    I think Wilkinson can play better than Bolles. Weíll see what Munchak can do with Bolles over the first quarter of the season. If he doesnít improve quickly weíre going to see more holding calls or worse, Flacco injured.

    Can you explain to me why James would be better on the left side?
    maybe that would be a good thing.

    disagree with all of that...

    I went back and watched the play when Lindsay was tackled for loss. The entire line including the FB Aston made great blocks. That was likely a 41 yard TD by Lindsay if not for Bolles - blown up 4-5 yards into the backfield.

    Munchak needs to sit him down with a clear message: Get it together now.

    No need to talk about a great camp for Bolles. Execute consistently or itís over at LT. Cannot have your 3rd year #20 play that bad. Munchak can coach but he canít block for Bolles.

    "(Weeks 10-17) was extremely encouraging, particularly from a pass-blocking perspective. From Week 10 on, Bolles allowed a pressure rate of just 2.9% which ranked third among left tackles in that period, trailing only Tyron Smith (1.5%) and Ronnie Stanley (2.6%). It was a promising in-season improvement for the Broncosí left tackle, as his pass-blocking grade in the second half of the season (77.1) was over 10.0 points higher than it was from Weeks 1-9 (66.4)."

    Outside of last nights preseason game, what did you dislike in the first two games?

    I asked how do you think it would play out . Never said James would be a better LT. I also edited it and said it really doesnt matter what side Bolles is on he will still get flags. He may be better off a Guard then a tackle . He get beat and that's why he holds .

    Next season we may need to be drafting two offensive linemen: a C and a LT. Right now I'm not convinced the line is where Munchak wants it to be.

    I think we need to let it play out and not have people calling for Bolles to move to guard or James move to the left side. Outside of a bad preseason game he has been trending in a positive direction since the second half of last year. He gets one hold in a meaningless game and people want to move around the whole line.

    let's chat after week 5 and we'll see how we both feel about Bolles then.

    Oh. I thought you disagreed with all of what I said. Not sure how waiting until after week 5 addresses any of what I posted...

    The one Tackle prospect I felt would be a great fit for the blocking scheme that Scangarello planned on utilizing was Andre Dillard. Was there ever any talk about him being considered?

    As the #20 pick itís not enough to be trending in the right direction. There were more bad plays beyond the holding call - watch the film.

    No need to move around the whole line. Put Wilkinson at LT and bench Bolles.

    The link I posted showed he had the 3rd best rate for pressures allowed for left tackles in the last 7 weeks of the season. Not sure why me saying he was trending in the right direction is not even considered. He has had a good preseason outside of Monday night. I feel like a lot of people here have a personal vendetta against the guy.

    Wilkinson played worse at LT, he just didnít have a holding call that negated a big play. Wilkinson has really struggled at LT and even at RT when matched up against speed.
