The problem with that is that the Center is responsible for the calls and reads on the offensive line. I don't think Baas can handle those responsibilities. He may have been an OK college center but the NFL is a whole different beast.
"Baas was the only player in the country to be named finalist for two of the three awards presented to linemen."
You were saying?
It was said MANY times that he was drafted with Center in mind.
And sorry but as much as I respect Martz Offensive mind, He also though JTO was the best QB on our roster. How'd that work out again?
I like Heitman I just think that knowing the schemes is NOT even close enough to being a solid Center. So you help a guy that can be a solid Center catch up in the terminology and the schemes.
There is nothing wrong with sliding him to the Right and Rachal to Baas Left, picking up a solid FA player and drafting for the future. As much as these guys get injured it's only the smart thing to do.
I can show you instance for instance where Hymen is gettin busted all day long. No, I do not expect perfection but when a house runs past you something is rotten in denmark. Corva I respect what you're saying but there are too many instances when Heitman fails epically.
If he's still our Starting Center and the same things keep happening I'm going to get his Jersey from NFL shop.com and have Hymen stenciled on it. Then I'm going to send it to him to wear. Either Coach will get the message or EH will fix it.
