Default Right Guard: It's On

Looks like we've still got a competition going at RG.

I thoght Antoine was doing a fine job through pre-season & again week 1 against the Dolphins.

For whatever reason, we got a look at Ben Jones today & he didn't look half bad. This may be an interesting battle to watch as the season goes on.

Makes you wonder what's going on with Brooks. It'll be interesting if they try him out at tackle.

Well the running game worked much better today, although that might be as much about the defense we were facing as about the line play.

What was the split between their snaps?

Default Re: Right Guard: It's On

As a true right guard in college I expected Brooks to beat Caldwell easily. His size not just bulk but his ability to fit the ZBS may be more a problem than I thought. There has been no mention if he has kept his weight off & reducing since Kubes scolded him in camp. Perhaps it is an issue?

I thought Ben Jones played well. I really liked this pick from the get go. I like them tough & smart.

He also keeps Reliant Park very clean and safe by eating all of the roaches and insects. A total beast in every sense of the word.

I see this more as preparation for Caldwell not being re-signed for next year. The only issue might be that we'll need to draft another OC since after Jones we have nobody capable of playing there.

Thanks!

Sounds like they are not completely satisfied with Caldwell and may be targeting Ben Jones as his replacement. He must be too good to just sit behind Myers at Center and they want to get him on the field anyway they can. I wonder if this means Brooks may ultimately be moved to LG and replace Wade Smith, who is getting a little "long in the tooth."

I noticed Brooks was inactive today, though.

Can't remember if it was injury related or not.

Brooks was inactive last week too.

You can only carry so many and he's not one of the top guys.

No, BB, we were in our jumbo set both times.
Newton was at his normal RT spot and Harris was the extra OT on Newton's outside.
Jones was stil there at RG (one time he pulled to the outside behind both OTs.)
That's just how we roll quite often near the goal line.

That goal line series made me kind of sad. Ran a similar formation the first time and got nowhere, then put in another blocker on the right between the RT and TE, pulled the guard, had the fullback lead Foster again, and finally got in there. That seems like overkill to me, but it was completely necessary because we couldn't get the push needed without the extra guy.

Not really, Dutch.

Lots of teams, including the Pats, use that extra OT near the goal-line from time to time.

Or like the Dolphins, when they started all that wild cat thing, use an extra OT quite often.

Also, we have used this formation forever, when Salaam was still with us.
Near the goal-line, sometimes we would see D. Brown, Salaam, and Winston as OTs.

I thought I saw Jones in there but when I looked for Myers and did not see him, I though he was out a play. So we went with 6 OL?

We ran the exact same play on both TD runs.
Myers went immediately for a cut block both times; that's probably why you didn't see him.

According to Football Outsiders, Myers & W. Smith played every offensive snaps.
D. Brown was not in on 3 of them.

BTW, does anybody knows what Kubiak means when he says that Caldwell is going through the protocol with the league regarding his concussion.

Does that mean that he's automatically out for one game?
