Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
This thread needed to be started. Hopefully it will be an ongoing discussion for the remainder of the season.

The Redskins offensive line have definitely been the unsung heroes of the 2012 season. Obviously, and for good reason, much of the praise has been heaped upon RGIII and Afred Morris. Our very own dynamic duo. But you can't separate their individual efforts from the collective play of this blue collar unit.

Far and away above any expectations i had. Like I said during the game day thread, they are opening holes for Almo that Moses would be proud of. They are a piece or two from being a dominant line, but they have kept RG-3 uprite for the most part when he drops back and that was a big fear of mine going into the season. Hail the o-line for sure.

Let's also not forget the WR's awesome job by all of them.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
Agreed. Don't remember seeing WRs holding off DBs like that for a looooong time.

Not only that, our WRs making INSANE catches is a real sight for sore eyes. It always seemed like other teams WRs would be making backflip, one-handed grabs and today it was our turn to get in on the act.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
Yup. Seems the other teams WR are always making the acrobatic catches except for our ours.

And what the fukc is up with Santana Moss? Like, normal 'Skins protocol is to suck and get cut the following year. He's actually contributing like he wants a Super Bowl and shit. #weird #ballin

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
LOL, seriously nice to see. Santana is ballin' hard even with limited opportunities.

Moss has 7 TDs

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
Our line has been somewhere between just ok and brilliant at times on the whole.

It is a very solid to almost great run blocking line but a poor to below average pass blocking group. Bob makes their stats look better than they should be and they aren't that good anyways.

I said the O-Line was strong this year. It's not built for power by any means, but this could be the best O-Line in Shanny's career he's had for his system.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
The offensive line played beautifully. Of course I didn't like them allowing 4 sacks on Griffin III, but they pass protected well and blocked well for Morris. They did their job.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
I have a new erespect for Kory Lictensteiger. To come back after that terrible knee injury a year ago and to be able to play at the level he's played at speaks volumes. It would be excellent if Lichtensteiger was selected for the pro bowl.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes
the OL gave up 4 sacks, a bunch of hits, and if griffin weren't there to bail them out, we'd be dogging them pretty hard right now.

I don't think these guys are hall of famers. though they definitely are good enough (except for polumbus, who'd i'd replace asap).

[QUOTE=CultBrennan59;967184]OL was supposed to be our weakness or one of the main weaknesses this year.

They're good enough to win a super bowl with them.

[B]People bash Polumbus, and yes, he is the worst of our OLineman, but he's still better than most the RTs in the NFL, and the Giants, Eagles, Steelers, Cowboys, would love to have him right now...[/b][/QUOTE]

I think you may be over stating that just a bit.
