Good article about our newest addition.

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20121115/SPORTS01/311150091/Lutui-adds-dash-fun-Titans-offensive-line?odyssey=tab%7Ctopnews%7Ctext%7CSports%20Tennessee%20Titans&nclick_check=1

I think he was a great addition, LeRoy is not what this team needed. Has anyone noticed how he's been playing? I haven't noticed much but as an offensive line we've looked good for the last couple weeks. Should we keep this guy is he capable of being a solid starter for the next couple years?

IMO, we should go with Roos-Hutchinson-Amano-Harris-Stewart next year.

*IMO: In Munchak's opinion

One of Harris or Amano won't be coming back, unless Lutui & Velasco get signed away and we don't draft a 1-2nd round replacement. I think the team is more likely to stick with Harris, given his youth and SUBSTANTIALLY smaller contract than Amano.

I think Munch & co. are leaning far more heavily to resigning Velasco and Lutui (if Lutui continues playing well). Velasco especially- he's really made strides over the season and is definitely playing better than Amano did the last two years.

Lutui is more of a mystery- the team is definitely going to be going drafting a few late round guards, maybe even a high round one, given how [inappropriate/removed] Harris has been and Hutch's age.

I think there is a good chance Harris gets cut and Amano stays, since Amano can swing all three positions (and imo, was a much better guard than center). I still think the current lineup is the best we can do- Lutui and Velasco are a clear improvement over Amano and Harris.

Im in favor of finding a new Center an Guard. I can live with Harris but wouldnt mind someone else and Amano is as good as gone if Velasco can finish strong to end the year

I guarantee it'll be Roos-Hutchinson-Velasco-Stewart.

The only ? for next year will be who plays RG. Lutui played well Sunday, if he keeps it up he'll be back next year, though I honestly wouldn't object to Leroy Harris. Harris started to improve the past few weeks prior to his injury. Either way, we appear to be in pretty good shape on the o-line. Just need to worry about grooming someone to take over for Hutch when he decides to retire.

I don't watch offensive lineman much, and I don't know how to grade them. So I was wondering if anyone in here who knows could tell me how he's been doing? I mean the line has looked good the last couple games and lanes have been opening up.

I thought LeRoy was one of the three stooges, why would we want him back we could get finally have no Amano-Scott-Harris that would be a good change.

Harris is one I would not like back. Everyone hated Amano because he was our worst lineman when we had Mawae, but he really wasn't that bad at guard. He was bad about getting holding penalties but wasn't a horrible run blocker.

Draft one to replace Hutchinson and let Harris Amano and Lutui fight over RG.

Absolutely agree. Let Catfish go be a detriment to someone else's line. Our line as it is right now, pardon my hyperbole, but they look great. Velasco looks to be our guy at center. Lutui I haven't noticed him much at all so I'd say that's a good thing Laughing . Like TitanLegend was saying, it should be Roos-Hutch-Velasco-?-Stewart. ?= Lutui and Amano competing for that spot next year IMO.

Moral of the story: Velasco should be resigned at some point in the very near future. Just no reason to even risk letting him hit the market at this point.
