Let's Talk Levi Jones and Offensive Line
 
I think it's safe to say Levi had a solid game yesterday if not great. I noticed during yesterday's post game interview with Kelli Johnson (Comcast) she asked him about the sack he gave up against Elvis Dumervil . Levi gave her this incredulous look and said, I'm not sure I gave that sack up; I'm not sure that was on me. We'll have to see what the game tape shows tomorrow.

I liked that response - that he wasn't willing to concede a sack during an interview after a most satisfying win. But I have to wonder if Jones does pan out for the remainder of the season, and has another good outing vs. the Cowboys, how will that affect our draft needs along the offensive line in the future?

However this all works out, it was great to see Betts and Rock pound the ball old school style. Part of me wonders if we string together a few more hundred yard performances, should we or will we stick with this unit or draft an o-lineman in the first round like we probably should.

During yesterday's broadcast CBS flashed an interesting statistic that the Washington Redskins were the only team in the NFL that hadn't drafted an offensive lineman in the first two rounds since 2001.

Personally, I still think we need a first round tackle in next year's draft. Even if Levi pans out, SH is simply a below average starter with razor thin depth on the entire line as a whole. I think the only way we don't draft a first round OL is if Samuels decides not to retire and even then it would have to be addressed multiple times in the early rounds.

But don't forget that Dumervil leads the NFL in sacks.

Poor teams? Denver has played the Patriots, San Diego, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Cincinnati...the only bad teams the Broncos has played has been the Browns and the Raiders (and now us I guess).

[quote=CultBrennan59;626501]Even if Levi does good against the cowboys, we still need OL as our number 1 priority. but I'd definitley bring him back next year as a backup or starter at RT.[/quote]

Agreed...I really don't see why we can't do what the Ravens are doing with Michael Oher...they are starting him at RT, but when Gaither went down, he moved to LT. Levi seems to have a few years left in the tank, and we can use those years to groom a franchise LT.

I was watching Levi in particular on Sunday, and I agree, he did do a solid job. That being said, I'm no expert on breaking down game tape, and I'd be interested to know what affected our line the most. Maybe Rinehart is actually a decent guard, or maybe heyer is actually playable on the right side, or maybe its the addition of levi. And I know this has been discussed to death on espn980, but I wonder if betts is really a better runner behind our line than portis right now... although that wouldn't really affect the better pass pro.

I would say Denver's smallish defensive front had something to do with our success on Sunday. The knock on them all season is they can be pushed around. Let's see how we do against a much more physical defensive front in Dallas.

Yeah, I think the true test will be Dallas. Especially playing on the road. In fact, Dallas' front seven ain't too shaby. So I expect a lot of blitzes and different looks to take advantage of our lack of experience.

This past weekend was the best our Oline has played all year. We need to keep these guys in at starters. Levi Jones, nice first game but no way in hell im gonna say lets sign him keep him next year. Lets let the season play out and see what happens b4 we start raving about one player after 1 game.
