    He deserves his own thread. He has sucked all day. The other linemen are doing their part to make the unit look bad, but Myers has gone above and beyond the call. Just put Caldwell in. He'll make some mental mistakes, but he won't get tossed aside by Jenkins like a rag doll.

    Someone please make a mistake of Jenkins karate chopping Chris Meyers onto the ground and send it to Gibbs/Kubiak/Shannahan/McNair. That play looked like a fan stood in at center for Myers

    I agree. I couldn't believe how Myers got thrown around like a rag-doll like that.

    So no, it's not all on Schaub.

    I was filled with dread today before the game began. I hate it when they prove out my worst fears.

    Myers got absolutely destroyed out there today. I recall at least 5 plays where he was pushed into the backfield before anything could develop. Probably happened more but I got so frustrated I had to retreat to my laptop and check out my fantasy scores.

    Chris Meyers is just a by-product of this outdated bullshit ZBS.

    He was too small last year and he's too small again this year.

    But I think I might have already mentioned that over here.

    He was destroyed several times before that play. He sucks. Mr. Myers, if you're still trolling, I'm sorry. I'm sure he's a fine person and an upstanding young man ... but your son sucks at playing Center in the NFL.

    Myers should be done here. He was a liability last season and nothing has changed.

    Add a center to the list of players we need.

    For the record I don't think it will make much difference though. The rest of the line are a bunch of softies who get pitched around like rag dolls. We're the first team in his entire coaching career that Alex Gibbs couldn't turn into a running powerhouse. Nice distinction to have isn't it.

    Breisal (sp?) didnt exactly dominate either. He wiffed several times too. Im starting to think this ZB system is good against weaker teams but isnt capable of taking us where we really want to go. We just get ***** sllapped against the top defenses. Even when we do move the ball we cant score.

    I don't have the energy for the discussion right now, but I'm going to bring this up later when we're discussing talent vs. coaching. Because I'm completely flummoxed.

    As I said in the first post, the rest of the line did their part to make the unit look bad. It's just that Myers went above and beyond. He's the poster child.

    If this thread is suggesting some set Myers on fire...well...I think Jenkins already did.

    was funny seeing Schaub wear a 300 lb NYJ lineman around his neck the whole game, yet still a "Bench Schaub" thread pops up.

    next season, mandatory football IQ tests for everyone before posting priviliges are given?

    He did it to Pitts at least once too. Just swung his armed and knocked him away. I have to give the guy credit - he's got a lot of strength.

    Is anyone really surprised by Myers' performance? I mean we drafted a Center in the third round because we did not like his play last year. If we were so high on Myers we would not spend a third rounder on a center, we could have gone in a different direction. Myers is a nice guy, but he is not a center. I have long maintained he is a Depth Guard not a starting center. Look for Caldwell to get some more snaps in practice.
