Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal

I have to believe that a good part of Solder's problems with the Giants have to do with how he was being utilized and coached. It COULD be that while with the Pats he was only asked to do things he was good at and they avoided things he couldn't do well. Maybe with NY they asked him to be more than what he actually was.

While he was with the Pats Solder was always a solid to very good LT and was a strong run LT and good pass protector who has issues with speed rushers, (much like Matt Light)

All hail Scar.

I think that Scar coaching helped Solder get that huge contract. And playing alongside a pro bowl tight end named Gronk didn't hurt either.

The combination of Brady and Scar made these OL look great.

We've invested so little in OL over the years, from a bunch of UDFAs, castoffs and low draft guys, like David Andrews, Tom Ashworth, Brandon Gorin, Nick Kaczur, Grant Williams, Mike Compton, Joe Andruzzi, Dan Connolly, Russ Hochstein, Dan Koppen, and two of my favorites, Stephen Neal who didnt even play college football, and goat-balls-teeth-cutter Grey Ruegamer. I have the feeling you could stick a Bulgarian shepherd back there and Scar and Brady will make them look like gods. Ted Karras needs to kick a few quid to Dante.

In the Starting Line-Up
1. Nate Solder
2. Jacoby Brissett
3. Malcom Butler

Maybe, Belichick isn’t such a bad GM... or coach. He gets the most out of players and knows who to let go.

How stupid are the Colts.

Rivers is clearly better than Brissett. Indy was all in on Brissett that they gave him all that money to prove it and now he holds a clipboard.

I'm surprised Trent Brown didn't crack the top 10. He's on the Raiders cap for $21.5 Million. This for a tackle who only played in 11 games last year.

How do some GMs still not realize that QBs are primarily responsible for sacks?
