I'm certainly in agreement there are other teams I am more worried about.....
Just because all OL are not what they used to be does not mean I can look at this one and LIKE it.....which is fine, the defense should still be elite, and the QB should be more consistently good to very good. But not using early picks in the OL to build that elite defense might have costs. They are clearly one of the top 5 teams in the league, I'd feel better if the OL was better.
Sure, but context is important.Would it make any sense to rip the Twins for not having their starters average 8 innings?Considering no one is doing that, it seems like a flawed criticism.
Offensive line play is a league wide epidemic of awfulness.Spending early picks is not a guarantee.The Pats spent one this year and their guy is hurt (injuries tend to plague lines).The Cowboys have used three - they get one injury and they're mediiocre to bad.It's about resource allocation and context.Yes, I wish they were better too, but 99% of NFL fans can say the same thing.
