We let McKinney explore a trade

I don't see much downside to replacing this overpaid lineman.

If I was McKinney, Walker, or Payne I would be really nervous right now...

Seriously, as soon as, there is viable replacements for McKinney, weigert and Walker. All are overpaid for their production, but there is nobody to repalce them.

I'm praying that Hodgdon really comes through in training camp and progresses enough to take over for McKinney sometime during the season...

Wiegert was our best lineman in 2003. He blew open holes for DD. The problem was the he was playing injured all of last season. If he plays like 2003 in 2005, he will be fine.

didnt we sign weigert as a free agent, not through the expansion draft? i think the only players on the OL that should be stable for now are pitts, weigert, and wade

You will probably see most of those guys gone. I noticed all the expansion is disappearing. That's cool. Once we start winning with the new guys this will all be over.

The only expansion draft starters we have are Coleman, Walker and Payne.

Wiegert, McKinney, and Wong were FA signings.

We need to find replacement for Mckinney and Wand, unless both really step it up this year in a big way. I am fine with Weigert. I think he will rebound this year, and have a nice season. But, let's face it, there is not one player on the oline that is really a plus player. Wade is slightly above average, everyone else is average or below. We really need to use next years #1 on one of the bigtime LT prospects. That would really solidy the line imo.

Wand deserves at least another season to show us what he can do, if you're gonna replace Wand just because he had a so/so season in his first full season as a starter, then there are quite a few others that should be replaced who haven't done anything at all after several seasons...

If Wand doesn't step it up big time, I see us trading (assuming we have a good season) into the top 10. That will likely cost us our 2007 1st. We desperately need a stud LT. Is is the most blaring weakness on our team.

That's why I said "unless he steps it up in a major way this year". Wouldn't that be the "another season" you are talking about? Wand was not good last year, any way you sugarcoat it. We need a rock at LT, and I have some doubts whether he is that man, although I think he would be a terrific swing tackle off the bench. He has is "another year", let's hope he can hit it out of the park.

My point is this will be McKinney's 4th season with us and Wand's second full season as a starter, why does Mckinney get 4 seasons to prove something and Wand only gets two?

Because McKinney joined us during our expansion era when every slot was a hole. We have the luxury now of not allowing subpar performances in key positions. Plus LT is the most important line position, especially for a right-handed QB. Who did we have that was an upgrade to McKinney at C over the past couple of seasons?

You are saying it is ok to keep players who underachieve just because they fill a hole for an expansion team? For the money McKinney has made in the past he should have done more than fill a hole. And I don't know what other free agent centers were on the market when we signed McKinney, but for the money we shelled out on him I am sure we could have gotten a much better center.

From what I recall it was a strong OG FA class and a weak C one. McKinney has been overpaid, but such is the way for expansion teams.

mckinney, walker, and bradford should definetly be worried about their jobs...if hodgden has a good training camp he very well might push mckinney for playing time...texan brass seems to be very high on him...at the very least i would think he would push either washington, weary, brown or evans out of their back up roles

The #1 person we would need to seek a trade is Gary Walker.

With so much youth in the secondary we may not need to trade up.
