    He was the only good O-Lineman we had.

    Once again, our organization fails to realize games are won in the trenches. Yet, they go out and blow money on 30 year old running backs.

    When I was bangin' for Levi Brown.....way back in March, Both Beerlover and I told you this could happen. So what was that you were banging me about on the other thread there second honeymoon ?

    It's not all bad they get to look at a young guy a few more weeks and delay a decidsion on him, Roster or PS. He's not gone for the year....but might be a good time next couple of weeks to look up Micheal Oher, OLT Old Miss. Interesting story. Reads like Dexter Manly II. And we will for a fact get to see Winston audition at OLT this preseason. And what I posted about that will come to fruition also.

    You're wrong again. Yes. I will keep calling you out until you stop over generalizing like a girl.

    Your right, Chester Pitts is a pro-bowl caliber linemen!

    Please, our line blows. Our D-Line is ready to be the best in the NFL, our Linebacking corps is getting there. Our Running backs are middle of the pack. Our receivers are getting there. Our QB's blow and our secondary is the worst in the NFL.

    EDIT: Thank you Mr.*****, I'm quite fond of that comeback myself. Don't use it without my permission now. I know how you get emotional like a women with PMS.

    And somehow the line got better the deeper we went in to last season, even though Spencer was injured.

    Hmmmm.....faulty logic detected.

    Rampage, do you ever slow down long enough to read what you type? You said no other "good" linemen. Now you say Pitts not a probowler. You are quickly losing my respect as a fair commentor. Pitts is a very good guard. Don't put words in my mouth.

    No surprise here. A lot of people have been saying he would be put on PUP. Not sure aobut some of the sources we've seen, who've claimed he was doing well and getting better. I'm not sure he won't be out the entire season. And once again my faith in the line's ability to protect the QB is shaken. Salaam isn't meant to take the reins for the year.

    Not a suprise at all. I had been expecting this move. I would have been shocked had he been able to go day 1. They need to go slow with him, and ease him back this year, with the hope that he is close to 100% next year. The truth is that he will probably never be the player he was destined to be, but maybe he can be 80 or 90% of that player on the high side, which is certainly good enough.

    Just for clarity, could you explain "good enough." Cause there's good enough to start and there's good enough to back up the line, and I'm not ready to consider him good enough to start after this injury.

    Once again - Thanks Ron Dayne!

    No big suprise with this move. Maybe Tony is avaliable for 6 weeks?

    This is very good news. He wasn't placed on IR. He was placed on PUP. They expect him to be available in October. This is the reason why Jordan Black was signed.

    The best news is that his cartilidge has regrown and it sounds as though the doctor, Kubiak, and Charles are convinced the threat of a degernative condition are pretty well behind him.... If he's going to be a good/great LT, who cares about 6 weeks of one season being missed?!
