Haven't read it yet but please tell me he's talking about the O-Line.

Edit: Crap, I knew the D-line was going to be good I just wanted to hear something about the O-line.

Re: Haynesworth Likes Line's Potential

If Dixon keeps showing up in games, either Montgomery or Golston is gone. My bet would be Montgomery.

Re: Haynesworth Likes Line's Potential

i like dixon alot, i think he has more potential then monty at this point, i'd hate to see him go but his performance has really just hit a stalling point, and dixon is putting the effort forth and its begining to show.

Re: Haynesworth Likes Line's Potential

I know we had some offensive line discussion going around here somewhere, but this fits with the defensive line too, so I'm going to put it here rather than starting a new thread.

One of the big questions early on in camp related to the offensive line's horrendous performance. Then they seemed to hold up reasonably well against the Ravens, albeit without Terrell Suggs.

Did the line get better as camp went along, or is our defensive line really that beastly? I think it might be the latter. Griffin as your 2nd DT is downright disruptive - he's going underappreciated this camp due to Haynesworth's arrival. And I saw tape of the Ravens game, Daniels looks gigantic.

Andre Carter and Orakpo will have pass rushing opportunities playing with these guys, because these 3 man-beasts (Haynesworth, Griffin, Daniels) are going to be so tough against the run that opposing offenses should face numerous 2nd & 3rd and longs.

I'm still very concerned about right tackle. And we ran really poorly against the Ravens. But the starting line held up in pass protection pretty well against the Ravens. I still need to see more, but the question is starting to get answered for me: I think the early struggles in camp had more to do with our D line being freakish than it did with our offensive line being horrible.

Re: Haynesworth Likes Line's Potential

If our DLine is anything special, than we should see Big Ben on his Back throughout the first quarter. There line was pretty soft(hehe) last year. And, vice versa, their first quarter D should again test our OLine, and I hope they bring Palamaolu ALOT.

I dunno if I hope that, because it could mean a Campbell injury. But I get what you're saying, it would be nice to see them pass a significant test.

I agree with your assessment of Griffin. To me, Griffin has always been one of the Santana Moss of the defense in that he can beat almost any 1 on 1 but, w/out help, can be neutralized. Now, with Haynesworth next to him, Griffin is going to be nasty inside.

Maybe he has slowed down, but - if he can play up to his past level and avoid injuries (granted, both are big "ifs"), Griffin could appear unstoppable. In my mind, Griffin/Haynesworth could end up being the best DT combo we have ever had.

As for the O-Line's struggles in camp, I hope you are right on both counts.

Re: Haynesworth Likes Line's Potential

It seems like we have a good surplus of D-Linemen. Is there a chance that we could trade Montgomery or Golston for some o-line depth? I couldn't imagine cutting either of those two guys. They're too good to give up for nothing.

That's my kind of thinking.

Easier said than done. Monty and Golston are solid, but wouldn't bring much in return at the RT spot (where we need the help most).
