Default Offensive Line

Looked like shit once again.. No running room, and Ben couldnt drop back..

HOWEVER!!! They looked freakin awesome the last drive in the 4th quarter and in overtime.

Nice Job OLINE

Actually, they looked real good after the first quarter in the pass.

The big sack was Ben and the Receivers.

Run game is a whole different ballgame though.

But hey, If I had the choice between a bad line throughout the game, but excellent when it is on the line.... to win it. Or excellent, and breaking down when needed to lose it. I'll take the former every time.

Props to the O-Line, i felt they did a fairly solid job pass protecting for the majority of the game, though the Titans didn't blitz often at the end of the game, the O-Line gave Ben all day too work.

It's even more BS cause there should have been 2 or 3 holdings called for us when Harrison was held. Looks like it's gonna be another long season of that crap.

2 of the sacks were on Ben. I give the OL hell of credit for their play and a hell of a good game after the first half. Ben had ample time on that last drive and they helped them win the game. Good job OL!

Is it really the O-Line though? They called so many runs right up the gut but very little outside off the tackles. We have smaller faster backs we should be stretching the field to the sides more.

When we RUN, RUN, PASS and leave Ben in 3rd and long time after time how many times can the O-Line be held accountable? That and the fact that Ben in the first half was hardly even looking to check down. Third and fourth quarter Ben started hitting his check downs more and we started to convert.

That was a pretty bad call. I usually never blame the refs... but there were 2 HORRIBLE calls tonight. That was one of them.
