    Guess they can add Jackson from the 49ers to that list after he was cut.

    I wish we could add the Oliveia the tackle from the chargers.
    He was a 7th round pick so his contractg should be pretty low.
    We could always do with an RT

    I'm kindof a Cook fan after last year.

    Sure he had his tough spots, but overall I think he did pretty good considering he was a C in college and was then thrown to the wolves at the NFL level.

    By the way, once he got used to the same gaurd (Herrera) he seemed to do alot better towards the end of the year.
    I think he will be at RT for a long time.


    Now LT, we can discuss getting rid of that guy.
    ;D

    You know, Marr, I've been thinking the same thing.

    If McKinnie keeps getting in trouble, and Cook keeps preforming well, McKinnie might be out the door.

    Especially if they both keep up the pace they were at last season. Bryant didn't preform up to the standards that someone of his pay grade should be held to.

    Can you say Chase Johnson?
    Some sites say he can play LT and some say he can't.
    Probably would be a nightmare if they tried to move Cook to LT and put Chase in at RT.

    This whole McKinnie thing just has my ass all chapped.
    Fricken dude letting the team down when stability at the OL is most critical.

    The problem I see with that statement is that is a common invalid argument that is used by far too many fans here, IMO.

    Who sets those standards? The fans? LMAO! They do, but I feel they are off-base.

    A player doesn't play any better or less better simply because of what he is paid. Granted there are incentives that might make a player work harder, but I don't think generally a player purposely takes plays off simply because he makes less than someone else.

    An agent is obviously going to try & get as much money for his client as possible & if a team is stupid enough to overpay a player, it's the teams fault, not the players.
