    Seriously, our oline looks like a frickin turn style. Is there any chance Vollmer will start this year? If the Browns got to Brady last night, imagine what the giants are going to do - even there backup lineman are good. not only that, the skins have a good defense too.

    Vollmer looked a lot worse than any of the starters, and he was playing against the second string.


    The issues the first string had were the protection calls.

    Not to mention if the BROWNS were getting to Brady last night from another City, we're REALLY screwed!

    I'm not quite sure that Vollmer is going to solve any of the O-Line's problems. He looked pretty bad last night against the second stringers. They can get the pass protection down, however I want to see clear evidence that the run blocking is better. The RBs still didn't have an awful lot of holes to run through last night.

    I broke down one series with Vollmer in the game so far, he had one good run block, he was beaten on inside counter-moves twice on pass plays, he had a couple so-so run blocks that barely managed to get the job done. I haven't broken down Light or Kaczur yet, but I doubt they did that much worse.

    I think people on this board SEVERELY underestimate the influence scheming and gameplanning has on pass protection. We looked very vanilla in our pass pro last night, and I can't believe the overreacting on this board.

    Say it with me now...PRE...SEASON

    Vollmer is not nearly ready to start. The open question is who will be the Game Day backup at OT. It is not clear that Vollmer is ready for that role, and LeVoir is still injured.

    Protection calls is right as BB mentioned after the game. Kaczur's missed block was because he protected inside and thought Fred Taylor had the outside per the call but Taylor went to block the middle which was taken care of. That will be worked out for the regular season, I'm not worried at all.

    Clearly, Maroney, Light, Seymour and Sanders were at fault on the play.

    It was a play action pass, so there was no way Taylor could perform the play action and get outside fast enough to block. Also after the play Kaczur went over to Neal to ***** about it, not Taylor. He definitly had a mental breakdown

    Like I said, you should totally submit your resume to the FO. Your combination of draft prescience and MMQB skills are unparalleled.

    Do you think Chad is kicking off and kicking Extra Points in a regular season game?
