Hire Jesse Sopolu as our OL coach!
You can only do so much during the season. I expect big changes to happen in the off season though.

But now? I can only think of small not-good-enough solutions:

-Shuffle in some OL players from the bench, practice squad, etc
-Call plays to mask OL woes. (draws, screens, quick passes)
-Leave Gore/VD in to block but that's dumb to keep our playmakers in to to that

Our problem with OL is that we don't have the players to become a power running team. We need more beef and skills in the OL.
Where is the fire Scot for not getting better linemen in the draft, free agency or trade option.

I did post that thread earlier in the week but I agree that should be an option as well. Only a few players have developed well but the rest are sub par.

Our guys can pass block well one on one but have big issues with scheme, and our run blocking lacks explosiveness, this combined with poor pad level make it had to run the ball, I put all of that on coaching!
Start all over. Players coaches and scheme.

Actually what we need is to get away from that ridiculous notion that you shove the ball down someones throat. Can't be done in the NFL even i know that. Lets put the ball in the air on first down and see what happens. The line will be fine if given the chance to succeed.

It can be done. The Giants are using that style very effectively.
