Yes...if this was back to the future you know you see picture of Rivers without a ring announcing his retirement it's 3/4 visible. I really thought this year was as a good chance to go all the way.

Maybe it's the best that Rivers can be...I hope I'm wrong. Nunc Coepi "Now I begin again" how many of these latin sayings does he have left professionally?

Priority for me would be ROT and RG.....roll with Okung another season (I know his money is crazy), Feeney and Pouncy. Then the next off season try to get two of the three addressed.....LOT, LOG, OC. Best case would be for one of the top OL guys to fall to the Bolts this year round one......and it doesn't matter which position, they all are in need of improvement.
Can the team afford to wait on another young offensive linemen? That would be a question I have.

Players get paid and lazy. Happens all the time.

It's not going to be easy to avoid another Orlando Franklin.

Well, there is no question that the OL group is behind the curve on this roster build. TT has had too many misses, Lamp being the most recent example, and that might prove to be the drag on future winning. To be fair, TT has had his wins in the OL group, with Pouncy being a huge addition. To answer your question, I do not see it as waiting. Draft talent and then hope that it asserts itself in TC.....if it does, it starts. TT needs to start acquiring OL players that push the current group to back up positions, or risk the timing of the build going far astray.

You are too presumptive about Lamp.
"I've seen this before in hockey" does not correlate.
We don't know.
You don't know.
Let's find out @ training camp.

The Bolts know......

My experience in Ice Hockey has some influence on my view on this, but not a bunch.

Lamp gets another TC because the Bolts have zero reason to not give him one.

“Another” training camp?

Lamp has never had his first training camp.

Be fair.....you know I meant he stays on the roster into next TC, you know that roster he has been on now for what....two plus years.

Yes, and hopefully we will get our final answer (good or bad) after he gets a training camp under his belt.

I think anyone with eyes can see we need help at both guard positions and at right tackle.

If Telesco goes status quo on any of those 3 spots, then Telesco needs to go. Feeney and Tevi both gave up 8 sacks by the themselves each, along with countless QB hits and hurries. Schofield isn't far behind them.

Lamb (that's his name until proven otherwise) has been a huge disappointment. Regardless of practicing fully and being completely cleared medically, he only dressed out twice in 18 games this season.

If you're not better than Feeney, Schofield, or Tevi... then that is more than concerning. Especially when you were the 38th player selected in the 2017 NFL draft.

Regardless... I fully expect TT to infuse a ton of talent into that position group, including FA's and draft picks. If Lamb earns a starting position, then all the better, but I have no reason to count on that and neither should TT.
