We need a center and a right guard (the most anyways). If you look at the free agents though, any centers or guards really worth a damn are taken already.

We also need a Right tackle...don't forget that!!! Big Mac is a journey man who shouldn't be starting for any NFL team as a RT...fat and slow is how I'd describe him, and better suited to play the guard position.

Herm made Big D. Macintosh sound like he was the answer and cure to all the O-line troubles but he was wrong...once again

What about Khalif Barnes? What do you guys think of him?

I like him but is he going to visit? Are the Chiefs going to sign him without seeing him? We have no way of knowing anything and it kind of sucks when you want to know some answers.

But there are a few possibilities at RT. Mark Taucsher, Marc Colombo, or Ray Willis. As for a OG, Jahri Evans of the Saints is a good guard at 25 years old, and at least fills the position well. The one I'm most interested in (after Barnes that is) is Tyson Clabo. He played great for Atl last season, but has not be re-signed yet. He has great size and is only 27 years old. There are possibilities out there, but no one knows what kind of moves we are making behind closed doors.

I disagree. I think McIntosh came on, the further the season went along, and with Herb Taylor and our other drafted OT last year, I'm not sure right tackle is a spot we need to go spend a bunch of money on.

They have done things pretty good so far just set back and enjoy the ride everything does not have to happen right this minute. Good thing come to those who wait, as the saying goes.

He looked great as a rookie, but then gave up 7.5 sacks last year and had a lot of penalties on him too.

Well Albert is the only guy guarenteed to start on that line this upcoming year, but it may not matter as much if they pass a lot out of the gun.

I haven't had much of an opportunity to watch The Jags of late.

So he is a bit of a mystery to me. I doubt he comes cheap enough for us, and will likely be wanting to play on the left.

But, if we were to sign him, I would be pretty excited about him.

He is still a young guy, who started all sixteen games in '08. In fact, it seems that he has only missed seven starts in his four year career.

Not bad, for a mid-second round pick.

That alone suggests that the guy is pretty good.

BIg Mac only looked better because he had Thigpen rolling out of the pocket covering up his mistakes. He was beat oftent but Thigpen just rolled to the outside sealing the De who just beat Big Mac inside the pocket.

Cassell was sacked a ton last year. The Pats claim it was because he held the ball, not because of their Oline.

We can't afford to keep Big Mac at Rt.
