Rod Johnson better than Tytus Howard for starters.
I disagree. Johnson doesn't have Howard's strength. Or maybe you're talking more about recently, as I think he hasn't played all that well since he returned from his injury. In which case, Johnson could be a better option. I can see that. Hopefully that is the case and Howard just focuses on getting better for next season.

Johnson got benched for Clark.

One of the games Tunsil was out we started Clark with less than a week of practice. Rod Johnson came in the 2nd series with an opportunity to earn the job... been on the team since last year.

Clark looked better to me.

& RJohnson looks more suited as a LT. Doesn't have the lower anchor to push defenses off the ball to be a RT.

I agree with you that Johnson doesn't look like a traditional RT. For the sake of the rest of the season, though, I hope he's better at it than I think.

Still a bit concerned with the run blocking. Also didn't like on a couple of plays, there was a free rusher to DW4.

But overall, happy with their performance last night.
I worry that the O-line is still the weak point of this team.
....especially with Von Miller & co. coming to town

At the beginning of the game they were some weird plays by Tunsil in particular. He wasn’t getting beaten, it looked like he let a guy go free by design. I remember one play in particular where he helped the G and the guy in front of him had almost a free run at the QB. I’m guessing that’s part of those sweet protection schemes Develin runs. Maybe Martin was supposed to swing out and block the guy directly in front of Tunsil - the defense would never see that coming

I agree .... they don't often look as cohesive as I thought they would by now .... and I may be too critical, but I expected far more from Tunsil, in many ways, especially considering the price we paid !

I believe injuries put a damper into their cohesiveness. We really haven't had our starting unit out there since week 4 or 5.
