I feel like Dunlap was at LT for at least a year. I might be wrong though. I still have nightmares of the Giants games where McNabb was sacked like 12 times

Osi Umenyiora had 6 sacks against Winston Justice who was filling in for someone who was injured.

There was some awkward King Dunlap and Winston Justice years thrown in there between Thomas and Peters

actually we went from Thomas to Peters but Dunlap started the year peters tore his achilles.

It is a week later and not enough has been said about how the Eagles rooked the Texans to get Dillard.

Yeah, I know, it may work out in the other direction with Howard being better player, but c'mon.
The Texans wanted Dillard and were salivating over him.
The Eagles were the boss and got Dillard, widely regarded as a better player.

The pick is nothing without the trade.
While it may not ultimately work out that way it was not only the right move at the time, it was superior.

Hindsight is irrelevant.
