I think he's improved that part of his game since 2008 to the point where the Redskins can usually get a body on every player that comes between the tackles (the extent of the Center's responsibility), but I don't think it's THAT difficult a skill. I mean, freakin' Will Montgomery did the job flawlessly in relief of Rabach last season. And he had to get the call out early enough for Heyer to figure out what the hell to do.
Agreed.. and honestly I don't think anyone would be beating down Heyer's door to get him on their team, but in duty at guard last year he showed some promise. Keep him around in the competition for guard mix and you can slide him to tackle if injuries insist upon it. He's the new Artis Hicks, but younger.

Beck sounds great in storyland, but you should back him up with a winner.
I'd make that deal. We got to get something for them.

What about Alan Branch to play DE/ NT rotation player? He has expierence at both positions, young and would be a cheap alternative.

Is he restricted? If not we should def go after him. Has played NT for Arizona for four years. Wouldn't be very expensive and could be our starting NT on day one. We would have a good d-line with Carriker, Branch and C. Jenkins.

SS-
Any truth to this?

"Smart shopper: Mike Shanahan insists he's good with John Beck at QB, but OC Kyle Shanahan covets Texans backup Matt Leinart, who could be available. Also, Saints DT Remi Ayodele is one of the most unheralded but effective tackles in the league and could step in nicely."

I have never been a Leinart fan.

A lot of people have never been Leinart fans. I def. wouldn't trade for him, and I would only bring him in as a free agent if there was some proof that he actually cares about being a decent quarterback. All the indication I've seen up to this point is that he's never been committed to the game, and isn't committed to improving as a player.

If he can't handle the media and the fans in Tenn how's he going to react to the pressure here? I wouldn't be shocked if he doesn't get picked up at all.
