    That's what I figured. Zane Beatles, 5 years, 30, 13 in g-money. Michael Oher, 4 years, 20, 9.5 g-money. Nuff said.

      Oh, you sure its "fine with you" Emanuel? We are all super concerned.

      Im sure this is one hell of a relief for our quarterback that hes not working you too hard.

          He was talking about the extra reps outside of regular practice.

          Love the Omane. It's where I come to get hairs split and innocuous remarks dissected.

            Clady / Franklin / Ramirez / Vasquez / Clark ---> probably the best potential Bronco offensive line in a while.

              love the idea of Franklin moving inside to protect Manning...

                It all depends though, elite RT's who teams feel can move over to LT get paid more than guards in FA. But that is so rare of a occasion that it almost never happens.

                Top OG's make around the same as RT's or lower LT's as many have already said in previous posts.
                If Franklin takes to the position and fully embraces then we might have a very special OG on our hands.

                  I could be wrong but I believe it is a few steps to the left.

                    That puts him left of center so he's another damn liberal?

                        This!

                        I'm really looking forward to seeing how well this line run blocks. We're going to have a wall of road-graders!

                          Great move IMO, he has very high upside as a guard. He should be much better than Zane Beatles

                            I don't make homerish statements lightly, but that is imo the best O-Line in the NFL.

                              It's not an exact science, but based on averages the highest paid linemen go LT, C, RT, LG, RG.

                                I remmember reading The Idiots Introduction to Football by Joe Theisman like 12 years ago. A lot of it was BS but it had some good information. I remember him saying typically you put your best pass blocker at LT, best run blocker at RT, second best run blocker at RG, best athlete at LG, and smartest lineman at C.
