Thanks. His productivity is key I think to where we address our draft next year.
Just a note to some board members about rookies.

The practice squad allows guys who show potential to play in the NFL down the road to improve their game. Few practice squad players are grabbed by other teams, since they would have to put them directly on their 53 man roster.

As much as many board members think Barry Sims is the worst player in history, he is a guy who has been around the league a long time and knows how to play the game, can play both LT and RT (which is enormously important for backups), and is an older guy to add stability to a young line.

Teams simply don't keep unprepared and undrafted rookies on their 53 man roster, just because they have potential down the road. Either you can play right now, or you are not going to be on the 53 man roster.

Although Boone may provide a better long-range prospect than Sims, you can't simply put him on the roster if he is not ready. And, from all reports, he is simply not ready to play right away in the NFL.

So, even if you personally hate Sims, the bottom line is that he can help the team much more in 2009 than Boone.
Sorry, keeping short because Sims is unworthy of lengthy discussion, but he flat out sucks and should not get a spot over Boone or even Bender.

And where are you reading these reports about Boone?

Thank you!

I would love to see Boone develop into a good tackle, but the key word is develop. He is just not ready...

Don't overlook Kyle Howard. He can play multiple positions on the line.

Who the hell is Kyle Howard??
