I say let them play and tinker with the oline until they get it right. It can't get any worse. The offense did not have a bad game considering the weather and a fairly decent bear defense. I don't think this rotation hurt us this game. Now if it continues, then, teams will see the trend and it may not be effective down the road. Bottom line is, if Wand cannot improve his pass blocking, he needs to stay on the sideline. He does not appear to be very fast and this position is critical for us to get to the next level.
I am not trying to start an argument here, and I agree we need to fix this O line before next season. But you can't tip off the opposing defense as to what type of play you are going to run. IMO I do not think Wand is horrible at LT, but he's not the best either. Freeney owned him 2 weekends ago but like HJam said, Ogden couldn't do much either against Freeney. I might be wrong, but the Colts game is the only game I can remember where Wand got dominated for most of the game. I think our #1 concern at this point is our O line. I don't know if our defense was that good or the Bears offense was that bad, but honestly I think it was a little of both. Our defense did snatch 4 turnovers and our offense did not commit 1 turnover the entire game. IMO our offense holding onto the ball the entire game was pretty damn impressive considering the weather. I might be wrong about the offense not turning the ball over though, I am going off of memory, not stats. Sorry, didn't mean to ramble on here...
