It really doesn't matter to me which group fared worse. They all aren't good enough. Not even close. You have no chance next year if the OL consists of 4 stiffs like this year.
If I'm running the team, I would look to completely turnover the personnel along the OL in 3 years with the exception of Tyron and maybe Parnell, depending on his development. All the rest are gone. I don't look to "get by" there so I can buy more cornerbacks. Build the team from the line of scrimmage out and never the other way around.
