We have often discussed our weakest link and how they will prevent us from having a winning season. Let's talk about our strongest link and how they will lead us to glory.

 

For me the strongest link needs to be offensive line. Cam can accomplish great things if we give him a chance. Gross, Silatolu, and Kalil need to dominate. They all have the talent if they can stay healthy. Hangartner or one of the young guys needs to have a big year and Byron Bell needs to improve on his first two seasons. With our emphasis on the run game and traditional offense the offensive line is the key to our success.

 

Conventional wisdom says our strongest link is the DLine, however they will be relying heavily upon 2 rookies and a second year guy. Surely they will dominate the passing game but they may get out of position vs. the run.

I cant agree with that.  Our Oline got thwomped last year even at full strength.

our d-line has depth, we are not going to be relying heavily on 2 rookies.

 

and our o-line had many problems last year including play calling, injury, inexperience. we do have talent on the o-line though.

Linebackers should be scary good.

Either DL or linebackers.  If I knew Beason and Davis were going to be 100% all year I would go linebackers over the DL because of the youth on the DL.

Yeah, I agree Friz. Our OL, particularly the right side concerns me more than our supposedly subpar secondary.

The Giants made our oline look like bitches last year. They aren't the strength at this point. I'd have to say our strength is LB and DE.

cam and keek.

 

everything needs to be built around those two.

 

they've done a good job on defense. not so much on offense. OL and WR needs a whole lot of attention the next couple years.

To be fair, Chud was in max retard mode when our Oline was trying to block for 5+ seconds on a slow developing play.  Throw in a guard that was completely lost and a 2nd year rookie free agent tackle and thats not exactly the recipe for success.
