Yes I am. I know its only pre-season, but our O-line looked to have regressed last season and it looks exactly the same so far after 2 pre-season games.

I'm not gonna panic because we won 11 freaking games with this "regressed" O-line last year so even when they struggle they're probably still above average.

I like what I saw with Strief. He played better than I thought he would.

The optimist in me says Kreutz is still trying to get in sync with the rest of the line.

Charles Brown is built like a DE, not a LT and definitely not like a RT. He was as pathetic as I've seen a O-lineman look in years.

I haven't pressed the panic buuton yet, but I've damn sure located in on my dashboard.

I dunno. The D-line looked great one game, and bad the next. The O-line looked bad in both games.

Those zone blocking teams take time to gameplan against, which I'm sure we didn't do.

One thing to remember also we struggle against the 3-4...and Houston is way better this year on D...i saw it coming with Watt...the dude is an animal.

Very worried about the O-Line....Are there any free agents we might want to take a look at?

I'm pretty sure Loomis is reviewing his list in front of him as we speak.
