If there's anything to worry about on the O-line, it's going to be finding a quality center and maybe looking for someone to take over Dockery's spot. I'm not really sold on Derrick and I really expected him to be getting it this year, but he still doesn't seem to. I think the only player on the line to be whistled down more than Dockery was Ray Brown.

yeah, I see a healthy Jansen giving a nice impact to the running game. We can stretch to the right, or we can pull thomas and use Samuels on the other side!

I don't recall hearing his name very often if at all the past two years. When we were having all the false start problems last year Thomas never flinched.

Maybe we did overpay for him a bit, but that's the name of the game when you're stealing away FA's. Thomas has easily been our most consistent lineman the last two years. He's the least of our worries up front.
I'll concur with you that outside of Jansen, Thomas is the last of our worries up front, but he's still part of a line that generates around 3.8 yards per rush, and a player of a team that's 5-11 and 6-10 the last two seasons. We should expect much more.

I'm just saying he's far from being a bust, he's not even close.

Betts had a great game vs. the Vikings with 118 yards and a TD, but with the way the O-line was playing (finally), I think a healthy Portis would have gotten close to 200 yards...or the two off them combined would have.
It was enough though, and it is nice to see that we have two good backs at the very least. Feeling good about 2005!

Oh, and as for the line, IMO, all they need is more time with Bugel....along with maybe an upgrade at center, and a little better depth just in case something like Jansen's injury happens again.
