    So, any OL doubters turning into believers now?



    Just curious.

    Oher and Harewood have looked really solid together. Truthfully, other than Birk getting bowled over a couple of times by Geno Atkins, the entire OL has played extremely well.

    If we can just find a young center next year we will be fine.
    Let these boys grow together.

    Give Geno some seasoning and he'll be fine next year.

    The OL will be pretty darn young next year, but there is good talent.

    Our OL is never as bad as we say it is in August. I was concerned about the shift sans McKinnie, but it seemed to work out well fo rthe most part.

    Goes to show what a QB can do to make his o-line look good, though.

    The game has slowed down for Oher. Very surprised yet impressed with what Harewood did out there.

    did you hear Flacco in the interview after the game; saying how all the Olinemen love the no huddle because it negates the pass rush to an extent. win/win

    Harewood was really solid. Stayed home in pass protection and got to the 2nd level in the run game. Very sound game overall.

    OL gave up 4 sacks but I believe two of them were during garbarge time. Nevertheless OL held up well and Joe was in a zone today, saw the field well and got the ball out of his hand quickly. That will mask any defiency your OL might.

    I'm in favor of the youth movement. Harewood seems to have a nasty streak, KO had a great first outing (very impressive,) and Oher held his own.

    Keep the no huddle going and the O line will be OK

    Worst o-lineman is Birk and outside of one play he was pretty good.

    Modern offenses are not as hard on the tackles. In this offense the play does not take forever to develop. Oher is a good option at LT in this offense.

    How funny that most did not think Harewood would even make the team during the preseason and here he is starting. Considering that the Oline had 3 guys starting in new spots this year they did well. Other than Birk they all did great. I really hope they get Gino ready to play. It is not possible for him to be any weaker than Birk. Love Birk but he had a rought one out there.

    The O-line looked great, but I think at least half the credit goes to Cam (and Joe and the receivers, etc) for running a much much more dynamic offense. Many more rollouts, pulling Yandas, misdirections, slants, crosses, etc. Much more audibling away from potentially disasterous or unfavorable plays (that we used to run regardless). Much less 7-step straight back drops and out pattern type plays. It is the deep drops and long-to-develop predictable routes that can get your O-line (especially the tackles) in trouble.

    Oher was top-notch, and no penalties. Harewood looked great. Osemele was awesome for a rookie and good in general. Yanda was his usual badass self plus his pulls on some of the runs were devestating. Birk was the only "average" performance, and considering Cincy's DT's I think he did a commendable job.

    While there is little chance that every game we play will be this smooth on the O-line (or on offense in general), I think it is safe to say that our offense is going to be a force to be reckoned with. And Cam deserves a lot of the credit.

    It's still early but I'm impressed. The coaches know what their doing. Props to the o-line tonight! Mad props!
