Default Whats our OL Lineup look like this week???

Heading into the 3rd Pre-Season game we should have our OL locked and ready to go.


Adams flaming out has me worried again......We can't have LT play like we had at the start of the season last year.....Ben was nearly eviscerated in those games

I think we see the same as last week and maybe get Starks in at LT with the #2's vs Buffalo. I'd hate to throw him in against NFL starters on his 4th day back from injury.

Gilbert can handle LT again. The kid is a Beast!

They are trying to go with Starks-Colon-Pouncey-DeCastro-Gilbert. RIght now the question mark is Starks. They want to make sure his knee is ready.

Exactly. That is why I would not risk Starks rushing back in a preaseason game to start against anything but the Bills 2nd string. That is just me, but Kugler will do what is right for his group. Coach Kugs is a Beast!!

For the remainder of the pre-season:
Gilbert - The Colon - Pouncey - DD - Foster

For week one:
Starks - The Colon - Pouncey - DD - Gilbert

As many have stated: no reason to rush Starks back (for a completely MENAINGLESS game).

If the "Starks Colon Pouncey DeCastro Gilbert" line can stay healthy this year, I have high hopes this line can protect Ben and provide for a dominant running game.

Me too. That should be a great line if they can stay healthy.

our running game will be beastly if the guys up front stay healthy. of course that's always the big question mark with our line. Hard for the line to gel if they're always playing musical chairs.

From the sounds of it, I don't think Gilbert is going to run first team left tackle for the rest of this preseason, because Starks appears to be back. I felt that Adams progressed in his last game and I expect further progression against the Bills.
