I actually think O-Line depth is OK for the Pats.

There has been a strong emphasis in picking up guys on the cheap, who may not be the most talented but who have a good work ethic.

I think we most probably have the best O-Line coach in the league - if you look at what he has achieved with so many 'who-dats' - our line very rarely breaks down.

As things stand we are probably looking at a front 5 of :

LT - Matt Light
LG - Logan Mankins
C - Dan Koppen
RG - Steven Neal
RT - Nick Kaczur

This would mean that we had two recent high round draft picks (Kaczur and Mankins) plus 3 other guys with multiple SB experience.

With Ashworth, Gorin, and Hochstein having seen plenty of playing time this year we should have sufficient depth barring major injury catastrophe.

I would however like to see the guys work on run blocking a little more - its probably alot to do with injuries and instability on the line - they done a great job of protecting Brady but we were unable to open up any sort of gaps for the running game.

Other than a single sports writer mentioning Keisel and the browns why does everyone think he will go there. Is there some story or quote out there I'm missing?

The browns need DL help and depth in a big way and Keisel would be a good fit..but you can bet your las dollar he is HIGH on our priority list with Kimo's situation up in the air.

The clowns cant have him, he's ours damnit!

This is from the PPG on February 26, 2006 -

Cleveland Bound?

The Steelers hoped to make Keisel a priority to sign, but instead he could come back to haunt them -- as a starter in Cleveland. The Browns have plenty of cap room, and Keisel might be someone they target and sign quickly. Two of their top needs are an outside linebacker/pass rusher and a 3-4 defensive end. Keisel can start for them at end and/or serve as a pass rusher.

"I feel we'll be fairly aggressive right off the top if certain players get to the market," Browns general manager Phil Savage said. "Those who wait, lose. Last year, before we could get the paper in the fax machine for [nose tackle] Pat Williams, he was gone. Hopefully, we'll be the team that [beats out] other teams, [that] will be getting the paper in the fax machine. We'll be fairly disappointed if we're not able to make a couple of moves fairly early." - The Pittsburgh Post Gazette

This story is what put the thought in most people's minds. It's pure speculation. Nothing more, nothing less. It's not set in stone that's he's going to Cleveland. It was simply mentioned that there is a chance that he could go to Cleveland. This is from the PPG on February 26, 2006 -

If we lose him, we lose him. Obviously I don't want the guy to go, but if he does get picked up by another team we have to move on like we have done in years past.

That is the story/sportswriter I was talking about. Since that story appeared it seems like everyone it thinking that Brett may go there. The curious thing is that they are not the team that is courting him the hardest.
