O line

O line 


This has to be the worst in the NFL! When are they going to get a line coach that can get these Gus to play. We can not run block at all and this has been going on for years now.

It's gonna get worse unless there's a coaching change. It seems Grimm just isn't cutting it.

Re: O line 


After thursday's performance I'm convinced the O-Line is going to cost us a winning season. Kolb isn't the problem nor the run game........Beanie, Williams, or otherwise. If we end up in the cellar, it will be because of the O-line if nothing get's done about it.

Can't pass block either. However, we are 4-1 at this point. Keep the faith bandit.

RE: O line 


Personally I think it's just the tackles, which still equates to the entire o-line in the whole scheme of things. The interior linemen are good enough to get the job done but the tackles are what's killing everything. I think Whiz has no choice but to move to a quicker passing game, three step drops, quick screens, etc. Having no running game also throws a wrench into all of this because at this point there is no balance to keep opposing defenses honest.

Re: O line 


When teams have you changing your offense to cover up your o-line, they will eat you alive. No time to pass or run the ball and you have 11 defensive guys playing at the line of scrimmage. Good luck with that short passing game. The thing I"m hoping for, is steady improvement. Even if it is small. Maybe the playing time will get these young players better, sooner. The draft has to find us a couple of lineman!

Quoted for truth.  It's the old silk purse/sow's ear problem.  Grimm is a HOF lineman.. so I'm pretty sure he has plenty of knowledge to convey.  The logical conclusion is that the guys we have just can't get the job done.  Blaming Grimm is just scape-goating.

Disagree great players often don't = great coaches.

As I said on an earlier thread, this line has been handpicked by this coaching staff as evidenced by the long relatively big money deals they signed. banghead

Unless you buy the theory that Bidwill and/or Graves is pulling an Al Davis or Jerry Jones and making the coaches start people they don't want to.  I am in the Whiz and his best friend Grimm have a lot of clout in roster decisions perhaps the final say camp.

If you're right then they both need to be fired.
