He is probably the worst player starting on the team right now. He was getting beat nearly every play whether in the run or in the pass. Osemele has a bright future ahead of him at RT and Oher would is not the type of player to make the switch to Guard.

I say trade him this offseason to the Cardinals for a 3rd or 4th round pick. Sign Jake Long who struggled this year and suffered an injury. He should come at a low price and i'm sure will be much much better than Oher will ever be.

i don't think its worth it but i definitely don't want him at LT. someone find a LT so he and KO can play their natural positions.

I'm waiting for the Oher fans to come out. I wonder if things have changed since my original thread against him.

Long will still command a large contract and is becoming injury prone ,

He started great this year, but has totally dropped off these last few games. The oline needs reshuffled. He needs moved to left guard, and we need a left tackle.

Do you think KO would be a better G than Oher

I've been saying this for the last 2 years. Oher is too much of a liability in pass protection. He is a capable run blocker, this is why he was playing RT in years past, but if you watched him at RT during passing plays, he is just as awful pass protecting. Back up players in the NFL can pass protect better at RT. So obviously, he is too much of a liability at LT and at best a RT if he starts. But my argument is that the guy just isn't a starter in the NFL. If we want to be a versatile offense that can also pass the ball, we cannot start Oher at all. Osemelie looks to be a solid future starter, in fact he could possibly become the Ravens long term LT with more experience. I think Jah Reid looked pretty good at RT, from the little i saw from him as a rookie last season, and has potential to be our long term RT even. This is why i thought the best position for Oher is to move inside to LG. He has the skills to be a good LG and wouldn't be responsbile for picking up pass rushers from the outside. Obviously if we could trade him and get something it would be great, but i don't think he is worth much and we are still looking for a long term LG, why not just use Oher?

Oher is fine. Has plenty of potential..... Put him back at RT next year. Go for Jake Long. Never worry about protecting Joe again.

Exactly. Dumb people force square pegs in round holes. This team is terrible plain and simple. I will give him the fact Joe made zero line adjustments on two sacks where there were 5 blitzers....but Oher was a turnstyle.

The only problem is that Cam Cameron is trying to be conservative, so he convinced Oz to do this as well.

Honestly, i'd rather have Osemele at RT than Oher. Oher was getting beat on the right side and Osemele is doing better and he's only a rookie.

The way its looking, if Yanda's injury is serious, we may have to slide Osemele inside to RG. Unless they just stick with Bobbie Williams there. I hope not though.

1) Birk is by far the worst starter he provides almost no protection.
2) You are out of your mind if you think we could afford an All-Pro caliber LT.
3) You are out of your mind if you think Long would come at a low price.
4) How would you know he is not the type of player to switch to guard?
5) Why would you trade one of our very few serviceable tackles since you know we would have zero depth if we traded him?

I want to get Long, but thats Unrealistic to an extreme
