After five games, against good teams that have a pretty good front seven,

They have been playing outstanding football.

According to Football Outsiders, the OL is ranked 7th for both run and pass protection.

Ranked 19th on the run block, in which I think thats a little miscued because we've been passing the rock more than using the run.

But the pass protection is outstanding and we are number one.

We are the top OL with the least amount of pass pressure percentage and only giving up 3 sacks after five games against good front seven defensive teams.

Four of those five teams were playoff teams last season with AZ an up rising team for this season was our only lost, and during that game, our OL still played outstanding.

On my posting over at the Baldy's Vids, you can see and watch what the OL how good they are doing.

Props to our OL.....

Agree with this post. *Knocks on wood*

I was nervous about the change in coaching for the OL, not because of Carberry's CV but felt Kromer was a bit of scapegoat, the improvement with much the same group proves me wrong.

I also appreciate that the Rams have been able to identify and develop talent. Allen's performances last time out made me nervous, but he has looked stout in my eyes.

Couple with trades for 'bust' Corbett and low rounder Edwards and I really appreciate how they piece together the puzzle. Aeneas has pointed out a few times how the Pats have consistently put winning OLs together without the need for high round capital...I would love it if they continued this policy.

There are a number of finishing contracts coming up and surely a pending retirement for big Whit. They'll need to get their thinking hats on again.

The new OL coaching change seems to have helped the OL while the new DC change has hurt the defense.

Not near as bad as the "Draft linemen early and often" crowd claimed they would be.

Continuity has a lot to do with how this unit is playing,

After being together and going into their third year as a unit,

Plus building up the physical strength in the middle

With two experience bookends,

Has more to due with how they are playing IMO

I wouldn't rule out Stafford and Allen doing a better job of communicating and calling the right protection...
