    As for Legursky, I'd rather it was Essex who gets punted ... Legursky is a better G/C in my opinion ...
    It's hip to T-Squared ...

    I'm not so sure about him being a better guard, but he sure as hell is at center. He is actually a pretty decent center to have as a backup. I don't really like any of them at guard though, so I'll agree that I want Legursky more by the logic that he can play multiple positions.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    This should be the O-Line from day one, better be by middle of year. Goodbye Starks(love the guy, but time has come) and C. Scott.

    I would actually rather they sign Max as a tackle rotation and punt Legursky. DeCastro is athletic enough to back up at Center, and Essex can play there in a pinch. Throw in Foster, and the Line has great starters and very good depth.
    to me thats ideal. I would like to see chris scott compete for a guard spot, if theres a steeler i know the least about i think its him....just almost a complete unknown. I do know its do or die for him.

    I like gilbert a lot, i have since day one...i love his ability to play tough through injuries and his recovery was excellent for a rookie tackle after he got beat a little bit.....but adams is so ideal for LT, and i thought gilbert was but on paper adams looks like a left tackle a bit more

    i think its pretty wide open for these young guys to win spots....not sure adams wins day 1, but eventually or due to injury i could see him launched into a starting role. i would like to see them make jonathan scott take a pay cut and backup the RT, cause as much as i loathe him i didnt mind him in that role. Legs is a good backup center and a less than servicable backup guard...i dont mind him on the roster, just not in a starting role.

    I would doubt they bring starks back, and i think essex and chris scott should battle it out for backup guard (if scott cant compete for a starting guard spot)

    Do we really think that tomlin and haley will pull the trigger and move colon to gaurd? I really feel like Colon is getting paid way too much for them to just sit him behind a rookie and a second year player. As long as Adams and Decastro can get familiar with the offence and really makes some strides in OTA's and preseason the ideal line would be Adams - Decastro - Pouncey - Colon- Gilbert. Or even swap gilbert and colon at the start of the season and see what happens. With that we have O-line depth unlike last year where we had to resign Max and still only had 5 dressed at different times in different games. The only the that I doubt is if they will really move Colon inside.

    i do not think he outright loses his RT job from day 1. He may be a candidate to get traded, he may be a good RT all year, and he may move to guard....his fate relies on 2 things, him staying healthy and how the young guys perform....if they show they are meant to be the tackles i think he gets moved to guard. Hes the second best guard on the roster imo

    Legs is much to valuable by simply being versatile to be jettisoned. In a pinch Legs can play either Center or Guard and be a fullback in short yardage and goal line situations.

    I don't see Legs going anywhere.
