Not good. The only bright side was that Stapleton played pretty well.

it is a loss, because now we have no depth. we already lost faneca to FA, and didnt replace him with anyone. mahan is gone, as bad as he was at center, he could have at least filled in at guard.. but i understand there was probably issues there and he had to go. its unfortunate, but whatever.

Agreed. Simmons usually couldn't hold his blocks for 2-3 seconds. Let's see what Stapleton has to offer our porous o-line.

i'd still like to see colon move to guard ,he's obviously not a tackle. get essex some playing time to see how many tackles we'll need for next season.

I was rooting for the past couple weeks for Simmons to get benched. But certainly not go on the IR. That really hurts us big time. Lets hope Stapleton can do the job. Now if they would just get Starks in there to replace Colon, maybe we can see if it gets a little better out there. The dogs didn't seem to be getting in there quite as much after Simmons went down from what I could tell.
