I'm a bit surprised by the Groy disappointment by some...

March 18, 2017 07:58AM
Look, I wanted him, too. At the tendered price and with no other compensation.

But let's don't overreact at losing him. Possibly only temporarily, btw.

He's a C, not a franchise starting QB, after all. Probably a middle of the pack talent, at that. Unless Kromer could work some magic, somehow.

I'm trying to put this in perspective, here.

Our '17 season doesn't hinge on whether we get Groy. It does hinge, in part, upon getting an upgrade at C. Groy was merely their first attempt at upgrading the C position, but it certainly won't be their last.

To be realistic, today is only Mar 18th. We've got almost 6 full months to come up with a good C. We've got an outstanding OL coach and a new HC that seems to fully grasp the importance of a strong OL, including C. There is every reason to expect that they will address this hole.

Draft
Trade
Cross train (don't laugh, Kromer has done amazing things in OL player development)
FA

One of these will provide our '17 starting C.

  Sullivan seems like a natural fit at this point.

PHDram141March 19, 2017 07:31AM

  Are back injuries a concern with Sullivan?
