What changed is Gel Head dismantled the Oline and never put it back together.

How did he dismantle it??

Much of the same line has been here the entire time this regime has been.

infact we had the exact same line for pretty much 4 years in a row which is difficult and the guys that we did let go had in house replacements.

And the line was blocking pretty well early when they were healthy.... the only time the line has been really bad has been 2013 when we had 2 second year players who were not ready for the spots they had to take .

If we can just keep guys healthy we have the makings of a pretty good Oline..... the problem is for 2 years now we are reshuffling them on almost a weekly basis.

The line started to tank with the loss of Dahl, then after McClure and Clabo left and Baker always injured it went to complete doodoo. You can literally look at a calender and see the before and after. Once the Oline was dismantled we sucked.

Ehh Turner was still 3rd in league in rushing in 2011 after Dahl...and once we benched Baker the protection was alot better.

2012 we still were one of the better teams in the league in turns of running efficiency ( we scored like 11 tds on the ground that put us in the top 5) and we were one of the better pass blocking teams in the league as a whole

2013 was a train wreck with all of the injuries and the struggles of Konz and Holmes

And this year.... even when we were down to back ups at several spots the line as a whole has played OK ... we had a couple really rough halves we also have played some very good halves of football upfront too....That boils back down to coaching.

If we can get Matthews and Blalock healthy I think we will be OK.

Moving forward , Holmes showed a great deal of improvement year 1 under Tice,,,, as did Konz but not as much... Hawley also has showed big improvement from his last starting gig in 2011 to this year before he got hurt.

The Oline problems stem IMO from coaching...... With Tice there has been noticeable improvement with pretty much everyone from the 2013 line.

Mckay built a good OL?

Mckay drafted 1 OL in the first 3 rounds his entire tenure here. (Justin Blalock)

He inherited C Mcclure, OT Weiner, OG Forney,

Revisionist history is a funny thing.

To be fair, a lot of that was Alex Gibbs and his insistence on grooming late rounders into cut blocking thugs.

I remember being on board with it early because of the initial results. Then it got old fast. They never gave Vick anything to work with. Ryan has no oline. Vick had no oline and no weapons. I'm glad that regime is out of here. Alex Gibbs and Greg Knapp can pound sand.
