Default Offense Line

Worst game ever played by an offensive line for any team in any game ever.

They had no chance when the D knew what was coming on every single play.

If you can't out physical them you better out play-call them and we did neither.

I'm now 100% behind the drafting of a tackle in the 1st round. Then we can move Franklin to his rightful position inside, and move Beadles to his rightful position on the bench.

And what do we do with Walton?

in all fairness, not like fox is gonna be a real mystery as a coach. NE had a lot of time to prepare and we are a conservative team. I don't think our Oline is as good as "Simms" thinks it is. Tim had 2 blind sacks in the first half with an extra lineman in.

I think it's pretty obvious the lack of a full traditional passing game is not just on Tebow. Receivers dropping balls and the linemen missing more blocks than a three year old's pack of legos isn't conducive to an efficient passing game.

What other games over 75 years of the NFL were you comparing such a statement "Worst game ever played by an offensive line for any team in any game ever". I've seen plenty of games and it wasn't. Call Archie Manning and ask him about the first 8 years of his career. Your statement was idiotic.

I have been watching football for the last 30 years ever since I can remember. I don't remember watching a game in which an offensive line just got totally destroyed throughout agame.

A lot of it falls on coaching as well. The Patriots totally exploited the Broncos predictability.

I'm getting frusterated with the lack or progress w/Beadles.

Hochstein was burned on almost every play... the tackles were okay... Walton is stil la below-average starter.

Well, I go back to 1965 in my memory. The 0-14 Tampa team was horrific. I watched John Unitas get destroyed for 3 quarters by the Fearsome Foursome of the LA Rams before they mercifully took him out of the game only to watch his backup get carted off. The before mentioned OL Archie Manning played behind in New Orleans was unbelievably bad. The man must have led the league in getting sacked almost every year for quite a while and they couldn't run the ball effectively either.

This was one game and you are over reacting terribly. This game was snowballing and was indeed bad, but far from the worst ever.

But Phil Simms gave both Franklin and Beadles props tonight. He said Beadles was one heck off a pulling guard and we are set for at least 10 years with a Franklin/Clady tackle tandem.

The fact that you have to go back to 1965 says it all about our offensive line.

Hopefully with a better blocking LG in Waltons play will be adequate. We have too many holes to draft both RT and Center. Maybe a FA pickup is available but we also need to fix the Defense ( MLB , safety, CB, DT) and get another RB, WR to pair with DT, and TE.

We did allright for the first year of a 3 year plan. We need to remember that and stick to it. Hopefully a few FA will come to us and Bowlen will open the checkbook.

It says nothing about our OL. I didn't have to go back that far to make any comparison. What are you talking about.

Are you seriously taking anything Simms says seriously?

Realistically, we will have to spread our attention around in a number of area. Hopefully, we will open the checkbook and strike some gold free agency like we did at RB. When we went from the Wade Phillips to the Mike Shanahan era we were incredibly successful in free agency. I thought we were quite thin when Wade left although I think he did trade for Zimmerman.

Franklin was not okay. He was a turnstile for much of the game, and the Pats don't even have an elite edge rusher.

Or you could do something that actually makes sense, like keep him around for depth. He was a 3rd round pick, and most 3rd round players are depth players.
