Osemele at LG

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

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.

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.

I have no doubt that Harbs had a one-on-one with McKinnie. Found out where his head is, and knew that McKinnie had the motivation to play strong.

I think that Osemele could play RT in the future, but just because he could doesn't mean he should. He would realistically be a good RT but I think he could be a pro-bowl LG. Obviously we need to fix our tackle situation. For now, this lineup is best. I wanted it all along, but maybe Harbaugh was saving it for the playoffs? I don't know.

If we get a quality LT in free agency (highly unlikely) or a guy in the draft like Eric fisher then we could move Oher to RT. Oher was up against one of the best rushers in football but it's still no excuse. I'd keep Oher at RT where he isn't terrible.

I'm not sure how I feel about the oline right now.

Freeney and Mathis are not the guys they once were, so I'm less impressed by McKinnie and Oher. They both had average, or below average years. Next week will tell if our tackles are as good as they looked today. I think Indy's bad defense may have made our oline look better, but only time will tell.

KO looked great at LG. Really great.

Oh yeah I'm so intimidated by Freeney's whopping 5 sacks and 12 tackles... Seriously. What the hell kind of linebacker posts [u][b]12[/b][/u] tackles in 14 games started? Mathis was a little better, with 33 tackles and 8 sacks.

Unless those were all ceremonial starts and he didn't play many snaps (which I highly doubt), that is abysmal. He must have been pinning his ears back and going after the QB on literally every play.

Well, that's exactly what he did today, so I think that's probably it!

He looked pretty terrible to me. The best thing to do with Oher is cut ties with him when his contract is over.
