Seems like a lynchpin player to me. I rarely hear interior OL mentioned among the team's offseason needs, but the starting lineup is currently relying on two guys who may or may not be on borrowed time. Given age and injuries, what are the odds of a Hamilton/Weigmann combo playing 16 games together? And 2010? I expect the team will need a decent number of starts out of Kory this year. Anyone have a clue whether he's up to it?

The great news about the offensive line is it contains 3 of the top 4 long-term building blocks on the team when you look at age, talent, injury history, character, cost, etc. To me, only Eddie Royal is in the same blue chip category as Clady/Kuper/Harris. The bad news is the rest of the line could turn into an achilles heel very quickly. Ironic if the solution turns out to be Lonnie Paxton.

If they drafted Alex Mack, I wouldnt object.

I think we definitely pick another C/G in the draft, but not until after we grab a number of defensive players. I'd like to think that Hamilton and Wiegman can scratch together a season between the two of them.

Pick up Fenuki. He can do anything.

You mean half a season for each, or that they have 1 year left in the tank?

Weigman is alright, I don't know about that Pro Bowl though. Clady is our best lineman and Hamilton, Harris, and Wiegman are solid. I still think we should take a few new looks at RG - I want Tyler Polumbus to get a shot.

He's going to be a good player. He's incredibly bright, technically sound and has a good work ethic.

Definitely ... we don't talk enough about this guy.

I was surprised they've been listing him as a guard ... wasn't he the fireplug, short-armed Jeff Saturday kinda center? And Casey Weigmann is a graybeard now, so listing Kory at G is kinda funny ....

Shanny looked for ways to get him on the field for some game burn so there must be something there.

I'd like to know, too. It's frustrating how the OL tends to float under the radar.

By the way, if Lichtensteiger is Swedish that makes him that much cooler.

I say start him at RG this year and move him to C after Wiegman retires.

Linemen need a lot of reps and it kept him mentally taking reps if he was included in the game plan week to week.

You must not be paying a lot of attention, interior line is always mentioned as a need.

I thought last year, he was the backup for all three interior line positions.

Anyway, Kory is a really cool dude also. He even spent some time talking to my kids about high school football, they thought it was pretty cool.

There are certain name componentes that are common to both. "Berg" for example, is common in both.

You see in my opinion the problem we have is if we wait until it is a problem, and then draft interior linemen, there's no assurance that they'll be ready to play and so that means we will have had a problem, say this year if heaven forbid an injury occurred. As well as next year after we draft another interior linemen.

On the other hand, to pickup a blue chip prospect in the 1st 3 rounds would mean at least one less addition to our defense. Its a perplexing quandary.

I'm hoping that Kory has something special, but he alone can't anchor the entire interior. We need more bodies imo. But not just warm bodies, people that could actually fight for a starting spot this year or next.

Then, also looking at our line as it presently exists, doesn't McDaniels prefer a much larger O-line to what we've been accustomed to? He might very well have his eye on a player in the draft who better suits his mold and if the new coach has a favorite, well suffice to say that the outcome of any competition might be a little biased.

As three of the languages spoken in Switzerland are German, French and Italian that shouldn't surprise anyone.

Anybody ready to play in 2010 needs to probably be drafted now. I'd look for an interior lineman as early as the 3rd round.

I know a Jacobson from Germany.

There are plenty of Andersons in Germany. I know because I'm related to them.

Petersson/Peterson is interchangable in Denmark, Germany and Sweden.

Bergman is a common name in both Germany and Sweden.

So is Klein. Weber, Hoffman, Koenig, Lang.... Meyer/Meir

My great grandfather, Philip Andersson is from Sweden... my great grandmother Patricia van Hagen was German. My mothers mother, whose last name is Knuts (pronounced 'kee-NEWtz'), is from Germany, but her family is from Norway.

I think you're right.
Switzerland seems to be the origin and the tiny, German speaking country of Lichtenstein is adjacent to Switzerland, which adds to the likelihood.
