GMs don't do direct primary scouting. They coordinate the scouts who are on the staff. Among many other things.

Hey guys don't worry, we got Phil Costa back in the lineup. He's starting against the Ravens because Cook got injured but even so, this gives our true starting C the chance to come back and claim his rightful spot that he's excelled at.

He will proceed to have an amazing game against Ngata this Sunday and will not yield a sack.

I sent this to Slam in a PM...

Quote:
I think that our team is 2-3 O-linemen away from a big playoff run.

We are set at LT with Smith, he is only going to get better with age/experience on the left side.

We seem to be set for a few years with Nate Livings at LG. He has been pretty darn good.

Costa/Cook suck out loud at C. This position has to be adressed either via a quality FA, a trade for a veteran or a high draft pick.

Burnindeuce is exactly what we have been calling him. A night of gorging on spicy food and drinking Mexican water would produce more pleasant results than he has. This spot has to be adressed either with a quality FA, trade or the draft.

Then, we have Doug Free. I really don't know what to make of him. He seemed really good at RT when playing for Colombo. Then he moved to LT and was pretty good. But last season, he stunk and seemed to be better suited to the RT spot. Now, I can't tell if he is still having issues or if Burnindeuces deficiencies are causing him to have trouble. If we replace the LG with a quality player, will it make Free better? Or is he beyond salvaging? I think he is worth 1 more year with a new LG beside him.

Smith, Livings, New C, New RG, Free

That definitely is doable in 1 offseason, even with Jerry Jones still involved. One free agent and a draft pick in the first 3 rounds and you have it covered. It is doable, but will it be done? That's the question.

If the Gs and Free still struggle, the Boys should consider moving Free inside as he lacks the lateral movement to pass protect. He may be better off working in a more confined space and where he could better use his athleticism on traps and pulls.

Its a solid point. I have given it some thought as well. I just wonder if he can "anchor" against DTs.

He might be too tall to play guard. I feel like the DTs can get right up under him and drive him backwards

Free's only 6'6. Nicks is 6'5. I doubt that extra inch would be a big difference.

Really? I thought he was more in the neighborhood of 6'7, maybe even 6'8. If he is only 6'6, then he might be able to move inside to guard. The guy to ask is JWingate though, I know that he is scouting our own players right now

Yup, only 6'6", at least according to just about every site out there. Laughing

Hey, he looks a lot bigger on TV. I'm as tall as Doug Free Very Happy

I have never played a snap of organized football in my life, and all of my friends tell me to try to walk onto the UMass football team just because of how big I am.

There are a lot of OGs in the NFL that are listed between 6'4" and 6'8".
