Caldwell is more talented but Brisiel is meaner and willing to get in there and fight and scrap more. Brisiel is better at getting the job done.

I'm thinking a little bit of both. Most of last season, they shared the spot, this year they came with Brisiel all the way.

I don't think "our" stretch system is completely installed. This year we've been pulling Wade a lot more & running what looks like power O. We hardly run any middle zone runs, & I saw one play last week where it looked like Myers was pulling..... either the play didn't work very well, or Myers got blown up pretty bad on that one.

So, if I'm right & they went with Brisiel over Caldwell because Brisiel was picking up the new stuff better... Brisiel has beat out Caldwell & that's not such a good thing.

Did anyone watch Caldwell much? I saw him one play and he seemed to be struggling against what appeared to be a big old DT.

Caldwell looked ok, a little rusty, but I saw a lot of pulls and advancing to the second level which we didn't do much of with Brisiel, which means Winston & Myers are also having to do some things they haven't had to do before.

I think they'll get better over the next couple of games. Because that's what they do.

I guess the fact that people aren't noticing Caldwell is a good thing right?

Isn't Oline one of those positions where not noticing them is a good thing?

I'm still hoping Caldwell steps it up to the next level and wins one of those interior line spots next year. I was REALLY high on him.
