When a player or coach is fined, does he choose which charity receives the money?

I do not see where the faith in Edoga comes from.

The team that drafted him flat out cut him, despite their own offensive line needs.

And the team that claimed him last year didn’t care to make an offer to keep him above the near minimum deal he agreed to with the Cowboys.

I think any faith in Edoga is misplaced.
I see your logic and can’t blame you. But in his snaps at LG he wasn’t bad at all. He played a lot of LT which he didn’t do well.

If they see something they believe they can fix technique wise it’s not too off to think that they can get reliable LG play from him. But yes I do like the Tyron-Tyler-Tyler-Martin-Steele lineup a lot. I’m really high on Waletzko and think he can be a good swing.

I’m sure you’re one of those who thinks we’re perfectly fine at RB. You’re probably licking your chops thinking about what a jag like Ronald Jones could do. Lol Or maybe you’re content just running Pollard into the ground 20 times a game and allow him to pick up all the tough yards.
No, I’m not.

I am concerned about the running game. It seems that every year the FO disregards some position that is critical to their success. For what seemed an eternity that was the safety position.

So I agree with the premise of your post. I’m really concerned with Prescott throwing more than he has to.

The projected offensive line according to what he’s seeing in practice is a bad one in my opinion. NOT any ‘Best 5’ in their best position that’s for sure.

:thumbdown:
If healthy, our best 5 includes Tyron, Tyler Smith, Biadasz, Martin and Steele. PERIOD. Can be some argument over positions, but I still think it should be that order across the line: Tyron - LT, Tyler S - LG, Biadasz - C, Martin - RG, Steele - RT. Moving Steele to G, and Tyron to LT is just too much movement if they are healthy.

translation ..... jones boys looking for the cheapest kicker they can find, who looks decent.
This K situation is really ridiculous. Kickers score more than anyone on the team. We need to have a solid one on the team. If some free agent signee can win the job from an established vet then so be it. But it really, really sends a bad signal to the team that they aren't making any kind of investment at this moment.

I'd just move Steele to LG - assuming he can. He's such a mauler in the run game he should be fine, so I think your best 5 is: Tyler Smith - Steele - Biadasz - Martin - Tyron Smith
This moves two players. One from left to right, and one where a position change + a side change is involved.

Seems to me the cleanest and best approach is:

Tyron S - his historic LT position.
Tyler S - the position he started with at camp last year, LG
Biadasz - C
Martin- RG
Steele - RT

The only "change" moves Tyler one slot over, where he started last camp.

+1. This really isn't that hard. The number of people trying to come up with an alternative where half the players change position is ridiculous. Also, that line is really good.

The problem comes when Tyron gets injured. Its an easy shift to Tyler / ??? / Biadasz / Martin / Steele but you now have a potentially big issue at LG which is what a lot of people feared.
