    This is who started tonight's game:

    LT Matt Light
    LG Logan Mankins
    C Dan Koppen
    RG Billy Yates
    RT Nick Kaczur

    So do we think Yates gets the start at RG? Was hoping Hochstein would be healthy ...

    I think we can lock it in. Hochstein would get at least a week of practice with the first team before he gets inserted. I'm hoping Welbourn or Flynn get inserted in at RG a few weeks at most. I don't buy that just because they weren't picked up by any other teams that they are not better than our current options at the position.

    Yates gets the start, scary as that is.
    He's healthier, and they have worked with him for over three years now.

    Maybe they were trying to fool Strahan into coming back.

    That looks like it's going to be it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing what Mike Flynn could do at RG. He seems to be doing well with just a few weeks of practices

    I hope yates sits for John Welbourne. Welvbourne opens holes. RB run up Yates ' back as he is always in a standoff at the LOS. The consistent result is -1, 0 or +1 yard and that is all.

    My concern is the sieve it becomes if (when?) a tackle goes down. Britt is just too slow on the edge.
