  • New pre-eminent O-line in the NFL?

    I was just thinking: now that the KC O-line has finally faded into the sunset, is there a unit that is ready to stand up and replace it?

    I have been casting about, and I can't think of one single dominant O-line in the NFL that is ready to step up and take hold of the title.

    Philly? Good, but aging in a few spots and not quite there.

    NO? Some nice pieces, but need more time to gel and might be a little bit of fools gold.

    Washington? They were very good, but the defections of Dockery and the injury to-an admittedly, already declining--Jansen keep them from it.

    Seattle? Jones is showing his age, and they have been disappointed by Spencer. You also get the feeling that they have never quite recovered from losing Hutch.

    Pitt? Uh, not quite. Just not enough top-shelf talent.

    Cinncy? Could have been, but Steinbach left and Anderson is aging.


    There doesn't seem to be a real, rock-solid unit that dominates every game. My best guesses for the future are San Diego, NYJ and.....call me crazy, but Cleveland.

    Still, in the game against Chicago, McNeill was getting beat regularly and they weren't getting good push in the run game--granted it was against Chicago--and the Jets just haven't really gotten there. I'm starting to wonder if D'Brick will ever make the leap. Cleveland has my favorite tackle prospect in recent history on their team. Steinbach playing on the interior, and hopefully a boost coming from Bentley. That is three players there who are able capable of dominating on a game by game basis, but there is a long ways for them to go.

    And then there is Tennessee. Roos anchoring the edge, and a still very good Mawae plugging the middle. Along with some nice young interior talent, is this the new emerging O-line of the future? Maybe they are already there.

    Am I missing something?

    I think it's safe to say that this is the best line out there...

    LT Flozell Adams / Doug Free
    LG Kyle Kosier / Pat McQuistan
    C Andre Gurode / Corey Proctor
    RG Leonard Davis / Joe Berger
    RT Marc Columbo / James Marten

    haha...jk... we're getting there, but not yet.

      <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
      <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

        Tennessee is up and coming with two young stud Tackles: Michael Roos and David Stewart. Stewart in particular is impressive and has drawn rave reviews from Norm Chow.

            The terms "you" and "your" are possessive. What makes you think that my team is the Titans?

                  LT: McNeil - 23
                  LG: Dielman - 26
                  C: Hardwick - 26
                  RG: Goff - 31
                  RT: Olivea- 25

                  And they're all under contract for next season. All they need is to draft a young right guard after Goff leaves and you're looking a line that's going to dominate for the next eight years.

                      The only thing is that Olivea, in my opinion, is somewhat of a weak spot. He's a solid player, but he also lets up a lot of sacks and gets beat a little more then I'd like to see.

                          I would have to go with SD but they did not have a great game last week but the Bears DL is unreal so I would still give it to SD on paper.

                            what they need to do is draft Dunlap from Auburn, put him at RT and have Olivea be a RG.... then u have 2 McNeils! its PERFCET!

                              Yeah he could be better but you can't expect five all-pro caliber players on one line. Besides, there aren't many elite right tackles in the NFL.
