Colon to RT
 
This is an old song and I know most of us are sick of hearing about it.

Max Starks most likely won't be back after tearing his ACL late, and Ed Bouchette tweeted that Marcus Gilbert will be moved to LT so that WILLIE COLON can return to RT...damn it.

Gilbert was decent as the season went along but is far from an elite lineman...yet. Now, we will be letting the horrible Colon take back over on the right side.

There are a lot of quality G and T in the draft and I can only hope that the first and second round hold some of those lineman for us. We need another Maurkice Pouncey on that line. Legursky is a china doll, Foster isn't a full time starter and Scott...well, we all see how he does facing good pass rushers.

I don't like to question the man in the big seat because of how consistent they have been...but what the hell?

Colon is an above average lineman when he's healthy. He's horrible only because he couldn't stay healthy for the last two years.

Don't know what games you watched but when Colon plays he is a damn good RT always has been. The last two years he got fluke season ending injuries. He is still young and if he stays healthy the O-Line will be better off with him then without him.

Well i'll question it, because when it comes to the Oline the consistency has not been there

Look for the online to improve significantly with Haley running the show. JMO.

Willie C. is a good lineman when healthy, he's just not been, well, healthy. If he manages to stay healthy you'll see improvement's to our line with him in there.

colon was by far the best. most consistent lineman we had his last healthy year. most of the successful running plays were run behind him. i just don't understand the steelers reluctance to move him inside to strengthen the interior. he was good tackle that would probably be a great guard. infact the talking heads when he came out of college suggested that he may be moved to guard in the NFL.

I don't have any problems with Colon at tackle, although I think it would be ideal for us to sign Jared Gaither at a low price (if possible) to play tackle and move Colon to guard.

:hunch:

"When he's healthy"......."If he is healthy."
That's the problem with Colon.
Lately, he's never healthy.
Can't assume he will be an asset next year.....too questionable.

Football is a brutal game especially in the trenches.
