Risky for sure, because we have no idea how the gimpy Williams will play. But if he does earn that spot over Newton, that's great.
I think we focused too much on the right side of the line last year. The rotations & young players was a big part of that. But I think it took too much attention away from what was happening on the left side. Duane had a really good year, but we didn't see any of the dominating performances he spoiled us with in 2010 & 2011.
I don't think anyway. I don't think it's a cause for much concern, just mentioning, that's all.
Wade Smith, though he played better in 2012 than he did in 2011 I think he was far, far away from what we should expect on this line. He's declining. Specifically in the run game, still a fine pass blocker, but in the run game, we need
to get better.
I didn't see Brandon Brooks play better in 2012, but I did see damn fine play & the foundation to be a better player in 2013.
I saw a starter in Ben Jones. A starter at RG. But most of us are looking at our line as if we only need to figure out RG & RT.
I agree with you steelb, we need to figure out LG, RG, & RT
