        since i don't want to see Jon Martin naked out there, i now absolutely hope McKinnie isn't the mentor type

        But seriously... I just can not fathom how the team waited this long and came to the conclusion that this is the move to make.

        I just...

        I just...

        I just wonder about what's going on in Davie.

        It would be about like the Dolphins to have McKinnie on the inactive list the final 10 games of the season and leave Clabo and Martin in as the starters.

        i'm betting it's a conditional 7th with the possibility of a 6th based on snap counts played...but again desperate gms do desperate things

        Someone laced the stamps with Acid....Originally Ireland wanted to trade for a bear that can dance and sent out the request...Baltimore just assumed he meant McKinnie....In the end, everyone will be disappointed.

        This is a serious failure on Ireland's part. Just awful. Rolled he dice on the wrong guy, then trade for the other wrong guy. The only thing worse would have been trading for jake long, lol.

        The coaches also get blame.

        But hey, at least they are trying something!
        Oh yes, captain hindsight, I bet you knew Clabo was doomed from the beginning. Oh and that 7th round pick will just destroy this team in the long run......

        Awesome, we are moving on up and getting better, all we need is 64 more trades like this one, and we will be set.

        Maybe Philbin needs to do some toking on that bong too. He might come to his senses

        All I can do is laugh, man. Hey, we got nowhere to go but up on this OL, right? Maybe there's a huge dropoff between #65 and #66.

        Funny thing... When Clabo was signed, 75+% of the people here loved the move and thought Ireland was a genius... Now they all think Clabo sucks and Ireland needs to get fired.

        Now, McKinnie is here. 75+% of the people here hate the move... I guess he'll fix our o-line problems.

        That's very good reasoning, I'm not even joking.

        I didn't, but we all knew he was doomed after about week 3 and the FO did nothing... Waiting until things got real desperate to make any kind of move. Inexcusable.

        And they took some serious risks taking this approach with an unproven Martin at LT and a bargain basement vet at RT.

        In hindsight, trading a 3rd for Albert was the right move, especially considering the 3rd rounders have been injured since landing in Davie

        McKinnie, Clabo, Colombo. They're all the same

        I thought the Clabo signing was a good move. He was a pro bowler 2 years ago and last year he played well the last 3/4 of the year. At the very least, I thought he would be serviceable. But he is on pace to give up 21 sacks. Think about that... if the entire OL was playing that badly we would be on pace to give up 105 sacks just on the starting 5. That's unbelievable.

        Ireland is paid good money to know more about these things than I do.

        So Yeatman wouldn't do as well as Clabo at right tackle? Or Nate Garner? How bad must they both suck then?

        I never liked the Clabo signing, never liked going with martin at LT, and I sure as hell dont like this move. We are ****ed with McKinnie or Clabo, so might as well save a draft pick. I'd even move Jerry to RT or go with 6 OL before I make this trade.

        They had faith that during the bye, Clabo could put it together...gambled and loss.
