I think, jut like lats year when we held "audition" for the kicking job during the bye, we're going to look at who's available next week.i totally agree. i think its too late to sign a left tackle for this weeks game b/c they have to practice with the line and such, but i def. think we need to sign a vet LT for the year just to be safe.
Bushrod is hurt? Or benched?
Strief has proven to be better then Bushrod at this point based on their total bodies of work over their careers so far.
So I don't think we are losing anything. The only real worry is if Strief is hurt, in which case then it would be time to panic.
Knowning Payton though, he'd figure something out and I'm actually confident our D can help carry us if our offensive production drops some.
