Can't be mad at the signing.

Great move! Trueblood gives us a solid vet to contribute to the right side of our line, and some valuable insight on a rival's offense.

Trueblood is depth at best. Holmes was better than he was this preseason by far.

Trueblood is what he is. Pretty bad against speed rushers and all decent pass rushers, will take many stupid penalties, but he is an absolute mauler in the run game. As long as he's depth, he should be solid for you guys.

If Holmes continues his atrocious play, I see Trueblood starting by week three.

He's likely going to start as depth, but he'll push Holmes.

does anybody see him being a starter at RG? i know hes weak in pass pro but he could def help in the run game and Reynolds is jus not the answer.

No. And RT is a bigger concern than RG at the moment.

It's a good depth signing. I believe in Holmes, but if he isn't quite cutting it at least you have some experience to fall back on.

Love the signing. Not because he will start, but because behind Baker and Holmes we have UDFA Ryan Schraeder.

He isnt a very good player by any means, but if Holmes cant do his job early, he could potentially be a better player, and that might be all that we need.

Brick wall Can't we just have a guy do his job instead of getting another guy cut by another team to push him to do the job the other guy was drafted to do its a vicious circle!!!
