    Becton let up 3 sacks today and was later pulled. This is not a good sign for the O line. I know it has been a while since he played but I was expecting a little bit more from him. I know the trade for Rodgers was needed but moving down two spots on the draft cost us a tackle which in retropsect looks to be a costly mistake.

    It’s not so much that any one particular move cost us. But not trying to get a better tackle in here was certainly a bad move.

    Rolling into the year with often injured and bad pass protector in Becton, 84 year old Duane Brown and shaky Max Mitchell is scary.

    If Becton sucks, the best solution imo is to play AVT at right tackle, start Tippmann at center, and move McGovern to right guard.

    May be. Don’t know how it will end, but this is a little overreaction based on very limited data. Becton will have to trust his knee with unlimited motion, forward and lateral, before he sees the starting role. So far, partially by his own volition and partially by design, the extent of exposure is limited. The D meantime, is far ahead of the OL with unrestricted moves.

    Saw some vid on Becton. That is one HUGE KNEE BRACE the young man is wearing. Not sure just how much mobility he's gonna have with that thing on.

    He wasn't pulled because he gave up the sacks. He is on a "pitch count." He's hasn't played in two years and is coming back from injury. They're trying to keep him healthy while he shakes off the rust. If he is still struggling in a month, then I'll worry, but it's way too early to even think about that.

    Also, Saleh said that Becton doesn't fully trust his knee yet, so he's not going all out. He's being careful and judicious in his movements.

    I disagree. McGovern sucks at OG. The worst year or two of his career was when he played OG in Denver. He even admits that he's a better C than OG. I'm not sure I even want him on the team. I sure don't want him starting at OG. Start Schweitzer, Colon,Turner at RT, anyone but McGovern.

    It's sad, isn't it? We have become so accustomed to not being able to have nice things or for things to go wrong for us that we are constantly looking for trouble and/or panicking at the first sign of trouble or struggle.

    I think It's far too early to give up on the kid.. He's got himself into good shape, he Is working hard. He hasn't been actively participating In football for two years. New offense, time away from football, injury scare, etc....

    They are just getting back Into the swing of It all. He deserves time to build up confidence In that knee, to shake off the rust, and time to find himself again.

    He deserves a chance, If they give up on him now, that would be absurd. IMO

    He hasn't played in a year, is coming off a major injury and has a whole new body with his weight loss. Reading too much into his performance this far before the season is just as misguided as thinking that some unknown who catches a few big passes one day in training camp is going to be the next Al Toon.

    Could be worse. We could have extended him.

    So what you're saying is, Joe will only be able to get a 3rd.
