We are avg. 1 off / Td per game our last 10 games ?
Yeah and Rothlisberger was the most sacked QB in the NFL. OK, now the constant is poor QB play. Although, tonight JC threw two nice passes in the red zone that should have been caught.

Rinehart will step in next week and play great. He showed that he is capable of that in the preseason. If that does not work, we will put in Batiste. If that fails, there are plenty of guys out there that could fill in.
TO I feel you Bro. and I honestly hope you're right about all these guys as you seem to have so much faith in them. However, I feel with a reasonable amount of assurance that at the conclusion of this season the O-line will be a major topic of conversation on this forum. I stated previously, we will all be once again clamoring for the FO to upgrade the OL.

Re: Offensive line depth (R. Thomas' injury)

I do have faith in Buges to make things work. Also, I think Rinehart will be fine as a guard--he's not a tackle and we've tried to move him out there.

We'll see.

I think that at the end of the year we will be saying how good our Oline is, because it will only get better as they gel together. This year we have a young guy to throw in there. Normally, it is a over the hill vet that we put in there. That is an improvement right there. Rinehart is an unknown, maybe a star in the making. This is what the experts have said we didn't have in the past. The young unknown to put in there when a vet goes down. In fact I will say that Randy going down is a blessing in disguise. He has been injured every year he has been here, and we have had to fill his spot or let him play sub par football. I love the guy but he has never been reliable.

Re: Offensive line depth (R. Thomas' injury)

I'm actually looking forward to seeing Rinehart get his opportunity. Montgomery certainly looked shaky. Has Mike Williams ever played guard, or is he exclusively a tackle?

I think he played some guard in the NFL with Buffalo, but I would say he is a tackle right now.

Re: Offensive line depth (R. Thomas' injury)

So what are our options out there in free agency to bolster the line?

I'm pretty sure that Pete Kendall is available. That's who I'd be calling since he knows the offense.

Re: Offensive line depth (R. Thomas' injury)

Okay, so -- Week 2, our first starter on the O-line goes down.

Can't say we couldn't see this coming. Cerrato's been whistling past the graveyard for years with the O-line. I bet they figured Thomas would last another ten years or so.

Though I think we probably have some good choices with Montgomery and Rinehart...what better way to develop your young players than having them actually play.

I must say I have the maximum admiration for your optimism. There's no fault in that.

Well don't people bitch about how we don't build through the draft, develop players, and always go with old players at the line? Well, this is an opportunity change our ways and develop a player we drafted by letting him play with the other starters and add youth to our o-line.

True -- they'll have to play at some point. I think we'd all prefer to have somebody beating out Randy Thomas on a performance basis though.

Agreed..though this may be a good way to part ways with a guy who's losing his abilities due to age.
