Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes

Will Montgomery, C, Washington. A standout all season for Washington, he's the No. 2 rated center in the game this year, according to ProFootballFocus.com rankings. Montgomery kept Robert Griffin III clean all game Thursday and was a force in the running game as well. The Redskins did a very smart thing in the offseason when they knew they were in cap jail but also knew they wanted to keep this promising 29-year-old center as the centerpiece for a rebuilt line to protect RGIII. They signed him to an extension through the 2016 season, guaranteeing only $2.5 million of his deal; Montgomery will earn $12 million over the next four years, a good deal for a center who earned it, and a good deal for the team paying him.

Monty sure has turned out to be pretty damn solid. I used to think he was a good stopgap center, but better suited as a backup. Now it's clear he's a legit starter in this league.

This.

Draft another mid round tackle to compete with Tom Compton and Polumbus to compete for the RT spot. And this O-line is set for awhile. Kory L will be competing for his spot with McRibeus and Gettis next year. O-Line plan has come together extremely well.

Gee, if you read the quote by King sounds like in this case both the player and the FO had win-win situations. I guess it is not all gloom and doom at Redskin's Park after all. As some seem to believe here.

So whatever we lack in offensive linemen or players who can make others miss in open space, those deficiencies sure are not showing up in the stat sheet. The line has had poor moments, but the offense overall has been performing extremely well. Griffin is obviously the biggest reason for that.

So unless you think Robert Griffin will get worse, aside from RT I don't know why you'd do anything but invest heavily in defense.
you miss the point entirely. this thread refers to our offensive linemen being heroes. Theyre not. theyre passable at best. we have the 7th rated offense in spite of a mediocre offensive line, not because of it. This thread is about the o-line and the o-line is not very good. Still, if we're ranking offseason needs, its hard to argue that the secondary isnt the top concern. O-line would be second. That said, our o-line has been remarkably healthy this year. I shudder to think how bad things would get if any of the starters were gone for any length of time. We cannot ignore the line in the offseason.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes

How exactly are we planning to add depth to the offensive line?

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes

The OL is far better than we expected. We have a few young guys for depth who are still developing. The OL chicken littles need to chill.

So typical of the short-term memory fanbase. We (finally) have a season where we get really, really lucky and don't suffer multiple injuries across the oline, which still sucks at pass protection, and all history is forgotten. The only indication of our depth is that it's terrible e.g. Polumbus. The interior depth could be better, but who really knows? Not that we have significant resources to add OL talent, but a starting caliber RT is critical. And then the backups gotta get coached up. It's not a dire situation (although RG3's body may say otherwise some days), but to ignore how lucky we've been this season injury wise and the poor pass-protection is just

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes

i saw leribeus suited up on turkey day. he's suited up 3 times now, i believe. hurt stepped in last year.

like matty said, the young guys are coming along. the line has done a great job this year, all things considered. it's true, nobody wants polumbus starting, but come on, it's not that bad.

I see you get the point I was making. Others remain ignorant

I checked Mike Shanahan's draft record. The highest offensive lineman he's taken in the draft was Trent Williams. When Shanahan was in Denver, most of his offensive linemen were 3rd-7th round selections. If the Redskins find value at RT, I'd like the RT to be taken in the earlier rounds of the draft much like with Jon Jansen. RT has been a concern since Jansen was released in 2008.

Is there not going to be a draft or free agency next year?

Taken 2 was far better than i expected... but it still wasnt very good.

Our OL has done a decent job, but not heroic. RGIII is hit or knocked down on almost every single drop back. He is our franchise quarterback, andits not like hes a stocky guy like newton or rothlisberger. He's young now, but eventually, his body wont be able to recover as quickly and those hits will start taking a toll.

we've invested a fortune (in draft picks) in RGIII. we need to protect that investment by doing everything we can to upgrade the line so that he doesnt get knocked down so much when he's in the pocket. When your ranking team needs in the offseason, i cant imagine how improving the Oline is not 2nd... preferably guys like polumbus and Chester can become our backups/depth and we have better starters in front of them.
