Question Improvement of offensive live

What are everyone's thoughts on how improved the o-line will be this season?Personally,I think they have been improving each year in their abilities as a unit and hopefully they shall continue to be even better this year.Also,is our o-line coach pretty good out of curiosity?

They are on a nice curve. Dom Davis ran for 1000 yards in 10 games and Carr was only sacked 15 times (not including Banks and Ragone). Adding Bruenner and Wade should allow us to help Pitts since we have always had journeymen at RT so far. Joppru should be a tough blocker too if he can come in healthy. I look for big things. The only spot that is unsettled is LG, and that spot is up in the air imo because of our new blocking scheme.

Also, we are moving to more zone blocking (like the Broncos) this year so look for us to struggle early, but gel towards the mid point in the season. We should have a fine unit in place for our serious playoff run of 2005.

The line should be pretty good. Wade is a upgrade over Randall. An intresting battle to watch in mini camp is whether Milford Brown can get back his starting LG spot that Todd Washington took when Brown got injured. The other spots on the line are locks. Although I wonder what Seth Wand has done...

I don't think Washington has a shot to start with our new zone blocking scheme. He has lead feet. This is Weary's shot to start if he has matured. This slot ought to be between Weary and Brown. I'm thinking Washington will have a tough time making the team.

I forgot about Weary. He is very athletic but raw. He could play center in like 2 seasons when McKinney's contract is up and if McKinney asks for too much.

Im gonna be watching Wand like a hawk. He is possibly our LT of the future.. if he comes around, id watch for him to take over as starting LT by mid season.. if he isnt quite ready.. id look for it next season. Pitts is gonna make a great LG if Wand comes around.
