Re: Jared Gaither for our second round pick?

The reason draft picks are valuable is because you can get players for cheap. The Ravens had Casey Rabach, Jason Brown, Jared Gaither, all players the Redskins seem to be coveting, and all players that were taken with low draft picks.

We should do the same. We should only trade for established players if they are the missing piece, not to fill random holes.

For example, I believe the Vikings traded some pretty premium draft picks for Jared Allen... But they already had a solid defensive line that was lacking the pass-rushing monster.

If we had a solid offensive line and just needed a LT, I'd be all for it. But that's not the case here.

What are you talking about? We've got Stephon Heyer, Mike Williams and Casey Rabach!!! 3 potential pro bowlers. :-)

if the guy is better then anyone we have, who cares how he practices? but i agree with the ravens being well run. maybe that should raise some flags

The funny thing is, you know how some people say the quarterback gets too much credit and also too much blame?

I think the same applies even moreso to the offensive line. If we were to have Peyton Manning on our team, I wouldn't be surprised to see those guys earn Pro Bowl berths.

Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees will make any offensive line look good. These guys are elite QBs in their primes. Any other QB, needs good offensive line play, hell how do you think Brett Favre was injury free throughout the season?

Yes sir!

Our offensive line will improve so much guys! look at that Saints vs. Redskins game, why did our team click all of a sudden? Because we got the early lead and had something to fight for. That's why we have coaches to help motivate every player and for this to happen game 1 through 16. Don't compare last year to this year just yet, these guys will be hungry and a guy like Jared Gaither would help a lot but not as much as potentially hitting a hungry young LT who will listen to everything our coaches have to say.
But then again my guess is as good as anyone's right

I don't think one needs to be an elite QB to make your offensive line look good. I don't know how you rank all the other quarterbacks but another example that comes to mind is Tony Romo and Bledsoe/Johnson.

Their freaking center made the Pro Bowl after that.

I would say the Cowpukes have had a pretty good line, definitely better than ours. They are getting old, but they are definitely not as terrible as our line.

Yeah... But do you think their center deserved to be a Pro Bowler, haha. He just road the coattails of Tony Romo, in my opinion.

Well if you are talking about this year Pro Bowl's, then I wouldn't put much weight into it. With so many people dropping out, you and I could have made it to the Pro Bowl.

Yeah, look at a guy like Joe Thomas. One of the elite LT's in the league yet their team isn't far behind us in draft picks. I know if I was a GM/HC I would take tackles only past round 2 and let the coaches do their job.

Well that team has been horrible mismanaged just like our team. They also picked up Brady Quinn in the first round and look how that worked out?

He would be a solid pickup for a second round choice.

I'd just keep our second rounder and get someone like Ducassee, or hope charles brown drops, or get Saffold of Indiana, or possibly Veldheer.
