    The OL has absolutely held their own with last 2 games, after getting worked by the Bears DL. I love the aspect of “chipping” DE and having Doug back can’t be ignored. He is very good in pass pro. Bosa will have to be accounted for, but I’d be dissapointed if the OL regressed this week.

    1. 1.1


      Doug has developed into an excellent pass blocker. The line is playing steadily better too.

    Our much maligned O Line has been coming together rather nicely I would say.
    I just hope that Sweezy (the ghost) is taking this time to learn how to pass block.
    Is he out for the entire year?

    1. 2.1


      Yes. He was shut down two weeks ago. Disappointing to say the least.

    Well it does help as this has the been the healthiest I think our line has been as well. The last two weeks have been outstanding and watching him in the backfield patting the ball while the line builds a wall around him against Seattle was impressive. Koetter has always had a strong suit for building good protection with little talent at times. He did it all those years in Atlanta as well.

    One time I’d like to see Dirk call a play where Jameis throws the ball to tackle eligible Gosder Cherilus. Maybe then he wouldn’t get called for failing to report as he did against the Seahawks.
