I'll be honest, I was not too impressed with our OL last night. Even Alex was a bit pissed with some of the screwups.
1. Botched shotgun snap by Goodwin.
2. Blocking screwup which frees up Suh for a clean shot at Smith.
3. A play later, Alex has microsecond to get rid of it before Suh is in his breadbasket.
4. 3rd and 1, and the line gets zero push and Gore gets stopped short.
the botched shotgun is rare for a center that experienced. It wasnt a negative play so we can move past this mistake a little easier.
It was either that one or the one where Iupati was blocking another guy who went scot free to Alex who avoided him but got cleaned up by Suh. Occasionally maybe three snaps out of the total 60+ snaps did our linemen get beat. In the pass game Alex generally had ample time to throw.
on the 3rd and short we got a huge push i thought, tukuafu made a great block ( This guy has serious skill) but the lions DL made a great play diving sideways to get Gore. Things like that do happen. Overall against a line that was so so hyped up i thought they did brilliant and made them look ordinary.
So say were ranking Dlines...where would you rank them in terms of pass rush?
4. Ravens when fully healthy
5.Steelers when fully healthy
