    Barnes a good run blocker, but does he have experience playing guard? He's a big boy, does he have the speed to pull and run downfield?

    I like how he gave a ball to Sea Bass, no argument from this corner. BUT why the hell was he not doing this against the Chargers? Sproles gave them great field position twice if I'm not mistaken. I was asking this to myself the entire damn game. He should kick it deep on kick offs every damn time. We all know he has the leg to.

    As for the line, Cable knows better. I don't know how well the other guys can play LG like Paul or Khalif but I'm guessing that's something they'll work on and get it resolved prior to Sunday.

    the ball flies much farther during day games compared to night game, this is a result of it being warmer... I don't think he was meaning to kick it shorter, it was a result of it being a night game, ie cooler air.

    I actually considered this but no one around me could answer so I disregarded it ha ha. Good call my man.

    Lol and so true. Barnes seems to me the best option because its usually easier for a left tackle to move to left guard than right tackle sometimes. Also our system is really easy to understand and any left tackle in this league is more than athletic enough to play guard. The one good thing that could come out of this is perhaps we develop cc replacement at rg.

    Yes, that is correct. If any local Bay Area Oakland A's fans can attest to is how the ball flies out of here during the day, but sinks quickly at night...and that is a baseball. Imagine how a football would be affected moving through that same cooler air. The end over end tumble from kicks (not punts because they have a spiral) contributes to that shorter kick as well.

    ya, that's a good point too Dee, being an A's fan, I can definitely agree with that... its a huge difference.

    I would go with the following as our starting lineup........

    LT - M.Henderson, LG: C.Morris, C: S.Satele, RG: C.Carlisle, RT: C.Green.


    I don't agree with Cable by letting Barnes be a backup @ LT/LG, Barnes has never played guard before, no reason to put the Team in a tough situation to give up sacks and allow penetration from the inside because #1 he's never played the position before and #2 Morris/Satele have done an alright job when in the game.


    Why he doesn't use Barnes as a RT considering his run-blocking skills is beyond me, most RT's in the NFL are known for their run-blocking. Time to switch him to RT and put Pears @ LT.


    Oh, and as far as McQuistan goes, I don't ever want to see him in the lineup when he's proven to give up sacks/penalties. Go with the experience that I mentioned above with those guys and we should be alright.
