We need solutions to fix the offense and it begins on the line. Can we move Mason Walters to RT? Britt Mitchell isn't capable of holding his own this season.
David Snow and Michael Huey have performed fairly well so far. Is it my imagination or has David Snow played some RG in his career? I seem to remember him even playing RG last year in the Big 12 Championship against Suh.
Kyle Hix has been a major disappointment this season. However benching him would not be wise.
The coaches have been high on Mason Walters and even Muschamp has praised his toughness. The offensive tackle positions have become the most important in football since there are so many great defensive ends. I would feel better putting Walters at RT.
So what does BON think are the solutions to solve the O-Line issues?
I say we take a chance with Mason Walters at RT, move David Snow to RG, take a chance on Garrett Porter at center, and keep Huey and Hix where they are. Even if Porter struggles at least he has Snow and Huey to hopefully bail him out.
We have to look towards 2011 and what sort of line Malcolm Brown will be running behind. We need to bring Hopkins along so he has a chance to start next year. Getting Tray Allen back will be helpful.
We need a package with a fullback too. Put Jamison Berryhill in to clear some holes. Chris Whaley looks like an offensive lineman and would be interesting to throw into action at FB. If I was Cody Johnson and wanted to play in the NFL then I would ask the coaches to play fullback. Cody's 250 and Ron Dayne is not in the NFL hall of fame. We need a package with Cody and either DJ or Fozzy in the same backfield. We have to run the ball and be balanced. We've leaned way too much on GG and the receivers. We have not been well suited running 5 wide receiver sets and need to be creative in running the ball!
