I'm already imagining the barrage coming my way, but here's the thought process- Jake Long is a terminator in cleats, a destroying machine. They could put him at Guard and I'd be happy.


Jonathan Martin has GREAT feet and athletecism, a natural LT. I don't care about this LT/RT bulls****. If Martin pans out as I think he will, he's better suited for the left side. Put Jake Long at RT and let him destroy people. I'm not worried about the money issue LT vs. RT- Jake Long is an All-Pro and future Hall of Famer- get the best five out there at the best possible positions and go f****** destroy some people.

Sure, if Tannehill suddenly starts throwing left handed. Otherwise, no.

This year, next year, 5 years from now?

I don't see Martin at LT for at least 2-3 years.

You don't move a pro bowl LT to right tackle for a 2nd round pick tackle unless he is at the twilight of his career or devastated by leg injuries.

Jake is much better suited to play TE.

And Zach Thomas should've been a safety.

Haha dammit! I was about to suggest Jake to safety! No rb could get through him, around him yes.

You don't pay a right tackle $12 million a year. You would be better off trading Jake Long than sticking him at right tackle. Do you really think he is going to take right tackle money when he signs his next contract when he can make the case that he is one of the top three left tackles in the league?

I guess the Dolphins drafted Tannehill to play wide receiver.

can jake throw the ball? I mean he'd be a monster to bring down at Quarterback. then we shift Ryan out to WR and let the Long to tannehill connection commence!

If Jake goes to the right side, defenses will just put their best rusher on the blind side. Not good.

Why not just destroy people on the left side ala Shaun Alexander behind Walter Jones?

Jake long would make a awesome FB.

I'm sure there that I've heard a worse idea, I just can't think of it right now.

I won't argue about any money issue. I won't argue about athleticism as both players Long and Martin are impressive athletes.
But let me express about offensive line foundations. An offensive line must serve for two simple tasks: protect the passer and create holes for running attack.
First the o-line must protect the passer in the best way, buying time and keeping defenders as busy as possible, so the QB can find a receiver while he follows his assigned route.
On the other hand an offensive line must split the defensive line in order to create a path for running backs. There o-liners must switch positions, unbalancing the line, place the defender on the wrong situation, sacrificing some space but moving the defender to certain angle.
With that in mind, to protect the passer, a tackle must move as fast as possible to push a DE/OLB and guide him to search the largest path to get close to the passer, while both guards and center will try to help each other to block strong DT's away of the QB. With right handed passers, left tackle represents he's protecting the blind side, where the QB has little chance to react, so you need to add as much time as possible. At right side you have more help, because the QB can watch the rushers and move away, so RT is less complicated. Also stronger and faster pass-rushers use the blind side to get a chance to go for the passer, so coaching staff must be sure that your best man is covering the LT spot.
Jonathan Martin has very long arms, one of the first things to watch in a tackle, but his feet mechanics is merely fine and he isn't as strong as Jake Long. So the best usage of both guys is to place Long at LT and Martin on RT. You can bet that with some training and after some playing experience, Martin could switch sides when Long's play level climbs down because of some injury or with age.

Sure!!
But what about switching Tannehill and Long, Long could be a complete threat using his super strong arms to throw the football and running when receivers can't lose their coverage. Ryan Tannehill is starting his NFL carer, so it doesn't matter where he plays.

Obviously most don't know that Jake is a natural RT and started that way at Michigan until Lloyd Carr switched him. Aside from the monetary reasons, Martin is not nearly as strong as Jake and with the two together should play the right side. No doubt Martin will fill in at LT if Jake is hurt.

I am not at all convinced that they won't retool the line to get the athletic lineman Philbin likes instead of the brawn that Parcells and Sparano wanted. I don't believe Ireland when he says he wants Jake Long in the future and if they do elect to trade Jake, they have a very nice replacement in Martin.

I would not be opposed to Martin at LT and Jake @ RT. Though, not this year.

If Jake moves on or is moved on due to monetary reasons than Martin s/b able to make the transition.

After Fleener, Martin was the 2nd Stanford player I wanted the phins to acquire.
