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!!!
