Erik Robertson Our line is not mediocre. It's one of the top 5 in the league. I know our left side is vastly superior to the right side, but Goff is alot better than you give him credit for. From the Sporting News: "Goff is a physical run blocker with tremendous upper-body strength. He explodes off the ball and can pull and attack defenders." "The power play. This is the Chargers' signature run, and they have used it on 14 of Tomlinson's rushing touchdowns. The power play is marked by a pulling guard. That player has been right guard Mike Goff on 12 of Tomlinson's scores" From Football Outsiders 2005 All-Pro Team: Guard — Mike Goff, San Diego and Steve Hutchinson, Seattle Hutchinson is one of those linemen that every high school coach ought to show his players. Perfect technique, doesn’t take plays off, gets out of his stance in a hurry, etc. Goff and Kris Dielman quietly developed into the best pair of guards in the league this year. The best thing about Goff is the way he clears space in short-yardage situations. If the Chargers need a yard, they know they can get it running right behind Goff. From Dr. Z's 2005 All Pro Team article: Guard--Mike Goff -- Goff was an accomplished drive blocker for LaDainian Tomlinson, either pulling or going straight ahead. Until this year I had never really taken him seriously. He topped the scorers... I don't agree that Goff is an all-pro, but there's no way he sucks as bad as you think and garners this kind or praise from multiple sources.
