Tackle-a-phobia


I'm starting to get concerned with Philly's free agent strategy. Not chasing Andre Smith was reasonable,he just doesn't fit Chip's system. I understand that Jake Long would have cost way too much money. Honestly, I don't know what was wrong with Sebastian Vollmer. I just don't understand why the front office is so scared to pull the trigger on an available lineman.

Eric Winston- Not a great lineman, but he's solid( which is a lot more than what we have now). Now it seems as though evil wizard Jerry Jones has beaten us to the punch.

Brandon Albert- Come on Andy, show us some brotherly love here. I think with the right attitude the chiefs might give us Albert for a third, after all he's been on the block for a while now.

Tyson Clabo-Probably considered one of this off-season's more surprising moves. I like what Clabo could bring to the line. He's young enough to run in the new offense, but old enough to fully understand the nuances of his job. As far as a contract goes I would say the salary would balance out with production.

Bryant Mckinnie-Played good ball for the Ravens last year. Not sure what he has left in the tank, but based on last year could contribute in the short term.

Brandon Moore-Played mostly at guard with the Jets, but during college was a fine right tackle. Definitely has the length and mobility that Chip's offense demands.

I know that the general perception is that we'll be taking either Fisher or Joeckel at #4. But I just don't like the way that feels. I'm not saying either of those guys are Jason Smith, I actually think they'll be fine players. But looking at this draft all I see are defensive players and explosive skill position players that could contribute right away. Also,based on early assessments, next year's Tackle class grades out as one of the best in recent memory. I'm not saying we should neglect the RT spot, I'm merely saying i don't think taking a tackle in the first tree rounds is our best option when we are sitting on 20m+ cap space and there are still viable options available in free agency.
