    Probably not.


    We cannot seem to catch a break.

    sadly I think we got the only one that was really a serious upgrade to what we are stuck with now

    Any guard that is a free agent at this point likely isn't in good enough shape to contribute in a meaningful manner.

    It will be interesting to see if they decide to kick Free inside this week, and start Parnell at RT. With Leary's knees being an issue, this may actually be the better move, and allow Bernadeau to replace Leary if it came to it.

    I think Free has played too well at RT to move him

    What does this mean? Another example:

    Vince Wilfork
    Jared Mayo
    Seb Vollmer

    All out for the year...

    Good teams have depth.

    The key is to get the five best linemen out there. The question is whether Parnell at RT is better than Bernadeau at RG.

    Tony does better with outside pressure than interior, so I think Free to G is the best move.

    And even if they don't have depth... injuries are piling up for many teams.

    It is what it is.

    I am wondering if the easy camps mandated by the new CBA has anything to do with the seemingly greater incidences of injuries this year? And I recall hearing that the time spent by trainers with players has been cut back as well.

    Many have pointed out that possibility. Seems very possible.

    I think that there is a lot of validity to this.

    They already got him, Arkin remember? Because this staff sees something nobody else in the league sees despite a dearth O Linemen.

    Thats a bad example. They have a HOF coach and QB...not to mention the fact that they've only beaten one decent team. Their wins are against Buf, Mia, NYJ, TB, and ATL...with the good W against the Saints.

    The best we can do right now is either Arkin or Ray Dominguez from the practice squad to replace Waters and serve as Bernadeu's backup.

    As long as free, Fredbeard, and Smith are playing well and remain healthy, it shouldn't be too much of a problem. The coaches and Romo might have to make some adjustments in the game plan. I hope we would incorporate more quick throws, screens, flats, rollouts, etc.

    Looking at the available list, you're looking at the likes of Ryan Lilja, Jake Scott, Rex Hadnot, Eugene Amano, Ramon Harewood. Not exactly top of the line fixes here.
