Another thing to think about is that Minnesota sacked every QB on their 17 game schedule EXCEPT one... Matt Ryan. I looked at that game and saw a line that was fighting with the best of the best and that was with Garland and Wes starting. I observed the following:
10.8 yards per completed catch
0 for 29 sacking Matt
No INTs, Fumbles
102 rushing avging 4.6
But the 1 for10 on 3rd down killed us: besides penalties... on 13 incomplete passes:
1 hurry and drop in 29 plays
4 key drops
1 screen the defense sniffed out
1 PI no call
The pocket was pretty clean, guys battled... Garland and Wes were starters... we could've won... the line isn't THAT bad.
Garland and Wes are great backups for us. Now plug in an UPGRADE at right OG and we're going places.
