Considering we have Joe Thomas, Eric Steinbach, Hank Fraley, Ryan Tucker, and Kevin Shaffer starting with sick depth in Rex Hadnot, Seth McKinney, and Lennie Friedman, it is clear that the Browns line is great and even better than last year with Hadnot in the fold and Joe Thomas being a year more experienced after a pro bowl rookie season. Minnesota has a killer line, but the right side of their unit isn't that great and their depth isn't that great either compared to some lines. I think New England is still the best line after how dominant they were last year even though they did get beat by the Giants' front four in the big game.
Faneca wasn't as good as normal but he is still very good. I think Sean Mahan's terrible play really hurt Faneca last year. He's had the benefit of playing with good centers for most of his career.
So are you saying that great center play in the past has helped hide some of Fanecas bad play? I just think he wasnt as motivated this season compared to others. he clearly didnt want to be there. At the same time it was a huge contract year for him so you know he gave it his all for the money ball.
