    Ask Not What BGO Can Do For You...

    We heard you loved the place. And since love is hard to find, and because we kinda dig you too, we decided to stick around for awhile. We're not closing up shop, but instead will be launching a brand new site next month and plan on being around for a long time to come. But love costs. We could use your help. If you love this little Redskins fan oasis, please contribute to the cause.

    • BBQ's Off-Season Evals: The Offensive Guards

      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope you had a good week. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become part of the family.

      OTAs, mini-camp, rookie camp, and the draft have passed into the history books. Training camp will be here in less than three weeks. We’ll continue to cover it all and give everyone at BGO the best coverage possible.

      BBQ continues our off-season evaluations and today we will take a look at the offensive guards. Feel free to scroll back in this off-season blog and see what we have said about free agency, the draft, and take a look at what your fellow Redskins fans think of the team transactions over the last several months. BBQ will continue to take a look at each position and provide analysis over the next few weeks. Feel free to offer your own analysis as we go along.

      - Days until Training Camp: 20
      - Days until the first preseason game: 34
      - Days until the Regular Season Opener (Eagles): 65
      - Days until the Cowboys game: 72
      - Days until the Giants game: 93

      Let’s get right to it!

      Offensive Guards:

      Brandon Scherff
      Brandon Scherff should be fully healed after suffering an injury halfway through the 2018 season. He should be able to resume his role as one of the best right tackles in the league and dominate the competition in 2019. Even though he is under contract, the Redskins would like to sign him to a new, long term deal before the season begins. If the front office is successful, the team will have more salary cap room that can be carried over to 2020.

      Wes Martin
      Who? Good question! Before the draft in late April, very few fans, pundits, and media knew about Wes Martin. It’s looking like he will be the starter at left guard and the Indiana Hoosier could be a good one. Martin could man the position for a decade or longer. He utilizes a nasty streak to his advantage and gains leverage on running plays, but will need to work on the pass protection skills.

      Tyler Catalina, Zac Kerin
      Zac Kerin is entering his fifth season in the league and Tyler Catalina hopes to be playing in his fourth season. That kind of experience helps both players as they seek a place on the roster. Catalina is looking to stay healthy this season and avoid the recent injuries that have sidelined him at times. Zac Kerin came aboard last season when the offensive line lost several players to injury and was effective in the few games in which he played. This battle will not receive a lot of media attention in camp and the preseason, but it is important.

      Jerald Foster and Tony Bergstrom (also battling for a backup tackle slot) are fighting for roster spots and both of them could be facing a numbers crunch. Foster could be a candidate for the practice squad. Ereck Flowers has reportedly been trying out at left guard and while no tangible reports came from OTAs and mini camp, he must be considered as a legitimate choice to make the roster due to his experience in the league.

      There is our latest look at roster position evaluations for this off-season. We will feature another position early next week.
