the whole Oline was mess last week, beside from pierce big run there was no room to run, with bullshit bobby williams and birk getting blowed off the ball. They should have shuffled the line for this game just see how it work, we already had fired Cam and couldn't expect a whole lot out the offense with caldwell's first game as OC. The shuffling would have made sense at that time. Bringing Mckinney in at the least would have strengthed the Oline because it would sent Oher back to RT where he is atleast above average and slide KO to gaurd which he started out during camp and by all means was doing pretty well there. Which means Birk might not have look so bad with an interior of Ried and KO atleast the gut would not have been blown up that much time and gives more strength to the right side with Oher as run blocker. Who know's how Mckinney would have worked out all I know is that dude shut down James Harrison in a key blowout last season week 1 Oher has never shut down harrison as a matter fact I wanna say every time flacco got stripped sacked by the steelers is was on Mike Oher i'm willing to book that.
Oher's played average this year. He hasn't played great. He's given up some big plays. But he's also done well at times.
You know, in a way, the Ravens have tried to admit that Michael Oher is not their future LT. However, they are putting together a string of talented LT that have the potential to be the best in the league, but who fall short due to poor work ethic.
They need to improve their efforts in truly finding a high quality mainstay at LT.
With Pierce, they ran 19 times, which doesn't count the long Pierce run that was called back by a Birk holding call. Given they were losing, and losing by four touchdowns at the start of the 4th quarter, it wasn't a lack of rushing that cost us the game.
