I wonder how long it would take to get Kendall acclimated to the system? I'm sure it'll take more than a few reps to get ready.

I think we throw him in this next preseason game as a starting seeing that JC won't be in. That way we get reps and he isnt too big of a liability.

On a side note this thread and the other Kendall rumor thread are talking about pretty much the same thing...

I would. But Coach just gave Heyer a ringing endorsement two days ago. Can we just forfeit our remaining pre-season games and wait for Samuels to get back?

I think they end the Wade experiment sometime soon. Slide Wade back to his normal position. Leave Heyer over there. It's really good experience for him, actually. They can critique his mechanics and technique using real game time film. I think this kid could actually end up being good.

I say they let Pucillo and Kendall duke it out at guard.

I don't think there will be any duking it out. I think Kendall will take it in a landslide.

It seems the Kendall pick-up solves several problems. First, Kendall will, without any doubt, be our starting LG by next week. Despite what the Jets are saying the guy is a starter all the way and has started all but 2 games since he came into the league (excluding injury scratches, which were minimal).

With PK at guard, Wade can shift back to his natural position and back-up Jansen. Some say Wade is better than Jansen, but regardless of who starts, you have high quality depth there. Hoyer is getting valuable experience and looks like he's got the goods to be a quality LT once he gets some more experience under his belt, which gives us solid depth at LT when Samuels comes back.

Seems to me this acquisition solved more than one problem, and the cost was minimal (who would expect a 4th round draft pick to start at LG?). Obviously I am concerned about PK's contract affecting our ability to sign Cooley to the extension he deserves, but I have a feeling we'll work around that.

Good call. I've had some reservations about it considering his age but it really might not be so bad.
