  1. Many fans are done with him. Many think he's worse then he actually is. But does anyone with real football knowledge think he could transition to playing guard?? It seems far fetched, but he's a very good run blocker, has very good strength, would be an elite pass protector for a G, and would have elite length for a G. I understand leverage and attacking with a foward step as apposed to a slide step would be different, but those are things I see him doing better at LT then kick stepping and pass protecting on the edge. Thoughts positive and negative are appreciated
  2. 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.
  5. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    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
  6. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    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
  7. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Thats a perfect way of describing him, Saturday would know
  8. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    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
  9. 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
  10. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Its looking like when we pick every prospect will be pretty special.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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!
  17. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Not saying that, but 12 will go through all of his progression instead of throwing the ball away or checking it down. Our O scheme needs tweaks we need more quick hitters, but Lucks ganna Luck at the end of the day. I'd like to make another Superbowl run, with a healthy 12! Thanks for the feedback
  18. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    But when do we run outside our tackles? Almost never, if you need a yard why would you run a stretch? I get you though and might seem far fetched but with his strength and proven run blocking track record I don't think its impossible. Kelly is a C to me, Good is okay bit I'd prefer him as depth, and Haeg had himself a terrible terrible game against Seattle. Your opinion is appreciated!
  19. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    I can't argue your D only giving up 20 a game argument, I'll take that all day haha. But here's the counter right cross to your counter lead hook, as elite of a player 12 is his style of play and our O scheme demand time to make plays happen. As the elite player its easy to say, well why doesn't he just adjust to what he has, but its what he does its inbreaded in him. He's not Peyton or Tom, he's not going to dink and dunk you until your D slips up. He going to hold the ball and create time in or out the pocket like Big Ben or Montana. Look how great Ben has been since they invested in that OL and brought in a great OC like Tod Hailey. I'm not saying this D is good enough by any means, but all I'm saying is while we rebuild let's start with the part that keeps 12 off the turf and off the stretcher so he can actually be that elite player. ILB is a huge need as well, I really love the weak side LBs in this draft class. pass rushing still needs improvement, but Sheard and Simon are good and don't need immediate upgrading like the OL. And I'm actually loving how our 2 rookie CBs have played. Wilson had a solid game against Arizona just needs to stay healthy and Nate Hairston holy balls this kid is balling!! Top 10 nickel according to PFF through 4 weeks. Also Rashan Melvin having a career year makes me comfortable letting Davis walk and maybe drafting a CB later.
  20. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Ahh so letting him go only to save 5 mil isn't totally worth it. I still say trail and error at G and if he doesn't work out save that 8.25 the year after. Thanks for the info and thoughts my man! Bleed blue
  21. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Ehhhh, a lot of teams are right there with us sure, but there's also a lot of teams with dam good OLs. No the top prospects are not always sure fire and I'm not saying let's reach on an unworthy LT but if he's the best available on Ballards board or tied with it you have to take him. AC being top 15 is debatable, but he has really strong strengths and really glaring weaknesses and that's not the sign of an elite LT. Our O scheme demands elite pass blocking Ts and that's a weakness of his. I just have to disagree with being satisfied with a good enough LT, the proof is in the pudding that it isn't working. Not all the blame is on him, but your blind side protector is suppose to be your most dominate pass blocker. He's a dominate run blocker
  22. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Yes those added variables would make it interesting. Idk how many teams are breaking the bank for an average at best LT though. For a good G, he might be looking at the same pay day either way. But yes let's upgrade at both T positions and keep 12 out of the turf. Were a team with many needs, but were nothing without a 100% AL12.
  23. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    But that's besides the point my man. No denying he gets hit 40+ times a year. But 2shay your technically right, even though the shoulder was already injured and the tackle made it flair up right?
  24. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    Right I agree. I should've put if we draft a LT this year. I like the T prospects coming out this year. Well have a high pick as well so we can get at least 1, I hope 2 Ts.
  25. Should Costanzo move to guard?

    I have to disagree my man. This OL IMO is by far our biggest weakness. I'm honestly glad and surprised Brisset didnt end up getting hurt Sunday night becuz no one wants to see Tolzien again haha. I'm not sold on D.Good as a starter at all, but really good depth 4sure. I'm still on the fence about Bond being our back up C let alone starting t G. I've been a Mewhort fan, but his injuries are eating up his career and he doesn't even look like the same player to me anymore. If we keep him thats fine, but its a risk that I personally don't think Ballard takes this offseason. All of those are needs, I'd say 2 WRs, but not before LT imo. Sheard and Simon aren't world beaters but they're solid. ILB is a big need. But outside Ryan Kelly this OL needs work
