Fair enough.

 

But I think you are hoping against hope.  I see him out there on the field and immediately start saying Hail Mary's for the QB's health.

Friendly Reminder from TigerTown  

   Before we condemn CG because of his injury history remember that he was in Buffalo 

 

Methinks you are now officially grasping at straws to hold onto a poorly conceived point.

I don't mind him being on the roster and getting a chance to compete for a starting spot. What I mind is us going into the season thinking that he will suddenly switch it on and relying on him to be a competent starting tackle for us without even trying to address the position. We cannot afford to do that. Either get a more proven commodity through trade of FA or a higher end prospect(Connor Williams if he falls to the second) and let them compete. If by some miracle Clark prevails, I'm good with that. I care that we have a good tackle to protect Luck, I don't care if it's Clark or Haeg or whoever we acquire this off-season, as long as they get the job done.

He was a known project and Grigson took the risk.  Ballard has nothing to do with it and needs to worry about getting the best player in the lineup.  Clark has shown he is not good at RT.  He will get a shot at OG and RT in camp but if he is cut, it is because he is bad.

Last word on Mewhort was that he was still contemplating retirement.  His knees are going to get any better.

I think if Mewhort was  retiring he would have  announced it  officially by now!

Maybe, maybe not.  Joe Thomas is also reportedly still trying to decide.  Plus, it's not uncommon for veterans dealing with injuries to wait and see what their market is before deciding to retire.

If we could land Williams or Guice at the top of the 2nd I'd be completely out of my mind.  Williams could play RT or G... man the dreams.

    • Oh, the players already know that, regardless of who starts jn The present, past, future, they are well aware JB isn't a true #1 leader at the qb going forward.  Stop gap? Sure... If there's an endgame.
    • This list does not fit the narrative you are trying to put forward.  Only 2 would even be close and even they had chances.    Browns and Redskins don't even count; they are dysfunctional franchises who had plenty of chances but couldn’t get out of their own way.   Dolphins, Titans, and Bears all could have had good QBs if not for trying for retreads, sticking with a player too long (Mariota, Tannehill), and/or missing when they had good players available to draft (Ryan, Mahomes, Watson). Also jury still out on Trubisky.   Vikings and Broncos have not had the best luck with QBs lately, but they have also lingered in the mediocre to good record zone a lot which doesn't help them getting a high draft pick for QB . They also got a few good seasons out of retreads which helped them in the short term, but not the long term. Although in the Broncos case I am sure they will take their SB with PM.   I will give you the Jets, they have had some bad luck. When they did have good picks there wasn’t much available; although jury still out on Darnold (also they could have taken Lamar Jackson). Buffalo also had some bad luck for a few years, but they also blew their chance to draft Mahomes (though Allen may still turn into something).   During the last few years all these teams have had periods where they had a player/or players  as good or better than JB and it didn't amount to much other than keeping them from a top draft pick. If you don't have an very good - elite QB you are just playing the lottery hoping for one of those all the stars perfectly aligned runs that rarely happen.
    • Thanks for this.   My favorite part is his tackle at 5:30.  
    • Not a big deal.     Brissett puts fans in an odd position.   He is almost the definition of average.  His QB rating is average.  His yards per game is below average but his INT % is above average.  So I can understand supporters and detractors.  
    • Sorry, must not have scrolled up enough and accidentally grabbed it from where you quoted 2006bestcoltsever.
