Default As poorly as the starting O-Line has played...

They gave up two sacks to Minnesota's three. If I recall correctly, didn't Minnesota have a pretty solid O-Line?

So does Minnesota's O-Line suck badly? Or is the Defense (On a good day) that good?

I'd give more credit to your defense in this case. There was one play (in particular) where I saw your LOLB run over the RT on a pass play to get a sack. That was just sick. There was consistent pressure from every spot...and that was without Troy.

Yeah, that was Woodley in the first half. I think he caught the OT a bit off balance, but if he didnt......it was just nasty.

That was one of the plays that had Sportscenter written all over it. He absolutely exploded into him and I nearly leaped out of my seat seeing it. I may not like your team, but that was some damn fine football there!

The o-line was awful. They would have given up more sacks if Ben wasn't good at escaping pass rushers. He was under pressure all night and couldn't make any plays.

Thank God for Big Ben and pray he doesn't get hurt because of that damn Colon. Leftwitch looked ok but he is not the answer if something happens to Ben. He will get crushed because of that Oline because he has no mobility.

We didnt get pressure consistently, if you watched the game you would notice that the harrisons and woodley just got a great jump on the snap during the sacks.

Both of Minn. lines are highly ranked. Their defense is one of the top five in the league.
