The bigger issue is why did we come into the season with only 6 viable NFL players up front? this ignores any potential contingency like season ending injury or someone not panning out. We had all off season to acquire and train a solid group of linemen that included some depth. Now with a little luck, Brown will work out, Adams just had a really bad game, and we could be up to 7 or 8 serviceable 'above the line' players.
Being "Above the line" will all depend on high the line is set.
