If that isn't razor thin I don't know what it.
    Like I mentioned earlier, I'm sure JR thought that Petrus was going to build on the 2011 season, not completely regress and crap the bed like he did. So, that would have given us Brewer as a back-up tackle, Locklear/Diehl as swing T/G, and Petrus and Cordle as swing G/C. Plus the rookies. Considering the cap space we had to work with this past offseason, I don't know if there was much else he could have done, especially considering they were banking on Brewer and Petrus stepping up this season.

      Phillip died? That is so sad, what happened?

        i find it amusing you guys are hammering JR for being thin at the OL spot but when he did find a good backup that was 'luck'.. you guys are never happy.. if we would have offloaded all our cap space and money on 2 or 3 more replacements and never used them.. then this thread would have been about how JR sucks because he wasted all the organization's money on a bunch of OL that weren't needed..

        we had a small amount of OL.. we didn't need them.. this provided cap space and money for other positions.. i cant see this as any other thing as a WIN for JR.. luck.. prayer.. devine intervention.. whatever you want.. but JR made it happened and it work.. give the man his due..

          Well if that was the calculation it was a bad one. Petrus never played much so to expect him to play at a starting NFL level was a stretch. Brewer, Cordle the same thing. In the NFL, if you can't run you can't pass. We got by on Eli making quick decisions and getting it off quickly. Play action became less effective and that was because Beatty is average at best, same for Boothe and Baas. Snee is above average and our right tackles are below average. Backups are terrible and that is no place for a GM to leave his team going into a season. Rmember, we did what we did with minimal injuries on the OL by NFL standards. That is why I say we got lucky.
          No one remembers who came in second.

            JR made it happen? Made what happen? He made it so we didn't have a lot of injuries on the OL? This makes little sense.

              no.. he calculated how many OL we would need and in the end he was right.. is that too hard to comprehend?
