Default Michael Oher at Right Tackle?

Of course it's speculation time all over the NFL. One rumor I have heard (I will try to find the link..) is we make a play for Oher. Recently released by the Titans.

It seems his (Oher's) play has dropped off a bit the last couple of years. Do we pass on him? Thoughts..

If we're going to address RT in FA we should go after Bulaga.

I have yet to see that movie, speaking of Oher. I'll have to do it...

I'd take the guy who played him in the movie at this point.

Pass.

Oher was never really great. Great story but an average player. Ravens fans were happy to replace him.

Here in Nashville Oher was roasted every day. He gave up at least a sack a game. He is terrible.

Honestly, now that we're moving towards a more run oriented game plan, moving Franklin back to RT is not a bad move. He was always a great run blocking RT.

I'd rather have Orlando Franklin back out there.

I don't understand it. Franklin had a greta 2013. He gets owned in the SB and he can no longer play RT The guy was a rock out there, a beast.

I just don't believe this to be true. Our line has stunk for years. Manning and his quick throws against the softest schedule in the league made the line look a lot better than it was.

How has it stunk for years? What years did the OL stink? Was it the year when Denver was the #1 rushing team in the NFL in 2011? Or was it the subsequent years where they gave up the fewest sacks in the NFL?

Last year was a down year but I don't think that was Franklin's fault by any means.

After he and Vinovich combined to single-handedly cost the Broncos a SB and destroy Champ's 2012 reputation, I would rather root for Incognito on the team than Oher.

how can any two parties combine to do anything singlehandedly?

Plus, I seem to remember some poor late game play calling, as well as Moore contributing to a Broncos loss more than anything Oher did.

That said, I don't want him on the Broncos because he sucks.

They combine into one entity lol.

And no, I still think the holding was the biggest difference. People think Miller and Dumervil disappeared because they disappeared their necks into the arms of Oher and that other schmohawk.

And yes, Oher has always sucked. If he was actually good I would probably give up my morals.

The line has definitely underachieved for years. Tebow and the coaching staff's decision to run the ball and run the ball and run the ball more made that 2011 line that consisted of Clady, Beadles, Walton, Kuper and Franklin appear better than it was. It is easier to fire off the ball and run block than it is to pass protect. Once our line had to pass protectóbecause we actually got a qb that can throwóour line showed its true colors.
However, I absolutely agree that Franklin played better at tackle than at guard. Last year was awful.

Any metric you us or just look at film says this is correct. It makes no sense to lose Franklin and then sign a lesser player.

This draft class is very strong At Tackle. I think we address Center/Guard in Free Agency and draft a young stud on the outside. Franklin is marginally better than Oher but we can do a lot better. Elway has said the focus this off-season will be upgrading the line, if that's true let Franklin walk and stay away from Oher.

It's easier to run block than pass block?

Really?

I think its an attitude thing really as a huge body in the trenches I think these big guys prefer to be offensive and fire out aggressively at people across the line than to back up and continually be on the balls of your feet in more a defensive posture. I've heard many line guys comment on it and the attitude that is involved.
