No more injuries and we are light years away from where we have been the last half decade.

Yep. Not it's so much about Unger but about the younger guys training with him for cohesiveness.

Something tells me that by now... Charlie Sheen has used more that snot on his balls.

No, you guaranteed we are going to have low scoring totals in the first few weeks.

It doesn't matter if they are two seperate positions, you can have the best O lineman in the league but if no one gets open you will faulter. They can't block forever.

Franklin is a good pickup and is an insurance policy for both Tackle and quard.If Ramczek can't cut it Franklin could start at guard and Peat slides over to tackle. I think they are going to try and keep Peat at guard. OL is a strenght. I am optimistic we can weather the storm.

The oline has to block to help the receiver? Now you are basically saying receivers were our problem?

I agree. If Ram and Unger are both out then our offensive production should take a hit. We can't count on Unger because we know how inept our doctors are and Unger could have a set back. It's not a stretch to image us starting two back ups and not being a cohesive unit with an inexperienced LT and a center who can't snap the ball correctly.

Frankly, I'm a little nervous too.

Unger is close to being fully activated. He is obviously off the PUP/active list since he's been seen in pads practicing his snapping. Ramczyk is supposed to be playing this Sunday according to reports earlier in the week.

Most are relying on more inane posts from willy, while I'm relying on more hysterical replies.
