    We all know the obivous answer of KC and the Seahawks, but are they really that good, are they overhyped? Im a big time football fan but really dont know all that much about alot of the o-lines of other teams other than the pats.

    its fair to say the pats have a underrated oline but who else is out there? Broncos? Rams? what about the other teams in the afc east, Jets? Bills?

    Just looking to stir up conversation, as for the pats not only are they underrated but have produced a solid line for the past 4 years now with little to no recognition

    thoughts?

    Great question.. I think the Pats have an up and coming line.. All young players will multiyear deals..Two things to point out are:

    1. Health of the OL. Koppen and Light need to stay healthy..
    2. KC took a Hit with their OT's.. I think you will see them take a step back as a team in general.. (Herm Edwards is one of the worst coaches)

    I agree, I really like the pats line situation, its a good mix of players who are only getting better, and of course injuries will crack and squad.

    To be fair to Herm he is more of a defence guy ..

    Oh he isn't even that.. He is a DB coach that never took a good young player and made him stand out.. I've watched and gone to Jet games thru his reign (brother is a big jets fan with access to tkts) and I can't tell you how many times the guy would put his team in a bad position..

    I love how none of them to press, always did think that was pretty badass. They must do something right if they keep pushing out 1000 yard backs year after year

    They can't be....Manning said they have "protection problems" so from Mannings mouth to the medias ears they can no longer be considered a top line.....Manning has spoken...

    I think the Eagles have the most underrated line in the league, they made a solid addition with Winston Justice who I think will turn out to be just as good as D'Brickashaw Ferguson.

    I agree. They had one game where Pitt missed with their heads and people remember them for it. They weren't bad at run blocking either.

    KC are still great. They've added Kyle Turley, IIRC. Our O line is a work in progress. The pass protection is pretty good, but the run blocking didn't always work that well last year. If Neal can be more consistent and Kaczur/Gorin can contribute at RT, it should be productive again.
