Its something that has been talked about recently, and I think it would be interesting to get most peoples thoughts before we have a slew of articles on the subject. How would you fix our offensive line?
I think the biggest areas that we could conceivably replace people on our line are the draft, free agency next year, and trade targets. Certainly areas that are available more during the off-season. Before you can do that, we need to come up with what is wrong with our line currently. And this is where I think the biggest discussion will occur, because we've wanted to believe for a very long time, that our offensive line is talented.
Two of the biggest investments in the team are probably Donald Penn and Davin Joseph. Jeff Faine and Jeremy Trueblood are experienced linemen who are often said to know what they are doing. However, can you really say that all of the lines problems stem from a poor left guard?
So who do you think is the problem Tampa Bay? Is it that Trueblood constantly gets penalties(almost one a game it seems) or is it the poor play of Vincent/Zuttah? Or perhaps Faine is just undersized for the type of line that we want to run. OR possibly, even more horrifying, maybe Davin Joseph and Penn arn't all their cracked up to be!
I really want to hear other peoples opinions because our offensive line seems to be a major weakness so far, one that we need to improve before we can take the next step.
