According to the Stats, Our Offensive Line Sucks

I think a lot of our struggles came from Amini and Piggy IMO, mixed that with running the damn read option 79% of the time. I think if we ran out of the I formation more often we would have a better running game. As for the pass blocking, run Cam run.

Biggest killer was moving to the zone read/option style. You're asking 3 established vets to change what they're doing. It would be similar if we went to a zone blocking scheme. It's not going to happen overnight AND not everyone can change.

Amini was awful early and that directly effects both sides of him, Gross and Ryan paid for that. Take Hangartner who should be a back up and make him a starter next to a C that already has yo babysit the LG he's not going to be as effective either.

However, Bell isn't getting his due. He's been very good. Good to the point that if we were to acquire a LT I'd rather dump Gross that do anything with Bell.

A lot of this can be attributed to the overall ineptitude of our scheme for the first half of the year. Not only was the scheme not working, but our Oline was struggling to block for it properly, which made it even worse.

As we've changed the way that we've tried to run the ball to a more successful style our run blocking has improved as well. Crazy how that works.

The problem was two fold, IMO, bad scheme design and youthful/sucky linemen. They aren't as bad as the numbers suggest, but they aren't great either. I would say that had we run the run blocking scheme, that we are now, from the beginning of the year, we would be somewhere in the middle of the pack.

All of this and Cam is still playing like the best QB in the league

Ha, no. Bob Griffin AKA Ed from Good Burger is the best in the NFL. According to every Skins fan in North and South Carolina. Duh!

Amini silatolu is our worst linemen. i re watched the game today an he was constantly losing his blocking battles and getting pushed backwards. Hopefully he can improve but i'm skeptical he can be a starting NFL linemen
