    I'm hoping he's blowing smoke! Seems obvious we need some young blood on the O line that's starter quality1

    Nah, I think it's better if he's as smart as we are. Better for the Rams too.

    Now, if he'd just start taking my phone calls. :disappoint:

    I'm more than a little worried that Snisher doesn't think so.

    I think we need to keep sending lots of positive vibes out just in case.

    Snead has often indicated that he likes to take offensive linemen late and let them develop into starters, but I also don't think he would be able to pass on great talent.

    I've never played offensive line, but I would think a knee injury would still have a huge impact for a LT. You need that lateral quickness to stop a speed rush, don't you? And isn't that what the ACL injury affects most?

    Yes. And planting of the leg(s) while the body resists the opposing force is more strenuous than people think.

    Gotta wonder WHEN a guy sez ,ya know this is my last rehab next years my last.
    Jakes gonna need new knees some day
    As far as the "wait for them to develop" ..doesn't fit the need timetable,I say we go for close to finished productcs and the patterns people think they see are hit with dramatic anomalous events.

    Good first post psx! It's great to start out with a like. Although I don't know what they do for you. I think you get a title or something eventually.

    I think you're correct in that assumption. I'm keeping my toes crossed he'll recover enough to be effective again.
