Default I hope this Oline gets in gear..

..if not I see the Titans or Ravens going to the Superbowl. They have an Oline that actually protects their QB and opens lanes up for the RB. And when was the last time Woodley got a sack?

The Oline is what they are and we shouldnt elevate our expecations. Its not like they all of a sudden are gonna just "get it" in two weeks time. Arians job is to be creative with playcalling..........not become predictable, shorten the receiver routes and use the defense's blitz aggression against them. Ever notice how we have yet to see a successful screen pass to Wilie Parker the last two years ? Ever realize how shtty the screen pass attempts have been ? And these guys are paid enormous sums of loot and thats the most pathetic looking display of an execution ive ever seen.

Arians needs to draw some new schemes up because something tells me DCoordinators around the league are homing in on our tendencies. They know that 3rd-and-anything equals Ben in the shotgun and 50% of those scenarios involve an empty backfield.

The O Line is bad but I have yet to see them fumble the ball or throw an INT. You hit the nail on the head when you said limit the turnovers. This is the only issue to us winning the SB. With no turnovers we will cruise through.

if u look at our losses this year....it was because of turnovers.

ben had costly turnovers in the giants, colts, and Tennessee games

the only game i feel that we LOST was the Eagles game...

we will have a GREAT shot to win the SB this year if we limit the turnovers...
