not too long ago......
Again, this is probably because they have weighed YPC high. Both Shaun Alexander (and Maurice Morris when he was hurt) and Rudi Johnson had fairly low YPCs last year. Granted, Seattle's O-line hasn't looked the same since Hutchinson left but I still believe that is mainly due to Walter Jones being injured a good portion of last year. It doesn't look like the O-line woes are going to lift up much either as Pork Chop Womack just had some sort of leg injury (knee?).
I still believe CIN should be a top rated O-line, although I haven't followed what happened to their players in the offseason.
For the record, I began compiling the O-line rankings I've found thus far and should have something up within the next couple of days. Also, I found Chris Smith again and what he has the O-lines currently ranked at, although it doesn't have the insight his 2005 writeup had regarding each team. It's still very interesting however.
