    Leinart is left handed and his blind side will be the right side. Considering he doesn't have great scramlbing ability, it seems they would want there best OL at RT.
    Any thoughts?

    All we need inorder for us to get Leinart is for N.O to like Cutler or Young? Also there are rumblings that the N.O might go after one of the FA Qbs(Brees,Kitna)

    I was on the first season of THE BIGGEST LOSER on NBC

    Do teams traditionally move their speed rusher to the opposite side if they face a lefty? I wouldn't think so. You'd still want your best OT again him.

    I don't get the question? Roos has shown his versatility. You don't have a LT just because he's on the left hand side, you get him for his movement. So if has enough agility for the left hand side, and he's played on the right - why wouldn't we just keep him there?

    Maybe he's more natural on the left. I don't know.

    But if we do have a left handed QB, then having a good pass blocker on the right would certainly be more of a concern since it would be his blind side.

    That's true. It's just that I feel like it'll be Leinart to N.O...

    No. Your best OT needs to protect the blind side, regardless of where they line up their DE's.

    Do the Falcons switch their offensive line up when Vick gets hurt and Matt Schaub plays? No. You dont automatically put your best tackle on the QBs blind side. Some linemen are better suited to one side rather than the other. We're lucky in that Roos seems versatile.
