In the Starting Line-Up
Offensive line has been the biggest disappointment of the season. This was supposed to be our strength.

Instead we can't run and can't protect the quarterback more than 2 seconds. But the talent is largely intact. So what is it? Coaching?

Losing your OLine coach due to Corona protocols right before the season isn't a recipe for success,

Let the Kicking Whisperer have a go with the O line, it can't hurt

Is it really a kicking whisperer or is Folk just good? Didn't do much whispering to Rohrwasser (and only a little whispering to Nordin).

Dam... If Herron's also ruled-out, then the OL might look like this:

Cachoo - Thanksdad - Andrews - Karras - Onwenu

Hunter Henry's gonna have to help out the LT no matter who it is...
This is what I'd want it to look like even with Herron available. I'm done with seeing him in the starting lineup.

I think the special teams coach Accord has been doing a great job. Folk, Bailey, Gunner, Slater, Bethel, he's running the best ST in the league...

Sure, but that doesn't make him specifically a kicker whisperer. It's been demonstrated that not just any kicker can come here and be successful. Folk is just a good kicker.

I'm certainly done with seeing him at RT, that's for sure... He & Yesir step right on through Durant both fukcing suck there... Don't know why Bill traded for that useless fukcing slob Durant anyway.

Herron looked much more comfortable on the Left side last week, however, than he has ever looked on the Right side... Understandable, since he was the starting LT for Wake Forest his last 4 years there... I'd rather see Herron at LT vs Dallas than Yawndy, who will be making only his 2nd NFL start and still needs time to settle into his role.

Credit to sb1 for finding this one. Bone crushing hit on Mac after Wynn completely whiffs at LT. Wynn needs to move to LG. A total disaster extending this guy for 11m.

OLine looked slightly better after inserting Michael Onwenu at right tackle.

It would've looked even better if Thanksdad had been removed after his holding penalty cost Jakobi Meyers his first NFL TD and the Pats a 20/21-7 lead... That penalty & the Cachoo whiff on the very next play completely turned the game around... and Not in a good way.

Yeah Ferentz first to go this week if Mason comes back. Karras at LG and Mason back at RG. Onwenu keep him at RT.

But if Shack still isn't ready, then this MUST be the starting 5 vs the Jete:

Herron - Wynn/Lose - Andrews - Karras - Onwenu.

No Durant; no fukcing Thanksdad; and after yesterday, no Cachoo.
