    Until Tyron was drafted, Free was slated for LT because he has great feet. He is not a "power" player but is more of a technician type blocker. Normally teams want "power" players at RT.

    I agree and the kicker is Free is having a very good camp. I don't like bad play from any player but if a guy is showing he is turning things around and improving then what is the beef? If Free is doing the job great but this non sense of pet cats people have or not liking a guy based on past performace while overlooking current improvement is just silly

    If this is as closeas it gets, then it just doesn't get very close. 'Finesse' is. Not code for 'wuss.' It's not code for anything. It means 'finesse.' If that's got you disgusted, in my opinion you're badly overreacting, and I'm probably not going to be able to change your opinion in such a state. So, we can agree to disagree.

    I will say that I agree we're dangerously rolling the dice at OT again this year. I don't like it, either. It's a risk to get Free playing t an acceptable level, his backup is a bigger risk, and then we're out of options. One OT injury ande we're resorting to the waiver wire, potentially looking for someone with starting snaps.

    Don't think it was a coach, but Jerry during Hard Knocks.

    Have you ever heard a tackle be referred to as "finesse"?

    I was gonna defend Romo from the baby jokes, but it IS funny.

    Here's mine - "they replaced my baby with a slippery one and I dropped him"

    why on earth would you like this idea?

    Smith, an unproven 22 year old LT with potential.
    Leary, a 2nd year undrafted guard with no knees
    Fred, an unproven rookie that was drafted far too high.
    Arkin, hasn't played in a single regular season game, and has been considered absolute garbage up until this camp.
    Free, a "finesse" RT that lacks power and speed to be anything above average.

    I like the future that Smith and Fred give this O-line, but that's the only thing I like.

    That *does* make them harder to kick.

    The jokes are all tongue in cheek. Romo's the man.

    This isn't negative. This is reality.
    2 out of the 5 people have futures on that o-line. The rest is patch made.

    As are some of the best offensive lines in the league. All lines aren't filled with players of pedigree like the 49ers.

    But you knew that right. Right?

    To be fair, I disagree with virtually everything you said.

    With the exception of Smith and Fitz, what's the other three's trade value?

    Um, I have no idea, nor do I see why that matters.
