    This is just pitiful.

    This performance put on by the O-Line is reminiscent of the days of HWWNBM.

    I can't believe there were people that actually believed we had the best O-Line in the league. Yes, we are a good run blocking O-Line, but we are TERRIBLE in pass protection.

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice overreaction! But during that stretch when Schaub was getting sacked repeatedly we didn't give our O-line any help. The Dolphins were sending 6,7, and 8 guys over and over again and we countered by running play actions or keeping it to only 5 guys blocking. It was obvious from the start Winston needed help against Wake but he was left alone on an island and got pwned. The line and the rest of the offense stepped up when they needed to

    The offensive line SUCKED TODAY. And Tate was still able to get over 100.

    It doesnt SUCK.

    Our offensive line was definitely not good today...there was a stretch where all we seemed to do was just drop back and allow them to come. Would have liked to see more draw/screen plays then

    Couldn't agree with you more. Some of those issues with pressure was Schaub doing an awful job of moving around in the pocket, not running per se but just sliding out of pressure. Schaub way too often panicks and doesn't help his line out when pressured.

    I'm not saying it's all on him but much of it was. Winston had his hands full today, I have to admit.

    The OL was definitely bad today. The Dolphins were controlling both sides of the line leading up to those missed FG's. Even at 16-3, we didn't have a comfortable lead. We had bad field position pretty much all the 3rd quarter & the Dolphins looked like the better team. Luckily Manning baled us out on that kickoff return, leading to Andre's touchdown. But we got the win. Good teams find a way to win those games.

    I was wondering where that moving pocket was that worked so well against the Colts week 1

    How does Duane Brown completely and UTTERLY blow the assignment against Jason Taylor that almost got Schaub killed?

    I mean, our LG had his own man line up across from him, Taylor is just a tad bit outside of Duane Brown and we had a RB whose assignment was to flare out for a pass route at the snap....and Duane Brown blocks NOBODY. And then puts his hands out and begs for what? Understanding? Help?

    IT WAS YOUR PLAY, DUANE! YOURS!

    That was the single-most frustrating play of the day for me. And. "No," Chris Myers did not have a good day as well (contrary to what some are saying). He was getting tossed aside quite a bit, and I think both of our Guards suffered for it, too, having to be in good enough position to clean up Myers' mess.

    The offensive line's pass pro today was more like pass amateur. They haven't looked that bad in pass pro in a long, long time, IMO.

    The Fins have a good defense, so I'm not surprised by the OL struggling. What worries me is we gave Gregg Williams a buttload of film to use against the Texans. The N.O. game is gonna be brutal.

    It was ugly out there today.

    My question (and this may not be the right place) is-where was the play action that always works so well???

    I don't recall seeing Schaub moving out on that big 'ole bootleg for the pass. Was this possibly because there was not much protection? We were running enough for it to work.

    Just curious...

    Uh, they have a good defense???

    I disagree. Miami has a "bad" defense. New Orleans has a "good" defense and Ravens have a "great" defense, if we're going on the idea of Bad, Good, and Great for our scoring system for rating defenses.

    If our o-line plays against a good defense the way they played against a bad defense today, it'll be brutal (I agree with you there).

    That was a bad play and if its the same one I remember, Owen sneaks out of the backfield and actually runs into Brown crossing him up.

    I'm not entirely knowledgeable on o-line intricacies, so would someone help me out here please:

    Let's say the perfect, franshise-looking LT fell to us in the draft or FA. What would be the feasability of taking him, switching Duane to RT, and scooting Winston in to RG? Is that a legitimate possibility, or do either of their skills not translate to the position changes? I know that it's really tough for lineman to bust (at least according to the experts) because you can always move them to a different position on the line where they can be more successful. What do you guys think?
