The Hawks have had some great Offensive Linemen since the Late 90's and into the 2000's. Jones, Hutchinson, Kendall, Tobeck, Okung, Unger. It's a pretty solid list actually. The one guy who never gets mentioned, especially when talking about the great 2005 team, is Chris Gray. Gray was that dude who looks absolutely nothing like a pro football player and exactly like the local beer distributor. Funny thing is Gray actually holds the Seahawks record for most consecutive starts, with 121. He played right guard extensively, but also played every other position on the line during his 10+ years with the Hawks. Safe to say Gray was a tad bit overlooked...
Remind you of anybody? Paul McQuistan, right down to the "wait, this dude's in the NFL?!", look on his face. McQuistan's the guy that everyone's always going to want to replace but the guy who will always be a fixture in the lineup. Paul McQuistan is Chris Gray 2.0.
Moffitt and Sweezy will probably compete for the job at RG all offseason, with Carp trying to unsettle McQuistan at LG. However, if Carp looks the best of the Young 3, don't be surprised if he gets the job at LG next to Okung and McQuistan shifts to RG with Moffitt and Sweezy to the bench as some quality depth. Phat Pauly McQ just strikes me as the consummate professional who coaches and teammates respect. I'm pretty sure Tom Cable loves him. We were wondering when we'd find our next Walter or our next Hass, and it seems we finally found them. Looks like we found our next Chris Gray in the process.
*Still not completely sure why I just took time out of my life to write about Paul McQuistan or Chris Gray. Just another day in the life of a Seahawks junkie I guess*
