wonder where Sherrod will line up? Seems he struggled a little on the right side.

for now I won't mind if they go with Newhouse, EDS, Saturday, Sitton and Lang. See if they can build a little continuity.

Sunday will be a tough challenge for them lining up against the Lions DL. Lots of quick passes. See if EDS can get inside of Suh's head again.

He'll probably play the right side. It doesn't seem like he's back yet to where they want him to be. Plus he was just starting to get into the zone last year when he went down, so he's probly gonna be a little shaky.

Lang's shown he can play LT.

Its kind of hard to say he struggled. He was a rookie, without a real camp, and was being thrown in between Left and Right Tackle and also left guard in pre-season.

oh so he went out there and ripped the defense a new hole huh?

I never implied that there weren't justifiable reasons that he struggled. But he certainly did not set the NFL world on fire.

he missed TC this year too. It will take him a few weeks to get up to speed IF he can do so without camp.

yep that is why he is not on my list for the next few weeks. Let him get a few practice reps under his belt before he gets into the game.

He didn't need to Rip the defense a new hole, to be more than a struggling player. He learned the offense enough to be playing and not playing terribly. He was constantly improving. that is far from struggling. He just didn't win the starting role over players with more experience.

I'm happy with Sherrod just being a backup and am quite comfortable with EDS playing left guard. Let's just hope for no more injuries and get Sherrod some practice time. Don't want to see us resort to Barclay or VanRoten this year anyway.

It would be really good if we could make it through the year and let Sherrod, and Datko heal. I think Datko can be a very good player with time to get healthy and develop. Them, Bulaga and a first class center drafted next year could put our OL in much better shape. We need to keep our fingers crossed for good health and good luck.
Why is Jerry Kramer not in the Hall of Fame?

He clearly was making mistakes in the games (preseason) last year. I call it struggling a bit. You can call it anything you want if it makes you feel better.

When he moved to the right side during the season he had some nice places and he had some plays where he got beat by the defender. I am not saying he looked pathetic as you seem to want to imply.

He will certainly be better with time and more reps.

My original post said since he does need more time, I will not be upset if they do not run him out on to the field as an ever-down OT. By your nitpicking you must feel otherwise.

I would expect him to make mistakes in preseason. Hell even Rodgers makes mistakes during preseason and regular season. that isn't struggling, that is learning. What I would consider struggling is having problems past what should realistically be expected.

I think Clifton or maybe even Tauscher maybe worked out if Sherrod doesn't look like a go. My Opinion either would be able to step in and pick up the calls. Now.. if Mark is still in shape or ready to play. That I am not sure about... Clifton has noted he would stay ready if an opportunity arises.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.
