I can't speak for others, but I don't knee jerk. I've been saying since the beginning of the season that I don't want Long back. If Martin gets destroyed, oh well. The solution imo doesn't involve spending serious money on Long when he cannot be counted on to stay healthy. He breaks down every year. Other teams find good left tackles without committing a huge portion of their cap to it. We need to follow suit.
I disagree. LT's are hard to find. The problem with Jake is his salary. If he accepts a salary that is porportionate to his performancem them i would like to see him back. If he wants to be in the top 5 money wise, then let him go and start over with Martin and draft another tackle in the 3rd round next year.
