our best o-line is.......

47 posts in this topic

i think the best o-line would be canstonzo,reitz,shipley,satale,justice. It seems to me the o-line plays better when shipley is in. a lot of our good runs came when shipley was playing center. I dont think satale has enough of a mean streak to play center. Maybe a move would be good for him. what are your opinions on th best o-line we can possibly have.

Move Reitz to RG and swap Satele for Link, and you have a deal.

Castonzo, Link, Shipley, Reitz, Justice

I disagree with the topic title it should read " Our o-line sucks less when we play.........".

I don't know that I would agree that Satele playing RG would be our best line. Considering to my knowledge, he's never played that position in the pro's.

well playing from center to guard isnt much of a change to say tackle.

Then if he sucks at center(as many suggest he does) then how would he not suck at guard too?

.........And sometimes it's a terrible idea. I just don't think he is strong enough to play guard in our blocking scheme. IMO, he is best suited for the center position, but he needs to get it together because right now he's probably the 3rd best center we have on the team.(Shipley, McGlynn)

Don't get me wrong, I agree with the other's you suggested, I would just switch Satele for Link. And that pains me to say that because I'm not a fan of Link at all, but when he has played guard this yr. he has actually done pretty well.

I'm still going to call Anthony out. Dwayne Allen should just play left tackle. He was doing Anthony's job yesterday and helping him throughout the season.

Why are you guys dogging our OL, in my imagination they're very good. In my imagination, my imaginary OL has all players going to the pro bowl!!!!

My imagination wins 1 to nothing yeah!!!

All you have to do is sing the imagination song.

Imagin!! Imaginaaaaaation, imaginaaaaaayyyyytttiiionnn, ohhhh imagine, imaginaaaahhhhyyyyyeeeeeeetion!!!!!

Some of the blame, no matter who is playing, goes to our coaching staff. When they're constantly sending the blitz, like yesterday, they have to call a screen to back them off.

Except for AC, no one on that line will ever be mistaken for a pro bowl player. That's why I cringe whenever we go empty backfield.

Sorry, but there should never be an "except" Anthony Castonzo. Number one prospect, play like it! Way to many times this season have I seen him lost, getting help or Dwayne Allen blocking his guy.

Justice was getting bull rushed all game yesterday. I would actually wait until Justice was fully healthy and then put him in.

When he has been injured and still plays, he is horrid. When healthy he is a good RT.

Andrew Luck said on espn today that Samson Satele is the guy he defers to as the "teams leader"

That says to me...

If Satele is healthy, he will be the starter.

Our best o-line is the one we will have after signing a couple of free agents and a draft pick this off season.

Our best offensive line is not on this team yet and will need to be addressed this offseason if they wish for Luck to stay healthy.

Outside of AC I really do not feel comfortable with any of them starting especially Justice. The guy was just getting abused yesterday and pushed around like a ragdoll.

Our best O Line combo is......um....uh.....uhhh.......hmmm :dunno: I know it involves

LT

LG

C-Shipley

RG-Linkenbach

RT-

No I dont think Castonzo is our LT of the future(I think he will look alot better in the pass game as Luck grows more and more comfortable but I dont think much improvement coming from him consistently in opening up holes for the run game

I was just wondering what makes you think Ijalana is capable of playing LT at the pro level?

Wasn't Ijalana discussed at LT a while back, Nothing makes me think he can at this point but I dont thin Castonzo is our answer at LT

You have seen Ijalana play for about a quarter when the other team had no film on him and did not practice for him yet you are ready to hand him the job or protecting Andrew Luck's blind side? It's very questionable to if Ijalana is even on the roster next year let alone being the starting left tackle. I understand people like to try to be different but it's calls like this that make me glad that the fans don't run the team. IF, and that's a big if, Ijalana comes back from this injury and plays well with the STARTERS and Castonzo becomes a problem then they might look at it but frankly left tackle isn't the big problem with the o-line. It's the middle of the line where the heat comes from most of the time. That's guards and the center. Honestly I would be okay with bringing Castonzo and Justice back as tackles IF we upgrade the other three positions.

I'll also say this the one knock I've noticed on Shipley is that his snaps are low and before I get nailed for "nit picking" like I did last time I brought that up that's an important detail when talking about a center when your QB spends a good bit of time in shotgun. Clearly it's something that can be improved but could play a role as to why he's not starting over Satele along with the leadership quality.

I agree that it is obvious that the interior of our O Line is a real concern(Thats obvious). We have two Guards and a Center who simply have not gotten the job done this year(to me it was a given from day 1 it was not going to work well at all) and while Justice not being a world beater, he has played decent but dont see him as being the answer at RT.I think pre injury Ijalana was better suited at LT and to help not expose Justices slow feet he could have been tried at Guard.(This was all pre injury), Next year I would do something different. As for who we put out there for the rest of the season, ......Castonzo-LT LG-Linkenbach C-Shipley RG-Mcglynn RT-Justice

I agree to putting AQ Shipley in at center. Hes played well in just about every opportunity hes gotten. Satele doesnt look like hes gonna stay healthy anyways.

Our best Oline will be Castonzo, Reitz, and maybe Shipley. The rest have to go I am not even sure about Reitz. Hopefully bring in a few via free agency and the draft.

This year, I think Castonzo, Reitz, Shipley, Linkenbeast, and Justice would be the best setup. Just not Seth Olsen. Please not Seth Olsen. PLEASE!!

    • Fickle Charger fans might bolt [no pun intended there.] However, diehard San Diego fans aren't going anywhere. Losing Bosa isn't gonna jeopardize their shot at a new stadium either since even if Joey had showed up at the beginning of training camp & balled out; His presence alone wasn't gonna generate droves of revenue from the CA legislature courtesy of tax payer funds that residents approved of. Financing is usually generated by ownership, city council members, zoning committees; vendor appeal; & taxpayers who are convinced by elected officials in Congress that this new stadium structure will pull in money from hosting other events adding lucrative annual revenue directly into your state.    Yes, winning football teams make it easier to get land & financing faster for a new NFL home than a losing franchise sure, but the league understands all 32 teams need to thrive fiscally in order to make the shield more profitable both in the US & abroad.    Even with salary guidelines in place now based on the CBA & when a player was drafted, losing out on Bosa won't be that demoralizing to me because all scouting departments do rigorous workups, interviews, & 1 on 1 sessions with players they are interested in before & after the Combine so it's not they were blindly throwing darts at a board here. I don't feel sorry for San Diego at all. They pulled the trigger on Bosa, retracted their offer, & now get to eat their homework research failure. Life goes on. 
    • This is an owners thing,  not a players thing.   The things that the owners are asking for were not spelled out in the new CBA.   They're asking for the large bonus to be paid out nearly a year after being drafted.    AND,  they're also asking for the off-set language to go in their favor.       And since neither was addressed in the CBA,  both issues have to be negotiated by each team and player.       The owners are asking for both.     Most players are giving one or the other but not both.   Believe me,  this will be addressed in the next CBA.   This is not all Bosa.....  
    • Not for his majesty King Belichick and their prince Brady you are correct.
    • Maybe he shouldn't have gave an answer to the Bosa question but his answer wasn't wrong. 
    • I think you might play better than Butler did last year and what little I've seen of him this year He gave up a 117 passer rating when targeted in the slot last year.  He could never play outside. We need  an upgrade. I think we got what we could out of him.    I'm now getting frustrated with Smith. I thought he looked more comfortable vs Ravens and was hoping to see a little more this weekend. i was fine with limited action in the preseason but come he out again. I hope he's ready week 1.
