When Joe retires, I hope they keep him in the building to mentor the young kids and even maybe an OL assistant.
Totally. We go as the OL goes and so far, no doubt, they've been collectively really good. Protect the face.

For outside perspective, it looks like we might have some competition for OL next draft. LOL

At least 65% of the league is in a worse position then we are at OL.

Pass protection always has a lot to do with the QB. The best OL in football can be made to look like doodoo by a QB with poor decisiveness or awareness. You have QBs like Brady that get rid of the ball fast and seem to always move away from pressure and then you have the CJ Beathards that are oblivious to their surroundings and the QBs that will step right into pass rush lanes.

Did you get that from PFF?

Yup. The style of QB play is important. All your "athletic QB's" --- fans knew the difference of OL play needed between Joe Montana, Steve Young and Jeff Garcia. These days, Watson, Wilson, and a host of others always are at the bottom of the TT stats but can also lead in CAY as a result but there's a big trade off on the OL. I remember our OL complaining about Jeff Garcia publicly because they never knew which way to block for him. There's always shared responsibility.

Do you have someone in mind?

Lynch brought in Sam Young and didn't sign him.

Shanahan said they looked at all possible options.

Unless Skule gets murdered by Dupree, I don't see a move coming. There just are no decent OTs sitting on a couch anyplace. Four or five teams now have OT injuries of one length or another and are looking for someone to plug the gap. Nothing.
Trent Brown would be helpful about now.

But would also limit what Kyle could call.
