    You must be joking. GARNER made the team as CAREY's "back-up" at RT; because of MIAMI's injury problems, he played RG and LGand did pretty well; and when J GROVE and J BERGER went down in the 1st Half of the same game, he played C on literally 2 minutes' notice. Remember what happened? The 1st snap: fumbled. After that? PERFECT in every way, including "reads" and calling out blocking assignments.

    Don't make up your facts as you go along. Someone will remember, and then you look like the Horse's Patoot.

Incognito could then be cut, Long can be extended, then Murtha and Jerry battle it out for the RT spot. John Beck could win behind that line!!!
    I've got another solution, though yours isn't bad. How about this: GET A TOPSHELF F/A G, play him at LG, and move INCOGNITO (who is solid) back to RG where he belongs! Move CAREY back to RT and have a competition for the starting RT position between CAREY, MURTHA and JERRY. The best 2 (i/m/o, probably MURTHA and JERRY) are the starting RT and 1st back-up T, and the 3rd one (i/m/o CAREY) backs up T and G, w/GARNER backing up G and C. Your starting OL is then LONG, a solid F/A G, POUNCEY, INCOGNITO, and the winner of MURTHA/JERRY. That leaves the MURTHA/JERRY loser to back up both Ts, CAREY to back up RG and RT, and GARNER to back up both Gs and C. Once the late cuts begin, I'd look for a G who is a solid "aging veteran with a little gas left in his tank", who still wanted to play football. I'd offer him decent money (nothing huge), and let him know that if he chose to try coaching when he hangs up his cleats, he'd get 1st shot at a job as "assistant OL Coach". After all, salary paid to coaches doesn't count against the "cap".

    That way, we can use our Draft picks on positions other than OL.

    QED!

    P.S.: ALL of this could've been done LAST season, and the COLUMBO/CAREY fiasco would NEVER have happened! STUPID ROSS!!! When will he ever learn? WINNING fills seats and sells warm beer & greasy hot dogs at ridiculously high prices!!! NOT some celebrity wiggling her a** and jiggling her "hooters".

    we do need one, but good teams build their lines with mid round picks. 2 high first rounders used on lineman is already too much. If we focus all of our assets on the line, we suffer elsewhere. Hence why we have not had a te or number 2 receiver for years.

    Why do so many like Murtha so much here. As far as our back ups go, he's shown much less than Jerry and Garner imo

    Just a thinking point ....

    Best to draft the expensive positions, as they can be paid on the 4-year rookie wage scale.

    This allows more cap money to fill other needs at less-expensive positions. Just good football sense & economics.

    If you examine our drafts from the Tuna years ... he pretty much followed this idea ... I've even commented on it several times.

    O-Linemen are expensive!! Just like DL & CB ... the rarity of good ones drives the market!!

    I'm 99.99% concerned about QB, I'm willing to worry about other positions after doing all we can to get a QB!!! I want some punkin' chuckin' !!

    I trust Philbin and the new line coach to get it right.

    I hope Sparano takes him to the Jets. Wake would have Sanchez on his back at least 6 times next year then
