  1. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    No need to be sorry were debating opinions here! Its all good! If your sending chips left and right who the heck is running routes out here? If your chiping both sides you have no check down. Most teams move guys around, but they prefer to put them on the D right side O left side to get them on the QBs blind side(unless your QB is left handed). Yes hes over extends, but against certain opponents he almost has to so they don't take the edge from him being slow footed. You could be right about him being top heavy as far as his strength and that could be an issue, I'm under the impression that he's overall a pretty strong dude. I'm not calling the guy straight dog dodo, but I'm not satisfied with an average or good enough LT anymore. Yes the O scheme is terrible and it will be scraped and changed with the new OC we bring in next offseason but I just can't see how fans can defend this OL anymore. 40+ hits a year is not all on your OC. This OL is bottom 5 every year in pass blocking, this year is no different (28th via PFF). Also our run blocking as regressed this year as well. Its not good enough!

    Couldn't agree more, and you have to think Ballard is fully aware of this. I know everyone wants go keep building that D and we will, but let's start by putting together an OL that's not bottom 5 in the league every year. Let's start by actually protecting our franchise QB that's already suffered more serious injuries then any QB should in their entire career.

    His run blocking is up there with any T in the game IMO, his footwork is suspect for a blind side protector but moving him to RT allows us to chip with a TE or RB, he has issues with quick inside moves becuz he plays heavy on his kick step so moving to G would allow him to play more balanced, he's an okay athlete for a T but a really good one for a G, his length and footwork as well would be excellent for a G, IMO hes best moving foward and attacking instead of playing backwards and on his heels. Issues he would have at G would be adjusting his leverage to get low instead of standing tall, getting comfortable being first to punch instead of waiting to counter, and just the bigger bodies he'd see.

    You might be right about JM being best at LG, but I gotta think the biggest issue is he's knees man. Sad but probably true

    As far as having someone to upgrade before, thats exactly what I mean and probably should have said that in my first post. I don't think AC is top 10, maybe top 16. I'm not talking about mental lapses becuz thats far from his only issue. Like o said before its not easy, but I'm watching tape on all the top LT prospects this year and I'm really liking a few. Trey Adams from Washington has drawn comparisons to Taylor Lewan. Mike McGlinchey if we decide to trade back, Connor Williams as well. This is the year of the T, I follow college Football a lot becuz of the lack of talent our team has. LeRaven has so much potential, has all the tools to be great, but sadly is mentally weak. Watching him in pre season you can tell he's playing scared, playing not to get beat. You gotta be a dog to be a good NFL OL, you have to have a winner mentality. His kick step was fluid as a rookie, this year he's been on his heals terrified of the inside move and he ends up getting blown by of the edge. I do understand moving in to G is not an easy move at all, but with ACs skill set and his veteran attitude he has a chance. I'm not even 100% sure he could but I'd be willing to find out. As far as George you'll get no argument from me. Bostic is not playing well in the pass or run game. I'm Also looking at ILB in this draft coming up and the WLBs are looking nice. Also hoping Anthony Walker can make strides

    Thats a perfect way of describing him, Saturday would know

    My biggest issue is that this OL straight up stinks, not specifically AC. I just want to optimize what we have with new talent. If we take a LT round 1, but through camp we decide he'd be better of starting his career on the R them I'm with you. But if he's a stud there's no need to wait
  8. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Do you think we bring Mewhort back tho? I think we try to upgrade to a less injury prone but high caliber G in FA. Thats just me tho
  9. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Its looking like when we pick every prospect will be pretty special.
  10. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    And I'm with you on making adjustments and hopefully getting a running game but it starts with the OL. It won't be easy but it can be done
  11. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    It doesn't matter what he's been, what he IS is a LT thats been declining steadily. What he IS is a LT whose best attributes are that of a RT or G. Why cut him and pay him half his salary? There aren't 30 LTs better in the league, but there's 30 better OLs then the Colts. Optimize the talent you have with new talent you bring in. If its so simple why is our Franchise QB not playing rn? I'm not satisfied with an average LT, might not be easy to find but who has more excuses to do w.e it takes to find one then us?? Nobody. Thanks for the input and bleed blue

    His pass blocking is too inconsistent for the blind side. I like his running blocking a lot and that's why I brought up G.
  13. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Well, the speed rush sets up both of those techniques but I get what your saying. I don't see him getting bull rushed or over powered much at all by anyone. He also struggles with athletic edges who can chop his hands and bend the corner( Chandler Jones killed him with it week 2). Jack had so much promise before the injuries man, it breaks my heart to say this but I don't think we bring him back. This knee injury has lasted 3 years now, they might not all be related but he's compensating for something. Its looking like a career thing, and he hasn't been the same player this year.
  14. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Fair enough, my thinking is more towards if we decide to add a stud T or Ts through the draft kick him in. He has pretty good feet for a T, but he'd have excellent length and feet for a G. I'm honestly tired of having a "serviceable" or "good enough" OL, which its really not. Clearly its not working, yes our QBs hold the ball so why not acomodate them instead of forcing them to change their style. KCs OL is ehhh, but they drafted their LT #1 overall and paid Schwartz hella money. We can't sit back watching Luck get killed and say, well he holds the ball too long, were decent enough up front. Let's at least do something. Thanks for the feedback my man
  15. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    100% agree he's struggles against speed. Chud is just straight awful, id love to see all those things you mentioned incorporated in our O but he's just not a good enough OC to call them or call them at the right time. We should help AC, so pump him inside to where he doesn't have to deal with the freak athletes. We keep him where he's at for now, but if we take a T round 1 hypothetically then I say its worth a try. Thanks for the thoughts!
