    Namely Mangold, D'Brick, and Marcus Mcneil? Chargers are doing pretty well, and Mcneil was expected to be an excellent run blocker. And with LT's big game numbers, I'd say it looks like he is. And how bout that Jets Oline? How has the combination of Mangold and D'Brick faired? I really wanted Mangold on our team in the draft, so I'm interested in how he's doing. Definitely wouldn't trade him for Demeco though. :)

    Marcus Mcneil was not thought to be NFL LT material, even though that was his
    position in college. But so far, he may be the best rookie at that position,
    even doing better than the #4 overall, D'Brick Ferguson.
    Speaking of D'Brick Ferguson, we will be seeing him in some one-on-ones against Mario in a couple weeks when the Texans return to NYC to play the Jets. That's gonna be fun to watch !

    Hopefully Mario will be doing some more jumpshooting in Giants Stadium

    I remember the big knock on Marcus was his spinal cord problem (some disorder I think). Back problems are a big question mark, especially for a big, run-blocking type of LT like Marcus. Hopefully, he'll have a long career and it won't be an issue.
