    Think he'll stay and not demand too much $? I know he'd like to

      I'd sign Fluker and Jones. Not sure about Pugh with his injury history.

        MacKenzie, Seubert, O’Hara all FAs. I expect a similar approach because clearly the draft can not be counted upon

          Think about Tiki Barber also.

          The last complete back we had. Can run, catch and pass block. Bradshaw was like that but too oft injured to be consistent like Barber.

            It was a great unit all around. To think we went in a span of what? 10 years from being arguably the best o line in the league to one of the worst.

              I wouldn't say great all-around. They played great complimentary football. The play calling fit them well for a while. It also helps when you have blocking tight ends, not to mention a 250 lb running back chipping out the backfield.

                I took it for granted that the Line would always be better then most in the NFL.

                  It's unfortunate that Eli played with Tiki for only a few years. People forget that Tiki had a great shot at being MVP in 2005 if it weren't for Barber's third twin up in Seattle. Tiki imo was easily a top 5 player his last 2 seasons in the league.

                    I think it's more like: "God, I miss [the days where we had serviceable lineman that gave the QB time to throw]" As I recall, this board wasn't too happy with Kareem McKensie during his last year or so. Same with Jumbo Elliott.

                    Not for nothing - I think Eli probably misses him too.

                      I really liked Kevin Boothe, always seemed to step up when called upon.

                        Versatile player, could play guard and center in a pinch.
                        Was a smart player too, went to Cornell.

                          Bradshaw, all heart.
                          Barber, gutless, heartless quitter with a fumbling problem.

                          Barber shouldn't even be mentioned in the same post as Bleeding Blue Bradshaw.

                            Sarcasm? Trolling? Ignorance?

                              Serious.
                              Nope.
                              If you announce in mid season you are retiring because the coach who made you has taken your love of the game, you are a heartless, gutless quitter. Super Bowl won the very next season!

                                He suited up which many here don't seem to be capable of. He was not a star but he showed up and played competently. Someone like him would fill 2 or 3 slots on the current OL.
                                No one remembers who came in second.
