    It's one thing to slide from Tackle to Guard or Guard to Center, but to go from playing Right Tackle to Center is not normal. Most RT's play out there for a reason, and it's not cause they're amazing blockers.

    You're suppose to block inside-out, and taking a guy who plays only a little, and moving him to where there's a bunch of action just doesn't seem to me like the best idea.

    I will agree with you that he's probably better than most give him credit for, but he's not that good IMO to where he can make that big a move.

    Remember, Amano went from Guard to Center and struggled mightily wit that transition. Not saying Otto sucks like that, but I'd rather not find out.

    Jeff Faine is still out there. Maybe he's asking for pro bowl money, but we should just overpay him for the upgrade it gives us. Could be the missing piece to our season.

    Not sure Faine is an upgrade. I wasn't happy when we passed on the FA centers but at this point they must see Velasco or Matthews as potentially better options. I read Velasco isn't even taking many snaps at C so it looks like Matthews must be a guy they really think is going to be ready this year.

    If Amano is the opening day starter someone should be fired
