On the flip side, Brady has taken 26 sacks this year already. He took 27 all of last year, and has had 6 full seasons where he took 26 or fewer. Confused


Chandler Jones is top 10 in the league in sacks. Everyone on our OL besides Solder and Vollmer before he got hurt have played pretty poorly


Solder hasn't been anywhere near as good as he was last year. I might be on my own but it seems the left hand side of the line has been getting beat far more consistently than years past. It can't all be Mankins can it?
For the most part the problem has been the interior line.


I am a big fan of OG Cyril Richardson at Baylor now.

6'5" 340 lbs Senior

Very powerful yet explosive OL who has played both inside and out at Baylor, where they have the fastest scoring offense in college football which cant be easy on a large athlete but he excels and is projected as a first rounder.


From the (admittedly small amount of) tape I've seen on Richardson he plays very lazy. Stops his feet in pass pro and relies on upper body strength, and really fails to fight for positioning on zone running plays

Solder has been very good this year. He hasn't been perfect, but no LT is. Especially when the LG has been as bad as Mankins has been at times.

Wendell has been inconsistent and Connolly has been awful. Cannon isn't very good in pass pro either. It's a mess.

The increase in sacks might be because he has never had a quick security for half the season. Shane has been on IR, Gronk, Danny.

I miss Woody.
