Have you read the Blindside Alan?No QB or coaching staff on Earth could save the Bears, Jags, Steelers, or Jets from their horrendous offensive lines.
Why so many people continue to ignore the importance of that unit is beyond me. I don't care what anyone says, it is the most important unit in the sport. Even Peak Brady wouldn't paper over those cracks.
Tim Spiers, eat your heart out.Why current rookie QBs are struggling, and latest power rankings:
Don't really agree with this where QB's are concerned. It's not always the top guy though. If you look at last year Herbert is going to be a Top 5 QB and went after Burrow and Tua. Really difficult to rate QB's in year 1 as by definition with the odd exception they were drafted by shit teamsI don't watch college football so I don't invest early in the hype that these players get but year after year it keeps getting proved to me that the draft is a crap shoot and none of them are worth the hype, you may as well draw names from a hat. None of this years QB's that have started from day 1 have been particularly worthy of the hype and that goes back several years.
I know that's how the stat sheet looks, but wasn't really the case. They are playing with 2 deep safeties and shite linebackers which just lets teams run on them. It's all about not giving up big passing plays, but 11/12/13 play drives are fine if it gets you the touchdown. Apart from the 1 of his 3, Hill was there just to finish. You are correct though, against zero pash rush the OL held up well.They still moved the ball pretty well against the Chiefs defense. Problem was they couldn't stop Tyreek Hill.
Nail on head.Don't really agree with this where QB's are concerned. It's not always the top guy though. If you look at last year Herbert is going to be a Top 5 QB and went after Burrow and Tua.

You're not wrong, I just feel that too often the blame is laid wholly at the feet of the individual player.In a way that affirms my point then. It's all hype until they start playing - then they've little chance of succeeding.
I'll give you Herbert, even that involved a huge slice of 'luck' though. If only that doctor hadn't had punctured Taylors lung with a needle before the game!
