    We had 8 sacks and gave up 2... and out rushed them when they have one of the best in the game. I’ll take that every week.

    Air raid with a power run game. A great mix, keeps the defense running left and right all day. Keep switching WRs in and out and you'll be fresher than the defense in the 4th quarter.

    I told a lot of my Philly friends that if we stayed healthy, we would be ok. I think we may be a middle 10 unit in the NFL now.

    Scheme, coaching, and health. All going our way right now.

    With that being said: :stick:

    To be honest I have no idea what is going on, I cannot believe our group of lineman are playing this well.

    I do think some of it is the level of competition they have gone against the last 3 weeks, but even so their performance has been amazing.

    They are stacking solid outings and that is encouraging.

    Yes, staying injury free matters the most. I’ll give the OL their due, as they have been better......but. Once KK became predictable in the weather, our offense became stagnant. It certainly didn’t help that we were missing Johnson & Kirk. Let’s also not kid ourselves. Even though K1 ran himself into a sack yesterday, his mobility saves this OL about 3-4 would be sacks every week. We’ll see how they do against the Saints next week before we crown them. Don’t get me wrong. Against the Saints, no one can expect perfection. But KK better be craftier than he was yesterday. Or it’ll be a very long afternoon. That Saints D is very, very good.

    As well as availability... Who made up our starting OL last year while Shipley, Pugh, Iupati, and Humphries were on IR?

    On one particular week it was Cunningham, Gossett, Cole, Aboushi, and Holden. Have any of them started a game this year, for any team?

    Total snap counts for 2019:

    Korey Cunningham: 60 for the Patriots
    Colby Gossett: 0. Browns practice squad player
    Mason Cole: 3
    Oday Aboushi: 0. Backup for Detroit
    Will Holden: 0. 49ers practice squad player

    I'm not one to use the expression that "It can't get worse" but in the case of the 2018 Cardinals OL, that is indeed a fact. They've held up well thus far, and have looked good against the NFL's version of the sisters of the poor. The next five games will be a great test to see what we've really got. They've had half a season to gel. Should give Keim and Co. the data they need to start making decisions towards next years roster.

    Go Cards!!!

    It really really sucks that we lost Gilbert. This line could’ve been really nasty.

    I have been focused on Murray the last 2 games, he is the most improved player so far
    Don't say he should be a starter but gained a lot of confidence and looks like a different player

    I think the other Murray has been solid.

    Fans tend to underestimate continuity on the offensive line.

    Humphries had had his best year yet. Wins most of his assignments, definitely the best available tackle and the Cardinals should resign him to a long term deal. In retrospect, the whole "knee deep" thing should have never been made public.

    Pugh is starting to play the way the Cardinals envisioned when they signed him. Last week I saw him take Grady Jarrett and block him 5 yards off the ball on a few plays.

    Shipley is the whopping boy for some, but he is the brains of the offensive line.

    Sweezy has been a brawler and brings an attitude to the line. He has been exactly what the line needed, a tough guy who fights every snap.

    Justin Murray started pretty rough, but he usually wins his battle now.

    Kugler has been the key. Excellent coach and KK said in his post game presser, he is the one drawing up the running plays.

    I have been one of the biggest critics of our offensive line, but it has been steadily improving. KK's playcalling has definitely helped. All of the jet sweep motions are causing a lot of confusion.
