Totally agree. I've said it before: talent really isn't the problem with this o-line. They seem to have communication gaps which are filled by Suggs, Freeney and (insert additional defender names here).

I'm not a huge Jon Scott fan, but he isn't as bad as he's looked. Gilbert has done a pretty good job as a rookie, with a few of his sacks really being Ben's fault ... Gilbert would take his man wide and Ben would run from the pocket right into the defender. I was hoping the first 3 games would shake out some of these problems, but they persist, most likely because of the constant changes on the line (due to injuries).
