      So I'm assuming McKinnie will be playing LT, since he's never played the right side before?

      Should've pulled the trigger on the Branden Albert trade. Then we wouldn't be having this discussion.

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.
      you seem to forget that every member here is a fantasy football GM and there's no way that A gm like Ireland knows more then them.
      Not defending Ireland or praising him, just hate the fact most people on this board think they could do Any GM job better then the guys actually doing it

      The time to get McKinnie was before the bye-week, so he could practice for a week. In all likelihood, McKinnie won't be up to full-speed until we're 3-5. (Well, McKinnie's version of 'full speed').

      Also, we'd have time to evaluate the situation. Now, it's a leap of faith with McKinnie this week.

      At 6'8" 360, McKinnie can play 3 positions at the same time. He officially becomes the largest player we've ever had on the roster.

      But then the majority of posters would of cried about giving up a #2 and paying his salary. You know how that works here.

      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
      I think it's good timing, times aren't desperate either, we're 3-3 and the grass is still green. The best choice was to see if Clabo picked it up, 6 games is a good amount of time to see if any progress is made or how much is made. If we cut players after 1-2 bad games then this team isn't going to be very successful.

      He also has his own gravitational pull

      The way to go was to get the guy that Baltimore is starting this week, not the guy who lost his job to that guy. LoL Ireland and even more, LoL @ us because Ireland gets paid.

      So, who was cut to make room for Jumbo McKinnie

      What i don't understand is maybe we are moving to a power scheme instead a Zone block one because Mckinnie is not a zone blocking type.

      Are you kidding, by the end of the day the aquas will have this as a "brilliant move" to save the season...

      I thought it was a second but if it was a third then he must've thought that Dallas Thomas was just as good as Albert because he got that guy. Thomas has just been awful...I dont know about his future but it hasnt been pretty so far.

      Even if it was a second rounder he brought in an injured Jamar Taylor which is not showing much so far and so that guy was better than Albert too I guess, in his mind. I know the Chiefs wanted our 42nd which went to the Raiders for Jordan but he could've sweetened the deal somehow.

      Truth be told we don't run as many zone blocking plays as people around here suggest

      LOL...We can only hope, the name McKinnie striked such fear in me, but after watching Clabo in action, I have a new definition of fear.

      Will someone tell me why we didn't try to get OT Eugene Monroe in a trade? Was Ireland sleeping on this or what?
