If you ask any football coach in the nation what is the most important part of your football team they will say it is a tie, no the tie is not btw the rb and qb as most football fans may think, it is the o-line and d-line. The line is the building block of every team on both sides of the ball. If you look at every super bowl team from the Packers to the Ravens there is 1 constant...very good o-lines and d-lines. This season we have had horrible luck w/both of these lines. More than just the bad luck, I think Dave ignored glaring holes on both of these lines in the off season. He know that Spriggs, Smith, Mixon, and Bromell were all unproven, and have failed to win jobs when they had the oppurtunity the previous season. Sure it would be nice to have the luxury of having a great 3rd cb, but that is a luxury, having a good lt is a necessity. In all honestly we are very lucky to be where we are right now at 9-4, but if we want to ever take the next step we have tend to our swiss cheese o-line, and our lack luster d-line. If we can shore up those to postions you can start Jay Feidler's mom for all I care.
