Can anyone make the argument that the entire Bears offensive line doesn’t need to be replaced before this team has any chance of winning?
It’s quite obvious after Sunday’s debacle that no matter which way you slice it, there are major problems on the line. It would be one thing if they only allowed 10 sacks, but when you figure in they also flat out can’t run the ball, this is serious.
We all know that Olin Kreutz’ contract is up following 2010 and his play has been questionable for several years. What about the guard positions? Roberto Garza is obviously less than dominating, and was even pulled at a point Sunday night. Lance Louis is a work in progress. Will Chris Williams pan out at all? Will we ever see him at LT enough to know? J’Marcus Webb looks like he could potentially be a steal in the long run, but I think I’m getting close to being able to say the Frank Omiyale experiment has failed.
Great teams have great offensive lines. Very good teams at least have solid lines that can’t be totally exposed, as the Bears did in 2006. Teams that cannot run the ball at all do not go to the Super Bowl.
I just don’t see how the 2010 Chicago Bears offensive line is not the team’s achilles’ heel.
