    Let's hope that O'Brien understands and appreciates that Kalil is struggling and disappointing this camp and consequently we expect some other folks like maybe Davenport
    & Howard to get some serious snaps @ LT.
    If the HC isn't aware of those things then we got some big problems with the HC. I dunno but I think these coachs make these comments with the thouht that their players are their primary audience.

    Yes, but he started Seantrel last year. He put Rankin at LT as a rookie coming off a foot injury and missing training camp.

    Really shouldn't be surprising if we look at his history managing the ol and qb positions

    Kalil should just be cut. Snaps at LT should go to Davenport with Tytus developing behind him and Roderick as insurance.

    LZ literally said "Ewww" when Granato started talking about Roderick Johnson. & I didn't see anything in the PS game to think that he can be anything other than a Ryan Clark level replacement player.

    I could be on board with this, let Davenport have it this year and let Howard stick to LG. Roderick I don't know much about so I'll avoid that part but then next year either move Howard to LT or if he's killing it at LG keep him there. Pick 23 for a great, long term answer to LG is a good deal and the tackle group is suppose to be deep next year. Move up and grab a tackle that actually deserves to be a first rounder and not one that is a first rounder by default like Howard or Dillard.

    I think plan in drafting Howard was "if he can start LT hooray if not he will make a very good LG." IF as I believe we get TWill or D develops as I suspect, a long time solid LG at #23 was great move. My only distraction is we could have gotten one of the best corners #23 and a LTSLG round two or even round three (Scharping) as I stated right after draft.

    Oh I agree there were better choices from a pure talent point of view, personally I wanted Brown so that the next time Fuller and Coutee go down Nuk isn't alone, but whats done is done and at least Howard, so far, doesn't look to be a bust or completely unable to adjust to the speed of the NFL. Coming from a smaller school without the benefits a D1 has for preparing for the NFL that's about as much as you can ask for from a rookie.

    Quite the contrary. I’ve aligned myself to take over most of the power of the daily operation of the board. Won’t be going anywhere.

    Actually I was just on the Pats MB and they are filing a tampering charge against Texan Talk so maybe you can come here next year.

    UR knows as much about how Kalil looks in camp as you/I do.

    With this said, Kalil is about done.

    Makes sense to me. Should be more interesting than trying to determine which camp bodies are going to make the practice team.

    My guess is that televising joint practices might give some folks here actual real data to base their bitches on other than some nobody’s tweet.
