Default Our O-line is awesome

For years we have been saying or o-line sucks but i really like what Kugler has done.

Even with the shifting parts and injuries, he has done an excellent job.

Virtually all sacks these days are the fault of Ben or a receiver that forgot to do hot route.

Bravo O-line.

Ben should have read that Blitz at the line and adapted. Seriously. Even if you give that sack to the O-line, it is the only one of 3 thus far that belongs to them.

Ben has gotten a lot better at check downs. He still needs a little more work (and he is still my favorite player).

Coach Z...OMG...he sucked. I almost feel we were nicer because he was an older guy. A younger guy would have been fired sooner. Oh yeah...I guess the Superbowl victory bought him time. Few coaches get fired after a superbowl.

Amazing how Kugler has been able to adapt with different men.

I hope Ben continues to get rid of the ball. I remember I had calculated that if Ben would have gotten rid of the ball one more time per game he would have had 29 sacks instead of 45...huge difference. He has to accept his part.

Now...they need to stop holding...lol

But even if it was not a hold, it was a bad pass by Ben. Wallace was open.

You are deluded.

Ben had less than 3 seconds on that last sack. This o line is a turnstyle...AGAIN....

We are playing with three backup linemen. And I love how you don't mention when Ben has had a ton of time to complete the 19 passes he has. They aren't great, but they aren't as bad as you are saying.

Not sure I agree with this - this line is FAAAAAR from "awesome!" I do agree that we have done okay given all the injuries, but Kemo is not an injury replacement & he was flat-out AWFUL today.

I see a lot of missed assignments and holds. Yes, legitimate holds - enough of them.

I still think it's beacuse all of them starters down are not that good...so there is not much difference. Pouncy will be good.
