Re: Incognito Could Take Center Stage
I like the potential of Goldberg at guard or if we use Steussie at G he would become our back up tackle. He has alot of experience as a starter at both guard and both OT positions. He is 6'7 310 26 years old listed as OT going into third year in the league. Started the final 12 games last year for Minnesota at right guard. The year before he made six starts during the regular season, as he proved to be the Vikings’ best backup at tackle, and started both playoff games. Has played in 29 games starting 18 in his first two full years in the league. He has youth, experience, and strength going for him I would say start him at Guard. He started the final 12 games last year at Guard. He also won the poll I had for who the new OL man should be. It went as follows:
Goldberg 26yrs old 6'7 310 14Votes
Turner 24yrs old 6'2 295 10Votes
Setterstrom 22yrs old 6'4 314 7Votes
Steussie 35yrs old 6'6 310 3Votes
