What can be done about o-line?

59 posts in this topic

The problem is.. it's not 1 offensive lineman.  Bell, Williams, Silatolu..hell even Kalil is messing up. Gross is the only one playing well.  We are not blocking well on the run or pass.  Maybe it's coaching.  I'm not sure.  But you can't even blame 1 player.

 

You reap what you sow, expecting an undrafted player ( Gary Williams), 7th round pick (Bryon Bell) , and a DIV II prospect (Silatolu) to come in and solidify your offensive line is unrealistic. Look at the 49ers, the majority of their offensive linemen were first round picks. Panthers have to draft at least 2 offensive linemen in the 2014 draft.

This is exactly what i wanted to happen.

After this game I don't think Gman has a choice but to bring in a FA stopgap OL

We don't even have caliber backups.  Bad starters, nonexistent backups.  We need new bodies.  Random cheap vet stop gaps are better than what we have at RT and RG right now.

This OL is a dumpster fire.  X's and O's don't matter if you don't have the Jimmy's and the Joe's.  We don't have the personnel.  Period.  We can't compete with this OL unit.

In truth? Not much. It will be a weak link all season long.

Most of our starters should be backups and most of our backups should be watching the NFL from the comfort of their couches.

Oline is a joke. I'm really disappointed in gettlemen for not bringing in some help earlier in camp.

    • I also want to take this space of internet to announce that I'm still so fuging happy we got Monk. 
    • Not really a fan of MCW. Not even sure if he is better than Sessions tbh. I don't think Teague will want to be a backup much less take the MLE, but who knows- might not be a market for him. Livingston would be incredible but don't think we have the money and why would he leave Golden State unless they don't offer him anything.  Here's someone that's not a free agent, but I would not mind us taking a shot on: Dante Exum. With the Jazz trading up to get Donovan Mitchell Exum looks to be ousted as the PG of the future there. He's had his struggles but he's extremely talented and has never really had a great mentor like Kemba would be.  I'd give them Sessions (lol), Jeremy Lamb plus a couple second rounders. Would not give up any of our core: Batum, MKG, Cody, Kemba, Dwight, etc. Wonder if they would bite on that? It's crazy that second rounders really do become valuable. If we had an extra second we could have had Mason + Bacon likely.  Part of me wonders whether or not we will try to have Monk run some backup PG. That would be a mistake IMO. He needs to be running off screens all day.
    • I wrote to both Tillis and Burr - the thing that pisses me off the most about this is that the savings that this bill creates in the budget are not used for deficit reduction - they are nothing but a hand out to the wealthiest among us and corporations in the guise of creating a more robust economy.  These heartless lying  bastards make me sick.
