I kind of hope Niang is going to be LT. He certainly has the ability.
It would make the starter comment from his agent seem more plausible.

I'm praying that Long beats out LDT for the RG position.

The question for me is Long's utility. I would like to see him at RG but if the Chiefs think he's the first backup at multiple positions, will they sit him instead to maintain continuity in the event of injury?

I mean....Iíd rather have him start at RG if heís better than LT and then move him to RT if we need him.

I mean for all we know...they could be looking to see how Schwartz does with his back and bring him back to start over Remmers.

I have no clue whatís going on anymore.

Andy's said many times that he believes in playing the best 5. I don't see how Long isn't in that group if he's healthy.

What’s everyone’s percentage for Niang being the LT?

25%? 50%?

I hope you're right but sometimes the best 5 isn't really the best 5 when it comes to the offensive line, see also: the SB.

Tough to pick out the best 5 when none of them are in the best 10.

:-)

My point is that offensive line play is interdependent and synergistic. Sometimes your best 5 individuals might not be your best unit.

Iíll put it at 40% until they sign a vet.

The shitty thing is I donít know that the team is going to say anything before the draft. Weíll know where they put Niang by the time itís over.

Thatís exactly why we should just stay patient and trust the process. We might not know what their plans are, but they sure do.

0% they play Niang at LT.

They're gonna draft or trade for one.
