  • Given his injury history, he might be good for 8 games.

    But that would mean in those games Russ isn't running for his life.

  • It's going to all be about the money and what the results of his physical turnout to be.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    I'd rather see Joeckel and Clady at the tackle spots and leave Ifedi and Glowenski where there at. At some point in time it would be nice for at least a couple of our offense linemen to play the same spot for more then one year. Maybe I'm wrong but a little continuity couldn't hurt.

    Now this has me interested. If he's okay physically Clady and Joekel are a quantifiable upgrade over the trainwreck twins named Fant and Gilliam.

  • IF Clady can regain his form, he will be a huge upgrade at LT. He and Fant can share duty, that may help Clady to avoid injury and more gas in the playoffs.

    Ifedi an upgrade over Fant at LT? Fant was not good but he never played OL or LT, so I will cut him some slack.

  • Fant needs competition. It could be Joeckel or it may be someone else. Fant is still likely to be the LT next year.

    Any 300 pound fat dude that played basketball or soccer would be competition. Anyone that actually played the position should beat his sorry basketball ass. If not, The Seahawks have serious problems and Tom Cable should be fired.

    I have Ifedi at RT. I would have Fant backing up Clady who will more than likely get injured.

    To answer your question though, yes Ifedi or almost anyone that's played football more than one year would be an upgrade to Fant. Anyone not named Sowell or Webb. I'm not trashing Fant but he needs to sit and learn the game. He's being asked to block Quinn, Jones, Beasley etc. The job he did last year was remarkable. However, there are things that are automatic to guys that have been playing their entire lives that he isn't aware of yet. Things I don't know a coach at this level would think to coach.

    Well, seeing how he is probably the best option right now, they probably don't have much of a choice. I don't think they want to burn another high draft pick on a questionable lineman. I think they have their eyes on restocking the defensive side of the ball.

  • Clady has a worse injury history than Okung, and Okung was usually always hurt or rehabbing. I doubt he would play on a 1year deal either or for what JS might offer him.

    I agree with the observation he's done.

    I would say when both healthy, Clady was better than Okung. At this stage, Clady may not be an everydown LT but can still contribute on part time and to mentor Fant.

  • I go back and forth on this one. It's been a while since he was really good because of the injuries and I'm just not sure whether 2017 Clady is an upgrade.

    Britt has emerged as a great leader and I think I'd prefer them using money to extend him. Then you let the competition play out among the others for the Tackle and Guard spots.

    Really curious to see what the first OL lineup in minicamp looks like with the additions of Joeckel and Aboushi not to mention their plans for Ifedi and Odihambo in year 2.

  • The good news on Clady is that his 2016 injury wasn't a re-injury to the knee he blew out. It was a rotator cuff. The Jets fans I know say he was an upgrade to D'Brickshaw for the first few games.

    His knee has had a couple of years to heal, now. If he could be had for cheap, it could be a decent band-aid.

  • On the downside, one could say this would have been good news five years ago. On the upside, this will likely never be said about any of the current tackles on the team. That's got to be an improvement, right? Right?

  • Don't think Clady is an every down LT anymore, he may not even be elite at his current best. But he would be the perfect mate for Fant, if he could help Fant for a season or so sharing downs, Fant might just be good and ready by the second half of this season.

    If he is cheap and healthy, sign him.

    While I agree Clady might be a good role model for Fant, I don't think there is a such thing as a rotational LT or lineman for that instance. You either start or you sit the bench. Are we looking at Clady as depth for the Oline, maybe. I'm guessing if he is signed he will be given an opportunity to prove he can start full time.

  • Not ideal but doable, Fant sucked last season but he did have his moments which is something considering his background in football, or lack of. IF, and only IF Clady is healthy enough, then start Clady but let Fant take say 30% of the snaps in the beginning and gradually increase to 70% towards the end of season. Assuming Fant show decent progress of course. That way, we also save Clady for the post season.

    I am not convinced that either Fant or Clady are every down LT at this point of their respective career. I rather take change on these two than Joeckel on LT because Joeckel was given seasons to develop as LT and failed miserably. But Joeckel was adequate as guard, and we need guard upgrade to help our running game.

  • That's not really how it works in the NFL. It is all about cohesion. Soemthing Schneider mentioned several times during his presser at the combine. Unless you are doing it experimentally to see who plays better in game situations and at that point it would be in small sample sizes. Even in that circumstance I have only witnessed one team ever do it, although I am sure there might have been more and their track record with OL play is suspect at best.

    Clady played 8 games and gave up 2 sacks last year. If we only got that production for 8 games it is well worth it.

  • I love the idea of bringing Clady in. The line was historically bad last year and some consider it one of the worst ever. If a guy can come in and even has a chance of being an upgrade then we should do it. I'm not sold Fant can ever be a starter in this league but if he has a ton of potential let him learn for a year or two without getting Wilson killed. I love the effort the team has presented in trying to fix the position. Hopefully at least 1 or more players stick and offer an upgrade.

    Evidently the coaches didn't think so and neither did I so there ya go. And I don't want any WASHED UP player on my team, that is where we differ, oh and I'm actually not down on every single player on the team like you are according to your posts.

  • How do you know the coaches don't think he's better than Fant? I would argue they thought he could be or they wouldn't of brought him in. Maybe we end up signing him or maybe he wanted too much money or like you said maybe they do think Fant is better although I don't think Fant ends up starting with or without Clady to be honest. I personally like Fant as a project(maybe) but I hate the idea of him starting again. We have a generational QB and I don't want to see his prime wasted by running for his life anymore.

  • Pain free, and ready to roll with FANT.

    Dude is going to improve as well as the rest of the line. I actually feel good about it this year which is way more than any of the years since Hutch and Walt left.

    Having Clady in for a visit is/was window dressing. A washed up former elite player that has no business on a team of young/hungry players.

  • I do think the line does much better this year but it won't be with Fant. I'll be shocked if he's starting. But if I'm wrong and he is starting that means he got drastically better and has earned it. I hope he proves me wrong.
