Getting rid of jake long was a smart decision.

If we had Jake I am sure we would be 1 more up in the win column this year. With that said... it is better for this franchise long term if we can find an answer to replace him and the mess we currently have at the tackle positions in this offseason.
The huge issue is instead of having a capable person at RT we have one of the worst players in the league. Part of this league is having capable players at these spots. You can have a ****ty DT, OLB, SS/FS, WR, TE. Those are spots you can hide. But if one/two of your tackles suck... you will pay.
