Good find! Thanks for sharing, but now if he could only wait until the ball is snapped to move.... false starts are just as bad as a sack.

I've posted this link half a dozen times here. Maybe it being the focal point of a thread will make the point more clear: Willie Colon is a quality right tackle when he's healthy.

plus hartwig led the nfl in sacks allowed, and was #2 the year before.

and chris kemo sucks. i wanted to root for kemo cause he's from my hometown but he just isnt nfl material

i don't think anyone doubts colon is a good player, but you have to say his durability as a question mark is a very justified one.

not trying to be a jerk but that's not a true statement.

you don't lose a down on a false start but you do with a sack.

also, your QB doesn't get hurt on a false start whereas the QB can definitely be injured from getting sacked not to mention sacks are often for bigger losses than five yards.

giving up sacks as an OL are way worse than committing a false start...

Colon had 6 penalties in 2009. Flozell Adams had 9 in 2010 (3 declined).

Well I rather the dope get a penalty than my QB getting hit 15 times a game. To say the other way around, is ridiculous.
These ass's need to protect Ben plain and simple and they dont.
