I feel like Clady and Franklin have both benefitted DRAMATICALLY by the change
...but some of these guys (Beadles, especially, and Koppen > Walton) have just gotten way better.
That is where I'm at, times about ten. I had absolutely no faith in our OL coming into this season. I honestly felt like Manning had no chance of staying healthy this season. Clady and Franklin played like we knew they could, the other guys better than we could have hoped, IMO.
Couldn't be happier to be more wrong.
