Don't most teams usually sit out their starters in preseason?

Nothing serious, he sat out like two plays then returned to practice.

Turn to ESPNU right now and watch Kugbila. They are replaying DII title game. He is not that impressive.

You like seeing this?

Ofcourse not. I guess what im trying to say is yes a O line is important. But its also not a dealbreaker for a winning season as the Bears and Packers both prove.

it is when your most important player goes down. how is this not making sense to you. Cam was running for his life for most games last year and he still put up ridiculous numbers. Now imagine him with a solid o-line.

The first game well see them for a bit, third game is generally the most played by starters. Around a half and maybe a bit into the third quarter

I think the line has the biggest question mark other than the secondary.  The difference between the OL and the secondary is that the secondary has 7 promising players that are standing in front of them facing the opposing players.  The OL on the other hand is the protector of the backfield.  That said they are of huge concern. 

 

The good news is that the upward trajectory of Silatolu and Bell is promising. Bell was bad last year but improved from the prior year.  Hopefully both of these guys get better.  If they do not then as of today we have no one behind them that is serviceable for any type of duration. 

 

I think we need a vet or 2.

    • Speaking of golf, CJ and Tiger Woods had a similar back surgery.   
    • To be fair football is a team sport with a bunch of different players on both sides. By all accounts Elliot was sensational last year but the Cowboys still lost their first playoff game..  I don't think anyone's expecting for Fournette to be the primary reason why we could make a deep playoff run. If anything yes he'll take pressure off Cam and make our ground game better. But looking back at that 2015 season, one of the key things is that our defense kept causing turnovers and getting our offense advantageous field position, and also the Oline was healthy and good things happened for the most part. We get back to winning the turnover battle and keep the line healthy somehow, probably a winning record and a decent playoff run.
    • No, I didn't. You are the one who is losing poo here and acting like 13 year girl on her first period.  Grow up.
