Dude, it is easy as **** to tell if a LT is one on one with a guy in pass protection. Stop this shit.

Continuity on the offense line is huge. Therefor, there isn't any reason not to either tag Albert and see about his back, or sign him if it checks out.

and If Albert really gets the technique down, this would not even be debatable.
Here is where we disagree, Long is a huge upgrade outside of a ZBS but I'll agree that he isn't worth the trouble if we stay zone blocking.

To me it all comes down to how much money Albert is going to want. I'd pay him top 10 even top 8 money but not top 5.

I'd like to see Albert given a big contract with a big roster bonus due the third year.

That way, he gets a nice bump in pay to keep him happy and in town while giving the team the option to walk away if his back keeps him off the field.

One thing I am sure of, though, Long is as overrated at LT as any in the last 20 years.
He completely manhandled Tamba Hali like a little doll.

OK.

How many sacks do you think Albert allowed this year? Or are you just not smart enough to tell?

It's interesting that anyone thinks Jake Long is even in play for the Chiefs. They won't even contact his agent, I guarantee it.

It's almost like...someone has a Jake Long bias...and a dream of Jake Long in red.

I think Hudson is a quality C and we shouldn't give up on him.

You won't find many interior OL that have better fundamentals than him. He's going to be a solid and reliable OL for years to come.

This was one of the few Pioli draft picks that I actually thought was a good move.

And Hali has owned Ryan Clady.

Sometimes it just about how individuals match up with each other.

Hali has a nice initial burst, but he's more about power than speed, so he owns Clady, while Long is more physical, so he struggles against him.

There are, and have been, very few players that match up with both speed and power on either side.

Albert is still a work in progress, but has the physical attributes to eventually be that type of player.

Long doesn't.

Often it is. Sometimes it isn't. Depends on the play and the complexity of the blocking scheme. My point being, the ONLY people who can accurately create a metric for a given offensive line are the people inside that organization who know what was called and what the responsibilities were. Otherwise you are guessing. Most of those guesses will probably be right, but they are still guesses. If you look at an organization like PFF and how they handle their guesses you can see just how unscientific it really is.

NOBODY KNOWS HOW MANY SACKS ANYONE GIVES UP! IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL!!!

THEREFORE ALL OPINIONS ARE FORFEIT!

WE CANNOT TELL IF ANYONE IS BETTER THAN ANYONE BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW ANYTHING.

And I really hope Branden Albert's back problems are minor. It would ****ing suck ass if Albert's back problems turned into a problem like Jared Gaither's.

No, it's obvious you are the one who isn;t smart enough to follow along. It has nothing to do with how smart I am, it has to do with INFORMATION I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO you ****ing moron. At best, I can make an educated guess. That's all anyone outside the Chiefs can do.
