Oher Struggling Early in Camp

Recommended Posts

we've asked that question in every 'DG hates LT' thread for the last 6 months, yet everyone seems to always dodge it, like you just did.

I usually avoid the mindless threads you're mentioning. I made an observation that the front office is not good at evaluating OT in the draft. For whatever reason that side of the line they think they can go patchwork on. If they had signed someone else and the guy was struggling wouldn't we have the same questions? I guess they are thinking Oher surely has to be better than Bell.

Ah, yes...reminds me of last year when smart asses would say everyone is being stupid to panic and we would be fine with Bell and Chandler. I for one, think once again, it is very stupid for the team to ignore this position as they continue to do. And before the 'well, who was better, who could've come in/draft blah blah', how many years do you go with that story? Surley 4 years have not gone by with a better option. Oher is NOT the answer and neither is Martin and both are going to look horrible this season. Watch. In the rare event Oher turns out to be serviceable or slightly better than Bell, the worst LT in the league, we can consider ourselves luck.

At this point in baffles me we spend years trying to figure out a solution to the most important position on the offense not being QB.

I could make the exact OPPOSITE argument based on the quality of Tackles that have come out since Gettleman has been our GM. He's avoided all of them (when he's actually had the opportunity to draft them, not when taken before he could).

He's doing fine.

Drafting Williams from OU may be the litmus test to see if they can find OT's in the draft. OU is tied fir most OT's drafted in the last 15 yrs. Each of the 5 have become starters with Williams and another OU rookie this year waiting to see. That's a safe pool to choose from. Hope the trend continues.

It's not a good sign but we really have no one else. Bell was terrible so we are taking our chances with Oher.  He honestly can't be worse than bell. I just don't think he is much better. Guess we will see how much our coaching staff can get out of him.

Wait, not to call Jeremy out or anything, but didn't Voth say that despite the rocky start Oher adjusted? Or are we purposely ignoring that tweet just to bitch and complain today?

 

 

Just sayin'.

This.........

Time somehow brings out both the good and bad, lets just hope there is much more good....

Oher didn't adjust. The Panthers started running plays on offense that got the ball out of Cam's hand quickly. 

Maybe Oher improves in camp, but as of now he has had a bad start.

    • While I agree with the basis of your assessments about different angles and overloads not being new, I would say that the personal they are using and the versatility they are displaying is new. They are hiding the play extremely well and can morph from there fronts into almost anything. They are able to read the offense and and call their exact plays from the field. They are making it very hard for the QBs to make pre snap adjustments. The OLs don't know who there assignments should be and the QB doesn't know if it's a run D or a pass D because it's both. When we see multiple defenders running past the OL untouched it means that the OL doesn't know what's coming. That's because they haven't see it before. The Saints OL is very experienced and considered to be top notch and they often looked lost out there. I think it's also giving the RBs problems as they can't read which hole to hit and they are not hitting lanes very hard so far and are therefore getting stuffed even by DBs. Even strong RBs can get flattened if they are attacking flat footed which is what I've seen these last 2 games. 
    • Leno was a FA and went for 5 mill on a prove it deal. Brown is going for double (totally worth that number) and we also would have to give something up for him.  Only thing I would say with Leno, Leno and Erving inside are better than Erving with elf inside. Elf was done in Minny, cooked in NYC and dead here. Not saying Leno is some savior or anything close. Now if we could find a LG well that be nice too. Kinda pissed we didn't ask for a friendly deal with the Bills when they moved on so early from Wyatt Teller but that's long gone now.   Pretty much anyone that's not big bucks will be a stopgap though, rather pay a penny not the pound that Brown was going to cost. 
    • That might be tough with their O line but I would love to see it. I don't like Dallas at all.
