    Welcome to the board and you are right on the mark with your first post. Our OL is terrible. Put Ben behind a good or great OL and he would be as good as any QB in the league.

    Eh Chadman, I'm not completely buying what you are selling here. While I agree some of the OL woes are on Ben...the fact is this...our OL is really that bad. They don't open up holes in the running game. And there are many many sacks where an OLman just got manhandled, or a guy came free untouched.

    There were plays in the last game where Foster was pushed straight back into Ben like he was on roller skates. Same for Whimper. Those two names equal 40% of the problem with our OL and Shawn is right on the mark---they aren't good as a group. Only Pouncey and DeCastro are legit NFL starters.
