i was a huge believer in andre smith. i said he could be a solid tackle or a great guard. I think they should just move him inside and get another tackle, you can always kick him outside in a pinch.

to the comment about the steelers not being good at tackle, i think thats somewhat untrue....starks was a great addition (again) this year and marcus gilbert played great. Im anticipating gilbert being the LT (anyone but jonathan scott) and colon being the RT unless they draft one and move him to RG (like mike adams)

The interior aside from pouncey is so terrible that the tackles look way worse than they are...and this has been this way since faneca left and hartings retired....trai essex, justin hartwig, darnell stapleton, doug legursky, sean mahan might be the biggest lineup of misfit ive ever seen play on the oline....i wouldnt be surprised to see one or two of konz, osemele, glenn, adams, washington be a steeler and revamp the interior line

The Saints are the premier passing team almost every year since Brees has been here, and our LT pass protection has been mediocre to solid at best, and we chip and help a lot, but it's really easily covered up by our scheme.
I really like the Saints' design to protect their offensive tackles.

A lot of the time, you'll see Sproles and/or Graham lined up as a wing. First of all, it's difficult for the defense to jam and reroute them off the LOS. But it also offers a lot of versatility - you can have them chip to help out an edge rusher and then flat release OR have them release right up the seam (because they're an immediate vertical threat from that spot).

You can scheme around not having elite tackles, but you'd better make sure you have a damn good QB and solid interior guys.

More than one way to skin a cat.
