2. If Pucillo can play guard, then we should consider Wade at RT because he played great against New Orleans last year and this thing with Jansen has been building for some time now. He is not the player he was. That's not to say that he can't have a good year, but it won't be easy for him. He will have to actually work at it.

3. Everything we saw last week could be irrelevant. Look at the difference between the Eagles in their first two games. I have a hard time believing that our O-Line, which was dominant the second half of last year, could suddenly turn to shit because the one player that everyone here would have said was the weak link, if you had taken a poll any time last year, isn't here anymore. Stephon Heyer is a rookie and the others looked rusty. The defense is often ahead of the offense in pre-season and I expect this group to edge their way back into form. I just can't beieve that Dockery is irreplaceable even if Wade is not the answer. But I could be wrong. The Bills obviously saw something.

Good points. The defense generally is ahead of the game at this point in the season; the offense is much more timing oriented.

That being said, let's look at Pucillo tonight to see how he fairs against an aggresive defense.

They have their work cut out again. I'd hate to have to pass block against those guys. They come from every which way. We shall see what happens. What I hate is that if they suck again it will be a full blown media thing this week. What's wrong with the offense? You get one pass in the pre-season, I guess, befor the hyenas start gathering. It would be better to avoid all that even if they really are going to suck.

Of course, the Redskins could solve that by coming out and kicking ass tonight. I guess that would be asking too much though, from this team.

In preseason, they always seem to give everybody watching plenty of reason for doubt.

It seems we do give people something to talk about, don't we?

I would really like to see the offense put together two or three nice drives. Even if we don't score a ton of points, march down field for once.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

one thing is for sure, if we dont draft a O-lineman in the 1st or 2nd round next year, we are screwed.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

I say we put Mike Pucillo in over Todd Wade because Mike Pucillo is actually accustomed to being a guard.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

Well clearly Pucillo makes this team. He gives us depth at C and G and looked just fine tonight.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

Yes, there was clear improvement from last week to tonight. Wasn't Campbell sacked like three times against the Titans in the first quarter or so?

There was far better O-line protection -- hopefully Pucillo is the missing piece of the puzzle.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

You have to figure that Wade is now behind simply by missing this game. They still haven't had time to really evaluate him at the position.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

I'll preface this by saying that I was a huge fan of moving Wade to G. The raves he got last year and his performance when he played showed he is at worst a decent NFL RT. That couple with the supposed easyness of the G position made me believe that a decent T could probably be a decent G. I mean G is supposed to be the easiest position on the field.

I started becoming concerned when the rhetoric about Wade switched from "Man he looks great in practice" to "Well his is making a tough adjustment and he is working hard on overcoming the difficulties."

Seems to me that it really shouldn't be all that hard. Now that the rhetoric has not changed and he is missing time I am pretty much convinced he can't do it. Just a gut feeling but I think this experiment ends soon. Too bad whit got hurt like he did. I suspect he could have been decent for us.

I agree with you. The left side of the line looked good, at least in pass situations. When Samuels gets back they will start to pimpslap people.

Re: Mike Pucillo v. Todd Wade

NEXT choice plz ....?

I hope Wade will be able to make the transition, only these next few games will tell, IMO they are probually about even, below average at this point. It will be great to get CS back!

I agree. If were basing it on last week vs this week, I would say Puccilo played better at the spot than Wade did vs Tenn. However, the line as a whole played better this week too.

However, no matter how you look at it, we're going to miss Dock. Not saying we should have paid him that type of money, but we are defintley taking a huge step down at that position, and I think we'll see that while Dockery may not be an elite gaurd, he's much better than "average" like many people want to belive.

Well Dock isn't on the same planet as Hutchinson and he signed a bigger deal. He was not worth it and we need to move on.

If we struggle with the three time pro-bowler in, then I will worry. Right now I like what I saw from last week to this one.
