    “The long-rumored move isn’t without risks, but it makes a lot of sense. It moves the line’s two most trustworthy and talented players to the more valuable side. ” –comment about GB moving their best o-line players to the left side.

    Maybe this is what we have to do. I know this is goofy. But what about Fluker playing the left side? Would that be too risky to do to Rivers? Who are the best we have left, seeing we let one of ours walk out the door?

    Besides that, there has to be somebody out there that is good. Come on, TT. You did not complete the job yet on the blind side – the more valuable side. Dunlap is not the answer. The key here is “most trustworthy and most talented”

      Well the thinking is that we will put “our five best” on the line. Moving Fluker to the left is going to take a bit of a learning curve. The responsibilities change, right side to left side. Fluker’s footwork might not be up to the task.

      So unless we hear about Maximillian Starks flying in or a phantom trade to bring in a working LT, that leaves us Dunlap who might be looking to redeem himself (Truth is Philly was a mess the last year or two and it all wasn’t on him), Mike Harris has a year of experience, albeit not great experience at the left side. Or Nick Becton out of Va. Tech who is just trying to make a squad.

      Who knows? Fluker might have the footwork for the left side, then we can put Dunlap at the right tackle and slide Clary to guard. All I know is I want this to get resolved soon.
