He's being looked at as depth. Currently we have nothing behind Manny. Relax.

Maybe you haven't read the camp reports.


ManRam on skates. ManRam pulverized in the pit. ManRam pushed into the outskirts of Wichita.

ManRam is the weakest link on the oline, but I still dont understand the hate.

If ManRam is your weakest lineman, and you have Clady and Beadles on a line, I'd say the line is pretty good.

Hasn't ManRam been been with the 1's since the start of camp? I'm pretty sure ManRam is a starter. But that's just order of things.

I think that the ManRam experiment isn't working out as they had hoped. My question is why havn't we called Saturday yet? Unless he's gotten so old and weak that he's become ineffective.

I want to see a game or two before I decide to jump on the ZOMG DA SEASON IS OVER train.

Ramirez is the starter. Not the best starter, but we could do alot worse.

It might be time to call the Pats about Dan Connolly. He has been passed in camp and now is a back up from reports. Ballard doesn't sound like he is doing so hot either. We have extra TE's they have a C we could use.

depth my ass, Manny was playing with the ones because they were using this time to rotate all their young guys in. Koppen was signed for a reason and he was projected to start.

I think it's been a pretty big drop-off with ManRam. They told us "he's been the starter all along", but the fact is Koppen replaced ManRam as a Starter as soon as they put pads on...then was promptly injured.

With pads, ManRam has been getting handled by Knighton and Williams. I wanted to believe that they had ultimate faith in ManRam, but now I'm not so sure.

seriously though, this is why i wanted us to draft a C.
was worried about Walton & Koppen being the depth and one of them getting hurt. didn't expect both to be out of the equation though.
Blake hasn't even been a factor at C.

The term "coachspeak" exists for a reason. You think they're always truthful regarding support for players/position battles/etc?

They had to have somebody hike the ball in OTA's. ManRam is the only decent non-starter who wasn't hurt.

Considering they were splitting snaps I'm not sure what makes you so sure that its coachspeak other than the fact that allows for even more melodrama.
