I wouldnt worry too much about the hole there. I bet at this point without anyone really worthwhile in the FA pool, they will wait til the rosters get cut to pick up a casualty.

Good point. When do the roster cuts happen, anyone know offhand?

Folau just doesn't have it, I remember watching tape of him get burned badly when he was in at right tackle.

Well, they'll certainly have to do --something.

There's no way we could stick to being a possession/run-oriented ballclub if Folau starts at tackle. That's just a simple fact. That Stinch injury could come back to haunt us.
