After saturday nights debacle, I think we have to really be concerned about our offensive line. first of all, I think that it is more important that the unit plays as a unit, and that is more important than just individual talent(see Oakland raiders). Because Tomlin is alternating players from game to game, we are not seeing cohesion at all. We have to make some decisions quick and get these guys playing together. Secondly, we do not have a bonafide tackle on the roster. Marvell Smith is a right tackle forced to the left side where he is mediocre at best and sometimes awful. Max Starks has slow feet and cant handle any speed rushers and the way he got bulldozed back into the qb by a guy 80 lbs lighter makes me sick. Colon can do the job but is a guard forced to play tackle. Faneca is the man, but as is the case, mgmt would rather dole out heaps of cash for Okobi/Mahan than invest in a true lineman. Simmons seems to be playing with a vengeance but is still not the power blocker we need. In fact, after those short yardage disasters saturday, where is our muscle? I just love seeing our lineman on their asses. The middle of our line has no push at all, especially with Faneca out.
No announcement yet.
