    I think it comes down to the fact that the best pass rushers are usually coming at the qb's blindside and the left tackle is going up against them. For that reason, right tackles usually don't need to be quite as athletic overall. I know the game is changing, though, and there are teams that can rush the passer in a variety of ways or move guys around for better matchups.

    Exactly... this is pretty much how I feel about it. I don't even subscribe to the notion that there's a debate to begin with... that debate was lost by the pro-Jake Long crowd a long time ago.

    I think he's been one of the most overrated players in the league since he got there. You wouldn't even have to call him by name for most people to know who you were talking about. Just address him as "John Abraham and Dwight Freeney's whippin' boy" and people would know exactly who you were talking about. They've owned him since day 1.

    There's numerous threads going back a long time where I stated giving Jake Long a bunch of money is the worst thing a team could do. This guy's 15 minutes is up...

    FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS have Martin rated as the 32 rated right tackle against the run
    we average 2.91 yards per rush behind Martin...We are the only team in the NFL
    that runs less than 3 yards a carry behind a right tackle
