I think that keeping continuity on the offensive line is important. I'm fine with a starting lineup of McKinnie, Hutchinson, Birk, Cook, and Johnson. All of those players have the physical tools to be great (I believe all are above 6' 5"), and after playing together for a year should gel a lot better. If not, trade Dwight Smith and Mewelde Moore for Alan Faneca
I think that Cook will be the RT this season...and Hicks and Johnson will battle it out for RG...hopefully Marcus hit the weights this offseason!
I like the trade idea...in theory...but we can't afford another contract like the one that Faneca wants...he wants one like all the rest of the FA guards got this season.
So forget about seeing Faneca in purple and gold.
