Default O-Line Shake-Up

This guy would be a perfect fit for our offensive line of overpaid castoffs.

Nice homework.

My only gripe is that he's injured. We all know what kind of luck we have with putting our hopes in oft-injured players (Boselli, Joppru, Hollings).

He is a risk, but it does sound as if he only lost his job due to injury.

At this point, with what I read from our owner...I just don't see us making ANY more major moves until about 10 years from now. Maybe another nine years will be enough for Capers to prove himself, according to McNair.

This is just getting worse by the minute

I'm not sure what you expected, but McNair is not going to come out and say "We're firing Capers if he doesn't get XX wins for us this season". He'll give the ole vote of confidence and then let him go at season's end.

He has a broken hand. This can be over come pretty quick, not like a shoulder or a knee.

I agree we have gotten burned with injuries in the past.

Ofensive Linemen can still play with a broken hand. I've seen many games where a lineman is suited up and on the field with a cast over his arm.

The guys got some good credentials...

Had Drew Brees not had such a phenomenal year in 2004, people might very easily have mentioned the name Toniu Fonoti (TONE-u Foe-no-TEE) when discussing NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

After sitting out the 2003 season with a foot injury, Toniu returned to the field in 2004 more determined than ever. He started every game and finished the season as an All-Pro. Toniu’s devastating blocks filled the highlight reels as he helped pave the way for the league’s sixth-ranked rushing offense. As a unit, the Chargers offensive line surrendered only 21 sacks in 2004, fourth-fewest in the NFL.

Fonoti

Well...we have 27 sacks in 4 games. We beat the Chargers! The higher the number the better. Right?

It's rare that we agree, but I have to say Wonger is right, there isn't a position on the O-line that couldn't be improved at this point.

Too bad we don't have anything of value to trade other than draft picks. Casserly loves to throw these away, so it might be a possibility.

So, has Wand been completely written off as another bust???

Don't know if this was posted already... Texans planning an offensive-line makeover

Pitts has to play LT from here on out, he's the best option out of this bunch. If Riley takes over for what was supposed to be the best offensive lineman... well, the thought of that leaves me speechless.

If they could get Fotoni into this mix they have the potential to win at least 3 games this season.

This is a start. Riley is going to the Right tackle Spot.

This is incredible. According to the article you shuffle these ineffective players around and add one face to the line - and that where we have the weakest backup. Wade vs. Riley for starting RT - talk about your epic battles!

Of course, ol' Len may have gotten this scoop from our message board and not the front office.

riley is not the answer in the starting lineup at all. He has been a RG or RT most of his professional career, but he was servicable at best. I like the Pitts to LT I have been posting it since I came on this board. I am not sure with Hogdon, but if he studies film and does a good job pulling and with blitz pickup I will not have a problem with it.

Did you see how tired he was in the 3rd and especially 4th quarters? He'd still have to play every down on the right side. If I was the defense I know which side I'd put my best rusher on.

Herein lies a major clue to the root cause of many of our problems.

Just over a year after giving a guy (Wade) a six-year, 30 million dollar free agent contract including a 10 million dollar signing bonus, he's being demoted and asked to compete for his job against a journeyman right tackle who plays for the minimum. I'm sorry but I don't see the good in this. This is a major league goat rope and our GM should be held responsible. Don't get me started on some of the other contract decisions...
