    already thin on the O-line, this is pretty devestating.

    Man I was thinking about that...I'd trade Tate and merciless for a good RT or guard.

    They had Gardner playing RT and Brandon Brooks has the size to do it, not sure if he's polished enough for it, though.

    I expect us to go DB and Newton as our tackles with Gardner as the swing. We might keep 4 though.

    What's the deal with Butler and tearing muscles ?

    How about Brandon Brooks at RT or is he to small ?

    No. Someone will shake free tomorrow who can do this job. There is no need to go throwing away great players and first round draft picks for a RT.

    Is there a post-game press conference online? The video isn't playing for me on HT.com.

    That stings a little....... I have confidence in Newton but we need a versatile swing Tackle. The waiver wire tomorrow may allow a vet to come in here and fit in alright.

    Brooks is struggling to grasp the guard position. I doubt theyll throw him out there on the edge.

    I think Tate is s great player, but we can agree to disagree on merciless. If give him up for a good starting caliber guard or RT in a heart beat.

    This is like the most quintessential knee-jerk reaction to preseason I have ever seen.
