At the line, Brooks is definitely better. He's bigger & stronger.
I'm just thinking his size & athleticism gives us an advantage at the second level, which is just as important to our run game. Having him & Myers next to each other is going to be a challenge.
I personally don't see Wade Smith as a probowler & look for Brooks to take that spot in the future. But Ben deserves to be on the field as well.
you said he had he had a heck of a game, when i think he had a poor game.
also i think your underrating brooks' ability at the next level, he is surprisingly athletic for his size and can meet 'backers in the backfield.
I think brooks will be our RG not a replacement for smith at LG which if replaced will either be by another FA or draft pick.
