Couldn't agree more, the man could very well set off a domino effect.I'm a line guy... it's almost a fetish.
But obtaining Eichenberg might be the piece that really generates the best return. If it goes as we hope, and if Eichenberg plays Right Tackle at a plus level... right away, and Hunt thrives (as many think he will) at RG, Tua will have more time, maybe LOTS more time to find 2nd and 3rd reads.
This will allow Tua to settle, to process, and to lose the jitters that plagued him last year. Tua with time could resemble Brees with time... and that's money.
If Eichenberg can hold his own from day one, it allows Hunt to stay at R-guard (Where I believe he's an All-pro in the making...man is just plain nasty at guard).
Keep Hunt at R-Guard, that allows Solomon Kindley to play at his more natural guard position on the left side, and with him having come in better shape (Sorry Omar...failed again), he will be able to last the season better.
On one side of Kindley we have a Linemen in Austin Jackson that that is green, but loads of talent and athleticism who is growing into the position, and the other side you have the a Center in Matt Skura who has loads of experience If his body can hold up.
The line will be the key to the offense.
