OK, maybe not Chris Scott.  Sounds like the rookie may be heading to IR. 


Crap. I was hoping he'd get a shot. IMO, Jon Scott would be a better option than Foster, unless Foster improves dramatically in the off season. Scott had decent feet from what I remember of his days at Texas, and Foster wasn't exactly a wall in pass blocking schemes. Also, sicne Scott played under our new o-line coach, he'd already have a grasp on the scemes the guy runs and could act as a coach in the huddle for the linemen.

Jon Scott, bounced from the powerhouse Lions and Bills lines, has impressively bad stats.

As a Lion, 6 sacks allowed in 6 starts, 5 false starts.
As a Bill, 10 sacks in 8, with 5 more false starts.

Maybe Coach Koogs sees some raw potential not manifesting itself on gameday.

Foster had 0.5 sacks allowed in 4 starts, inside, and 0 false starts.  Certainly a different challenge outside, but is Foster slower than Colon?  Really?  Hard to imagine.

Jon Scott did play some LT at UT, but definitely looks to be in the Foster/Colon footspeed tier.  Maybe next year.  Or this, if he heals fast.  Not sure of his prognosis as yet, but always a bad harbinger heading into camp hurt.

It appears that Ben's issues with concussions are likely to continue for some time. 

Unless he takes the aforementioned route to a longer suspension...which, at this point, is not his worst option.

I thought Colon played significantly better last season and he will be a brutal loss on an already crap line.  But the fact that he was one of our better players last season speaks volumes to how Colbert and Co. have let the oline slip for the last 10 years.

Not to worry.  We're putting some LBs on a hi-cal diet for "positional flexibility" OL rotation.

Unless he ...



...realizes he can throw the ball away when he's outside of the tackle box.  Shocked
