Offensive Line Projection

I think you are being paranoid.  No one is enamored with Hart. He's on a one year $5 million deal.  He's a backup.

It's hard to shake 16 years of bad decisions influencing my opinion of the team haha.

Reports from OTAs today saying Glenn is moving to LG.  Haven't heard Bolings status yet.  Looks like were in for another year of Bobby Hart though..

Something is up with Boling. Why are we displacing one of our solid lineman? Unless we’re just that inept we chose to keep Hart over him. I’m leaning towards the latter.

I guess I wasn't just being paranoid 

There are so many guards on this team though that even with Boling out, this feels like the wrong decision.

They are trying to get the 5 best players on the field. If Boling wasn’t hurt I bet Glenn would be moving to RT. Glenn is starting LG, backup LT IMO

At this point, i's an option.  They were short Boling, Westerman and Redmond and they had said they were going to play around a little bit with their lineups.  The goal is to get your 5 best guys out there, so it's important to see where everyone works.

Kind of feels permanent when you have Glenn talking about how the coaches asked him to move to guard.

Yeah, but that is not the entire story.  They just discussed it as a possibility with him.

Boling  was there working by himself though.  Doesn't sound like a long term injury. Even if it is,  Westerman or Jordan make more sense than moving one of your best tackles off to play guard.

I tried to tell you all

To me it doesn't matter if Boling is hurt all year or not.  You've got 3 tackles (Williams, Hart, Glenn), and 6 guards (Jordan, Miller, Hopkins, Westerman, Boling, Redmond) you could reasonable throw into a competition.  It just doesn't make any sense to me that you'd transition one of three tackles to guard and essentially declare the tackle position done in the first OTA when the whole line was a mess in 2018.

To me it should be Williams at LT, Glenn/Hart at RT, open competition at LG and RG.

Just feels like the "competition" of 2018 all over again.

Starting Bobby Hart is a mistake any way you put it. Why is this team so hard-headed when it comes to obvious personnel decisions?

I can't imagine a scenario where preaching putting your 5 best lineman on the field includes Hart.

I said essentially the same thing over on Cincy Jungle.  Glenn would be the backup LT anyway, and we only have three viable options at T at this point
