Evaluation of our Offensive Line
 
1 Attachment(s)
From Football Outsiders. Always interesting and food for the intellectually starved fan.

Well, the bar has officially been raised here at Word of Muth. New Orleansí offensive line performance on Monday night was the best game Iíve seen any of the units Iíve covered play since I started this column. The Giants defensive line came in with a very good (and earned) reputation, but from the kickoff to the final whistle, New Orleans owned the game between the trenches.

We have definitelt beat the O-line up about its play this year. If it hasn't been said on the boards let me be the first, Great Job Guys. Their play against the Giants was great, Drew had time most of the night against a Giant D-line that is well respected. Saw another article that relates.

I think they have done a great job. Since Strief and DLP got in the mix the O-line has been really good. I hope they keep it up.

more specifically.....since our line has had some time to play together instead of switching guys in and out every week they have played very well

continuity is a word that gets tossed around when people talk about the offensive line and ppl take it with a grain of salt......people use that word all the time but dont really care to accept the meaning of it

you HAVE to give a line time to gel together

Agreed 100%. Its probably the one unit that truly does have to think and act as one.

Its a perfect example of the total being greater than the sum of all its individual parts, or something like that.

The worst O-line in the NFL would probably still outperform 5 pro-bowl O-linemen from different teams with no time to gel.

I agree to. Strief has played very well and he will get better.
