    We need Cook and Hicks to hold their own this year, giving T-Jack that extra nano second he'll need to pass, and to get a push for the runners. We all know the left side is OK. I look for us to keep rushing to the right all preseason to see who's going to step up on the right side. Looks like Ryan is a lock, let's see if Herrera can beat out Hicks.

    I knew that he would stick at tackle...he never seemed like the eventual replacement for Birk.

    He's 6'6, not 6'3"; if you go out of your way to mention somebody's statistics, do you think the sports writer could maybe get it right?

    He was reported as 6'7' when he was drafted, they kept saying he'd be too tall to play center in the NFL.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
