I saw plenty, and I've seen plenty from his snaps last season.
Have we beaten them yet at OUR stadium? Better bring everything they got. But yeah, I think they're ready.
Keeping my fingers crossed...
Exataly... Just need to find a swing tackle now because Weems isn't ready, I think he has potential and a year on the PS could be good for him but that doesn't help us now
I agree with you here as well, and Free is a better fit as a RG than anyone else we have (unless) Leary played there
yea, they are a quivering and bought new boots for the occasion, to be fair and a tad bit of reality, Eli just tweeted, Cowboys dont scare me, and to be fair, he doesnt have to worry til it happens.
As it would any rational person. Doesn't mean it won't work but it is sending universal alarm bells in a pitch that is undetectable by our in house Professional OL Optimists.
Here's another way to look at the right side of our OL: we know that both Free and Parnell are capable of terrible play. That doesn't mean that they won't work out. They may benefit from Callahan's coaching. They may generally benefit from the switch. They may wind up being above average or even quite good. These are things we are about to find out.
But we know that they are both capable of terrible play. We've witnessed it with both, especially Free. I'm sure some will quibble over the word 'terrible' with Parnell but we've all seen him play poorly, at the very least.
And I've seen Payton Manning throw 6 picks in a game. Can't say I see your point.
Smith - Leary - Frederick - Bernadeau - Free
This or just swap Free out with Parnell if you really think Parnell is your future at that position.
All I've heard is that something is still bothering him (Parnell)
I'd rather get the guy out there who's not a step slow because of a bum leg or something.
So correct me if I'm wrong, but we're likely going into game 1 with a OL combo that haven't even played together?
Of course you don't. Nothing better encapsulates the blindly optimistic perspective than this comparison, which seeks to equate one terrible day by a future Hall of Fame QB with full seasons of terrible by a mostly JAG-level player so as not to have to think about the possibility that Free and Parnell might not be as good as you are mentally penciling them in to be so that you can look forward to a championship season.
But, by all means, go ahead merrily hopping along, oblivious to decades of sub-mediocre play. You seem to be enjoying yourself and it's just a game. Meanwhile, I wake up crotchety. You'll probably live longer.
Meanwhile, despite my yammering on about the right side of the OL, I really am kind of sort of optimistic about this season. At least more so than I have been in a few years. I just think that if things don't work out this season, the two most likely culprits are injuries and the right side of the OL and I don't think anything else is even close (maybe our DTs).
Just like last year
I thought you said that alarmed pitch was supposed to be undetectable. I liked it better when it was undetectable.
It is undetectable to the overly optimistic. You're hearing it now? That's a good sign. There's room for you still in the terminally crotchety and pessimistic ward ...
not only that but 4 of them haven't started a real nfl game at their position
