While I appreciate that our OL did not perform as well as we'd like this year, I think it's hyperbole to suggest that they were so bad "it can't be too much worse." We were an option team last year with a QB that couldn't make option reads, and we still did fairly well offensively even with several expected starters and 2deep hurt at times.
Cant answer but i can say its the most important spot and i hope to god we can pencil anyone in that spot and stick with them since that would be a sign they are playing good. Its the one spot on OL we need an answer quick on. If not could be trouble.Is Burden currently being penciled in as our starting Center next year or is this something that will work itself out as the year progresses?
I have high hopes for Burden. Didn't he receive scout team honors before he got injured? I would guess O'Reilly is ahead of him right now because he backed up Finch this year.Is Burden currently being penciled in as our starting Center next year or is this something that will work itself out as the year progresses?
The reality is the ol did not play well at all, in fact considering everything it may have been the worst performance over a year of pj's tenure. And what i mean by considering everything is time in system, experience, etc etc. the 2008 OL did just as good.
So is it hyperbole? Some. But truth to it too. I cant see our line getting much worse next year IF and i said IF above they stay healthy through spring and fall camp.
Of course we havent seen that happen since 2008 and 2009 either.
