    This was done by a poster on packershome.com..


    Watch how TJ performs vs the Lions

    YouTube - blatze1's Channel




    Watch how he performs vs Allen

    YouTube - blatze1's Channel


    Now his take on the Vikings game


    You have to watch the videos to really understand this..It really does look like that TJ can play the LT spot..Granted it was only 40 plays, on average he seems to be okay for the job...

    Oops... Anyway, you found it. Maybe I would've taken the credit, if it were me... Nah ;)

    But about Lang, I think there're two different factors (one leads to two conclusions) that make it hard to compare with other linemen:

    1.1) He didn't start any games, so he played against already tired DL. Specially true against Det, which had NO rotation, to the point that they had to use an offensive lineman as a DT.

    1.2) Because he didn't start, he had no chemistry with the QB, as well as his teammates, so anything he did, with proper gametime, will get better.

    2) He didn't practice much as LT. Specially true against Min, where he was thrown under the bus (Jared Allen), and had to perform.

    I liked when we drafted him, but never projected him as LT. Guard, RT at best. He is surprising me. Considering all, and also taking into account Clifton's injury, he has played better than Clifton...

    I posted a video of him from packershome.com

    And someone did say maybe he was brought in when the D was already tired..

    So now we will see how he is right from the get go..

    but might not be a true test as the Browns might have 4th stringers in

    I pointed that out.
    Rogers is going to play. Williams is going to play. I don't know if Wimbley will. But still, Clifton started against the Lions, without 2 DL, and they lost one, so they put an OL out there, and still performed badly.

    I don't think we're in a position to be demanding. A good performance in a valid game should be praised, and rewarded with titularity, independent of the adversary.
