The Drafting Of The Tackle Dictates The Starting Quarterback?

Posted July 24, 2013

Apparently is the latest ploy by some to further their agendas around here. Citing the fact a guy (who has played both Left and Right Tackle in college) was drafted to play RT as the reason for dictating whom the starting quarterback would be. Well it this is the case then one would first have to look at who our tackles are projected to be in the first place. Our projected starters would be Jason Peters at LT and Lane at RT. Now look at the two players. Who RIGHT NOW is the better player? The answer is clearly obvious it’s Peters. Even Peters coming back at 80% is still better than a rookie RT. So judging by the concept of what player is better it would mean that a right handed quarterback would be the best option for the Eagles right now. Andy Reid didn’t place McNabb behind center until his young tackle had a year and a half starting behind his belt. A rookie protecting the blind side of a quarterback can be a recipe for disaster. Of course common sense would tell most of us that. The true significance of the drafting of Johnson is first he gives the Eagles the opportunity to move Todd back inside where he was a much better player. Second Lane’s versatility allows them to start at the right tackle and eventually move him to left once Peters contract expires. Third it allows them to continue to develop Dennis Kelly to eventually become the right tackle once Lane moves over. Drafting Lane simply makes the offensive line better as a whole. If anyone refutes this logic feel free to come here and debate it. I would never take the COWARD MOVE OF BLOCKING ANYONE WHO DOESN’T AGREE WITH ME.
