How do you rank the NFL offensive lines?

Postby crimedoctor » Sun Aug 07, 2011 11:58 pm

So often we focus on the stats, what we see on the field, and what we hear from the camps--relative to each skill position player. That's fine, but don't forget that our favorite golden-armed QB's, TD-plunging RB's, and speedy WR/TE's all need a ton of GOOD BLOCKS to make everything work. I looked at 4-5 well-conceived O-Line rating webpages and combined the following composite rankings for 2011. Let's discuss this a bit. Who is rated a bit too high, ....or a bit too low?

1 Saints
2 Patriots
3Jets
4 Falcons
5 Giants
6 Colts
7 Ravens
8 Cowboys
9 Titans
10 Texans
11 Vikings
12 Dolphins
13 Chargers
14 Panthers
15 Bengals
16 Eagles
17 Browns
18 Broncos
19 Buccaneers
20 Cardinals
21 Jaguars
22 Chiefs
23 Packers
24 49ers
25 Lions
26 Steelers
27 Bears
28 Bills
29 Raiders
30 Rams
31 Seahawks
32 Redskins

I think the Bucs are rated too low. They were 8th in rushing last year and 10th in sacks allowed.

Also, FBs/TEs play an important role in blocking and I think Ravens need to be upped a bit due to that.

Jets lost Woody and are looking like they are on the decline.

Okay, based partly on what Hippo mentioned, .....a little more detailed research, .....and a recently published OL ranking source (CBS Sports), ....I've revised my list. Man, ....I gotta tell ya, looking at the CBS list, .....comparing it back to the various other lists, .....there is ENORMOUS disagreement on how these O-Lines should be ranked. This new list is fairly different, ....but believe me, I was trying NOT to let CBS's take on this shift things around too much. Please, ....more comments:
