In 2008 @ LG

Procter started 11 games

Kosier started 3 games

Holland started 2 games

 

I know that a lot of different factors are involved, so that stats don't always tell the whole story.  In some games Romo was the QB, in others it was Johnson.  Some games MBIII started, other games it was Choice.  Some games were in the hot summer, others in the cold winter.  Some games on grass, some on turf.  Some games home, some away.  Some against stiff run defenses, other games against weaker run defenses....but here are the stats anyway:

 

Procter - 11 games - DAL's rushing attempts 259 for 1104 yards - average per rush 4.2

Kosier - 3 games - DAL's rushing attempts 92 for 498 yards - average per rush 4.4

Holland - 2 games - DAL's rushing attempts 50 for 211 yards - average per rush 4.2

 

Procter faced some tough run defenses: PHI twice, WAS, NYG twice, and BAL (all in the top 10 versus the run)

Kosier faced only one tough run defense: WAS (#8 versus run)

Holland faced only one tough run defense: PIT (#2 versus run)

 

What I don't know, is exactly how many sacks each player game up?

Pro Football Prospectus 2008 had this to say about Kosier one year ago: "Left guard Kyle Kosier is the weakest link on the line, but he gets by as a technician surrounded by great athletes."

Of these three (Kosier, Procter, and Holland), I'd rather see Kosier be the starter; but what I'd really like to see, is for us to draft BIG, ATHLETIC GUARD that can replace Kosier, protect Romo, and open wide holes for MBIII, Choice and Felix.

Any thoughts?
