Here's the Brodie Croyle highlight film from yesterday's game.

The last play features LJ scoring off a draw, and guess who breaks into the second level to negate none other than Brian ****ing Urlacher to spring LJ?

I really like Taylor. I don't think he's a starting LT in this league, but he's a solid run blocker with swift feet. I just don't think he is nimble enough to keep up with elite DEs. He is a serviceable backup LT, however. One that we could have for an extremely long time, maybe he could challenge Richardson for RT next year.

I think it was milkman and I who've been touting Taylor as a candidate to surprise some people this year. I hope Taylor sticks around for a long time on this team; I honestly don't remember the last time we had adequate depth on OL.

I like taylor also and would like to see him replace Macintosh.

I could see our line flesh out like this by the end of the year.

All the reports right now from fans and experts alike are that Richardson is a great runblocker but he hasn't displayed the swiftness just yet to be a great pass blocker.

Hell... that sounds like a guard to me!

Taylor is a tackle through and through. RT might be his gig, where he can take on more powerful DEs rather than swifter bastards at LT. I know it's just one game, but the possibilities are really exciting.

Yes, they'll just move him to guard in the middle of the season.

I've said no such thing.

Good grief, you are getting nine kinds of touchy these past few days.

I'd think you'd be embracing optimism.

No. I had zero offers for a quick bathroom f*ck in the airports. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

There is another player on the line you could have said that about.

I really like Taylor. I don't think he's a starting LT in this league, but he's a solid run blocker with swift feet.

So you've determined that after one preseason game, he's not a LT "in this league"? WTF?

FWIW, Taylor was rated among the top 10 left tackles available in the 2007 draft by several credible draft sources and publications. Expecting a second year, 6th round draft to be the second coming of Willie Roaf is a expecting too much.

But it *appears* that it's "clicked" with Taylor and that he may become a solid LT for some NFL squad.

I don't think Taylor's really suited for this system. The Broncos might be able to use him. He's a good starter in a pinch for the Chiefs, though. He can certainly pass block.

I think he played a couple of snaps when you went to pee.

I saw Brad Cottam take a leak during training camp. He just walked over to the tent they had set up and wizzed in a gatorade tank.
