    That's interesting that they have Black starting over Salaam. Everything I've read points to Salaam starting and Black being the backup for both tackles.

    Salaam started off as the guy on the first day of camp. It's his job to lose. He actually played pretty darn well last year.

    I don't know. The guy seems a little behind:

    1. Salaam is going to be our starting LT while Black is a swing backup.
    2. Flanagan and Hodgdon aren't the centers. Right now, the center position is going to start off being a toss-up between McKinney and Flanagan. I think Studdard might be given a shot there. I don't think Hodgdon makes the team.
    3. I guess he hadn't heard the latest on Spencer.
    4. He mentions Cook but Cook is going on the PUP. I think Cook is gone by the end of the season.

    I expect to see the greatest improvement in RT Eric Winston's play, followed by RG Fred Weary, and finally LG Chester Pitts. If Salaam remains healthy that in essence will result in de facto improvement at LT. I hope to see OG Kasey Studdard given a shot at playing Center as well.
