Default Winston?

Whats the word on Winston these days? With the problems at our tackles is Winston ready to step up and play or is he still not quite ready?

Supposedly there is some talk of moving Tyrannosaurus Eric to Guard. I think we should draft a Tackle in the first round next year either way. This never-ending line issue has got to be resolved one of these years.

Maybe if we'd stop moving our LTs to guard or cutting them when they are one of our two best LTs we wouldn't constantly need to draft one so badly. I still can't believe they cut Seth Wand and kept Salaam.

Although I believe we should have Wand on the roster instead of Bedell, do you honestly believe if we had Wand starting that OT wouldn't be a weakness on this team?

What's with all the knee-brace gear ? Oh that's right, if memory serves, I'm
thinking he blew a knee out in the bowl game his team was in at the end of the 2005 season ? So that's one knee, how come the other one is also
screwed-up ? Maybe we should invest our first round pick in a guy who's not
among the walking wounded ?

It wouldn't be a weakness on his side. We need 2 starters though.

I've noticed some college teams have knee braces on both knees of all their lineman, injury history or not. I don't know about Wisconsin specifically though.

Most linemen use braces on both knees to help prevent injuries, make it a point to look at the linemen this weekend, particularly college teams.

they also wear them on both so the one knee isnt a big target, if they wear it on the one thats weak, players are gonna go after it, and with two the Defense has to think about wich one is injured

That is why I was an advocate of us taking Ferguson. Hopefully when the dust settles in April, we will have a shot at a guy of his caliber.

Did not know that ? I don't watch that much college ball, primarily NFL ball.
Do many pro teams have this practice and if not why are they different than
the college teams ?
I don't recall seeing braces on any Texan lineman, except perhaps Winston but assumed his was related to the knee injury he had back in 2004 ?
So you're saying this is primarily preventative. You knew Thomas did have
a knee injury at the end of last year, and probably would have come out at the end of 2005 had it not been for the knee injury ?

I have watched Winston closely whenever he gets in the game. He looks like a typical zone-blocking tackle. His pass protection has been very solid as well. I think the thing i like most is that he is from the U, so you know he has a mean streak!

ehh okay bad joke...

Winston doesnt look like he is near being ready to start a game.

He is still too slow moving side to side & he has to prove to me that he can read blitzes better than he did at Miami.

He rarely got beat by DEs in college but LBs would just run right around him or underneath him.

I paid attention to him for 3 plays right after Sallaam left and he seemed to do a pretty fair job. Can't say I paid any attention after that, but for about 3 plays....looked solid, not dominating, but "OK".

Winston did fine, but he isn't the answer. If the coaches were that confident he was NFL ready, he would have been in by now. Hopefully some time in the weight room and some experience this year will help him grow. I'm writing off this year as far as wins are concerned...

It would still be a problem, but it wouldn't be nearly as bad. It might even be better than Spencer did (maybe), but he's a rookie so nothing against him. Salaam is useless. At least Wand would be out there getting the job done adequately most of the time, but not always.
