I think Caldwell got hurt around week 4 or 5. Ben Jones started playing & I think he did fine...... I think he won that position. A few weeks later, we lost Newton for a couple of games. Three I think. I believe it was the Detroit, Jacksonville, New England games.
I thought getting Newton back would set us right again, but so far it doesn't look like it. Maybe because he's trying to get Brooks in the game. Which, you'd think if he wanted Brooks at RG, he'd stick him in there & go with it, but he's still swapping Brooks & Jones, which I would think would slow their development.
We lost the game, I know it's hard to see any kind of improvements when we lose. But if it weren't for the two Ints, I think our OL took a good step forward.
