I noticed Lichtensteiger was playing a lot, but did not see an injury to an O-lineman.

Question answered.

This is great coaching. Dock is solid as a rock but I have always felt like he should be more dominant in the running game, especially in short yardage.

Wow. Thought, design and discipline in using O-linemen. Who'd a thunk it!

Captain Slip and Slide never did although he did catch Cooley's ankle surgery.

On the one hand, yeah I get it. On the other, don't you want some consistency on your line so that unit can learn to play with each other and gel as one complete unit?

Lichtensteiger should come in to replace Rabach instead of Dockery... as long as the snaps don't get screwed up because of a change in center

When I saw Heyer in the game I thought 'oh no' is brown hurt? I was waiting for some word from the booth.

I've never heard of any pro team rotating o linemen. Most of those guys usually play the whole game even if it's a blowout.

Hey if it keeps them fresh and it works keep it up. I think it makes them hungry to get out there. I agree with Steveo, Rabach may be a great Center mentally, but Ratcliff was just wearing him out. Thank goodness for Portis, busting him up everytime he came through.

The more I think about it, you have a good point mainly because of what we are dealing with on the left side (a rookie tackle). If it were Samuels that would be one thing but it probably makes sense for Trent to know the tendencies of the guy next to him.

When your blocking scheme is predicated on the O-Line running to the second and third levels, it probably helps to have fresh legs spell the starters every now and then. That's my two cents.

One would think that with a unit thus far struggling to consistently run the ball, playing musical chairs with the o/line is not a good formula to bring about the cohesion needed. Now, if this is being done just to keep guys fresh and only for short periods then I can understand.

Sherm Lewis was the best offensive coach we had last year.

I hope this is just a first game situation. I dunno if I want a musical chair o-line.
