OK, Wand did have some successful run blocks in the time that he was in there - and his upside is very good. But as far a starting right now I dont think that he has the pass play protection down yet. If he did - why didnt Capers and Palmer put him in there? It is his first year, going into his second - He is raw despite what you saw. He certainly didnt dominate the game and let me clairify by saying that he looked lost and confused on pass protection assignments. And that is typical of a rookie offensive tackle. I am not knocking the guy - he's a hoss and I like him. And I want him to dominate the NFL, but he is not ready. Unless there is something that I missed? I guess that that is my point - I should have explained myself better.

I agree he isn't ready. I have been calling him a 3 year project since the start of last year. We actually agree as far as that goes. I just took issue with the lost and confused part.

I think we see eye-to-eye on this one for the most part.

You guys all make good points. I am just glad that we have a little depth and nobody is talking about Jimmy Herndon.

well your right about that...no one is talking about herndon thank god...but i wouldn't say this is a good spot for us to be in with LG...we're trying to figure out who would be better to play a spot and our choices are a journeyman center/gaurd(washington), two second string young and raw guys(wand, weary), and brown who is coming off of an injuried season where he really only played one complete game for us...not a lot of experience...would really like to see us pick up a veteran gaurd once the june 1st cuts happen...as far as mckinney moving to gaurd...i agree i think he would be much better at it...but i really don't want washington starting center for us...the center as to make all the calls and personally would rather mckinney do that
