Oline is coming together (Carimi did struggle yesterday though)
Every game they're looking a bit better. Tice is helping them too (some blocking help, and better play calling). If this oline will continue to improve a little game-by-game, then we'll be fine this season.
Carimi had a tough day yesterday, but those kind of games are going to happen with a guy who is virtually a rookie this year, due to last year being injured. He has the talent. Now, he's getting NFL experience to learn how to use that talent. In fact, he may be a LT of the future once he gets this year of experience under his belt.
Webb looks very solid. Even on plays without help, he's doing better than I imagined he could be. He's getting better every game now too.
Rachal is also getting better every game. Originally, I thought he was a bum. I was wrong. He's better pass blocking than I thought he could be. He looks pretty solid run blocking too.
Garza is still a decent center. Not great, but decent.
Louis is rock solid. I hope we can just leave him alone & not switch him to a new position like we did last year. Don't screw with success. Leave the man alone to excel at RG.
It would be a HUGE benefit if this oline can be decent this year, so that Emery doesn't have to replace everything and start from scratch. He would then be able to add a couple of stud olinemen in the off-season next year - knowing that these two guys would take this oline to the NEXT level. That is a night-and-day easier task than having to rebuild the entire unit. In fact, obviously, you couldn't fix an entire oline in a single off season. It would be a multi-year task.
So, I'm really hoping this oline continues to get better week-by-week - all season long.
