Jah Reid had a good game. I have been waiting to see him play. He is huge and athletic, I'm pretty sure we could put him at either tackle or guard.

Our line could be amazing in the coming years, Imagine:
Reid-Osemele-Gradkowski-Yanda-Oher
Domination.

Its good to see the big boy get some burn. If Gino works out we could have a line that will be there for a few seasons to really and improve every season. That is unless some one pulls a Grubbs on us and bail for dollars. Ahhh....I hate the Salary cap!!

To me, his play of the day was the Rice TD run. Reid made a great block on the 2nd level and Rice walked in. That's an area where I'd worry about Williams. Reid showed some speed to get past the initial hole and get to the LB quickly in front of Rice to make the block. I don't know if Williams would show that speed.

Jah did tremendous! he's a beast, he played like a pro! he really did,.. I felt much more confident the O-line the way they played, Lt- Oher, Lg-Jah Reid, C-Birk, Rg- Yanda and RT K.o, What a game bu the O-line and offense!

I wanted Jah reid to start right off the bat.... He;s big fast and he's athletic.... he has power in that big frame of his. He was a tackle in college but he's athletic enough to play guard.

I thought Jah played extremely well yesterday, and to me it seemed as though the pressure on Joe was almost completely gone once he came in the game to replace Williams. As a unit the line played a fantastic game though. I didn't yell, "JOE GET RID OF IT" nearly as many times as I typically do during a game. ={D>

Hopefully...Jah will continue to improve with increased PT and we can maul Pittsburgh into submission.

start reid, and for god sakes bench birk, seriously. casey hampton will have a field day with birk as does every above-average NT. i dont care how inexperienced Gino is, there is no possible way his inexperience is a big enough burden to outweigh matt birk getting manhandled on every run and pass play. if we throw just a little bit more youth in that interior, then we have the type of o-line to maul through any defense. its sad when our line is so big and strong, and we cant be successful running the ball because of 1 consistent factor, matt birks inability to stop strong rushers. jah looked good

I like the depth we are showing on the O-line. We're going to have a heck of a test here in the next several weeks. We need to give Joe as much time as possible for him to be at his best.

He did amazing, at being the size of a Right Tackle. If he could bulk up a bit, he could be a major asset at Left Guard for years to come.

Bobby hasn't been right all year and Ramon, so far hasn't been the answer...... It's a nice problem to have when guys are not just substituting but contributing. Thanks not a nice problem, it's a great problem!

I'm really liking the "switch-to-younger players" thing!! Get these young guys started, and they can build their cohesiveness for the future, while being successful now!!

Jah Reid is a BIG boy. I didn't realize it at first but he's 6-7, 335 lbs. That makes him the second tallest person on our team behind Bryant McKinnie. Bobby Williams, Ramon Harewood, and Bryant are all a little bit stockier but I can see if this guy starts to get some game action and some good practice under his belt that he'll turn out to be one of our better lineman. I mean, he was already #3 lineman in the Raiders game so just keep putting him out there! The Steelers are coming up that'll be a great test for our bud! Go Reid! Go Ravens!

[/quote] Ramon is not the answer at all.... Williams ankle is really bad.... Reid looks like the best soulotuion.

Ramon played well, but needs to learn the game more. Reid looks pretty good, leave him at LG and our line should be good for the season, with capable backups in Williams, Mckinnie, and Harewood. Lets goooooooooooooooo RAVENSS!!! I hope big ben gets well soon, but im glad well have that advantage next week at Heinz. Our secondary will be waiting for some gifts, Leftwich's slow release is like Reed's christmas gift lol

Why would they try him at LT?

Reid has been one of my favorites from the get-go. He's demonstrated so much anticipation in the past couple of years hoping to get his chance. The picture in my mind is seeing him listen to "starters" time after time as they came off the field to get a feel for what's happening in the game. I couldn't be happier for him.

Put Kelechi Osemele at LG to maul people and help out Oher, and Jah at RT. That would be a big,dominating line.

birk held off wilfork 3 weeks into the season, after around week 6 birk starts to crumble and his knees just turn into dust every season. if we see the pats in the playoffs this year, you will see wilfork once again manhandling birk. he is the reason why joe can NEVER step up in the pocket, because if our tackles are holding up long enough, hes getting pressure right in his face because birks probably on his way to the ground
