    Re: The Offensive Line



    The oline is just not good enough to be a run first run it when ever you want type. They also can not reliably pass block on third and long which is why they always call so many short check downs. And receivers do not break tackles or make people miss on the check downs

While they've played admirably given the circumstances, I don't think they've earned that type of capital. I think you'll end up in a similar situation to what happened with Jeremy Zuttah. Many posters went into the 2016 season thinking that they just needed 'Adequate' play from the Center position. If you're going to truly improve the offense, you can't keep settling for adequate.
    Well let’s see how Jensen finishes the season out. Right now I don’t have a problem with paying him as long as he’s earned it. I get your point about Zutah but You can’t assume that Jensen will be the same. And I’m ok as well, with going into next season with the line we intended to play this year. IMO the FO needs to focus on WR, TE, and maybe a workhorse RB in the draft and FA. And maybe keep an eye out for a legit backup QB. Someone who might push Joe a bit.

    We can. Next year we get our 5 or so guards back from IR. I, for one, am pretty pleased with how Jensen has played this year. Our offensine line could be a true strength next year - well, until we get hit with 6 or 7 season-ending injuries:(

However, particularly inside, none of those guys are to the point where they should be handed anything.
    Once again, taking shots at Jensen.

    The debate centers around the inane paradox of he'll get paid but he shouldn't be "handed" a starting spot...if he's not good enough to be a starter, who's gonna pay him like one? Makes no sense.

    He's gonna be the topic of a franchise tag if they can't get him signed for what we can afford.

    I don't know I just looked at the top 5 centers they are all basically 10+ million I don't know Jensen is worth that. Tretter is the 12th highest paid center at 5.5. Where do you think he is going to settle for?

    The Ravens will NOT use the franchise tag on Jensen. I forbid it!

    Well if heís playing like a top 5 center they will either pay up, tag him, or let him walk. I would prefer to keep him if possible. He could anchor that line for a few years to come.
