Did the O-Line do enough down the stretch to keep Pat Meyer employed?

    Did a great job and it will keep improving. At least we have one coach doing a good job. Let’s hope for more next season.

    People think that because they went to a game plan that protected the quarterback and he was still forced to scramble away from the rush right at the snap way too often. The run blocking wasn't there early in the season, but it was there after the bye. Looking at the full-season numbers doesn't accurately portray what happened by the end of the season.

    Coaches can only protect a QB so much. You can bring the TE in and leave the RB in to block, but over the course of a game and a season, the stats are what they are. Pickett had more time than most people realize. Hell, against Oakland's pass rush, he was only hurried 7 times all game. The pass blocking was quite a bit better than average

    The run blocking did get better as the season went on, but Harris was still not averaging good per carry numbers and was getting contacted quite early
