But I'll also say that Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers didn't develop behind bad OLs. They benefitted from good line play in their developmental years. And the tried and true way to develop a QB is go allow him good line play in his developmental years.

One sous think people would have learned from the Patrick Ramsey experiment.

We were 30th in the league in rushing yards.
I think it is great that you are optimistic, but our O-line sucks.
That you mentioned Heyer is scary. You can not polish a turd. :cheeky-sm
Seriously though, we need new young linemen.

I agree with you but I also wonder how much of the OL problems were from the players learning the zone blocking scheme and trying to utilize it for the first time. Plus the fact the team only had a couple of zone blocking style OL.

In any event the team needs more zone blocking style OL and having been in the scheme for a second year I'm hoping the OL plays better.

Seems like they were able to keep the best front 4 at bay on this play

Re: Would you be ok with...

the fact that the OL was able to put together a few good games gives me hope that they'll be better next year. I don't think we're as doomed as some think (with some additions of course).
