He is playing out of position. The guy is a center and nothing else. He doesn't have the raw strength of a guard, but we put him there anyway for some asinine reason.

Agreed. Konz can't play guard in the NFL. He's a natural center. That's why I would like to see us give Baker, Blalock, Konz, Clabo and Holmes a look next preseason.

If it hasn't been crystal clear to TD all dam season that we need a wholesale shake-up and rebuild of the OL, then this game should be the convincer.

This season? What about last season? What about the season before that? What about when Vick was here?

O-Line has been an issue since the beginning of time. If our FO hasn't realized it by now, they will never realize it. We are drafting RB, TE, DE in the top 3 rounds.

Did it not seem to others that on a number of plays, no one was open, and that Matt was either had to pull the ball down or was double clutching. There were also multiple blitzs that did not get picked up.

That's because there was nobody open on many of the plays because the Bucs were mugging our receivers and not getting called for any penalties. Teams don't get away with that crap in the playoffs.

What was going on with the receivers? They couldn't get open too save me or anybody on this board's life. It was check down, check down, ryan scramble, throw to gonzo all day.

Baker isn't strong enough to play RG. Holmes has never played the position. He is a LT. Blalock already starts at LG. Clabo sucked there that's why he was moved to RT. We need to draft a RG or sign one in FA.

True. It's been a glaring weakness on this team for a long time. I stand corrected.
