Cap penalty means you have to set your sights a little lower. I don't think this is bottom fishing, but even if it were one thing Shanny has shown is a willingness to play the best man regardless of contract or rep.
These two things.Anyone know the terms of the deal? Kinda hard for me to get too worked up without knowing how much we're on the hook for.
where's the risk here?
There is no dark tunnel of dead cap money to follow if Pashos doesn't make it back to 100% as there was with the disastrous extension for Jammal Brown.
When Pashos has been healthy previously he is a functional NFL tackle. He is far better in pass protection than Tyler Polumbus and I think coming out of the 2012 season up front among the starting 5 THAT was the most glaring hole, pass pro at RT.
The team added Jeremy Trueblood from the Bucs, also a veteran RT, to compete for the job and perhaps be the #3.
If both are healthy and again we were shopping on the bargain rack because of injuries to these players, then the team will be a lot more settled at OT than they were in 2012.
If Compton was that close to being ready in 2012 he would have seen snaps during the regular season at some point instead of Jordan Black, who a few weeks earlier was working as a stockbroker.
Evidently, he isn't there yet. So, we needed to make these moves to bridge for 2013.
I know right...even when Polumbus was the worst pass blocking RT ever. I coulda swore that Hurt filled in for Polumbo one game after an injury and played pretty damn well @ RT. I remember cause i was excited to see him the next game but TP ended up starting again...smh. Photos of Shanny in lingerie or something.That signing kinda pisses me off! I cannot believe there is not an RT on our team...Hurt, Compton...who cannot play better than Pashos!
Ahh, the good ole days when we spent high picks on o-line. My goodness i'll do a backflip if the Shan actually drafts a RT in the 2nd. Hell even a cartwheel if we use our 3rd on one!....
We went on to draft Jon Jansen who started all 16 games as a rookie at RT in Round 2.......
And for those like Chris Russell at WTEM who think the club won't be able to find a starter in Round 2 at any of these need positions for 2013, we do have the examples of Jansen in 1999 as a RT ....
Shanny has drafted Oline guys within the first two available picks in two of the three drafts he's been here. He's drafted six overall and signed a bunch of middlin' free agents.Ahh, the good ole days when we spent high picks on o-line. My goodness i'll do a backflip if the Shan actually drafts a RT in the 2nd. Hell even a cartwheel if we use our 3rd on one!
Amen to that! I think it meant a lot to reinvest in some of our own guys again this year... Can't measure what good it will do this season, but its got to be good in the locker room!Im pretty happy with this team personnel, player, and attitude wise. We aren't the laughing stock of the league, we have players who love being here and not just mercs off the street, and we're winning.
Seven game winning streaks dont happen by luck.
