Recommended Posts

Well then...as if the line wasn't already a big concern, it is more so now. Jeez

I know someone who had a serious blood clot in his leg.  It destroyed a lot of muscle tissue and his leg is permanently weakened.  I'm not saying this happened to Boling, but it's possible.  Also a good chance he will always be susceptible to more blood clots.  Glad he made the right decision for himself and his family.  All the best.

Wow! That sucks!

All the best to him but damn!

 

Our GM needs to make a big move or 2 to try and sure up the weakest position on the team!

What does Boling have to do with their LBs?  :lol: 

 

Did you not notice how many guards they acquired in the offseason? :smile:

They've got to bring in FA's that can halfway compete for the starting roster.  Some bodies with a ceiling above the usual camp shlub blocking dummies.

I wish him the best and don't blame him but damn that's gonna hurt. Andy is in for a very short year I'm afraid.

Sorry to see him go but glad he is looking after his heath.

I wish him nothing but the best.

 

If there is some sort of silver lining, I hope Westerman gets a real and honest shot.

Sucks for Boling to have it end this way.  There's been rumblings that something was amiss the past few months so I can't say I'm shocked by this news.  It's another major blow to the weakest unit on the team following Williams' shoulder injury.  I'm not sure who replaces Boling yet, but Westerman might get the first chance.  John Jerry and Michael Jordan could also be in the mix.  Depth was already a major issue at tackle and now guard isn't so deep either.  Not sure what moves could be made at this point but it's not looking good right now.

I think they knew since Boling did, they just kept it quiet.

Clint Boling will be fine--he's set for life financially. Good on him. 

 

You are now going to see if The Bully has any ability to earn his paycheck. If he has any, lemonade will be made.

Yep, impossible to blame Boling.  Blood clots are killers, he has zero reason to continue playing after earning over $24mil in the NFL.  Best of luck to him. 

 

Well, the bully is gonna need some lemons first.

I sure as hell hope they make some moves to improve the line for the upcoming season. I have no idea who is available, but we can't go in to the season having lost our #1 draft pick and now losing Boling to retirement. C'mon MB!!

On paper, the OL has somehow managed to get worse over the offseason.  That's kind of amazing.

OTOH, on paper, they added some potentially good parts who may soften the blows. Miller was brought in as an upgrade at RG--and until shown otherwise, will be. Jerry has been above average for most of his career, so if he shows that again, he will be no worse than Boling. Jordan has talent.

 

Glenn has been a very good LT in his time..it is just the injury concerns there. Hart is Hart...just hope I reckon. Price will improve, I have no doubt. Westerman could become Superman. Hopkins is OK. There is no depth at tackle. 

 

Basically, on paper, the present line is a push from a year ago...with a possibility of improving a bit. Who really knows?

I was actually talking about the O-line and not just Guard.

And while I admit the LB corps is pretty weak, I would argue

(actually this is my only attempt at arguing) that this team would

win more games with good to great O-line play over good to great LB play.
