This is similar to the Gino at center thread. KO finally got a shot at LG after playing RT all season. how did he look and may his future be there going forward?

I think his future is at RT because he has the skills. But we sort of fed him to the Lions. No doubt he'll play better at guard but he has the potential to be on the outside.

Pretty good debut for the young star!! Look forward to seeing how he'll do against Denver's hungry defense.

After this game, I am for keeping KO at right tackle and moving Oher to LG. I'm so disappointed with Oher it's not even funny.

whatever it takes to get him to play well. he stood out easily since all 4 other guys played a good game. he singlehandedly made joe work for everything.

Might get slammed for this but whatever,

I really liked the O-Line today. They were able to hold back Mathis and Freeney, the RB's were able to break through for some good yardage, and Flacco was able to send some balls deep.

For at least the rest of the playoffs, I would LOVE if the line stayed this way

Slammed, you might get positive records!
I agree

its the opposite man, it was pretty good. us ravens fans are just frustrated with the individual play of Michael Oher.

Oher is built more like a guard. I'm not sure why they have never tried this.
But this line was better without Bobbie Williams. That guy has been terrible... Worse then Oher.

Nothing to slam you about. O-Line played pretty well. McKinnie was a nice surprise KO playing his natural guard showed why he has the potential to be a great RT. Oher was still the liability like always.

I disagree. He would make an excellent RT but Oher is a better RT than Osemele and Osemele is a better LG than Oher. Osemele will probably be a better RT than Oher in a year or two but it wouldn't be worth it in the short run or the long run.
If we keep Osemele at LG, Oher at RT, and get a franchise LT we will have 3 positions improved while switching Oher and Osemele would downgrade two positions for a year or two just to get a slightly better RT.

I just don't know how we are going to get a franchise LT in the foreseeable future. Looks like we'll be picking in the back of the draft again. We aren't going to throw money at a free agent tackle. So with that. Oher is still the best LT we have for the foreseeable future (I don't feel happy about saying that).

I love K.O. he reminds me of Yanda because he can play both Guard positions and RT.

I think I like him best at RT. If we could just find a LT it would solve alot of problems on our oline.

Also with the exception of Oher, our o-line played alright I guess. All I know is it seemed Oher got beat every. single. play.

Osemele is better at guard, it'd be easiest to find an RT and move Osemele inside.

Flock, I could not see most of the game because of my employment. If KO started at LG, who started at RT?
...a little help please.
