I get a little concerned with this idea of switching back and forth across the line. I think they both play great, but what kind of message does this send if Jansen gets owned next week and we go back to Heyer again and over and over and over?

the RT starter doesn't concern me. both are good enough, neither is amazing at this point.

Jansen barely has any experience at center. I don't think it's a good idea to do any major reshuffling unless it's due to injury.

i am for either starting..heyer needs to gain valuable experience to be a long term factor in the skins future and jansen is definitely a proven, classy veteran with a chip on his shoulder to play well right now. I dont think it will affect the chemistry too bad either way it goes.

True, but perhaps that is a good option beyond this year...I know they played with the idea in preseason.
Jansen doesn't do so well in space in pass coverage anymore, but he is a solid run blocker. He'd be an awesome center because of that.
Guards need to be more nimble due to pulling and they are usually larger.

Ya never know....if they are both considered better than Rabach by midseason, it could happen if they have Jansen start practicing snaps as a center backup again. Of course this is a major stretch, it is probably as likely as the Red Snapper playing center...but this idea does minimize Jansen's pass blocking decline

Actually this is a good situation. Jansen has missed a lot of time in the past two years and that obviously has affected his technique. When healthy, we know he can get the job done. This competition is making him a better player and you can never have too many quality offensive linemen. Now if we can get some competition at the center position, we will have something going.

Great points all around h2dr. I like that JJ is showing some rebound, and Lord knows we all loved seeing those dives to the right side on Sunday w/o Portis getting nailed in the backfield. As to Rabach I don't understand what the deal is. Those consecutive penalties left me wondering whether his skill has diminished; however, I can't think of a reason why this would happen. Age should not be a factor. He's not injured. Maybe just an episode of mental laziness for a guy that has to work extra hard to be average.
