Come on, Chief.
Bill said last season Flo's injury brought him a greater appreciation for the game and for his good luck to be playing it. I think Flo returns rejuvenated and more consistent.
Fabini will be competent, and Al is reportedly beefing up for those 3-4 noses. Dre made fewer penalties last year than the previous. Pettiti is going to benefit from off season strength training.
Rivera too has something to prove after his sub par performance last year.
I have some confidence in the individual cogs...it's how the unit meshes, especially in Larry's absence, that worries me.
What is this line's 'identity' going to be now...w/o getting too touchy-feely about it...what's it's style going to be? Finesse/ agility or road grading and pancaking? Both?
BTW, I read somewhere our offensive blocking schemes are more dependent upon recognition (and by extension, smarts) than zone blocking shemes are. Can anyone elaborate on that?
