Playoff Offensive Line Starters
Reiff LT, Berger LG, Elflein C, Remmers RG,
Let me tell you that Berger would absolutely hate being moved from right guard,
to center, then to left guard but he will do it because he knows that that will give
our offensive line the best chance to win. He also knows that he's the
most versatile player that we have on the offensive line because where ever you
put him we don't lose a beat. In fact, you could say that he's so good
that he was playing at a pro-bowl level in 2016 at center. Obviously, there is one major drawback that I can think
of and that is his career may be coming to an end & we will miss his
versatility like no other. He is the very definition of a Pro's Pro &
not one commentator will ever notice or mention his sacrifice to this team
because every time he has to be moved it lumps on incredible pressure &
responsibility onto his shoulders that only he can understand.
Considering Sirles at left guard is will not be anywhere as effective.
Remmers is most effective on the right side of that line as he's been on that
side all year. He also has one game working with Hill on the right &
they most certainly appear to be capable.
In addition, if next year Easton does come back as our left guard & if
Berger decides to retire, then your right guard is most likely going to be
manned by Remmers. Some say that Remmers arms are not long enough to
dominate at right tackle but all that bother goes away playing right
guard. If the long term plan is to have Elflein at center with Reiff at
LT, where it makes sense to have both Remmers & Hill on the field at the
same time then the above alignment means invaluable experience to the long term
plans of this franchise. Is Hill a better right tackle than Remmers?
Well that might still be up for debate but both Hill & Remmers playing on
the right side makes everyone a bunch of clairvoyant smart guys.
