I just saw that ephram salaam just got signed by the texans, and that FREAKIN KICK ARS!!! :yahoo: he is a big and physical tackle that is light on his feet. he played at denver a couple years ago but became a free agent and they couldnt afford him the next year. this right here gives us a vet to Kubes system on the line and can help develop these guys even quicker, not to mention a legitamate starting OT.
again i am forced, but like hehe, to watch denver games because they are regional in ID, but i loved watching him play. i think that we are getting better on the oline and this signing right here just may have bought us another win.

GO TEXANS!!!! Keep up the good work!!:ok:

The way things are shaping up, I wouldn't be suprised if the O-line is all new faces when the season starts.

Didn't he play for like 3 teams already? I thought he had been in the league only a few years...not knowing anything about him, I was unmotivated by his signing. Sounds like he will be a starter, wow! Todd Wade must be packing his bags.

You guys better pray to god that this guy doesnt start. He was easily the worst o-linemen for the Jags last season. He lost his job to Khalif Barnes after the 4th game of the season. It was very frustrating having him as our LT. He was a turnstile and you guys should hope he is cut by the seasons start. You do NOT want him starting.

He is a good locker room guy though. :spy:

Then he is still better than what we had. In Kubiak system he may again prosper. (fingers crossed)

This is better than last year for sure... HOWEVER, makes you wonder you great a start we will get off to since reps is what the OLine will need to gel and get comfortable in the new system...

Anyone heard about the learning curve typically needed on the Denver blocking scheme... Between Flanagan, Salaam, and maybe Weigert, seems like the ability to learn and implement ought to be pretty quick.

Last I heard, he's a zone-blocking OL, which I don't believe the Los Angeles Jaguars have.

I wouldn't worry about it. It sounds to me like he was being asked to do things in the Jags system that he did not excel at and he was a force on the Denver offensive line. It might just be that he is suited to the zone blocking scheme and poorly suited to what Jacksonville was asking him to do.

Either way he's going to have to be better than Seth Wand, Todd Wade, Eric Winston, and Charles Spencer to see playing time so if he is then great and if he isn't then no worries.

Jax sells out as often as the Atlanta Hawks. 'Bout time for a move.

Very true....Just look at all of the trash bags covering thier upper deck. Worst fans in football by far!!!!

We sold out every game last season...

And its not the Jaguars fault they dont live in a metropolis...but atleast they are staying true to their fanbase and not moving, despite the small market...*cough* oilers

But sold out games or not...we are still twice the team you guys will ever be. When was your last winning season btw? :)

And to those who wanted to know about Salaam; Maybe he will excel in your blocking scheme. All i know is that he was horrible in Jax, but he is great in the community. Although i dont think that he will make your 53 man roster unless he is depth.

I have asked around to a couple Texans fans (whose opinions I trust) and a couple Jag fans (whose opinions I would consider trustworthy also). I have not heard anything good on the addition of Salaam to our roster (other than he is a nice guy). While he may be here to add depth (competition as Kubiak calls it), I have not found one person who can give me a reason he would do us some good. Maybe I am missing something here, as I have no idea about the man.

Someone will come along and enlighten me, I am sure.

Salaam was great in Denver and was sorry to see him to leave. He is a very good linemen for zone blocking. I like what Kubes is doing we will have a good o line next year. It may not be great(yet) but it will be good.

Charlie Pallilo of 790 radio & John Harris college guru who is on 610 morning show frequently, both responded to my emails. Evaluation by both : Solid pickup to compete with Wade & Eric Winston for 1-2 years. Not much left in tank. No one knows what he signed for.

I love the way y'all are saying we are 'high' on Salaam over at the Litterbox. Typical Jag poster propaganda.

Not likely? If football was predictable, the ball would be round. Last I checked, Fat Albert was still your QB.

Salaam is going to compete for backup IMO. Not a great pass blocker..decent run-blocker.

Who knows...this could fit Kubiak's scheme. We shall see.

RWBinJax
05-05-2006, 05:36 PM
Good luck. E was a gate post in Jax, welcome to the QB. He could not pass-block. He was marginal at run-blocking.

He has, however, a great personanilty and will be fun at your post-game shows.

thunderkyss
05-05-2006, 05:43 PM
Being that he has a history with Kubiak, it's kinda hard to say what he's going to do...... why we brought him in.... but you can be sure, our Roster is going to continue to grow over the next month..... most teams will. This is normal, going into training camp. Even if Kubiak has notions that he may start for us...... someone else may really shine, and he may change his mind. Kubiak may just be giving him an opportunity to earn a job, or he might talk him into a coaching position........ we don't know.

why do jags call us tin horns?? where's that come from??

I'll go back home now, no plans to take up residence here as some of you have done on our board.

you Jag fans should pay more attention to what goes on around the league :). Denver Olinemen have a history of going to other teams and sucking. its all about the system.

Salaam is returning to the Denver system which he dominated in. That is why people are happy with the signing.

SicilianJag
05-06-2006, 08:46 PM
Salaam was a great guy, but was a swinging gate for us. The argument that he's going back to a zone blocking/Denver scheme is the only thing that gives any hope at all. We'll see.

Still bitter, I see. Thats Fargie for ya. PS- Tell Lefty that :mario: can't wait to meet him on the field.

Thunderkyss, them calling us 'tinhorns' is their little warped way of showing us love. They call the Colts "twinks" and just flat out hate the Titans. They give nicknames to all sorts of things over there. It's a Jag thing.

'Tis a strange place over in the Litterbox, quite entertaining too.
