    Well with all the personnel losses due to a trade and injuries we knew the offense was going to take a step back. Caldwell is going to be limited in what he can do with no Pitta and Jacoby. Then throw in the experiment known as "ZBS" and that leaves very little room for error. Today's performance was embarrassing but given what some of our other division rivals did we are still in a decent position. The goal is win the division.

    You want to know how bad the line played today, obviously run blocking needs no words. The last two weeks against supposedly better defenses and pass rushes, they gave up 4 sacks and 5 hits against Cleveland and Houston. Today, 4 sacks and 12 hits, I can't find pressures but I bet there were more than the last two weeks combined as well.

    Beyond pathetic.

    No "buts". We had 24 yards rushing and 7 of those were on one draw play. This went way beyond embarrassing. We returned 4 of 5 linemen from a good blocking unit yet these guys are playing like rookies. And against Buffalo, the 2nd WORST run defending team in the entire league. Completely unacceptable.

    Re: Maybe its me, but our line is TERRIBLE w Castillo

    Stop with the whining about nepotism. Castillo had a helluva pedigree when he came in late last year & we were all happy to have him (considering that the then-&-current OL coach has no pedigree, is an even closer buddy of Harbaugh, & struggles with ethanol).

    Castillo is reputed to be "a great teacher." Has he lost his touch? Or is this unit fundamentally unable to learn what he's trying to teach them?

    Moeller is still the official OL coach. Is he implementing blocking schemes that don't work well with the personnel? At Castillo's insistence or at cross-purposes?

    Is Gino incapable of calling the appropriate blocking schemes? Has he simply not learned enough? Does he not recognize what the opponents are planning? Or are the opponents able to diagnose his calls & alter their attack to defeat them?

    IOW I'd like to have a lot better handle on the situation before I start calling for anyone's head.

    He wasn't too stubborn to fire his OC last year. Harbaugh is hating what's going on a lot more than any fan. He's no longer a young head coach. He'll make the tough decisions.

    agreed. plus the bills were ranked bottom 5 in rush D...not looking good

    You know every year we have a game like this. I agree it's embarrassing what happened out there today. And guess what? We will see a game like this next year and the year after that and the year after that.......

    Our line sucks at pass blocking seemingly every year, and it's just gotten even worse with Castillo. Maybe Birk retiring had a lot to do with the regression of our O line, but I don't know, all I know is something has to be done because this is one sorry ass O line

    Castillo's zone blocking scheme has GOT to go! Gino is part of the problem, but he isn't all of it. The O-line has been god-awful all through the pre-season and 4 games of the regular season. How many more games will it take for the realization to dawn that this scheme and these players don't match??

    Yup. The absolute, utter and complete lack of any run game at all is one hell of a concern for this team.

    The O-line? Don't get me started.

    At least with Joe, I feel like he will improve. Oline? Not sure, but they'll have to if we are to do anything at all.

    Joe has a tremendous amount of pride in his own abilities. A game like this will give him a jolt. Look for him and the offense to be a different unit against the Dolphins next week.
