Default O-Line Just KILLIN Us

Very little rushing, no pass blocking, Ben sacked more today than the JETS had all year. I believe this team can go far in the playoffs,BUT, we are going to have to do a better job of Pass protection. Play calling affects these situations also, We cannot run 1st 2 downs and put Ben in obvious passing downs. If the Jets were as bad on defense as we were lead to believe then this was a very poor showing indeed. Defensively we were solid except for some breakdowns in coverage and some poor tackling at the line. Lets hope this wakes everybody up for the next game and then the next and quit looking ahead to you-know-who.

I really can't blame the play calling. If you can't execute because of your O'line you are dead in the water.

Same old in each of our losses. We had the best chance in this one though.

I agree the o-line is terrible. I figured they just needed time to jell but this game proves it, there are major changes that need to be made. There were 7 sacks against the Steelers. There is no excuse for this. They should consider starting Simmons at center and Kemoeatu should start at RG. Mahan looked good in training camp and preseason, what the hell happened? Colon is terrible, he is even worse than Starks. I hope he gets cut soon. Colon is easily the worst player on this o-line. Maybe try him out at guard and see how he does, he sucks at RT. Simmons is OK, but not great, and Faneca will be gone. He was terrible tonight and is showing his age. Marvel Smith is pretty good, Marvel and Simmons have been alright this season, although they are not elite. So we will need to draft at least 2 quality linemen one to replace Faneca, and a RT that can actually protect Ben. Ben has been sacked 30 times this year. There has not been one game where we haven't allowed a sack. I can go as far to say we probably have the worst o-line in the league.

O-line is by far the weakest link on this team. Even weaker than the special teams. We will not go very far in the playoffs with this kind of o-line play.

Is Joey Porter licking his chops for next week's game or what? Considering the Jets were averaging ~1 sack/game this year and got 7 against us, Porter ought to be able to finally get some sacks.

I also agree the O line was terrible today. BUT...please take into consideration the type of plays called in. I noticed there were no short yardage quick passes in the game today as in weeks pass. I was clueless as to why none were used today to beat the rush the Jets put on us today. These short yardage plays, slants, etc are what beats the rush. At any rate complaining does not eliminate to hard turth....The Jets served us our ass on a silver platter today. I pray we can only use this game as fuel and a hard learned memory to build on in the future,

our running backs have been hit behind the line a total of 33 times for minus 81 yds.
ben has been sacked 30 times for minus 221 yds
thats a total of 63 negative yardage plays for minus 302 yds.
thats equivelent to an entire freakin game of plays and yardage !!!
what burns my ass , is last year the line was bad,and the only thing the F.O. did was pick up a mediocre FA , and draft a late rd lineman and cut him.
