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.

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.  

 

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.

OLine is a major issue, but the other major issue is the play calling.  I'm very concerned about Shula's play calling so far...too predictable.

What exactly didn't you like about the playcalling?

Dude, it's the preseason.  We've always kept things very vanilla in the preseason under Rivera and never really shown our hand.

I'm starting to get the Ron Rivera coaching progression

Vet gets cut: "we wanna see what the young guys can do"

Young guys play like poo in preseason: "hey it's only preseason"

Young guys continue to play like poo way into the regular season: "it's a process..."

Of course we keep it vanilla, but that doesn't mean we run a HB dive for every running play...including the plays for Barner.  We were much more productive on offense the previous 2 years.

 

2nd and 1 halfback dive...no gain

3rd and 1 halfback dive....loss of 2

 

We'll see what happens in the regular season.

Sound like a blocking issue

You play to your strengths.  Run some bootlegs.

Grab a OL from FA, bring in an extra tight-end - more 2 TE formations, getting Jon and Tolbert back? Idk but this will be painful to watch all year. Our defense ballin

I believe the shockey olsen combo contributed to a lot of cams rookie success. Another te would be a big payoff.

Cam will lead the team again in rushing. With our line, it's going to suck for our RB's. All that money invested, and we don't even have the personnel to use them right.
