Brooks: I Think Eagles Offensive Line Will Be Consistent
The Eagles have shuffled their offensive line in response to the impending potential suspension of starting Right Tackle Lane Johnson. They shifted Allen Barbre to Right Tackle and subbed in Rookie Isaac Seumalo at Left Guard. Barbre has only started 8 games at the Tackle position in his NFL career while Seumalo started 9 Games at Guard during his Senior season at Oregon State.
Barrett Brooks of CSN Philly is a former Offensive Lineman in the NFL for 9 seasons joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and gave his analysis of the refurbished Eagles Offensive Line:
"I think that they'll be consistent, you know they're not necessarily going to be blowing anyone off the ball. I think (Allen) Barbre's going to go over there and do an OK job at the Right Tackle position, they're not going to ask him to be 'all-world', they're going to make sure they keep a Tight End his side just to protect him a little bit on Pass plays. On Run plays they're going to try to make him the backside just so they don't put him in a position where he's not going to be successful. I think that's what you have to do, you have to hide him a little bit. But it's going to be tough because you got a Rookie (Isaac) Seumalo also starting at the Left Guard position. Just the fact you have him with Jason Peters on the one side of him and Jason Kelce on the other side so he'll do OK. He's getting better and better as he is learning more and more of the offense. At this point I don't see him being an All-Star but he has the potential right now to be a solid starter in this league."
