Ok, i've seen people mentioning liking brown back at RT, I don't see that happening, as he went to the probowl as a LT, and LT being the payday position for a righthanded qb.
Doubt he would move back, and coach when moving him to LT said it was permanent.

instead of that, since our 2 best olinemen are opposite sides of the center, nesbit being more of a "technical": player as mentioned before. how about swapping nesbit to right, and putting Jahri next to brown.. Wouldnt' this help with our running game, as much as putting brown to the right? also you want to have your best protection for the QB to his blindside.
Thinking this kind of thing might actually help brees, and bush or whomever is the RB.
that would make the left side of the line an elite one.

yes, i'm interested on the thoughts of this, and enlightenment if it's bright or dimwitted.

I think having Jahri on the right side keeps us balanced.
I also wouldn't be confident at all with having Nesbit and Stinchcomb letting 2 pass rushers from the same side get to Brees.
Any time we'd run the ball it would have to be to the left side.
It is an interesting thought though which could become a reality. To do it though we would still need a new RT.

that new rt may be on the bench with strief and bushrod.. maybe rg as well.
just hope they step up in their second year.. dont' really see bushrod or alleman starting over nesbit.. but possibility is there.
