    If I was the coach I'd...

    I was thinking about our offensive line and I think a lot of our troubles early on stemmed from inconsistent play so here is how I would reshuffle the line. what do you guys think?

    Right tackle- Marcus Johnson
    Right Guard-Toniu Fonoti
    Center-Marvin Fowler
    Left Guard Anthony Herrera
    Left Tackle Bryant Mckinnie

    I think this group is big enough and has enough meanness to be effective

    What do you all think?

    P.S. Maybe its a stupid post, but I'm board.

    That actually does look like a good line to me. That's how I'd set them up.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    What I would do-

    RT- Rosenthal
    RG- Goldberg
    C- Fowler
    LG Herrera
    LT- McKinnie

    I think thats fine. If goldberg screws up get him out of there.

    I think mixing and matching whatever works game in game out is what needs to be done. I really would like to see Johnson get as much work at Guard as possible, because those are tougher shoes to fill than tackle.

    Re: If I was the coach I'd...

    By watching Fowler, I think he would be better suited at guard more than center. This is how I'd set them up.

    RT-Johnson(he will learn, give him time.)
    RG-Fonoti
    C-Birk
    LG-Fowler
    LT-McKinnie

    RT- Rosey
    RG- Herrera
    C- Birk
    LG- Fonoti
    LT- McKinnie


    RT- Johnson
    RG- Fonoti
    C- Birk
    LG- Herrera
    LT- McKinnie

    Re: If I was the coach I'd...

    I like Johnson and hope he can develop. because right now he is not playing very well. he had at least 3 false starts and a holding call on a TD!
