Colin Brown was truly having a turn-style type season for the Buffalo Bills at left guard at the beginning of the year.
As soon as he was healthy enough, Doug Legursky assumed the starting left guard role and was a major upgrade.
Having said that, Legursky usually gets beat badly a couple times a game. While he has had some tough match-ups, the Bills should want more from that position. The Bills brass way overestimated their talent level of their interior line and dumped all their preseason back-ups they went into camp with.
Since then, the Bills have rotated street free agents on and off the roster. Right now, backing up Doud Legursky, Kraig Urbik and center Eric Wood are giant linemen. Antoine McClain, a college tackle out of Clemson with one year of NFL training was the first back up to, "stick," so far.
Later, the Bills brought iback former Buffalo Bills draft pick Mark Asper a center out of Oregon.
They both have now been on our roster well over a month now.
My point is clear, if Antoine McClain and Mark Asper are showing signs of some talent, the Buffalo Bills bye-week presented a huge opportunity to upgrade their line.
if Doug Legursky loses no snaps to either it is not a good sign for our current O-line depth and the Bills will have to address a weak position even moreso next offseason.
This offseason, depending on the health of Chris Hairston, the Bills will need to bring in two to three prime candidates for the O-line; that is if Doug Legursky is still the unquestioned starter this Sunday.
