Re: Worried about the Oline.

Yeah I understand but with all those subs in the latter part of the 4th quarter we were moving the ball ... That is a good thing!!!!

Tom and Clapp aren't on the same level as the regular starters, but all things considered they didn't fare too badly.

Win next week and the OL will be back and hopefully Ted Ginn Jr will be 100% for the playoffs.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

Concerned, sure, but there is a difference between a backup lineman thrown into the fire mid-game because of another player's injury, and a backup lineman given a week of prep time, coaching, game planning, and confidence from running with the 1's. Dan Roushar, Pete Carmichael, Payton and Drew will have a week to figure it out and come up with a game plan for the future, until some of these key players come back. The defense will have to hold it down for a while to keep us in games, but they have been really stepping up for a few games now. Not as worried as I COULD be.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

Looks like Unger didn’t come back in due to concussion protocol.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

I thought our O-Line looked better when we went Peat at LT and Clapp at LG. We actually started establishing a run game.

Re: Worried about the Oline.

No secret I don't like Armstead's softness, "un"availability, nor the excuses Payton & local media make for him; we should've been consistent and traded his arse two seasons ago when trying toughen this team...

Don't care how may A+ grades Mr. Glass gets, since the Big Mo his over/under per season has been 8 regular season games; Armstead is our most expensive player on a Games Played basis - more than Drew...

And while we were overpaying for Warford - spending that kind of money on a guard (which I still agree with) spend the extra mil Sean on Zeitler, after all it's another man's money and you're a democrat...

While I appreciate the PFF model and what they're trying to do, their system of subjective grading is flawed because it doesn't account for quality of opposition, health of players, and inclination of favoritism...

Mention this because Unger is undervalued; truly thought we were done when Max went down cause after Brees, Unger is our MVP on offense; if Unger's not available for Pittsburgh, Wow, yeah, he's that important...

Trading two for one picks is catching up to us because after Clapp, we have no draft picks being developed for depth on an aging offensive line...
