    Bull shit. It is definitely something to be concerned with if McKinnie is actually going to be the starting LT this year. He just doesn't look like he's into it out there.

    Both sacks were because of McKinnie.

    The first was the Jags DL did a stunt and McKinnie followed the DE right into KO and let the DT (Knighton) go untouched around McKinnie and right on top of Joe. The second sack Joe was rolling to the right and Mincey just schooled McKinnie and came right up behind Joe for a strip/sack.

    I'm sorry, but everyone on the OL played pretty well last night. Oher had a false start, which came when Flacco killed a play and was calling an audible and KO had a holding penalty. Other than that, no one was really out of position or anything.

    As far as I am concerned, Oher should start at LT over McKinnie based on what we have seen from both guys this pre-season. Oher handled the Lions' starting ends and Oher stood well at LT in the 1st pre-season game against the Falcon's starting DE's. McKinnie looked good against 2nd stringers, but Mincey pretty much owned him last night. On the sack/strip McKinnie just stopped and threw his hands in the air as he watched the ball bounce around on the turf. At least Oher had the wherewithal to fall on the damn ball to maintain possession.

    I've been cautiously optimistic about Oher at LT but your right in preseason he's outplayed Mckinnie. He also looks to be in great shape and better equipped to handle the new pace we are playing at, plus KO has been tremendous at RT, i'll have to re-watch last nights game to see just how he faired at LG(I was mostly looking at Joe's footwork, offensive personnel, etc.). The best combo of players looks to be Oher,Williams,Birk,Yanda,KO.

    If Mckinnie were taking snaps at RT maybe you could make it Mckinnie vs. Williams for a starting nod but Mckinnie never seems to really get after it in the run game and again KO has been very good over there. I think you have to go with the best combo...personally a couple weeks ago i thought Mckinnie being late then put on the 2nd unit was a blessing in disguise because he'd have to work hard and grind to get his starting position back, and for all we know he could be working very hard but Oher and KO are bringing it, and that lineup as a whole i feel is really gelling. I think we have our starting unit now.
