    What a lame misconception to base a movie off of...

    Coincidentally, the girl who played precious was much more convincing in her role as Michael Oher in the Blindside.

    I like Oher and I really like his story too. But Lewan has looked better to me so far.

    Even though he's a bit 'leaner' than a lot of RTs, he covers up it up well with aggression and athleticism. In the end, he's the future and why wait an extra year for him to brush up on his technique. Also, athletic young LTs/RTs fit in today's NFL fast-past offenses, more so than older/slower guys.

    Like I said, Lewan should start at RT. For me, Oher is a luxury back-up for one year. His contract is suited for a cut next year anyway.

    When that time rolls around, a decision to cut Roos (and flip Lewan to LT and get a starting RT through next year's FA/draft) or extend him (for 1-2 years which I think might be smarter) comes into play.

    Personally, after the complete shambles our O-Line was in last year, let the outsiders say what they want. I'm very happy with having our 6 for their collective price.
