Re: LZ: The offense is very much broken and Kubiak canít rely on Ďthe systemí he has
32 teams in this league and most of them have less than perfect OL play. Is there something wrong with the Texans line? Of course. Newton and "Rookie-of-the-Week" have been a mess and Wade Smith is a fraud this year but Myers and Brown deserve every accolade they get by and large. Even the fraud is good enough most of the time.
The OL has problems but it's not like every QB needs the Great Wall of China in front of him to be effective. There are ways a QB can help an offensive line that's struggling. He can move (Schaub can't) and he can burn the pass rush when they blitz (Schaub isn't making anyone pay this year for blitzing).
None of that is happening for us. Roethlisberger could play well behind our line. Hell he'd probably make them look brilliant. Schaub can't do it. We need to either maintain a starting OL that's damn near perfect or find a guy who can be effective behind an average line.
Fitz makes bad decisions. That's not going to change.
