    This is really misleading.

    The bottom line is Kyler's mobility and rushing ability makes them look WAY better than they actually are.

    We have not played good teams yet either except for SF, and that has to be taken into consideration as well.

    Carolina and Washington both looked like good pass rush teams to me.

    lol guess you’re going to be saying this the whole year because SF(with Bosa) & WAS were the pretty much the best DLines we were gonna face all year

    Idk every time I’m watching it looks like Kyler gots plenty of time. He’s not running cause he has to his best runs are designed

    we have actually played really good defensive fronts and shut them down

    Y’all can hype or gripe all you want but the simple fact is......
    This line is better than the lines we rode to the super bowl and the nfc championship game.

    As soon as Kugler got here our Oline has been solid. Don’t let him leave.

    They have been above average but they ain't top 5. The Steelers would destroy us.

    I'd put them more around 15 once you factor in some weak opponents and help from scheme and Kyler's legs.

    15 is still awesome for us.

    I would agree 100% with this take. I think Kugler has done a great job, as another post has already said. You do whatever is necessary to keep him here as long as possible. Murray’s legs, no doubt, help this OL out tremendously too. But, compared to what we’re accustomed to, this OL is a huge improvement. Even with Kugler & Murray, it’s a middle of the pack OL.

    They’re fine against the pass. The run ranking is distorted. First by Murray who only benefits some from line blocking. Also if you take his yards and Drake’s long run against stacked line in the last game, the run game is not impressive.

    But if you take away murray and drake's long runs that distorts the stats as well. They are what they are because it all counts. IMO

    disagree on the NFC Title Game 2015 team. That team opened up holes big enough for Chris Johnson’s old ass to
    blow through, then Ellington, then DJ started mashing people when he got his shot. They also gave the biggest pockets to Palmer I’ve ever seen as a Cardinals fan. That team’s passing gam needed to give Palmer time for guys to get downfield And the o-line overwhelmingly gave that to him. I think people forget how dominating that offense was. Prime Larry, John Brown streaking, the other WR before he went fully alky, Nelson as a fourth burner and a big stable of RBs. We just ran into a buzz saw D against Carolina and Palmer played the worst game of his career.

    that said, this O-line has played pretty well.
