feel comfortable with Amini anywhere on the line?  He looks as bad if not worst than Williams at times but it's like no one sees it.

will be fun to watch this place crawl over the walls when Wharton replaces Amini instead of Williams...

the line played well down the stretch with no Kalil...Byers, Williams and Bell all in. 

 

It is not ideal but hopefully no missed assignments.  Players get beat....a low mistake-penalty light line is essential. 

 

I would like to see more line movement like Peyton has on roll outs...zone floods but ....lets just block first.

I'm hoping our panic is lessened a little once we show our game plan.  I expect Shula to recognize we

can't ask Cam to stay in the pocket very long with this line against most teams.

 

Hoping for quick outs and slants, and draws to keep the d honest.

 

I'm not sure they've run a single play-action pass with Cam so far this pre-season, so there is some hope things aren't so bad.

If he is in shape to play-and that's a big if-I'd rather see him on the right side so not to retard silatolu's growth. I'm sure aminu and gross have developed enough chemistry for this to work. The good thing about Wharton is his versatility.
