Rank our offensive line?

I have a rank for you, an NFL rank. 32nd. Guess where that figure came from?

But seriously, if we are serious about running the ball more, this is the line to do it. But that means if we run the ball more, cut the three and outs, cut back on having AB need to pass and making most of our decisions, and actually give our defense a chance to rest and be off the field, they could be better? So improving the O-line and subsequently our running game and overall the offense may have a positive impact on the D. Imagine that.

And we had the best O-line in our division last year as terrible as it was, so this is no surprise. Without Vick, Atlanta\'s o-line, as proven by the game they sat him for us, is crap. Tampa\'s line is terrible, and the Panthers was terrible BEFORE injury made it worse. The good thing about our divison is Carolina seems to be the only ones who have actively worked on improving the line.

Here is a rank for you Whodi. 29th. Want to know where that came from? That is the rank of our rushing game. That isn\'t much better than 32nd.

I understand your frustration, believe me. I also wanted DJ. However, improving our OL and making room for Duece and our 29TH RANKED rushing attack is also important.

Aren\'t you one of the big \"keep the D off the field\" guys? I don\'t see how this can upset you that much?

LT-Gandy, C plus/minus a grade. He\'s aging but how fast. Does he have another decent year left? Who Knows.

LG-Holland, C plus. Still learning and now gets moved back to his natural LG. Probably deserves better than C plus but hasn\'t earned it yet.

C-Bentley A. May be an A-plus if his transition to center is complete.

RG-Mayberry, A-minus. Was an A-plus player who is aging but still appears to be the best OG we\'ve had since Bentley changed positions

RT-Brown, B-minus. He has potential to immediately upgrade to a A but he is a rookie. There is a learning curve even for the best of them.

Depth-B, after last year it appears our O-line may have been the most over-rated unit on the team. But now if the reports about sStinch are correct it does appear our depth is good, not great

Overall grade- B-plus
But it has the potential to increase if Brown catches on quick, but also has the potential to plummet if Gandy\'s decline accellerates.

Just my humble opinion.

My bad Whodi. I don\'t know how I misread that so badly.

Apologies, of course.
