    I’m really enjoying the recent lack of eephus snaps.

    Karras has proven to be a competent center. Not spectacular, but competent and i'll take it.

    I agree Karras has improved. But the real takeaway is how much better the line looked as soon as Newhouse took over for Cannon.

    Those early snaps in games one and two were scary. Glad those are behind us.

    I thought it was risky when he was released a couple years ago. Glad we retained him. He’s a good center. Stronger than Andrews, he’s hard to bull rush on.

    I’m not exactly known for player evaluations, but I’ve always believed that Karras was a capable IOL.

    Do we know if Andrews is back next year? Will he ever play again?

    Karras was not good before so this an encouraging sign. Losing Andrews was very bad.

    As absolutely historically Terrible as Oldhouse was at LT, he played better at RT on Sunday than Cannon has played there All Season Long.

    And compared to the disgracefully weak-ass Thanksdad, anybody is bound to look good...

    Earlier this year karras was struggling with making the correct line calls in addition to not having the functional strength and quickness to handle interior defensive linemen.

    however, he has improved over the course of the year and is making almost all the line calls correctly. He is, with the experience gained, now a decent backup center/guard,

    I have no knowledge of how Andrews is progressing, but I believe he can be back at 100 percent next year.

    He’s gone from Ted Karras to Ned Flanders in a remarkable amount of time

    Good player. Along with Wynn and Mason improvement this line is starting to look competent again. Would just be nice if Cannon could return to 2018 Cannon.

    Weeks 12-16 (4 starts):

    0 sacks
    0 hits
    0 hurries
    0 penalties

    Your negativism is now locked in: there's now no way his stats can improve.
