That's a huge hit for the OL. I hope the next man up can get the job done.

Barron is not the answer. We better start looking at the waiver wire and cut lists. If Barron lines up at tackle we better line up the TE and have 2 blockers to protect whoever is the QB.

i agree and i said the same about looking for a free agent but barron just got here and got thrown into the lions. plus he's not the only weak link. so can't just blame him. he just needs to be fine tuned. mckenzie say's he's not goin to just go and get into the waiver wire just because of one player. these guys on the (O) just need to get healthy! plus, i really don't belive we have the best of the best line out there. five sacks so far in the first half? c'mon man!

Coaching made adjustments 2nd quarter and Flynn had a nice drive. I think we will be OK.
