well no your right. i think he is a solid starter this year but thats about it. he isnt going to do much for us and he isnt getting any younger. we need to replace him. if we have to go into the year with him i wont cry but i wouldnt mind us getting an upgrade. plus you pick brown up this year and next year he has this year under him. but even with brown we may have to play gandy one more year because i\'d like to move mayberry inside. im not sure he can start at tackle. the question if we pick up brown is who is better at tackle gandy or mayberry. i really dont think thier looking at brown. i think their happy with mayberry and gandy. hope im wrong. we have the chance to get a possible great tackle and i dont think were going to go after him

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

i think that the inner part of our o line was good last year without mayberry. but our real problem was at tackle. more with riley but on both sides. maybe we can start mayberry there and then pick up brown and keep gandy as a reserve. im just not sold on mayberry as a tackle yet

The year before last our guards were Bentley and Jacox (and Holland filled in for awhile); not Jacox and Holland. Fontenot was center. This year our running game sucked - it wasn\'t just Riley\'s fault.

I like Jacox and Holland, I think they\'re serviceable. Like I said, I think Holland can still get better. I\'d like to be wrong about Jacox, but I just can\'t help but feel he isn\'t getting better - he\'s staying the same. He is by no means bad.

I\'m still unconvinced about Mayberry (thanks for the thoughts spkb). Moving him inside would be to move him to his strength - that isn\'t a knock against Holland or Jacox, but neither of them have been to the pro-bowl at G, and Mayberry has (if I recall correctly).

I agree w/ JKool. I\'m not conviced mayberrycan play tackle. He has virtually no experince. He does at guard. Draft Brown and move Mayberry were he can be a pro-bowler.
