I think it will be improved.

We didnt give up a lot of sacks last year, but we did consistently allow pressure up the middle, mostly because of Peterman who was replaced at least 1 year too late.

Reiff will have his growing pains, but I expect him to do as well as Backus did last year.

Biggest question is RT.

While Cherilus was terrible at run blocking, he was quite good in pass protection.

Even if our pass blocking isnt as good, if our run blocking can be better, it would make things easier on the passing game as a whole.

Won't know until I see them play.

To many new starters to have any real analysis.

I don't think Reiff will struggle as much as people think at LT. I think at very worst Reiff is equal to Backus.

Rob Sims returns and is solid.

Dom always is the big question and weak link. Added weight, maybe having an upgrade at RG will help.

Warford > Peterman. Fairly confident in saying that even without seeing him play yet.

I was never a huge fan of Goz though he was pretty solid for us the past couple years. I'd say RT IMO is our most worrisome spot though I'd wait to see how Fox looks before adding another Vet to the mix.

IMO it's not much of a stretch to think our O-line MAY actually be better than last year. Only time will tell though.

I am a bit excited about a younger OL but that also worries me a bit too.

Chi and Min can get to the QB decent.


I have high hopes for Reiff but kind of reluctant to make any judgements off this group yet.

Cool thing is we got some bigger tes too. I see williams n grew as the better blockers of the group. Line looks like a power line now.. think with the weapons we got they would want a more agile unit. But never know still gotta see I guess. And still need a more stout center.. its an almost garrentee imo we pick up some OL next year soo. I just hope Stafford survives. Butif we use are tes creatively we sshould be ok. I bet they keep as many tes as wrs this year, atleast I would.

There were some articles mentioning Williams growing into an OL actually in future

Frankly? Nervous. It's not like we were teeming with Pro Bowlers last year, but protection was mostly adequate and now we're replacing three offensive linemen all a once. Fox and Hilliard are both unknowns, and while Reiff and Warford have a ton of talent, they're inexperienced. This offensive line could actually be really terrible. It's not like I've gone into previous seasons expecting excellence, but at least you knew to expect pretty average performance, and now we might not even get that.
