Default who do you replace on the oline?

you cant replace them all this off season so who goes first?

the right side is fair to good when healthy plus we got to much money invested in them so they stay. although we do need a backup rg. i think they should concentrate on center, lg and a backup rg. maybe give wand one more year. they also have to get a dlineman or 2. so that would be about the most they could do(to improve the oline) this off season.

Wade and Weigert are the only ones worth salvaging.

Agreed...Based solely on the contracts we gave them, we kinda have to have them starting...

As far as the O-Line goes I would have a look at the LG and C positions. Like you said i would give Wand another year and the right side is pretty much set as far as contracts and all go. But i like the idea of a beasts at C to take charge and be a leader on the O-Line. I would also look into replacing the Pitts, but he would be good for depth.

Running to the right--2.8 ypc
Running to the left--4.2 ypc
Running up the middle--4.5 ypc

Somebody else posted this, but ya the right side was sooooooooooo much better then the left this year. Pitts, switched positions this year and has to play next to McKinney.

And I must I say Wiegert was only the 4th best linemen this year, to me atleast. (McKinney being the worst)

From infantrycak:

Chester Pitts
2002 15.5 sacks allowed, 9 penalties including 3 false starts and 5 holds
2003 5.75 sacks allowed, 17 penalties including 8 false starts and 7 holds

2004 4 sacks allowed, 12 penalties including 7 false starts and 3 holds

Seth Wand
2004 11.50 sacks allowed, 3 penalties--1 false start and 2 holds

I think that Wand has done a great job pass blocking this year, holding his own against some good pass rushin DEs but to me his run blocking is suspect, maybe he isnt quick enough for the zone blocking scheme. I would give him another year unless someone like Alex Barron fell to us in the draft(not going to happen) Weiger has been OK and is a better run blocker. Pitts and McKinney have been the worst IMO. We could improve at either position. It doesnt matter if we draft an O lineman or pick up one in free agency but we have to get better at pass protection.

Mckinney seems to be "light" on the Center side.. and if he could slide to guard that would be great.

I am still looking for stats on how wand did his rookie year compared to Pitts at LT on his rookie year.

The problem with our OL is that they are all originally mid-round selections. Pitts and Wand were both 3rd round selections. To improve, we need to invest first and second round picks.

This year, Jammal Brown-OT, Alex Barron-OT, Elton Brown-OG are the only three worth the 12th or 13th pick. I like David Baas, but he would be a reach.

I also like Ben Wilkerson-C as a third or forth round project. If not for his Oct injury, he would have been a first round selection.
