Romo is still getting killed. Cook looks like he is playing the center position while wearing roller skates. Free and Bernadeau look like they are being forced to play their positions wearing cement boots. Now Costa will regain his job once healthy so thats a plus, but I do not see how Leary or Parnell could be much worse than the staus quo.
Did you see Leary play in the pre season? No matter how bad the current guards are, Leary was worse. He was scary bad. I'm surprised he's still on the team.
Again, I have no trouble with other positions. I personally have high hopes for Cole Beasley. I like to see him play a lot more. He may not be Welker, but he might be another Amendola, and that's not bad. Small, quick, reads defenses well, good hands.
As for the offensive line, you can only put in guys when they are ready. Look no farther than the Eagles to see what happens when you have guys out there are aren't ready. But they are not doing it by choice. That;s is the one position where you need your best guys, even if they are not very good.
