The offensive line that is UNIVERSALLY acknowledged by observers everywhere as one of the worst in the league, and even our own coach has expressed his concern. You rank them 3rd BEST in pass protection?

For the love of all that is good, can we please stop paying any attention to what these trolls are saying?
well we only pay attention when it is promising. If this was about how much our oline blew in preseason and how drew was going to get killed and someone posted it, people would disqualify it by where it came from, but because it is sunshine and rainbows....

I hope Jahri solves the grotesque display of our oline in preseason, really do. Our oline is the most glaring weakness we have. If we can do better there we could make the playoffs.

point and case to my other post was the article by NOLA about week1 predictions. Guy predicted us to get our asses handed to us and it was widely dismissed... go figure

They aren't the only ones. It definitely has not been labeled anywhere close to universally as anywhere close to the worst in the league. I listen to football radio all day long and hear from all kinds of experts all day long and I don't get that impression at all.
What you're hearing now is people giving their expectations for this year. A lot of people are giving, in my opinion, unsubstantiated claims of improvement.

But this grade by PFF is based off of last year. And anywhere you looked or listened people were talking about how they were going to get Drew killed. He was constantly on the run.

And by the way, I don't think the offense will struggle, per se. It's just not going to be anything like it could be, and used to be UNLESS the line improves.

Has it been better? Hell yeah. But to say it is the worst in the NFL when you have not seen it take one snap in an actual game is shortsighted. Do this. Wait until after this weekend and compare their performance against every other line in the league and then you can make an educated evaluation based upon one game. Can you do that?

Oh, and what you are giving now are unsubstantiated claims, as well. Wait until the real product takes the field in a real game against a real defense.

I agree with you burningmetal PFF is garbage. I don't get why people put any stock into that crap. These are the same people who told everyone Corey white was a very good corner.

Everything they say is garbage, especially if it doesn't support your opinion.

I'll tell you what's shortsighted, and that is your interpretation of my post.

Did I say THE worst? No, I said it was AMONG the worst LAST YEAR. This is an article about a grade given to last year's performance by the line.

Do I think it's still bad? Yes. I sure do. There is exactly one different starter from last year, and he is a second year player who has struggled. I haven't proclaimed it the worst line this year. I am always watching for improvement. But I reserve the right to have a certain expectation. But that's all beside the point. This was a reaction to a grade given from last year. I have consistently pointed out the fallacies of their grades over the years.

So maybe you should back off. Can YOU do that?

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Do the same thing that I'm asking of burningmetal, shrimp. Wait to judge the offensive line until they have actual played together as a unit in a real game.

If the line was so great why are they bringing in people at the last minute to try to fix it.this line is the The exact same line as you had last year and everybody was *****ing about how bad they were so what makes you think there could be any better this year
