Now that we are heading into the home stretch, are you satisfied with the O line? What would you change? Why would yo u change it? Do you think the best 5 Olineman are starting?

oher has impressed me a bit. not much will help the line play this year(other than putting harewood back in) but drafting another tackle so KO can play guard would help.

We could not subscribe to NFL ticket this year, so I miss a lot of games on tv. Did Reid start and finish at LG? ...assuming he started.
Center should be a priority in the draft if Gratkowski isn't what we thought he would be.

yes i think he played the whole game.

as far as center, Birk is retiring at a bad time because the draft class sucks and i don't know who we could pick up....

They're OK. I'd be happier though if they would all execute at the same time for more plays during a game.

No. I don't like McKinnie, and Yanda is at RG.

Did we trade Yanda in this scenario? Our best olineman...

I'm hoping Gino is the answer at Center for the future, I'm glad he had at least one year under Birk. I also prefer Harewood at LG over Reid. That's the only thing I would personally change.

I think that Joe would like that too

I actually like the OL we have and would not change a thing. Reid has been good at LG, Osemele has been a surprise at RT, Oher finally is getting confortable at LT, Birk and Yanda are as always.

We have great depth this year too. I am really excited to see Gradkowski in the next couple of years, from preseason, his exceptional block on the fake fg and his work ethic/smarts he looks like a solid starter

Reid is slower,less athletic, and less aggressive than Osemele is. What makes you think he'd be better at RT than Osemele?

I feel that Harewood has been the best performer at LG, not sure why we dropped him. The rest of the line has been OK, though KO has been getting beat more the past couple of weeks.
