Offense came on big today and here's why

QB Huge upgrade Charlie showed get presence and had all day to throw, only 4 hurries
LT Upgrade Pads is back and make a big difference
RT Upgrade Flo is back and makes a bug difference because RG Huge Upgrade with Legursky, Essex who was never really any good is gonna get Wally Pippedby Legs.

Think of it with way, the Offensive line is almost like a single athlete. You can have a brilliant mind and great physical talent but if an arm or leg is broken then the overall performance will not be there. Trai was that broken arm or leg. Now we have competent players all across the line.

Ben will destroy the league when he comes back.

Also, along with great line play, the receivers came up big. Little used in the first two games, they made the plays when called upon. Running is the great equalizer as well, Mendenhall and then Redman had some key runs.

we will see on sunday. the bmore defense will be the biggest test for our line. give batch or most nfl qbs time and they can make the throws. I like our new center pouncey. i think he is the biggest difference maker on the line.

Without a doubt, in his first year Pouncey has far exceeded my expectations (as a rookie). Usually with a center, there is a series of growning pains, especially in blocking schemes and audibles at the line. Every C has a muffed snap or two, but I have been impressed with his command in the trenches.

If he is anything like his brother, I think he can slide over to RT. I'm saying this because Hotel is here for a ring and will get one barring a massive injury collapse by the team. Then he retires a happy man.

after 3 games i hear a lot of SB talk. the big "if" is as you say can they stay healthy. the talent is there no doubt. i even like the depth at all positions. this could be ring 7.

The whole right side of the line is new and Coach Kugler gets huge marks from the boys because they are all saying they are learning so much. I guess Larry Z was just a rah rah guy.
