So its 3 am, I'm up for no reason at all. It's hard for me to even check out the site lately. I see we got Henderson at the DT spot, nice pickup btw. Work and school are kickin my butt lately. I've been reading some posts and gathering we will at least have a run defense, finally. Everyone's still wary about the offensive line, though.
Most agree, with a few exceptions of course, that barring a trade or a free agent pickup Super Mario will be the starting LT with Gallery at LG and Satele at center. The right side is still a clusterf**k though. No one really agrees who should go where. So with little thought and absolutely no research, I figured I'd give my offensive line lineup a shot and let everyone rip on it. It won't happen, of course, so no need to freak out too much.
Right Tackle: Langston Walker
He was, after all, a career tackle. He spent a good chunk of time playing the right side. And he's not Cornell Green.
Right Guard: Bruce Campbell
Gotta get his cherry popped sometime. And the alternative is Cooper Carlisle. If he's as versatile as they say, should be an easy transition.
Center: Robert Gallery
I know that half are thinking, "WTF?!?!?" and the other half are wondering why Samson isn't here. I want some nastiness in the dead center of the line. Gallery fits that, plus he's seemingly played everywhere on the line, why not take a shot here?
Left Guard: Khalif Barnes
He's a guy who spent his career at left tackle who came in last year to compete for Mario's job when he broke his ankle or foot (one of the two, told you I did no research) and ended up going in at a few places. I figure we put him on the left side which gives a veteran presence next to his former competitor.
Left Tackle: Mario Henderson
I'd put him at the right tackle spot if we got Gaither in a heartbeat. But I'm giving him this year alone to finally show that he can be a premier tackle in the league. I'll give him last year and chalk it up to "Get that fat bastard QB off this roster now" syndrome. I guarantee anyone on this site who lived through last season would have done the same thing.
So enjoy mocking my mock line. It's 4am now, it deserves it. You have a better idea?
