    Trial by fire. Why not. If he is ready, no worries, if he is not, then it is a learning experience and we put Barnes back in.

    once again, this notion that a below .500 team has the luxury of grooming talent is a lttle beyond me.

    How about finding a serviceable player 1st?

    We're hanging in. We've got heat and hot water, and I guess those are the most important...but 70% of our outlets are on the fritz. And I've been unable to get cable/internet up and running. Lol, getting a little tired of watching NCIS and Grimm on disc.

    I'm very much hoping the new storm is overblown....tomorrow is my day to get gas. We'll have to see how that pans out.

    I'm still a lot luckier than most. Thanks for the kind thoughts.

    This is good news. Can't be much worst then Smith or Barnes. I think Bergstrom will play well. I'm looking forward to seeing him on the field.

    So who is starting right now that you would have rather had us pick at that spot?

    There is a lot to be concerned with about this team. The fact that a 4th round pick didn't start the first half of the year is not one of them.

    I didn't say we should of picked someone else, I said it is not uncommon for 3rdrs to start in the NFL.
    He was a 3rd rdr.
    In context, to this move, I felt it is a bit of a concern ,that he couldn't beat out Willie Smith over the previous weeks.
    There is a lot to be concerned about with this team. Offensive line is just one of them.

    i say hes basically a 4th rounder since it was the last pick. Also keep in mind not that many late 3rd rounders start in their first year.

    He's closer to a 4th rounder than a 3rd rounder, in my eyes....he was taken after the 3rd round was completed. But yeah, splitting hairs.

    I'm still not the least bit concerned that he hasn't started yet. We've got bigger fish to fry.

    Should've kept Barksdale, if nothing else, for depth...

    Apparently some of you don't pay attention to good teams. Bergstrom is a 4th round OL basically... On a good team, it's like that sit on the depth chart for 2-3 years, learn the system, and move into a starting role...specifically in ZBS.


    We are asking a lot for him to produce immediately, so I wish him the best of luck.
