    Agreed. But average is a hell of alot better than the way some on here make our OL out to be.
    marginally? Maybe. Hell of alot better? Hell no!
    I don't know. First game I watched yesterday was the Cleveland game. I bet the Noodle would have nightmares if he had to rely on that cast of characters.

    Deadskins, although a bit better, sure didn't do McNabb any favors, however, they did open some pretty nice lanes for my new favorite fantasy RB.

    Add to the mix Tahi and AD canīt block and you gotta a recipent for disaster
    So is it the OL not blocking thier man or is it the FB/RB not getting thier man?

    As I said in my post game notes, only saw the OLmen miss 3 blocks that were obvious, the other times that a OLmen let the guy through it was within a reasonable amount of time for the Noodle to get rid of the ball or it was someone missing the blitz pickup.

    Again, I do not blame the OL for a RB's problem.
    Look Marr,You know a whole lot more than me about football,but you just canīt say our OL is playing fine when our Qb is hitted 13 times and sacked 4 times game in and game out(and donīt come up with the Noddle needs too much time to get rid of it stuff).Our RB/FB canīt block either but thatīs OLīs main job,protect your Qb,and that numbers donīt say so.

    Other teams know our OL sucks and they just crowded the box plain and simple.I think ask Chilly to flex our playbook,during this situations, and try running some screen passes to Harvin or AD is too much for him .

    Agreed. But average is a hell of alot better than the way some on here make our OL out to be.
    LOL!

    If the Doodles could make the lofty level of "Average" there would be dancing in the streets of Minnesota.

    They could just as well stand still and hold signs that say "QB--THIS WAY!"

    LOL, maybe they should start holding up signs that point the rush in another direction cause the QB sure isn't moving around much.

    I would say it is a mixture. RB's are definitely a problem but the OL is guilty of not always following through on their blocks.

    It is like they block the initial pass rush then stop and pat themselves on the back instead of following through until the play is dead.

    Attention span is a blip for the Doodles.

    One second it's "Block."

    The next second it's, "Want Big Mac and Fries."
