So when he writes about offensive line play, it's worth paying attention. Add in the fact that he doesn't regurgitate conventional wisdom and his new stuff at SI.com becomes a must read.

To Tucker, all these megadeals that left guards have been getting, including Alan Faneca's recent $40 million deals make no sense, because as he sees it, left guard is the second easiest position on the line to play. He ranks left tackle as the toughest, followed by right tackle. But he sees right guard as the position that is underappreciated. The reason is that he believes most team's better interior pass rusher is lined up against the right guard. And on most teams, the left guard gets help from the center as they slide the protection to the left, while the right guard is left on an island in pass blocking..."


http://www.aolnews.com/2008/04/05/ar...rds-overrated/
He played all 5 positions on the OL in a 7 year career, with 23 starts.



He may not be the "expert" we think him to be. Athletically talented.... mos def... but obviously something didn't translate to game day.

& by no means am I an expert, but I tend to remember Warren Sapp & Simeon Rice lined up predominantly over the LG.

And I'm pretty sure I've seen Watt the most over the RG or RT.
I haven't paid attention to Sapp or Rice, but I do recall watching Wade's guys when I tried to learn about Wade's defense over the years, that Bruce Smith lined up all over the place (like Watt did), but I'm pretty sure he made an awful lot of plays over the RG and RT.
I'll see if I can confirm that when I have some time to rewatch the games.

If my memory is faulty, I promise I'll let you know.

For a year, I have been discussing replacing Wade Smith after 2013 season due to his age and salary. His health now adds to my position. If Crick can start in 2014, Wade should be gone.

Brooks strength is, well strength, and that's why they would want him blocking on the play-side as much as possible. Also it's not just LT Duane Brown, but the LG who's got Schaub's 'blind-side", and Quess was a multi-year LT in college and therefor probably a better, more experienced pass-blocker than Brooks.
This has been my position since the draft. I'd like to see Q back up Brown and Smith this season and start LG 2014.

Maybe we'll see a rotation of Quiz and Jones at LG and a rotation of Newton and Harris at RT this year? At least until somebody steps into their role full-time?

Is Crick going to switch to offense?


Or does Crick starting mean we don't need Wade Phillips anymore?

You know I'm on your side, I just need to know which of my goofy arguments I need to brush up on.

Q looked much better than Jones. I don't want to see a rotation there. If Smith can't go, throw Q in.

Should the Texans be on the lookout for a vet guard who might be on the trading block? Do they have enough cap space to even pickup a vet? This is a big year for this franchise and I would be a lot more comfortable with Quessenberry backing up at guard and tackle than forcing him into the starting lineup on week 1.

It actually took two reads for me to get what you were saying! lol I want Crick to replace Antonio 2014 ($9m cap) and Q to replace Wade. Too dang many Smiths. A mind is a terrible thing to waste...I am now accepting email donations for the "save BADBOY" collection. Can I count on you to be first with a hefty gift?

Not sure if it would be worth it imo. If Quess is the future, let him gain the experience. The problem with our scheme it seems the more you mix and match the worse our play is. This scheme relies heavily on becoming one cohesive unit. Havent seen that since Winston and Brisiel.

Absolutely! I want a fluid LG who can assist Brown in keeping MS safe. Brooks just fits better imo on right and should improve our run to the right scheme. Q sort of reminds me of Bruce Matthews who could play either tackle or guard. Like you, I'd prefer Smith healthy to start this season allowing Q to not get in the fire but he is getting valuable experience now.

I agree. I'd like to see him get a lot of PT with the 1's against the Saints. If he holds up against starters I'd roll with him. Imo, Jones hasn't progressed much since last season
