Gee, a 33-year-old OT who got cut from the worst team in football, and he thinks it has to be a "mutual" fit.

How's this for a mutual fit, bozo? We give you money and in return, you STFU, be thankful, and pretend you can still play.

He will sign with the Pats if they make him an offer, just like everyone else.

Sims was a solid Offensive Tackle in his younger years. I question whether or not we should plug another aging tackle into this line.

Yes, I know our line is really young. However, this line has been plagued by its age and poor pass protection for a decade.

I feel that the line will be a learning experience that Gaithers should be apart of now in the starting lineup.

Many of us as fans have waited for the youth movement on the line for some time. We were disappointed when Flynn was kept over Rabach,which ultimately lead to the Chris Chester situation which has only been bailed out because Yanda can be a solid RG in place of Brown who will now be the center(Though Brown played alot of LG he would have been RG this year).

Brian Billick did not make changes until he absolutely had to and lost touch with many situations as a result. I do not want Harbaugh to make the same mistake.I will alway respect Brian Billick for standing up with confidence(nice way of putting it) in the face of the league when nobody gave a darn about the Ravens and nobody outside of Modell(league wise) even wanted the Baltimore Ravens. Nevertheless, certain mistakes simply cannot be overcome and his management of youth and age was a big one. Harbaugh has to be smarter than that and I hope Cameron is as well.
