    Outside of maybe Martin I'm not sure we should bring back another OLineman as a starter next year. There needs to be a total rebuild there. Collins and Smith cannot block anyone anymore. Williams just gets too many penalties. And we haven't had a good center since Frederick.

    Its going to be hard to fix it all in one season. I would target LG and Center.

    You have to change the OC and the LG for sure. It's just not working.

    We don't have a quality starting OT either.

    Totally agree. Unfortunately the cap and where they’ll pick in the draft doesn’t allow much room for upgrades.

    Totally agree see what this year's draft picks can do in the off season. Definitely need to draft lineman. Once a strength of this team is now a major liability.

    Hope a decent tackle is there at our pick and start there.

    center and left guard would be my top priority. Even if we won today Vita Vea would have eaten them for lunch next week.

    Biadisz is not so good that he doesn't deserve some competition for his spot and I don't need to say anything about Connor Williams.

    Getting blown up through the middle is one of the most discouraging thing to watch as a fan. That used to be a strength on this team.

    Clearly Connor Williams has played his last game as a Cowboy. I would try to deal Collins if you can or flat out release him if no serious takers, his play has fallen off the map since his extension.

    - if there's a reshawn slater at our pick in 1st rd. ..(good luck with that) i'd like to move on from Tyron smith ..but contract gonna play into part until he cannot physically play anymore at all ala travis fredrick - he stays but have to have Plan B

    - but LG and center would be my targets early rounds of the draft ....

    This, like you are going to find 4 starters from the draft and FA, would have to over spend.

    Need to draft OL, DL, and LB heavily.

    Bring Callahan back to coach OL ASAP.

    I would bring in younger LG and OT and RB and DE and CB, these would be my focus

    Can't fix the whole line in one season. So focusing on the weakest link. We got ball, Tyron, Collins, Steele for OT. Williams is a FA and got no one behind him, and our Center has had trouble throughout the season with no one to back him up either.

    If you are listing OL problems, it doesn't start with the OTs. It starts with the LG and then the C.

    Not that we shouldn't take an OT early if he's BPA but changing OTs without fixing Williams and Biadasz will get you the same results we saw today.

    The OL rebuild will not solve the QB problem

    that was the main issue today

    he is average and it shows in the playoffs

    Trade what veteran talent is left on that O-line for draft capital.

    I'd trade Cooper for a solid offensive linemen and draft one in the first 2 rounds. Its hard to win games without a running game.
