Where do we go from here with this pitiful oline?
My thinking is that even if we could find a castoff from another team's cuts this week, he'd know nothing about our offense, and it would take time to get him up-to-speed with our oline members. But maybe my mid season or so he'd be decent (something we don't have with our present group).
Watching our starters last night it was crystal clear that:
1) Webb is bad.
2) C.Will is worse.
3) Both Rachal AND Spencer are pitiful LG's. They were DOMINATED last night. At one point our running game was averaging 1/2 per carry. Yes, that's 18 INCHES per carry. Forte had defenders on him in the backfield.
4) Cariimi looks like he can become a decent RT. Lance Louis didn't look as bad as the left side players, but certainly nothing to write home about.l
5) Garza looks like crap last night. I don't know WHAT that was all about. The interior linemen couldn't run block, and the pass blocking wasn't that much better (actually, on pass blocking, our LT's looked better than our interior linemen - and THAT'S bad).
Guys, this isn't a "gelling" or "pixie dust" need. You are not going to fix this with 3 step drops (you gotta be able to run the ball better than an 18 inch per carry average in the NFL).
We simply don't have the talent.
