I have no ability to determine how o-linemen are doing unless they're getting
blown past for sacks.

I know at the start of the season he was pretty shakey. Has he improved?

Do you think he was worth a second round pick?

61 helps 34 out for TD. still a rookie, give him time.

I'm seeing a rookie progression similar to Bell, which bodes well for next season.

Amini was dreadful early on but has making gains in the run-blocking department. I still think his pass blocking needs some work, though.

he's been improving the past two weeks but it's hard to say for sure. The line is in shambles and truthfully the Falcons and Chargers both seemed like they were on Valium.

this guy is garbage and shouldn't be starting. We need to bring in veteran offensive lineman who aren't cut for sucking.

Err false, and ignoring your assessment of Silatolu, god knows the market is just absolutely flooded with quality O-linemen with no team to play for.

All I know is every Sunday at least 3-5 times I see Bell barely touch the guy he's supposed to block before that guy levels Cam

For the life of me I can't figure out why people are so high on Bell. It's like they are still evaluating him based on the expectations of a UDFA, not a starting NFL tackle.

Bell has a difficult time stopping the faster and more aggressive edge rushers. If he gets contact with the DE though he's good but like you said that's the issue.

He has had his bad games to go with the good ones, more of the latter. Hopefully he will continue to trend upward
