How has Silatolu progressed?

68 posts in this topic

I think Gross has at least another season or two left in him, and I think he also means too much to this team as a veteran presence. If he restructures and the team continues to win, I'd love to see Chance Warmack plug that Ava Devine-sized gape at RG.

MHS's post helped me understand though why Silatolu was getting bodied so bad against Denver. There was a particular play where Clemons, Wagner, and the DT came off the edge and Silatolu didn't engage the DT (or was it Wagner?) who got a free shot at Gross, which knocked him off of his man and left DWill to have to choose which player got to hit Cam :/ It also explains why a majority of Silatolu's big blocks come when he's free to go level whomever Gross is protecting against. Good post dude!

don't know what you guys were watching. Bell looked good at gaurd to me. Then again I have no idea because I don't watch the Oline. I just like to talk out of my ass. Continue on with your discussion

Bell seems to be better as a run blocker than a outside pass blocker. i would look to send him to a OG slot than an OT. But only if they could find a better replacement for ROT.

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 is looking better than he did early in the season. Though, he continues to get beat with schemes - not physicality. Once he gets the mental aspect he'll be a good pick up. But don't forget, he played LT in college. So he's not just coming from a small time school to the NFL. He's coming from a small school (subpar competition) and he's changing positions.

some good posts here, thanks. Early on, I was scared we made a big mistake with a second round pick,

but I kept telling myself, he's a rookie, give him time.

just wanted to hear someone say he really is getting better.

Bell is weak against speed guys on pass pro, but when he gets his hands on them they're done. He really looks a lot like Otah did his rookie year. Much improved but a little rough around the edges still.

If you think silatolu is good, you got dropped on your head too many times, in fact and abundant amount of retarded times to the point that you are a basketball.

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

I have heard this garbage on just about every player on the team.Why don't you back it up with some measurable stats that we can make sense of .

I admit I am not good at evaluating OL talent but the everyone on the team sucks attitude is a waste of time.

Maybe someone needs to drop you on your head

Just watch him play. There's no stats he's damn lineman, unless you count penalties which i know he's up there. He gets no push and gets beat inside all the time. It might have gotten better recently, but the whole line is garbage.
