Would Love This O-Line

Recommended Posts

Right now, I would love to have Shipley as the starting Center.

 

It looks like Satele will be the starter and Shipley/Holmes will duke it out for the back up job.

Satele will start next season and this forum will be up in arms about it next year.

 

Book it.

only until he is injured

Cannot carry 3 centers so do you think Shipley even has a chance to make team? I think satele starts holmes is on roster.and I do not like Satele under Center minus he gets the ball to Luck without drama,Shipleys touches were questionable at times

Shipley is a hybrid G/C. If Donald or Thornton/McGlynn go down I can see us turning to Shipley to play Guard.

I have NO>>>>know idea what was going on behind the scenes LAST season....   But when Shipley was playing C the O seemed to move better.

 

Just my "UNEDUCATED" eye.....     but .....

 

This is my prediction..

 

Shipley

Thomas

Thornton

GC

Costanzo...

I think the X-factor on the line projections has to be Ijalana. If he can stay healthy (big 'if'), he could end up starting at guard. Castonzo, Cherilus, and Thomas have both tackles & one guard spot locked up. That leaves Center and (other) Guard. Satele and McGlynn were the starters last year. I like Satele in Oakland, but he was utter garbage last year. McGlynn is back-up with versatility in my eyes.

I think the line was at it's very best last year when Shipley was at Center, and we drafted a guy (Holmes) who can play center. I would like to see competition between Satele, Shipley, and Holmes, and I would hope Shipley wins the job. I think Satele needs to be relegated to back-up this year, and then shopped around next year. (I don't think there is enough depth to let him loose this year.)

I would like to see Reitz, Thornton, and Ijalana compete for the vacant Guard spot. (Whoever doesn't win out of those three guys, I'd slide at back-up at both Guard spots. If McGlynn stays you could slide Thornton to back-up RT.) As for Tackle, I like Linkenbach. I think the majority of times we had good line play, Linkenbach was plugged-in somewhere along the line. I haven't enough of Sowell or Ziemba to comment on them. I do like Cleary Emmet as an underdog, but that's probably more hope than rationale. If all else fails, Thornton offers another option at tackle in case of injury.

Training camp is going to be an verrrrry interesting this year. A lot of depth chart spots up for grabs!

I would be happy to see Satele and McGlynn shown the door.

McGlynn is ok (ok) depth. 

Satele is terrible. i dunno why he wasn't cut.

    • Sorry, I didn't get any update in notifications, should have checked your profile to see if you have created any new post. Growing pains of being new here. I'd you have time in the morning, let's start.   With the first overall draft pick, Cincinnati Bengals select   Joe Burrow, QB, LSU    
    • @Nadine Please pin this thread for us. Thank you. 
    • Feels like we are going to play more pressman coverage 
    • With the draft fast approaching here is my one and only mock. I incorporated some trades in my mock this year because Ballard always seems to trade and I also think he will try to acquire more picks. My trades are reasonable and provide value.( I think)    Round 2: trade pick 34 to Browns for pick 41 and 115, select Denzel Mims, wr Baylor.    Round 2: trade pick 44 to Falcons for pick 47 and 119, select A.J. Terrell, cb Clemson.    Round 3: pick 75, Brycen Hopkins, te Purdue.    Round 4: pick 115, Calvin Throckmorton, ol Oregon.    Round 4: pick 119, Akeem Davis-Gaither, lb Appalachian St.    Round 4: pick 122, Trevis Gipson, de, Tulsa.    Round 5: pick 160, Parnell Motley, cb Oklahoma.    Round 6: pick 193, Terrell Burgess, s, Utah    Round 6: pick 197, Steven Gonzales, og, Penn St. Well, what do you think, I know the glaring omission in my draft is qb, but I just can't see spending a draft pick  on a player, regardless of who he may be, that doesn't have anymore potential than Chad Kelly. Lots of defense in my draft, and 2 o-linemen to try to soften the loss of Haeg. My favorite pick would be Motley, the dude can flat out play.  
    • Hey,  I'm sorry Archer,  I've been meaning to respond to your post, but life has been crazy the last few days...     You make an interesting point that I'd like to address.    And much of what I'm about to write I'm paraphrasing from an NFL.com article from earlier in the week,  so it's not just me saying what I'm about to say,  it's NFL people too...   The reason to delay the draft?   Optics,  how it will look to millions.   As I'm sure you know,  the worst of the Virus is expected to hit in Mid-April.  NFL execs are worried that the worst death toll numbers will be the headlines on every newscast,  on every newspaper around the country during that time.    How does it look if in 30 NFL cities,  the news anchors are talking about the days top story --- record numbers of Carona deaths,  and suddenly one says....    "Now here's Bob to tell us about team's newest draft choice!"   The optics would be horrible.   That's why many withing the NFL wanted this moved at least into May and hopefully out of the window of the worst virus news.    The twin headlines would be the worst.    But Goodell has ruled and I'm sure you noticed that he asked NFL Execs to stop talking about it in the press.    You don't often hear/read that from Goodell.   I hope Goodell is not making a terrible mistake.    We'll soon find out.   I know people are starving for some fun and good news,  but the timing couldn't be worse, and that's the reason to move it,  even if only two 2-3 weeks.    But that's not happening....   Again,  sorry for the delay in getting back to you....
