    as everybody loves to jump on Omar, the idea of pushing him to RT after the season if Jake is not resigned has been discussed and been supported by guys like CK, Boomer, Ben Volin, Jeff Darlington, and guys in the VIP section. It's a plausible idea. He has the feet to do it.

    I thought he was going to be our Rt this season before we drafted Martin I think he's better suited there myself

    Hold on a quick second...Many (myself included) wanted to see Jerry at RT after Long's injury this year. The genesis of that idea though was to look at Samadu at RG a replacement for Jerry next year. In 2011, Jerry held up well on the edge when Long was hurt and many figured he could get through the end of the year better than Nate Garner. However, Garner has proven to be legit.

    I never thought that Jerry was a longterm answer at RT. I give Jim Turner, Mike Sherman and Joe Philbin a ton of credit by going with Nate Garner. Garner has been very solid at RT. I have always liked Garner as a reserve because he can swing to many spots along the line. The last few games have shown that he could compete for the starting spot next year and at the very least be a valuable back up.

    Although we've improved the last couple weeks, our interior run blocking has been AWFUL most of the season. How many 3rd and 1's up the gut have we blown? Too many to count. It has been improving the last couple weeks, but I still think Jerry is a below average run blocker.

    Omar prefers to watch line play...and that's telling.

    The only reason we've improved the last 2 weeks with our run blocking is playing the #31 and #32 rated defensive teams against the run

    as a starter was almost half of what we paid Murtha.

    Depending what he wants it just might be a good upgrade for the 28 year old
    I totally agree ... but we'd need to pay significantly more than New England or he'd never move from that ideal situation to a rebuilding team.

    As for Jerry, I've never been a fan. He's lazy. For a guy with his natural athletic ability to be poor at run blocking is astounding. Clearly he's not a zone blocking scheme type of OL, but wow, if he is THAT bad opening running lanes and his strong suit is allowing 14 hurries, I'd say his days are clearly numbered. At least Incognito sticks up for his teammates and is good in the locker room ... Jerry doesn't even provide that. I will not be surprised if the OL is where we make an impact in FA. Other than guys like Greg Jennings or Jason Babin, I don't see a lot of good fits for us in FA. But, our OL will definitely be different than this season's.
