I don't think so, people forget that Faneca wasn't pass blocking all that well at the end of last season. I would bet that Faneca would have been beat ngata a couple of times, and when we ran to Slausons side we usually gained yards.
As far as running the ball we didn't run it (have the ball) enough to tell LT had more yards than anyone, smith, hell I think sanchez had as much as Green. The big issue is Shotty and/or Sanchez played scared all game.
[QUOTE=jetsfan1983;3731709]LT is far better than Thomas Jones. I think that much is clear.
Slauson did a very good job with the exception of the one play.[/QUOTE]
I wholeheartedly agree. LT is such a breath of fresh air, I don't see how anybody would try to argue otherwise. Slauson did another great job in the run game. He was moving everybody off the line including ngata. He pulled and put Ray Lewis on the turf. Ngata abused him once in pass pro which is a bit disturbing because of how easily he tossed him. The good thing is I think Slauson is mobile enough and is defnitely strong enough. He needs to keep improving on his technique and try to gain more consistency. He seems to overextend at times and gets off balance. There is plenty of work to be done by everybody on offense and not one or even two people.
