    In the end, I think our G's ability to pull (Sully's as well) is extremely overlooked by all because they really focus on the area they are bit light and that is pass protection.
    Well at least you and I agree on the G not getting the credit he deserves, but I disagree on the "Load can take his guy out all day" belief. He's a good run blocker, but I believe he was over-hyped based off AD's yards.

    Let's also not forget the TE that's blocking out there as well.

    Nope, no G gonna be drafted this year. The perceived need at G is a bad one. All we need on the OL is a backup to Sully if the surgery doesn't heal 100% and more importantly, reps as a unit.

    In the end you don't build an OL by rotating new guys in each and every year. You find a group that can perform and stick with them. Thats what you'll see this year.

    Well, all I gotta say is keep those depends at arms length!! If they take PBA in any round there is a pretty good chance at a G or O-linemen that can play multiple positions being there.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Are you saying if Warmack falls all the way to #23 we wouldn't draft him? That would be crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is a top ten talent and to get that kind of value at 23, I would say Speilman is an idiot!!!!

    If Warmack is sitting there with our first selection then Spielman wil draft him... in fear of Adrian Peterson killing him.

    Just imagine Phil "The Load" Loadholt and Warmack on the one side of the offensive line... One of the biggest players in the NFL who has developed into one of the better run blockers teamed up with arguably the best run blocker that exists... Damn, I think I just crapped my pants.

    I didn't even have to break out my "Depends" last night.

    So much for the "Slide".
