I agree that Wade is a tackle & I want to keep him there. I think we'll need him at Tackle before the season is over. I wonder if they promised him a chance to start if he'd re-sign?
If Samuels isn't back in a timely fashion, I expect to see us sign a tackle or guard off waivers. I also expect (hope) to see Fabini cut. Wish he could fill in at guard but it doesn't look like he'll fill in anywhere.
Isn't Alan Faneca still holding out in Pittsburgh, too?

This is the real issue isn't it? Parcells saw it before the first Dallas game according to the NYT. He said something like "Jansen's getting pushed back a lot more than he did a couple of years ago." If he keeps playing like he did Saturday, there will be a movement to put Wade at RT and move Pucillo or Fabini in at LG. It's probably already begun.

When this experiment began a few here said put Jansen in at LG & I thought that sounded better than Wade & would allow Jansen to extend his career some. I don't know if he's big enough to play guard inside, but would be good at pulling.

Alan Faneca? Had forgot about him, don't know if he's signed yet or not, but I don't think we should spend big $ at the position.

Re: The Offensive Line: Should We Be Worried?

Mike Pucillo is (last I heard) slated to start at LG in place of an injured Todd Wade this weekend.

My prediction is Pucillo is going to do a solid job this weekend...and a LG controversy will ensue.

Re: The Offensive Line: Should We Be Worried?

So I just watched the game again on TiVo and I wish I can change my vote to being worried. I guess Samuels is very important because pass protection wasnt too great. I wasnt too worried about Campbell, because when he had time he was sharp. I am, however, extremely worried about our run blocking, it looked like we couldnt run worth shit.

Also why keep Cooley in to block the entire game?

Re: The Offensive Line: Should We Be Worried?

I think that Mike Pucillo will take over and do a good job at guard this year. He is athletic, strong, and mobile, and with Joe Bugel to tutor him, I think he will really step up.

I think the Todd Wade experiment at guard isn't going to work; some players are meant to play only certain positions.

I like both the idea of making Jon Jansen a guard after this season, and also promoting Todd Wade to starter at RT this year if Jansen is having a lot of trouble.

Faneca has already said that he is not returning to Pittsburgh.

Game On: Pete Kendall

We should be looking at Pete Kendall. He is in the middle of a bitter contract dispute with the Jets. After what he has said the Jets have to get rid of him. He looked good from what I saw in the Jets - Vikings scrimmage tonight and he is actually rated higher by scouts Inc the Dockery.

I would offer the Jets the 4th round pick they are looking for and solve this O-line problem right now so they have time to gel as a line. He'll probably come for about 2.5 Million a season but you get what you pay for.

Pete Kendall

Got a bunch of emails about him the last few weeks, and talked to some NFL people today (from organizations other than the Skins) who have been in contact witht he Jets. As I have suspected, they are not looking to move the valuable O Lineman now, despite his clashes with the organization.
He continues to practice with the first team and is playing well in camp and looks like a starter for them. It's awful tough to find quality linemen at this time of year. My best guess is maybe they try to find a half-decent guard off the scrap heat in a few weeks after the first round of cuts, but the trade market could be stale.



Looks like JLC beat me to this one... hopefully we can pull this off if Pucillo doesn't perform well at Guard Sat night.

Well, if he does a great job it just might end the LG controversy. Bugel seemed to hint that he doesn't want this to drag out for much longer, so I think if Pucillo comes in and shines Buges will bump him up the depth chart right away.
