    As good as our O-line is in the last two games and the dallas game they've proven that they can't handle a big front 7. They got man handled last night and last week and in dallas

    They are who they are.

    This is by far the best they have ever played together overall when you look at the season as a whole, so we have to give them their props.

    I just find it to be unrealistic to expect these guys to be something vastly removed from the group of guys they have been in previous seasons. They will struggle in some games, and look great in others.

    Frankly, I don't think our pass protection is a concern overall, as long as they keep plugging away. I think our run blocking has always been somewhat average.

    I am a lot more worried that our defense won't be able to contain teams in the playoffs, many of whom we already faced this year. That would put more pressure on the offense. We will find out if the defense is just going through a lull.

    I don't really see the Oline as being a concern currently in most games, but it would be nice to have more of an identity in our run game.

    They did step up when the game was on the line. Look at the the last drive, when Brady stood there looking for receivers. When it is crunch time and the opponent is throwing everything they have at you, and they don't touch the qb, thats the ultimate line.

    Not sure I buy this argument. The Ravens dropped 8 into coverage and rushed 3...
