OL needs depth
 
Our OL now needs some serious depth. With Ross and Vincent gone..coupled with Simmons reclaiming his starting job and Starx stepping in at RT.. There is virtually ZERO depth to speak of behind the starting 5..so look for C&C to pick up some veteran OL in FA, no real big names most likely, but guys who are experienced and especially ones that can be versatile on the line.

Starks looks veyr good so far and simmons is coming back so why waste the money, and we still have Hartings as or C Faneca as our LG and jones was under key, and the only prob area is that RG and the draft can handle that it but we will prob get a FA to back up .

Re: OL needs depth
 
A couple years ago, when we got Troy in the draft, we completely ignored the OL in the draft, and it was a total disaster, our OL totally sucked that year, and we were playing people outta position left and right all year long. If we ignore the OL in the draft, it's gonna come back to haunt us. Alan can play any position on the line except center, and Hartings can play center or guard and Smith can play either tackle position, although he's set where he is at at LT. But, we gotta get some decent depth to keep the cohesiveness of the line together in case somebody goes down, a couple of players via FA or the draft, that can step in, if need be and keep on going, just like Vincent did for us last year.

Its awesome that our 5 starters are versatile enough to play in any position, but man, I dont wanna rely on moving everybody around ever again, if we dont have too.

Blitz you are correct, we need some depth, this team relied on back ups all year last year. Now we are getting thin in a few places and the OL is one of them.

Re: OL needs depth
 
Blitz is very right, i think our left side is set with smith and faneca, and center is definitely set with faneca. But besides our defense, the o-line was the reason we were good, we had excellent rotation and depth. we cant afford to lose it.

Hines you meant Hartings at center. But your right these guys are solid.

Re: OL needs depth
 
my friend is a dallas fan and he tells me that larry allen is better then alan faneca. But i keep telling him that Alan Faneca is better

What do you guys think?

Re: OL needs depth
 
Larry Allen used to be good. Faneca is the best guard in the NFL today

Re: OL needs depth
 
I agree about Allen being old so Faneca is the best, but then people are saying that about Brian Waters in KC in relation to Faneca. But I would still bet a paycheck that we can get one yard behind Faneca.
