We have NFL talent along the OL otherwise they wouldn't be in the NFL. Is it good quality NFL talent? No but it is NFL talent. The skill positions obviously weren't irrelevant. A qb that threw for almost 5000 yards and a 90 qb rating, two receivers and a TE with over 900 yards receiving, two with over 1000. The starting running back that missed half the season and when he was healthy and given the opportunity to run produced some decent results.
Yes most teams aren't like ours. Most teams don't have 2-3 good WRs, an All Pro te and a top 10-15 qb. Some teams have worse olines than we do. So yeah most teams aren't like ours. How many games were lost this year solely based on our oline. And no I'm not cheerleading this oline what I'm saying is our oline isn't the reason why are qb turned the ball over 20 times this season and why at times our defense couldn't stop anybody.
