Oh hell, if Mills is -11.4 then Webb was the national debt.
The run blocking is not good. We really need a short yardage game and we just don't have it. But... considering where we came from, I'm thrilled with this Oline. Mills looks like a rookie sometimes.... go figure. What do you expect out of a 5th round "project"? He is developing way above where he was projected to perform. I don't think many people thought Bushrod was the best LT in the league but he certainly is an upgrade. Overall, this Oline has the potential to grow moving forward and for the 1st year together I'd give them some extra credit considering none of them played together on the same line before seven or eight weeks ago.
Speaking of Bushrod, where are all those people talking about PFF and how they ranked Webb over Bushrod and how he gave up so many sacks and pressures w/the great Brees and his quick release? 6 sacks in 6 games, I doubt all of them came from Bushrods side. I'd say that's one hell of an upgrade over Webb.
The best thing about Bushrod is that we're not having to max protect like we had to do with Webb. Webb, usually had a small army of players, having to help with his blocking chores. We still give help at times to Bushrod, but it's not like having to do it so often, as we did with J'Marcus.
This really helps our offense, when skill players can be skill players, rather than J'Marcus Webb's little helpers.
well the team is still max protecting, but it's not b/c of the vet LT, but b/c of the rookie RT, which is at least acceptable.
I'll take max protection to help a rookie RT (he isn't playing that bad) over a vet LT.
