    WTF Even if Long walks, we BETTER not take a LT in the first round

    I know this doesn't matter but Walter has the Dolphins taking a LT in round one and then a DT in round 2. I will go insane if Ireland does that. Martin can stay at LT and they can get a RT in free agency or draft one in round 3. As far as DT, if we keep Starks which I think we must then there's no need to draft one, specially in the 2nd round. This is what scares me about keeping Ireland. He's bound to do something like that.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Agreed. However, you still need to have an effective offensive line.

    Draft a whole bunch of offensive skill players...

    I've had enough of our mediocrity on that side of the ball.

    I saw no difference in the performance of our offensive line without Long - sorry for all the Long fans out there but it's true. Even if Martin missed some assignments heck that's what Long been doing all damn season at 12 million while Martin does it at a fraction of that contract.

    Heck Garner did a decent job too. I say we draft a guard and a tackle though, somewhere in the 2nd-4th round. We could use some depth there, and we need to replace Incognito's overrated ass.

    Whats it gonna be? Bitch about signing Long or bitch about drafting his replacement?

    Offer Long an 8-9 mil contract or just let him walk. Got to be some kind of compensation if we let him walk with a few other starters.
    Sign Smith (Avg. contract), Starks, Hartline

    Dwayne Bowe and a ZBS G in FA

    1.Tyler Eifert- Total TE who can help with the new T should we go that route
    2. Poyer/Trufant
    2b. LT/or Baccarri Rambo
    3. DE
    3a. Ryan Swope- can play outside or in

    Got to have power in this offense but if you think you can find starting tackles in the 4th/fifth round, its not likely. We might have to get someone in FA which is costly as well.

    Get an impact player in round 1. Move Martin over to LT and draft a RT in round 2. Problem solved.

    Yeah I'm tired of constantly seeing us draft OL in the early rounds. No matter how many we draft it just doesn't seem to give us a dominating OL. Let's go with skill players offense or defense I don't care let's get the best player available.

    Can I just be the first person to say Cornfed in a Finheaven Oline thread.
    The way Jeff Ireland took a GM's dream worth of cap space and draft picks and made the team worse in borderline miraculous.

    I will rage so ****ing hard if we draft another offensive lineman in the first round. WE NEED TO ADDRESS THE WR POSITION.
