But, bottom line, I really think we could use an upgrade from Howard. He's better than Hunter was in 11', but so was everybody in the NFL who started at RT in 12'. If Moore comes back (and is healthy) and we can find a RT starter in the draft, I'd be OK with having Howard as a swing tackle.
There was 0 difference between Howard and Hunter IMO people just liked him more. Howard would have made a better G IMO. At least better then Slauson. People are all how are we going to replace these guys why? I can throw a rock into a Wendys and find that find of talent. At worst we gamble on a no name and still find someone better then those guys IMO.
