Well the problem is around the way the oline is built as of now. Although Staley and Heitmann have played well, they are solid technique blockers, with just enough strength to get them by.
While Rachal and Baas are supposed to be the "maulers" of the oline; on running plays they should be taking the guy out in front of them, and they are not doing that. The problem is that these guys are built for that, that's their play style, our oline is scheme is designed around their strength's. We run few zone, pull a guard type blocking plays, these guys aren't as athletic as Smiley was, or other "finesse" guards around the league.
And as far as Snyder/Pashos goes, draft/FA.
IMO, keep those 4 guys together, there's good potential there, they just need to practice more and study film, they have the talent...
