Remember when everybody was complaining about our lack of depth on the OLine? This guy can potentially help fill that void. They kept Vlad and they kept Schlauderaff. For some reason they kept Landolt on the active roster for ages when he supposedly had a serious knee injury. They are trying to add some young OLinemen. Are they useful? Who knows, but Moore is old and was hurt for some of last year. Slauson will be an unrestricted FA and nobody here will admit that Vlad hasn't looked horrible in his time on the field in 2012. This guy is huge and might fit in the Sparano man up and push method of Oline.
I think the Seattle game will be interesting. I know a bunch of people on the board were all excited about the Seahawks defense and their speed, but it's a game of styles. Sometimes the speed can overwhelm a slower squad, but sometimes A big team can bounce speed guys out of the way and let a big gooch like Greene rumble for a decent gain on every carry. I haven't seen much of the Seahawks yet, so they might just be that good, but we'll see if we can get something going.
Gotcha. Thanks. I guess it is a depth move. I tried to see it for something else. Do you think Slauson will demand actual big dollars on the open market? He has been solid for us.
I've watched as much of Seattle as I could, and they seem more legit than what we all thought before the season. But they sure as sh*t aren't what everyone is making them out to be. Wilson can sling it, and can roll out of the pocket. We'll see. I think we put it to them. If not, we suck a ton more than I thought. And at this point, I think we suck pretty damn large.
