I say Seattle was good too, and quite honestly Byron bell brought down the whole oline in buffalo, he was a one man wrecking crew. Just for the wrong team

Can Star play OLine too?

I expected our oline to do better than most expected since majority was dismissing the talent we have.

I still don't like bell.

I'd argue that inserting Wharton at RT would improve the entire right side including the guard position.

The entire OL struggled at Buffalo.

Amini has been straight up awesome so far. Great blocking, no penalties, no stupid mistakes.

He was on a roll at the end of the season before he got injured. People need to understand that he had to change position and had to adjust to a much higher level. Division to the NFL is hard, but Division 2 to NFL is tough. He had to learn to use technique instead of overpowering people.

Do I really have to be the one to say these metrics suck ass? People trying to Billy Beane football snaps without intimate knowledge of the goals of the play are really at a loss. So much subjectivity as to what constitutes a good play. Do they measure how many inches a player was pushed back on a block or something?

 

But seriously, the entire line has had it's ups and downs this year. Byron took a beating in likely every tangible category considering the small sample size and the number of sacks he gave up to Mario Williams. It happens. Bad games happen, especially against great ends.

 

How can one measure the success of a play in a vacuum like this and not realize how entirely futile it is? If you guys really think Rhodes was the 4th best safety in football last year and can't get a job anywhere you need your head examined.

 

For good and for bad alike, these stats are terrible.

Lets not get into the whole Kerry Rhodes thing. But gross Kalil and amini have been great this year so it's believable they would have them rated high

there's no way these players can be developing and improving...............

 

 

because our coaches suck,  can't coach anybody up and they never start the right player.

Our OL has been a surprise as of late

 

Interesting comment on several levels.  Here are some general observations/opinions from what little I have seen--

 

Scott has been surprisingly adequate, and that is pretty much all we have ever had at RG. 

Gettlemen said the OL would come together.  Is that finally happening?

Silatolu is great pulling and blocking in open spaces.  last week, when Shula opened the playbook, he had more opportunities.

 

I still do not like Bell at RT.  He needs help a lot--however, he was taking a better angle in pass protection than during the buffalo game.  Maybe a light came on.
