Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

So I read from practice reports that Gettis is improving.

I've read some good reports lately on Gettis, LeRibeus, and Compton. They all obviously have a long way to go, but it's nice to hear they are improving.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

As we all know art is subjective, just take a look at the supposed "top 10 films of all time" list, most of which were released well before we were born. As for any given Sunday, I thought it was mediocre when I first watched it, that's because I was way to young to understand the behind the scene politics and intricacies of playing, coaching, and owning a team in the NFL.

Fast forward 15 years later, now that I've matured, and became more educated about the greatest league to ever form, I see the movie in a completely different light, it's remarkable how deep he went into the psychological aspects and struggles that everyone has to endure, the astronomical amount of pressure that's put on everyone involved. In my opinion it's arguably the greatest football movie ever made, although the longest yard and remember the Titans were great ones too.

I saw a stat yesterday (I forget where though) that the Redskins have drafted the most OL in the NFL since 2010.. Combine that with the stat that we've drafted the most players in the past 2 drafts it seems like there is a plan to build depth..

In addition to the good reports on Gettis, LeRibeus and Compton I am also that I haven't seen where Hurt has regressed or peaked. It would be nice to have him as a solid backup that we could count on if needed.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

LeRibeus has some real dirtbag potential.
(i mean that as a positive, dirtbag like a baby hog)

He's a LG, Gettis is a RG. Different footwork, responsibilities, etc. He will get plenty of reps out there with Hurt running with the starters.

Im going to say that there are two reasons why someone would be better suited playing one or the other.........
first - i think it depends on who you are playing next to, like if the LT is the dominant force on the line you may want to put a certain individual at LG if he is a weak link - so that way you dont have a right side that is totally vulnerable.
second - unless everyone is pulling right or left on a certain play it might be difficult for a right gaurd who is used to going forward and right to go forward and left - the footwork is all different and the direction - like a right handed person throwing left handed ,,,that being said I think most gaurds can change sides if need be -

Chargers Sign Davis and Toudouze
I would say, "Who cares?" But since they are both former Tuskers, obviously the Chargers got two steals.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Im all for signing and exploring depth, etc. However I would much rather go with young draftpicks than old veterans that spent the majority of their career in the UFL - Oh and who is the "Black" you are referring to?

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Flew under my radar - I would have to agree with you on him not being a good option - if for no other reason than I never heard of him. lol - I want to call him camp fodder but if we keep dropping like flies on the line who the hell knows?

Yeah , at least Shanny can mold them young and teach them our scheme - I think Gettis is going to be a solid player - thought that when we drafted him - Iowa is like an o-line breeding ground.
