    I believe this season hinges on the O-Line. Kyler Murray's success hinges on this O-Line's ability to protect him. He had the best Oline in college which gave him tons of time to scan the field and throw to his weapons. He wont have that on this team. He will be running for his life but KM has shown he has superior pocket presence and ability to scramble when needed compared to Rosen. I really hope this Oline doesnt hurt his confidence.

    The best comparison to what he will be facing is what he faced against Alabama. I watched the tape last night. It was rough early, but he recovered. He needs to stay HEALTHY above all. Not ideal for him to start from day 1. The O-line as it stands is respectable unless there is an injury

    I remember Cam Newton (I know people will hate me for keep bringing his name up) scorched us for a record setting 400 yards in a losing effort in his first game in the NFL. Not saying KM would put up those type numbers but since he’s being touted as knowing the offense already and KK being an offensive genius then no doubt he will have a great first game. So I’m not concerned with him starting. The ideal situation is having a seasoned vet start but we don’t have that and I’m not concerned about it. His health depends on how the oline holds up. Gone is that hot garbage from the Bengals and new coaching staff. But it takes time for oline to gel so i expect happy feet from Murray early on and no one should be surprised from that either if he’s getting hammered.

    Hopefully there aren’t a lot of veteran OL on IR by the end of the year.

    This OL revolves around health. DJ Humphries might not be a great LT but when playing he is starting caliber for example. We have a great OL coach and it seems we have better depth. If this OL stays healthy, there is not a issue

    I believe our depth now allows for 2 injuries. Beyond that there will be issues. That is kind of the same for every team though

    You can be pessimistic all you want and hide it under the guise of being a “realist” but to throw ad hominems like that without a real rebuttal is juvenile and crass to say the least. If I called your stupid and dumb then I’ll get a warning from the mods. How about rebut something with substance next time you want to quote me.

    Biggest thing I got from this interview was Gilbert stated the offensive linemen he has been practicing with:

    LT: Humphries
    LG: Pugh
    OC: Shipley
    RG: Sweezy
    RT: Gilbert

    That is just quoting what he said, so take it for what it is worth.

    Happy to see they put Pugh at LG, the only place he has ever had success in the NFL. He was Pugh-trid at RG last year.

    I am not going to be surprised if Shipley starts at OC, either. I sm not the biggest fan of Shipley but centers in the NFL are currently lacking. The kid out of Georgia looks promising, tho.

    I think Mason Cole will be a lifer utility OL player....not a bad thing either.

    You compared him to a historic player/feat and said "no doubt" he'd have a "great" first game. That's beyond homerism. I gave it exactly the amount of attention it deserved. There's COPIOUS amounts of doubt, not least because the team around Murray isn't going to be very good, and even if they gel and become good, it will be farther down the road, not in the 1st game. It's POSSIBLE Murray will be great in the first game, but unlikely. And there's a whole ton of "doubt" about it.

    Quick nitpicking? You said "quick" and not "quit." Not sure if I replied quickly enough, though ;)

    You can stand by it. Makes about as much sense as William Henry Harrison's going through with his inauguration speech, but you can stand by it.

    Not to mention, you called KK an "offensive genius." Guy has never called an NFL play. We don't know what he is.
