With the injuries to Heitmann and Rachal and the good play of Baas and Snyder being talked about, it got me thinking of a three-way battle for the right guard position.
Firstly they need to figure out who they want at center out of Heitmann and Baas (sort out your shotgun snap son!).
Then I was wondering, does the loser of the contest at center have a right to contend for the right guard spot with Rachal and Snyder?
Remember, Heitmann established himself as a player in the NFL by playing guard from 2002-05, and played quite well there from memory, although it was a while ago.
Baas has played at guard extensively the past few years as we all know.
Rachal is good when he's on, but those moments aren't frequent enough.
Snyder impressed me against the Saints in both protection and opening up holes. It was certainly one of his best games in my opinion.
What are your guys thoughts? What would you like to see?
Personally I would like Baas to work out at centre and Rachal to show consistent good play at RG. I say this due to the fact that they're young, so it bodes well for the future.
...mods I know there are OL threads, but I'm talking about this position specifically. Feel free to merge though.
