Default The OL

I'm beginning to believe that this year's OL will be the best in the last nine year's. I honestly believe they are going to hold their own and progress each game.

We will find out what they are made of soon enough, but I say they dominate the line of scrimmage Thursday night and carry the mo into the jawja game.

Default Re: The OL

I'm not as optimistic as you all, but I'm praying that you guys are right.
I'm just tired of the talk of good Line play, but seeing less than good
on the field. ...... SHOW ME a good line. I'll reserve judgment on the 2013
version of Elliott's squad until after the UGA game.

Hoping for the best, expecting more of the same.

I know they're one of the biggest lines we've had. I've heard from folks that share your opinion as well as some that worry about the OL (maybe default for us). I don't really know....I sort of agree with both. We certainly have the talent to be stout but my concerns come from depth, or lack there of. The big uglies tend to get dinged up down in the trenches...and that's A LOT of weight being supported by those knees or falling down on ankles. Hopefully the OL gets tired of hearing people worry about them every year and shows out this season.

It's time for the OL to step up and I think they will.

It's all about playing to our strengths and being able to avoid our short comings.

Yea I think so too. I am confident in the starting 5. Things get iffy after that. No proven depth at all with Matulis likely redshirting and Gibson out. Scary if we have more injuries.

I'll believe in the Oline when I see it. I mean, awesome that I'm hearing great things about them, but I really want to see it on the field. I want to see shaw have less than 5 scramble-runs in a game against a non-conf opponent because the Oline was protecting him that long.

I'm definitely in the cautiously optimistic camp. I think there's certainly a chance, but I'm taking a wait and see approach before I believe it.

this is about how I feel. I've become wary of preseason praise for our OL. but as a fan, I am still hopeful that this year is the year it is warrented.

I'm with Spurt on this one. I worry more about this than anything. We got pushed around by quite a few teams on the OL last year. If we got above average play here we go to atl.
