“You Can’t Allow Your Quarterback To Get Hit”

August 18th, 2011

Preseason games are almost meaningless. Right?

Well, not when your quarterback is pounded, so Davin Joseph told Joe tonight.

“They say it doesn’t matter, but the things we did today are not good for us in the long run,” Joseph said. “[Preseason] is still important. You can’t allow your quarterback to get hit. “We have to start strong and sustain drives. We’re going to work on it.”

As Joe wrote earlier, the offensive line play was the biggest disappointment. The O-line needs to be at least as good as it was last season.

    The starting O- line WAS as good as it was last year. O- line played badly until we got young guys starting. Our line has always underachiever- Always!

    What depressed me was the young guys looked just as bad last night!

    Pat Morris- where are you?

    The line played just like it did last year. We just never faced a team quit like this Patriot team or a coach like Belicheat.

    First 8 games last year- no back averaged 3 yards a carry. Caddy was getting 2.3 yards. Everyone said Caddy was over the hill. Meybe, but no one else did any better until we changed lineman. Freeman was running for his life. I said all offseason that our line consist of career underachievers. I’m mystified at how much we payed Joseph and Trueblood- both major underachievers. Joseph is ok at run blocking, can’t pass block. Trueblood has slow feet and always has bad leverage. We already knew this!!! Yet we overpaid them, and did nothing to improve the line.

    After the draft, we really only had a few weak spots. O-line and OLB. Instead of getting good players, we seem to have decided to pay bad players good money. Seems a strange approach. .

    Feel bad for Freeman on wk.1. Suh doesn’t gently lower the quarterback to the ground like the NFL wants.
