Keep Smith and say hasta la vista to Starks and Colon. Also time to draft some OL.

Kemo, Hartwig and Stapleton do a tremendous job in run blocking. Im thinking with a nice FA tackle pickup and a stud 1st rounder OL we can once again get this unit to playing top level in the trenches.

Realize that this is a patchwork offensive line we're working with here in the Superbowl and a testament to the staff (and Ben) on how well they were prepared to take on the leagues toughest schedule and come out 12-4.

I wonder if they plan on keeping Kemo. I'd say keep Starks and get rid of Colon. He's got to the dumbest OL in th league.

IF Smith is healthy, I like keeping Smith and Colon.....then letting Kemo and Starks walk.

Colon can play LG and hopefully Hills RT. A line of this from left to right would be good by me. Smith, Colon, Hartwig, Simmons, Hills.

That still leaves Stapleton as a reserve and hopefully some draft picks like Alex Mack, Eben Britton and if Smith's contract is friendly enough he can always move back to RT when Britton (or William Beatty) is ready to play LT.

Although Colon can be quite feisty, he seems like a huge hole in the line at times, imo.

No matter who we keep around we have to get a deal done early. Max and Kemo are young guys and will get long deals from someone Im sure and Marvel IF healthy sign him to a 1 yr deal and make him prove his back is better.

The times are probably 3-4 plays a game. The majority of what Colon does is very impressive, but he isnt tall enough with short arms to play RT. If he moved inside at guard he would be better than Simmons, Kemo or Stapleton.

I honestly dont think Colon is going anywhere. I expect him to get at least a tender offer, if not a 3 year extension in the offseason.
