offensive line- Our o-line is finesse. Thats the way they were built. There are advantages to having a system and being able to put players that are not elite in that system. The biggest advantage is being able to save first round draft picks for other positions. We only have one first round pick in the bunch and most would say he is not a typical lt tackle. There is a problem with this as well. There are a few defensive fronts that are so much more talented than we are that they just blow up our o-line. You can't use your scheme when your being overpowered and out quicked. defensive line- Our d-line is composed of the type of talent that I would like our o-line to be made of. Lot's of first rounders. The problem with them is they are one dimensional. Our ends or strong and can overpower weaker or even average strength o-lineman. when they go up against big strong tackle's they seem to have problems. I think our interior line(supposed to be quick) has not developed into what the coaches wanted. They just get taken out by all but the weakest/slowest o-lineman. The problems with or o-line and d-line hinder what is the strengths of our team. Our skilled players on offense and our linebackers. Without the help up front these guys can't "do their thing". Now most teams are not good enough up front on defense or strong enough with their offensive line to exploit our weaknesses. There are a couple of average teams the match up well and most of the elite teams have what it takes to really create some match up problems. We only have two more games against teams that should be able to really give our line's trouble(Balt and NY). we should have a chance to win all the rest of our games but i think we might see more of what we saw against Dallas and the Giants against those two teams. Tenn is another team that should really give us problems but maybe being in our division and playing them twice a year helps keep us close against them. I'm not even close to being an expert but I watch a lot of football and I wanted to throw this our there and see if you guys agree.
