Re: Best position for Lelito?

Dont remind me of Grubbs
Carl Nicks one year,Grubbs the next.

I said sign Incognito last year as he was available for peauts. Also i would talk to Nicks and see if another year removed from that dirt Tampa locker room if he wants another go round. He had staph and MRSA from that unclean locker room and he is still only 31,id give him a call at least. To be honest it would work as i ssigned him twice on Madden Franchise once with the Jags and once with the Saints and he was good.

Damn the Saints suck on Madden,first game of the year let up a 60/70 and 80 yard TD on 3 and long. So life like

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Aren't a lot of people counting on one of our UDFA's to step in and start at guard this year? Or to at least compete.


Currently both of our starting guards were UDFA's. Their only competition are this years UDFA's. Considering we used to invest heavily in our guards that's a scary thought.

Re: Best position for Lelito?

He is better at Run Blocking than Pass blocking by his own admission, hence the reason that he is better at the RG position. The Right Side is always the strong side for running as opposed to the left side is the strongest pass protectors.

No, I think he he was at least adequate to be a starting C he would be and Unger wouldn't be on our roster. We wouldn't have traded for Under at all.
I think he is better suited for a Guard if we have to play him there.

Did you expect to him to be named All-Pro his rookie season?!? Tim has progressed brilliantly, outplayed, outlasted many linemen in his class that were drafted...

Perspective - Arizona drafted Guard Jonathan Cooper with the 7th pick of that 2013 NFL draft; he just got thrown in with a 2nd rounder to acquire DE Chandler Jones...

Not every guard is going to be Steve Hutchinson; Lelito is doing a fine job and has performed better than busted, lazy Grubbs we wasted valuable cap space...

And as far as Left or Right, the guy is going to geaux where coach asks him, a rarer quality in today's game; well, I'm just gonna leave this right here...

We invested a fourth round pick (Jahri Evans), a fifth round pick (Carl Nicks) and a seventh round pick (Zach Strief, moved to RT); we only spent money to retain Evans and Strief; and we let Nicks go and blew it out on Grubbs, a Ravens cast-off...
