I dunno. I still think that Bushrod would be much better as a guard than a Tackle. I say try to offer him a team friendly contract and hope it pans out. If not, Charlie Brown should be our new LT...Just hope he can stay healthy.
I actually think Bushrod is better suited to RT, but has adapted fairly well to LT. He is similar I think to Oher in Balt. He may not be the best LT in the NFL but he is probably top 10. Problem is we dont have anybody better, and dont think we can upgrade in FA or the draft unless we use our first rounder on an OT. We have too many other positions we need to upgrade. I, for one, am not ready to turn over the LT spot to Charles Brown. That thought scares me.
Bushrod is a good left tackle, just not great nor elite. I would love to see him as our RT, while drafting or signing a great LT through free agency. Brown is not the future LT. If so, that is a step in the wrong direction, and a serious downgrade. He played decent at times as a RT, but also got handled quite a bit. He also seems to have more finesse than power, which has been said about him since he was drafted here.I dunno. I still think that Bushrod would be much better as a guard than a Tackle.

I would love to know why you think he's so bad?He's mediocre, and was the worst o-liner, and it wasn't really close. So, if a better option is available as less money, i'm all for it, and to hell with consistency, we didn't win the sb with jammal brown. If it's not possible ok, let's bring him back, it's not like we can do much more than that

Granted, no one is saying he's the best left tackle in football.
I will defend him by saying, as I have in a few other threads.......
We have had one of the best offenses in the league for the last few years.
Arguably, we have the best offense ever in the NFL.
Bushrod has been our starting left tackle for several years now and he deserves credit for being on one of the best O-lines in the NFL.
Plus, he rarely misses time. The guy is durable.
