Which way is the KC offense headed?
I vote for power (and meanness).
Haley's known for high-powered offense, but is this a line that's suddenly going to sustain a solid pocket for 20 seconds (*wink*), or one that creates passing opportunities for its QB by forcing defenses to honor the run (and bite on the play-fake) and/or exploiting QB mobility by rolling-out and bootlegging?
If Colin Brown is any indication, and with Damion McIntosh on the squad, they can punch people in the mouth, but there isn't going to be a lot of sustained 1-on-1 blocking in space from the RT position. And there's not going to be a WHOLE lot of 2nd-level blocking, either. First things first. I think the short-term objective is to at LEAST blow the other guys off the line with the initial push.
I think anything our QBs get is going to be based on the o-line's ability to get positive yards no matter what. Give LJ that much, and he could easily become a dominant player, again. And if he rediscovers some dominance, the job just got that much easier for our QBs, even if they're not the best drop-back and pass-protect unit. I see more drive-blocking on passing downs...
Somebody who knows something about football can school me, now. Thx in advance.
