    Vespian - chew on these OL names that are slated to be FA's next year.

    Max Starks, OT Steelers (starting tackle for a super bowl champion, 6'8 337lbs)
    Leonard Davis, OT Arizona Cardinals (mountain of a man)
    Mike Gandy, OT Buffalo Bills (relaitvely young, proven blocker for Mcgahee)
    Roman Oben, SD
    Shane Locklear, SEA
    Floyd Womack, SEA
    Todd Steussie, STL
    Eric Steinbach, CIN
    Jordan Black, KC
    Chris Gray, SEA

    All these names I've listed are unrestricted free agents except for Locklear and Starks. All these names would also be upgrades.

      The only nameon there who is worthwhile is Eric Steinbach. I would love to stick him at LG next to Gallery and get rid of Sims' massive contract. Other than that, those guys are pretty pedestrian.

      Oldie but a goodie.

        Starks and Davis are big veterans that have talent. Gandy is by no means an elite player, but he is a solid starter. Oben is a seasoned vet. Steinbach will cost a pretty penny, but it would be worth it. And Locklear is a solid starter as well. The rest are certainly pedestrian players, but IMO would be an upgrade over our current starters. The point is, we have to do something come offseason, cause our guys are not getting it done.

          Davis might re-find his groove after being moved back inside to guard. I'd definitely give him a shot.

            As I mentioned in my blog the other day it's kind of crazy that the Raiders o-line is so bad because they have invested draft picks there, including a lot of high ones. So if you ask me the problem then comes down to either coaching or scouting. I am inclined to say coaching isn't the problem because they have had two coaching staffs with the same problem and now there are Hall of Fame o-linemen trying to whip them into shape. That leaves poor scouting as the reason for me...
            Great players do not necessarily great coaches make.

            We never should have let Aaron Kromer get away.

              Starks was benched. He's washed up. As is Roman Oben.

                He and Steinbach are the only guys to whom I would give any amount of money. But only to play offensive guard. Both of them would be fine additions, but with Kevin Boothe playing so well, I can't see us grabbing two of them. We've got McQuistan who may or may not be in the process of being groomed to play RT.

                On a side note, does anyone know where Aaron Kromer is right now?

                    The Steelers also benched Mcfadden, who they just signed to a fat multiyear extension...Does this mean he's washed up? And Starks is back starting. They're having a bad year, just like us, Cowher's just seeing what he has.
