    Oh let me guess... the doghouse. Harbs would rather lose than use the better player. RIGHT. Got it.
    McKiney has some work ethnic probs and JO said last week he must not be hitting the weight room the way he should.

    JO said with the way Oher is faltering McKinnie should be in shape to go to HARBs and say I'm ready to take over but he can't say that yet
    cause he's not.

    Yes, there is a dog house and his weight got him there which is how we got him to begin with when Minn cut him.

    I know what you meant, and I agree with what you meant, but that's probably an unfortunate typo...

    It was a false start. Watch again, he twitches his shoulder. That makes the defender go, then Oher reacts once the defender jumps forward but it started with Oher moving his shoulder.

    I must say Oher's really looked pedestrian as of late. I thought he was playing well at the beginning of the season, but since has faltered off. I think he has the quickness to play at LT, but perhaps it's his size? I know he's quick to get back in pass protection, yet sometimes he still gets beat. I think he's a formidable OL, but that he's clearly playing out of position. With that said, they really have no one else besides McKinnie and he just hasn't steeped up to the plate. It makes it frustrating, in my opinion, to even keep him around. I hope that Caldwell can find ways to get the ball out of Flacco's hand and keep the defense guessing like he did today.

    I definitely believe fully we have to find ourselves a capable LT, especially if you're going to move forward and pay Joe as your guy. I don't know if that will be a veteran (like a Jake Long? Although they'd have to really clear some serious space for him) or bringing in a LT via the draft (although there may be none by the time we pick), but we definitely need a solution there. I don't know how Jah Reid is grading out, hopefully he can be our starting LG for the future because LT and C are big holes going into next season IMO.

    I think McKinnie's ass is immune to fire. Otherwise, he'd've been feeling the heat to get some of that incentive money. He's broke.

    Oher is much better as a right tackle and seems to get beat consistently as a left tackle. He is a much better run blocker than a pass blocker and can't seem to adjust to the different angles of pass rushers.

But McKinnie is such a lazy turd he can't beat out one of the worst LT's in the game. THIS is all on him, PERIOD.

    That being said they need to move Oher to LG and figure out somethin to do with LT this offseason. And next year leyt that be the deciding factor on whether or not to give him even a small contract. If he can play well and will take mid grade guard/tackle money that would be a win win for all.

    McKinnie has been a better LT than Oher has been this year. That doesn't mean he is right now.

    There always seems to be a contingent of fans who think The Guy On The Bench is much, much better than the guy on the field.

    You don't practice....you don't play. A simple concept taught to everyone who has ever play sports at any level.

    I saw enough of McKinnie early in the season when he came in as an extra tackle on the left side (next to Oher) on a jumbo formation or whatever they call it.

    After the snap he watched a defender run right by him and blast into the backfield -- exactly the ONE thing that is NOT supposed to be allowed in that formation. McKinnie just stood there and watched. The ONE damn thing that idiot was asked to do and he put forth no effort. Screw him.

    I agree completely. If he cared, he take the few opportunities he does get and go out there and kick some ass. Instead, he stands there like he has no clue.
