I saw a lot of posts last week talking about how improved our O-line has become over the past few weeks. Any thoughts about the O-line this week )after loss to Balty)? Still improving? Personally, I think they aren't getting the job done (i.e., pass and rush blocking).

The O-Line started off terrible, but adjusted to the schemes of Baltimore's defense. Carr had time, just not the playcalling to take advantage of it. By no means did they play a good game though. I would give them a C. They were every bit as good as Baltimore's line and any slightly below average line in the NFL.

The line looked a little shaky, but they did pretty good run blocking most of the game and some of the sacks they gave up were on blitzes where they had more people rushing than we could block.

Until we can show that we can handle the blitz effectively, I think we can expect every team for the rest of the year to try to blitz us often.

Yes, and most teams have done that so far this year, especially on third downs. Every team knows to rush 7-8 guys on third downs where we might pass the ball because we don't design any short passes over the middle so the corners can stay on our receivers who are generally headed towards the sidelines on short routes.

We're so obvious, and we so obviously can't take a blitz...

Our line is 300% better than at the beginning of the year - which brings us to 50% of what it was last year.

I dunno.....right now, I think the line is about where it should be at the beginning of the year especially since they've done something about stabalizing LT, yet we're at the 3/4 mark for the entire regular
season. Lets hope we don't have the same coaching staff around next
year so it doesn't take 3 months of the season before the the line gets into
regular season form.

You're on a roll, keep it up as you are entering Yogi Berra territory. Just take it one martini at a time.
