The Lions Oline has clearly been better at pass blocking, when was the last time the Olineman blocked well enough for a 100 yd. rusher. You also are referring to the line over the past couple years, but Texans signed Todd Wade, moved a tackle (Pitts I think) back to his natural guard position, and a young tackle (Seth Wand) has looked impressive in preseason. Call it a hunch, but I don't think this Oline will give up 76 sacks this year, and they will block for a 1200+ yd runner.
Its not just a line who makes a runner a 1200 yard RB... you need a RB too... and for theTexans bringing in Todd Wade, the Lions brought in Damien Woody... Is i just me, or would any sane person rather have Woody then Wade..?
