    If he is healthy enough to play, I would argue there is some value to having him out there protecting our potential QBOTF during these incredibly important developmental and evaluation snaps. But that is just my take on it.
    Agreed. I just think he should go to another doctor if he feels like there is still something wrong with his knee even as the Broncos medical staff is telling him he's fine.

    It honestly feels like he realizes the season is going nowhere, only 3 games left and he can have the entire offseason to rehab it or whatever. And the Broncos should let him do it. Just put the guy on the shelf until next year and he should be fully ready to go. They gain nothing with having him aggravate it further these next 3 games. It's not like we can cut him next year because of his dead money number is high, so he's going to be the starting RT next year, that is unless the Broncos can trade him.

    On paper, I like the idea of Bolles at Right Guard. You want a nasty road grader type player at that position to open up the run game. It would allow him to leverage more of his heart-over-head style of play.
    And you could upgrade 2 positions with 1 draft pick and very little money. He is also athletic enough to be a pretty good pulling guard.

    His contract is guaranteed next year. He will be the RT. My hope is they draft an LT early, and an OG late. Bolles takes over at RG and can move to RT if James gets injured, then hopefully the OG drafted can fil in for Bolles. Gives a chance to evaluate Bolles at OG and possibly RT.

    A lot of internet tough guys who know how an NFL lineman coming off injury issues should feel mentally. Not sure how anyone could follow sports for any amount of time and think getting a big contract equals a lasting sense of security and peace for an athlete.

    Dude has played well when healthy but struggled with injuries. Big new contract came with big expectations to prove himself at his craft in a new place. Going into game 1 with those pressures and then immediately getting injured again would be a blow to anyone. Working his way back to play again this year and then getting hurt again? How would that not have some psychological toll, especially as fans and media grow more critical of his signing?

    So yeah, I don't think you have to resort to calling him weak or a coward to understand some of the factors that made this second return from injury this season a bit more difficult for him. Sure a big contract gives him security in some important areas of his life, but as a pro athlete a huge amount of his self image and confidence is going to be based on proving himself on the field. Constant injuries have to have him scared about losing that part of his life. These guys are human, no matter how much money they've banked in the past.

    Regardless how we feel about his missed time and various issues, there is no denying that he is a massive upgrade at Right Tackle over anything else we have on the roster. I hope he can stay healthy and mentally engaged for the remainder of the year and into the 2020 season. We are already going to be looking for Leary's replacement, and possibly and upgrade for McGovern. I'd prefer not to have to over-haul the entire O-line again this off-season.

    I wonder if he has anxiety or something. Odd how he has issues every other year:
    2014: started 16 games
    2015: started 7 games
    2016: started 16 games
    2017: started 8 games
    2018: started 15 games
    2019: started games (so far)

    If the pattern holds, he should be a full time starter for us next year!
    Yeah maybe he has anxiety on what to do with his excess money.

    Yup for the cash he is making he needs to be a fulltime player. Seems to have a lot of the Eric Fisher syndrome where is scared to play at times.

    Played the first half, we went up 31-3, OL looks MUCH better with him in the lineup. Hope he can stay healthy next year.
