LETS GET THINGS STRAIGHT ABOUT THE OFFENSIVE LINE

92 posts in this topic

Guys like Justice and Mcglynn were just brought in because they came cheap and we did not have the cap, They aren't starters and Im sure Grigson knows that. Mcglynn will be replaced with a quality starter I have little doubt, Justice on the other hand I can see starting next year, not because he is good but because we have so many other holes that we need to sure up and I just dont think RT will be high on that list because mainly thats not Lucks blindside and if a Lineman gets passed Justice Luck can see that Lineman coming which obviously means he needs to make his move fast, Guard however should be if we have any hope of being able to run the ball consistently

Agreed... the one exception (to Justice being our starting RT going into next year) and its a long shot, is if we somehow pry one of the big time LT who are "available" in FA and move AC to RT... I don't think that it will happen..... we will most likely be looking at a couple versatile journeymen or young guys who aren't yet on the team yet at both G spots, but most of the quality OL in FA will resign with their current teams....

AC is a very young but a good LT. No way will we try to move him at this time. Remember he missed training camp last year do to strike and the was hurt a big part of the year and this year had to learn a new system. He is far and away our best OL.

so you're going to completely ignore that Kruger abused him(and Winston Justice and also Sowell)?

abuse? Castonzo allowed 1 sack. you are getting way dramatic, kruger abused Justice like you said not Castonzo

and like i and other have said, he is getting no help from TE/RB.

Exactly. I swear, either some people are just repeating things they hear from other people, or they just don't have any idea what they are actually watching.

Castonzo was getting help all year around from Dwayne Allen. There were tons of players who missed time in training camp last season, but still are out performing him. Nate Solders, Troy Smith, Mike Pouncey. List goes on. Anthony is the number one oline prospect period. Stop making excuses for his play. It was awful this season.

No, you don't get it.

 

I am not making excuses for his play. I'm vehemently refuting your assertion that his play was awful in the first place. His play was NOT awful.

 

No one is saying that there are no other young tackles who played better than he did this season (I don't know what Mike Pouncey has to do with anything, since he's a center, and I'm not sure who this Troy Smith is; do you mean Tyron Smith?) No one is saying he didn't get help from his teammates. He has a ton of improvement to make, and that's normal for a second year player. But that doesn't make him awful, and the fact that you continue claiming that he has been awful makes you less and less credible.

Well put sir! No one is saying he's a stud LT (yet) but he's not awful by any means.

Castonzo's play is about 5th on my list of concerns over our starting Offensive Linemen...

    • Fickle Charger fans might bolt [no pun intended there.] However, diehard San Diego fans aren't going anywhere. Losing Bosa isn't gonna jeopardize their shot at a new stadium either since even if Joey had showed up at the beginning of training camp & balled out; His presence alone wasn't gonna generate droves of revenue from the CA legislature courtesy of tax payer funds that residents approved of. Financing is usually generated by ownership, city council members, zoning committees; vendor appeal; & taxpayers who are convinced by elected officials in Congress that this new stadium structure will pull in money from hosting other events adding lucrative annual revenue directly into your state.    Yes, winning football teams make it easier to get land & financing faster for a new NFL home than a losing franchise sure, but the league understands all 32 teams need to thrive fiscally in order to make the shield more profitable both in the US & abroad.    Even with salary guidelines in place now based on the CBA & when a player was drafted, losing out on Bosa won't be that demoralizing to me because all scouting departments do rigorous workups, interviews, & 1 on 1 sessions with players they are interested in before & after the Combine so it's not they were blindly throwing darts at a board here. I don't feel sorry for San Diego at all. They pulled the trigger on Bosa, retracted their offer, & now get to eat their homework research failure. Life goes on. 
    • This is an owners thing,  not a players thing.   The things that the owners are asking for were not spelled out in the new CBA.   They're asking for the large bonus to be paid out nearly a year after being drafted.    AND,  they're also asking for the off-set language to go in their favor.       And since neither was addressed in the CBA,  both issues have to be negotiated by each team and player.       The owners are asking for both.     Most players are giving one or the other but not both.   Believe me,  this will be addressed in the next CBA.   This is not all Bosa.....  
    • Not for his majesty King Belichick and their prince Brady you are correct.
    • Maybe he shouldn't have gave an answer to the Bosa question but his answer wasn't wrong. 
    • I think you might play better than Butler did last year and what little I've seen of him this year He gave up a 117 passer rating when targeted in the slot last year.  He could never play outside. We need  an upgrade. I think we got what we could out of him.    I'm now getting frustrated with Smith. I thought he looked more comfortable vs Ravens and was hoping to see a little more this weekend. i was fine with limited action in the preseason but come he out again. I hope he's ready week 1.

    • Hey there Amy,    Nice to meet ya & don't be shy. It's an awesome mixture of deep thinkers, jokesters, & diehard horseshoe fans here. All opinions & perspectives are welcome here. We have football fanatics, causal observers, & just curious people on here who like to vent, blow steam, broaden their horizons, & just chuckle at stuff the regulars always say. All team allegiances are encouraged to express themselves politely & peacefully here, which is pretty cool too.    I just watch the games at home on Direct TV Sunday ticket by myself usually.
