Dave DeGuilmo (sp?) was fired by the Pats after two seasons that the Pats viewed as unacceptable from their OL. If you look at his resume', he doesn't seem to stay anyplace too long for whatever reason.
The coaches we have have good to great resume's... OL play is always the last unit to come around. This is not a surprise. Give it a little time. Certainly more time than two pre-season games....
Offensive line play is almost ALWAYS the slowest unit to come around. It's almost always that way. Compound that with having a new OL coaching staff teaching new techniques and this explains the slow start out of the gate.
This will take some time.
The idea that Mudd should not have been brought back because the game has passed him by............ is comical. And not in a good way.
40 time was 5.04. that's pretty slow in terms of 40.
doesn't mean he can't run a crisp route and use his body to get open.
"fast" is not a word to describe hale though. he catches and blocks well.
besides his vert 33.5, the rest of his measurables at the pro day were pretty bad.
