    How can he be lost for the season? He doesn't have a leg injury?

    But in all serious; sucks for any player :(

    To IR as I predicted. It is a bulging disc I believe.

    This bites. BB rolled snake eyes with both Seymour and Mankins. It happens.

    Now both lines are suspect.

    That may or may not be true, but I'm not sure what that has to do with Kaczur. It's not like, all of a sudden, our line is suspect because we have to rely on Connolly instead of Kaczur.

    Connolly has played well this preseason as has the 1st unit OL but I believe if Kaczur winds up on IR the Pats will be looking for interior OL help via a trade or the waiver wire. The 2nd unit has struggled and I no longer see Wendell or Larsen on the week 1 53. Larsen to PS.

    Nah you're right, it's mainly a depth thing I guess.

    *And I shouldn't post when I'm hung over--for some reason I forgot that Kaczur wasn't still at RT. :eek:

    Wow, I'm going to ban myself for that post.

    Wendell makes the 53 because he plays OC as well as OG. Who takes over for Koppen if the ginger goes down?

    Sorry to hear about this with Kaczur, but I think we all more or less expected this. And I dont think it impacts the effectiveness of the interior of our Oline one way or the other. Kaczur's never even played guard, let alone on the left side, and he probably would have sucked trying to fill that role. Im glad this unfortunate circumstance has basically given a better player an opportunity to play.

    Guess we now know why Nick was taken Oxi's by the fist full.

    Back problems are the worst to deal with and never ending

    You betcha. I have a couple fused vertebra and it's heck getting older and dealing with them. Even with exercise, PT and being careful, there are still days when I have to reach for the meds.

    What I was thinking too.

    As soon as he was busted for painkiller addiction and presumably therefore compelled to stop gobbling them, I expected problems ahead (whether in the form of injury or just performance drop-off).

    And he's not so good that he can necessarily be effective as his body wears down.

    Between and the late start to his career -- well, Kaczur is a living example of how football is a tough way to make a living.

    Ohrenberger, trade/waiver pick up or Connolly slides over and Ohrenberger plays LG.

    Big blow to depth.

    Lose Mankins, then his primary back-up -- a guy who can play T or G, providing lots of depth.

    Similarly, lose Seymour, Warren, and Jarvis Green -- another big blow to depth on the defensive line. While the starting game may not be terrible, this will hit the team as injuries mount.

    Why are you so damn ignorant? Seriously. You make stupid comments about players and 90% of the time you're shown to not know what you are talking about.

    Bussey is playing OT and he'd be behind LeVoir. Ohrnberger would be behind Connolly and Neal and probably behind Ghiacuic as well.

    Well even though I picked on Nick I wish him well in life ... he's probably all done in football or at least he should be if he wants to be walking normally later in life.

    Brandon Gorin is available.. And he's a known quantity for the Pats. Though I doubt he has much left.

    The big question is this: What do the Pats do now? Do they fly Reese and Caserio out to Mankins and give him their final offer that is more inline with the Jarhri Evans deal (splitting the difference between what they wanted and what Mankins wanted in the 1st year) or do they sit on him and wait until he blinks?

    I'm not ignorant at all and you should be beaten for saying such.

    I know they're not starting, but they are needed for depth, so yes they need to be ready. Bussey is supposed to be able to play guard as well. He's kind of short for a tackle anyway.

    As far as "90% of the time"? More blather from you. Find me one time. You should be beaten, and beaten quite harshly.

    My guess is they'll literally be doing nothing with Mankins. He's got a one-year, roughly $1.5mil tender on the table. The man can come in and sign it anytime he wants. They'd go from there if he ever signs that thing. But theyre not meeting him halfway on anything. I think even if Connolly goes down, that doesnt change. Mankins has his "principles". The team has theirs.

    They can't up their offer. Ignoring the issues of who is right and who is wrong, if they up their offer after he has held out and bad mouthed the team then they can expect many more players to do the same thing in the future. It would be like them admitting that they were the bad guys, and lose them leverage in every future contract negotiation.
