It's like the old saying; the guy with one watch always knows what time it is; the guy with two watches never knows. The Kilmer-Jurgensen days were fun, but most of it owed to the Redskins being very successful and the two of them turning into off-the-field buddies. As it seems to be shaping up for next year, we could be in a position to select a top tackle for the first time since we drafted Trent Williams, and top left tackles are worth their weight in gold. For the whole year leading up to the Chase Young pick, I happened to be pining for Andrew Thomas. He turned out to have a crummy first year but has since come into his own. Right tackles are also gaining in importance. Tackles went at #6, #10, #11, and #14 this year. Maybe we'd have been better off trading up as far as our 1st + 2nd would take us instead of drafting Forbes and Martin. First round tackles are busts often enough, or they come with the "might be better suited for Guard" fine print, but even though Leno has been at least decent, I'd like an elite left tackle prospect.


Leno was not decent yesterday . . . he was HORRENDOUS yesterday. He was the worse player on the line yesterday!!!

And just to make all our head shaking complete, after putting our first round chip on Emmanuel Forbes because he was a turnover machine in college, the Cowboys' 5th round pick in 2022, Darren Bland, yesterday made his fourth pick-six this season and threatens to break an NFL record.

He sucked but I think Paul sucked worse as most of the pressure came from stunting off Leno and Paul watching that guy go past him while he watched….

I think Paul was trying to help Leno out . . . even the announcers were calling him out . . . talking about all first half, his guy (Thibodeaux) be him consistently to the inside so Paul started to help out on Thibodeaux and then Thibodeaux started faking in and blowing around Leno to the outside. They mentioned Leno looking so confused that he should be removed from the game for his sake. He definitely looked confused to me as Thibodeaux was doing whatever he wanted and getting to Howell.

Yes: anybody watching yesterday knows that. But week to week he's generally been credited with better than I think; decent is the word. Doesn't matter, I still want an elite OT prospect.

I heard on Finley's podcast that as the teams were leaving the field for halftime, Thibodeaux thanked Leno for getting him to 10+ sacks this season. I cannot wait until Leno is gone, he sucks as bad as Rivera.

If it's left tackle we want then the pick should be Joe Alt from Notre Dame or Olu Fashanu from Penn State. At the rate we are going with losing we might have a choice between the two. Maybe get a Right tackle with our 2nd rounder.
