Why does Dahl need to be replaced so urgently? If anything, I get the impression that he is better than Clabo.

I don't agree with needing to great rid of him. The poor playoff game he had leaves a bad taste though. However, Clabo is better. He's one of the better RT in the league from what I've seen.

that's because Clabo is playing like an above average RT even though he is out of position.

I think that both Dahl and Clabo should be left as they are. They played well. The Arizona game, they struggled; but if you consider the fact that it was their first ever playoff game, they were in an astonishingly noisy environment, and the Cardinals have said that they had a clue on the snap count, it's hardly surprising that they had problems.

Also, as I've said elsewhere, it would be TERRIBLE for team chemistry to bring in a guaranteed starter over them. They were a big part of last year's story, the undrafted guys, the nasty guys; a microcosm of last year's spirit. To simply replace one of them would really play badly, I think...

Give them competition, fine, draft a third rounder or whatever. But to sign a high-priced free agent, that's a guaranteed replacement. And that would not go down well. Moreover, it is a waste of resources. We have bigger needs. If Dahl or Clabo has a down year next year, THEN we can replace them.
