Thread: Why does our O-line get hurt so much?

  1. #1

    Why does our O-line get hurt so much?

    When our O-line keeps getting hurt week after week, there has to be a cause and effect in there somewhere. Is it bad technique? Something needs to change...

    Our OL gets hurt because Bruce Arians can't coach.

    That's a very good question and the only logical explanation is some kind of voodoo curse.

    Yeah, a voodoo curse by the name of Bruce Arians.

    Not sure about that, I'm pretty sure that DeCastro got hurt because the guy next to him (Adams I think) on the play got bull rushed or simply blown up and pushed into DeCastro, which isn't bad luck, it's someone getting manhandled.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    it was Marcus Gilbert who got pushed into both David Johnson and David DeCastro and ended their seasons.

    Thanks for the help, I knew someone got blown up.

    I thought I had remembered that Kugler's Bills OL had the same issues, and so was thinking maybe he was the missing link. But I wiki'd him, and they only mentioned how well his O-line did, nothing about multiple injuries.

    So, I'm inclined to believe it is indeed a voodoo curse. Under those conditions I believe the soundest drafting strategy is to ignore the OL completely, putting all our $$ into "skill positions", since it's just a waste spending even one red cent on the OL.

    HA!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    Yep, it's time to trade all of our valuable o-linemen for the best possible skill queers.

    So we can package Pouncy, and um, hmmm... Let's just start with Pouncy.
    BnB Mock 2015
    1. Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut
    2. Nate Orchard, DE/OLB, Utah
    3. Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn
    4. Senquez Golson, CB, Ole Miss
    5. Lorenzo Mauldin, DE/OLB, Louisville
    6. Matt Jones, RB, Florida
    6. Darren Waller, WR/TE, Georgia Tech
    7. Adam Shead, G, Oklahoma


    Another AS masterpiece.
