Only excuse I heard on the call-in show and postgame show tonight was KO was injured, and they're starting with a new center (and that showed as he got beat badly a couple of times). A few false starts but no holding calls that I remember. That being said, I hope they get a lot better than this before next week. A LOT BETTER! Can't have free rushers coming up the middle, or Steele under pressure in no time against a 3-man rush.
I understand the suspension deal plus KO being dinged up but after hearing all spring and camp that this would be one of the best position groups and be very deep I couldn't believe how bad they looked. We couldn't dig in and get a yard against UN freakin I...embarrassing.
1. Zero push at point of contact
2. Poor communication, allowed a 3 man rush to disrupt the QB
3. Interior lineman could not hold blocks in either run or passing situations.
4. Outside lineman allowed speed rushers to break the pocket.
CPR said before the season this was the best O-line they've had. I understand that KO was out most of the game and our road paver Hicks didn't play. Still doesn't excuse the horrible play by the rest of them.
While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
