It's not so much of when Ben said to me, but what I said to him. I asked him if he was comfortable playing guard, and he sort of stopped to think about the "party line," if you will. He said he'd do anything they asked him to do. So I asked him if he'd rather be playing center and he said yes, most definitely. It was that hesitation that a picked up. Now, while this isn't an evaluation of skill (after all, he was one of only 3 centers drafted that year, and most of us know what he did at Georgia); nevertheless, all things tallied, there's everything that makes me believe he'd rather be at his natural position...and I think he'd shine more. I'm sure now that Ben Jones thinks the same.

Agree he should be center but unsure when Myers leaves.

I have faith with Fitzgerald's S&C program Jones will improve enough to start at LG.

while jones could definitely use more sand in his pants, i really dont see him as starting material at LG, especially with what I and many others expect from quess. he just doesnt have the knack for either guard position. he's built as a center, better at moving and directing than at hitting and locating. jones has to be the conductor, he gets lost trying to play an instrument.

edit: thinking about it, i'm hoping this is the case - jones being a readily capable center. i'm very worried that myers is little more than a product of kubiak's system. kubiak had his faults, but he could most definitely turn average linemen into probowlers. i see myers being one of those who turns back into a pumpkin without kubiak.

Myers' cap for next two seasons $15 m & Jones $1.5m then both are UFA.

Jones: "We look up to Quessenberry"

Quote:
Texans C Ben Jones talks about ending minicamp, David Quessenberry at practice, getting ready for training camp, the acquisition of former teammate Akeem Dent, and more.
Sounds like O-Line is going to keep Q busy while in hospital. Nice young man.
