Default Ben Jones needs to start at RG

Not even questionable, our running game was on fire with him in. He needs to start.

I think Ben Jones might be the player that I always hoped Antione Caldwell would become.

He did get moved back a good 6 yards on the Tate running play in the first quarter, I'd have to revisit the game tape to determine the exact play, but every other play he was very good at sealing his block.

He looked terrific for most of the game. Great pick up by the Texans.

This. I can't express how disappointed I am in Caldwell. I have only noticed Jones a few times int he run game, burying people. How has he looked on pass plays? Maybe that's why he isn't playing full time yet?

I'm with you man. This guy may turn out to be "that guy" that is the surprise of this year's draft.

Not so fast!

I've always said that I like Ben Jones better as a prospect out of college, but Caldwell's play shouldn't lose him his job yet.

We scored 24 points with Caldwell in the game and 7 with Ben Jones.

Both had a few subpar plays and it should continue to be a good battle to watch.

Ii will depend on how fast Ben Jones can improve; let's hope he can improve sooner rather than later (or slowly or not at all).

I think Jones will continue to improve and will be an OG starter next year. Hopefully big Brandon Brooks can get up to speed and be ready to start next year. Having an interior line of Jones, Myers, and Brooks would be absolutely filthy.

We also coughed up the ball when Caldwell got beat to the inside on his block and stripped Tate. Neither was perfect but I believe Ben Jones is the better option.

It looked like, on that play, that the DL had stuck his hand into the gut of Tate and basically was able to disrupt Tate's attempt to secure the ball with both hands/arms.

So for me, I blame the OL for missing that assignment so quickly. Great play by the DL, no doubt, but the OL was not helping matters for us.

Caldwell also got destroyed on the third and 3 that would have finished out the game in the 4th quarter, not even close. Looks to try and cut block and whiffs.

Finding this kind of value late in the draft is how winning teams are made. I'm really happy with this kid so far.

To answer your question, yes that would translate into a more affordable Connor Barwin. If he keeps bulking he could even kick inside when Ninja walks away. I hope, whatever the case Barwin remains a Texan, seriously good dude.

I got to see Ben Jones tonight next to Chris Myers and Duane Brown. Chris/Duane really look like they put time in the weight room and their conditioning, Ben Jones not so much.

They all come to the charity event every year for Owen Daniels, I'm lucky enough to be able to attend and give some time to charity, and get to meet the players.
