First of all....it was a lot of sacks. That's why I hope Scheuning is gone. He is a guy that is tough, strong, but not good in space and doesnt have quick feet. He's a smaller, slower version of Kemoateu and I really dont understand the fascination with him other than the fact he is ranked in the top 5 OG lists by the draftniks.

Scheuning is a liability in pass protection, slow to trap or get to LB's at the second level. NFL.com compares him to Jahari Evans of the Saints.....who the hell is Jahari Evans???? He fits with a zone block team where he can take one step laterally and block the guy in front of him......thats all that zone blocking is.

Albert, Zuttah, Rachal are all better guards and considering we have Simmons, Colon, Kemoateu, Mahan, Hartwig, that all play inside, we dont need a high pick on a guard.
