Man I dunno I'm trying to figure this out. Outside of the Trent Cole sack, the other 2 can't be blamed on the line. The third one definitely was the line as Cole just blew around the outside. But the more I look at this the more I think about it...
Why, even if the line sucks, is he being sacked so much already? Reason I think is simply he doesn't want to just dump the ball off. He is trying to hard basically, instead of throwing it out of bounds, or dumping it off to his RB, he is instead pulling it down and trying to make more out of the play then its worth. Hes depending on his feet getting him out of trouble, which is all fine and dandy, but so far he hasn't had a very good feel in the pocket. 2 of the last 3 sacks could have been avoided by: sack #2 sliding to his right out of the pocket and sack #3 simply stepping up into the pocket. Neither of which he has does, instead he has tucked the ball and tried to take off and run.
Also I know its a GREAT thing to have a top receiving TE like Finely, but does it hurt just as much as help? Meaning, I'm watching the Eagles just eat the line up, so Grant is having to stay in and block, thus he Rodgers doesn't have his relief valve in a RB hanging around the line of scrimmage to dump off to. So why is it that all but maybe 2-3 plays have I seen Finley down field 20 yards, while Rodgers is laying on his back. Plus when Finley is going out on these pass plays, instead of being like most TE that will throw a chip on the DE to help out the Tackle, he isn't doing jack, too concerned on running his route.
There is a lot more then meets the eye so far in the first half then just saying the line sucks.
A big thanks to deluxe_247 for the sweet sig!
