All week long, rookie Don Barclay. who replaced Lang after he got hurt last week against Minnesota, trained at right tackle and would be more than ready to start. So Lang could be designated for play only if an injury occurs.

But let's assume that Lang is available for full-time duty. Do you put him at right tackle or do you return him to his natural left guard position knowing you've got Barclay ready to go?

Barclay is a solid run blocker and with snow falling as we speak, it might be better to have your best run-blocking unit in the game, which would be Lang at guard and Barclay at tackle. It would mean putting Evan Dietrich-Smith on the bench or moving him into the center position if veteran Jeff Saturday (foot) is struggling with his injury.


I think they'll sit Lang and have him ready for emergency duty.

But if he did start, I'd put him at G, especially considering the weather. Barclay's gonna spring our RBs in the storm, just like he did last week.

agree Lang sits for a week. If he were to start I would say put him at his natural position G and if barclay had trouble slid Lang over and put EDS in the game.

Next year I want Lang to be our starting center.

LT - Newhouse
LG - Bulaga
C - Lang
RG - Sitton
RT - Barclay

Sherrod gets every opportunity to unseat Newhouse. Bulaga blew whales at RT this year.

But for the rest of the season, I'd really like to see Lang back at RG and EDS at center with Barclay playing RT.

LT- Sherrod
LG- Newhouse
C- Lang
RG- Sitton
RT- Bulaga

Marshall Newhouse was drafted as a G which is why I plugged him into that spot. And if Sherrod goes down, I think it's less difficult for a LG to slide to LT than moving a LG to RT if Barclay were to go down.

Maybe give Bulaga a shot at LT next year. All I know is that I liked what I saw with Barclay to RT last week, so give him the rest of the year to prove himself. We're kind of SOL this year anyway, but we'll ride this line for as long as far as they take us.

Well that's why you're not in the Dojo of Coolness. You can't handle both. [grin1]
