Analyzing the O-Line
It's days like these when I sometimes wonder why every local paper has to have its own Redskins coverage team; why we couldn't just pool resources, and use the extra man power to play golf.
Richmond Times-Dispatch: "Bugel found offensive line to be offensive"
Washington Times: "Line's showing upsets Bugel"
Examiner: "Line's troubles a cause for concern"
AP: "Redskins concerned over offensive line"
Washington Post: "Redskins put it on the line"
Virginian-Pilot: "Line's ragged play, additional injuries raise concerns for Skins"
I read all those; you shouldn't bother. They're all basically the same, except Jason LaCanfora's is better than the rest. The point is, for an especially unique look at the offensive line issue, go to Post Game Heroes's post game breakdown, which was modeled after the work done by Bog friend Brian Cook at mgoblog. The line's man-by-man performance is analyzed for every first-half play; every formation and play call is included. It's a task that must have required more patience than putting a screaming five-month old to bed.
Now I don't know the author's football background, and his name is Dillweed, but for the record he's come to an opposite conclusion of everyone else, including the coaching staff: that Wade actually played ok, and that Jansen was actually the worst performer of the bunch. Anyhow, Dillweed has promised to do this all season.
