    This is good news but real deep?

    We have skeletons in our closet for depth.

    Put Oben at right tackle and Olivea at guard.

    Now we are getting some depth with Goff stroking it on the sidelines.

    The line just got faster for screens and pulling plays and the right side is locked down with Oben and Olivea at guard.

    If we run 41 times at the Steelers and get 200+ yards rushing in a dominating performance, I am happy. Of course, the score has the reflect that as well.

    one quick question: why don't we run sweeps or tosses , similar to the fake pitch left where the whole team goes left and LT would get a pitch going right.

    Because our fats boys up front are too slow (Goff and Olivea).

    McNeil gives us speed at Left Tackle and so does Dielman at LG. Hardwick has average speed but Goff is SLOW man.

    The play you described is easier to run (counter trey) versus where the guards and tackles actually swing from one side of the line to the other in a sweep or side screen.

    He is a good run blocker and could figure prominently in our new vaunted running attack. :icon_mrgreen:

    Otherwise the dude is a waste of money.
