Nice article this morning by Lori Nickel at jsonline. For a while now, we’ve been talking about the presence of Josh Sitton at RG and how he’s not been merely adequate, but rather super impressive. I honestly thought he deserved at least consideration for the Pro Bowl. He does have a bit of nasty in him as Colledge (who is not nasty) says and it really seems he rarely makes errors as Philbin points out.
(As a “writer”, if I had written an article on Sitton, I might have tried to obtain feedback from scouts or personnel from other teams. Getting opinions from outside the organization might have added a little punch to the general argument that Sitton is high quality. Or, even getting quotes from guys on our team who have more credibility talking O-Line stuff than Philbin and Colledge like a veteran like Tauscher/Clifton or McCarthy or even our defensive players who practice against him. I’m being petty I know – but that’s due in large part to my curiosity about what other teams think of lining up against Sitton…I just think he’s so good.)
