Bruce Arians said that Marcus Gilbert is the third tackle. I expect to see him play at least most of the year at one of the tackle positions now that Colon is out unless they bring back either Starks or Adams.

I'm all in favor of gilbert getting play time, but i was hoping he'd be forcing jonathan scott's ass to the bench. oh well, i guess we have to make do with what we got.

I agree, I was hoping it would be Gilbert at LT and Colon at RT with Scott as the 3rd, swing tackle. But, shit happens. I am interested to see if they ride with Gilbert or pick up Starks or Adams though. We'll see in the next couple days I'm sure.

I agree, it's ridiculous. I usually am pretty happy with the moves of the front office, but lately they just do not properly address the O line. To their credit, they drafted for it last year and this year. Pouncey worked out and I think Gilbert will too, but it was bad last year and Gilbert will not make it good this year. Everybody's job except for Pouncey's should have been up for grabs and they should have been looking for some FA O linemen. I agree with a lot of what the FO did this offseason but they can't just keep drafting one or two guys a year and hope it works out. While they have Pouncey they need to start Gilbert and get some FA with some years left in them to play the other spots. Hopefully we will at least get Flozell back for this year.

I know same here. At least the CB spot was addressed with some nice talent(course when will they see the field)

I feel terribly sorry Maurkice Pouncey. He puts so much work in an is Pro Bowl center but yet he plays with this shit OLine

People actually think that Flozell Adams today is a better option than Willie Colon? Ugh...The RT spot will be a downgrade no matter who they get to play there in place of Colon.
