Rivera says Travelle will play Left Guard

Recommended Posts

Everyone think we are done picking up o-linemen or not??

I don't. 

 

I am probably asking more than making a statement, but I think a lot depends on the status of RG Chris Scott.  He has looked decent when I have watched him.  If he makes the roster, he is the lineman we need.  If not, maybe we grab one.

 

If Scott makes the team, we are still thin at T.  Sure, Wharton can play T and GWilliams has played RT some, but I am not sure worse than Bell is a good idea.

 

Does that make sense?

I see us running a lot of 2 TE sets the first couple of weeks, with Hartstock (and maybe Tolbert in the backfield) on the right side ... not the end of the world.

 

I can see it now.  The 3 TE, 2 RB set!  Woot!

Problem with Wharton is he doesn't really fix anything. In his last two seasons with Carolina he was horrible and one of the lowest rated lg in the nfl. The right side is still a problem and nothing's been fixed, you could question that Wharton makes the line actually worse especially if Wharton doesn't move to rg or something is done there. This should be nothing more then a placement for amini when he gets back.

So we drafted an OG in the high 2nd last year to be a "backup"?

Wow, Hurney can't stop haunting us. We have pretty much screwed every single 2nd round picks with Hurney.

Right because Gettleman knocked it out the park with Kug. He doesn't get a pass because this is his first year. No excuse to have a misfit oline

Many like myself doesn't like the Kug pick. We felt that Kug was a huge reach. Gman isn't getting a "pass". The difference though is Amini being a high 2nd and Kug a 4th. Most people view 1st and 2nd rounders to be immediate starters. I was a huge Amini fan before last year draft and I still am, but he hasnt given me any hope.

did he happen to mention what the  plan was for the right side or is he still thinking that williams is the answer?

 

I think we should play all our line on the left side. Kalil would actually be the rightmost lineman and we would have 4 to the left. Or maybe 6 with two TEs over there. And an RB and a FB

 

Then we just roll cam out left every time.

 

Then Superbowl.

 

Does Shula read this forum or should I email him??

I don't think he was horrible.

 

Look at 2011.  He started bad....finished very good.  2011 was also the no offseason/lockout, learn a new O season.

Maybe they are going to play Amini, Wharton and Gross on the left side and do the old unbalanced line formation like we did in junior high.

He was a decent to good guard. Saying he was one of the worst LGs is just a short sighted statement
