    Disable Jersey

    Middle of the pack, based upon what we see. It might be more, or less, in an offense that was less pass reliant.

    I picked 16 to 20 and think they're wildly overrated generally. Last year they were poorish and very inconsistent.

    Ranked them 11-15 since our RB's havent been productive much plus our line is designed for keeping brady upright.

    No Jersey Selected

    I voted 11-15, based upon the hope - however slight - that Mankins returns, and upon the success enjoyed during the '08 season, when Bill & Dante & the OLmen knew that they had to run to have any chance of keeping Cassel healthy & productive.

    If Mankins leaves, and Bill displays no confidence in LaMa, and the offense loses patience early in pre-season games (e.g.: empty-backfield shotgun formations on 3rd/< 3 yards), then this becomes a 16-20 unit, at best.

    I would say this year they will be a top 5 rushing team...I think SEABASS is going all boilermaker on some LBs this year...

    it's hard to be a good run blocking team when your top rushing play is a draw from shotgun. runing the football is a attitude and if they would run the football more then the OL would be better at blocking



    this is a team that likes to still throw the football in the 4th QT when up by 2 TD's
