    Weapons Shmeapons

    IMHO, the most glaring problem with Geno and this offense is the O Line. They flat out stunk all season long, almost getting our rookie QB killed on many occasions because they cannot pass block &/or recognize & / or prevent an opponent blitz. Part of the blitz pick up problem is on our TE's/RB's as well, but the majority of this falls on the O line (2 tackles, Center and Guards). Amazing that when Rex blitzes the opponents offense, they always block us out and we never get a sniff of the opposing QB. This is not the case with our O line, it is a jail break every time leading to a crushing sack, possible QB injury, definite loss of yardage, holding penalties, and most times, is a drive killer. It would not matter if we had Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, and Vernon Davis as our WR's and TE, and Peyton Manning at QB, if we cannot block anyone, then the QB has no shot at completing a pass. That is what I saw all season here, the O line was putrid at pass blocking. They were marginally ok at run blocking, but lord almighty, the entire NFL knows that if you blitz this O line, you will crush them and their QB. There are also way to many pre snap penalties on this o line. False start after false start. I can understand this in week 1 or 2, but by week 15, these kinks should have been worked out long ago. How many holding penalties were called on our guards this season? Ridiculous. The O Line drives the bus IMO, bad O line = bad team.

    Football fundamental number one, if you can't block, you can't move the ball, it is that simple. So our priority in the offseason should be to keep our QB, whoever he is, standing upright. After we accomplish this seemingly impossible feat, then we can add ancillary pieces such as good WR's, TE's, and RB's.

    That is the biggest problem I see with this team.

    So you're saying that the skill positions aren't an issue?

    You're totally fine with JAGS like Cumberland, Nelson, Winslow, and Hill as our go-to guys?

    LOL...okay.

    WR's cant get open and Geno holds onto the ball too long. Not saying the Oline is great but with better WR and QB play they would look better

    When Geno has had time he has shown promise. The line has played poorly, but Geno needs to learn how to handle the pressure better

    And when they do get open they cannot hang onto the ball. How many balls were dropped yesterday that should have been caught. NFL - 2 hands on the ball = catch.

    You can put pretty much any QB's name in that sentence. If you give a QB enough time to hang out and look for an open receiver it's pretty easy to make a good pass.

    The OL is not that bad. An experienced QB can recognize a blitz and knows he has to get the ball out quicker. Geno does not. Also, Geno's pocket presence is terrible, so he's sliding around all over the place in all the wrong directions. The OL's job in pass protection is not to stand the defender up, but rather to push him aside and lead him back around the QB to open up sight lanes for the QB and give him time. The QB then steps up as the defenders go by. Geno starts jumping around pretty much from the get go and always ends up in the wrong spot.

    Brian Winters is a problem.
    But don't let that disguise the fact that our skill players are the worst in the NFL and the whole group needs to be overhauled.
