hmm not sure.... I did see Chicago lost a FB, so you should keep an eye on things like that.... the Browns get Dessimated every year with their line, but San Diego??? their line shouldn't be a concern b/c LT is #1, Without a doubt. I know it seems like a 12 year old girl could gain 1,000 yards a season in Denver, they always have RBs put up impressive #'s, then they get traded, and fizzle away.

Chicago lost their 2nd string FB, Obafemi Ayanbadejo, for 4 games for a steroid violation. He does not matter at all to Chicago's run blocking.

In any case, an easy way to judge how well a team run blocks is to see which RBs get a lot of yards each year. That's a good indication of run blocking. Or you can check out the offensive line rankings at FootballOutsiders.com.
The cake is a lie.

Usually the team with the most consistently high YPC average has the best run blocking lines, I agree SD and NE are in that category along with Chicago, Indianapolis and Denver

Totally off the top of my head (and not necessarily in this order):

San Diego
Philadelphia
Indianapolis (although the loss of Tarik Glenn might bump them way down)
Carolina
Chicago
Cincinnati
Denver
New England

Actually, I kind of like that order too, with maybe CIN and DEN interchangeable.
