We have to get Feliciano in the starting lineup. I like:

 

Dawkins - Spain - Morse - Feliciano - Ford

At this stage, Nsheke is the better tackle.

You folks don't seem to be realizing that there are typically four tackles on a roster, meaning some guy of significance is likely losing a spot to McDermott, Wesley, or someone who's not even on the team yet. You can't roll with only three tackles, especially if you're talking about starting all three of them!

I love McDermott overall but he seems to have hard-to-understand fascinations with certian guys, Vlad being exhibit A. He sucks. Penalties, slow AF, I don't know man.

Hard to understand is the point. McD sees and knows things we don't.

Didn't get to see any run blocking from the starters, though.

Did anyone else pay attention to Wyatt Teller last night?  I was also very impressed with what I saw from him as well.  He was knocking guys around all over the place.  It's nice to see the nastiness taking form on our offensive line.

You can tell when a team is getting better when you cut guys that wind up going to other teams and starting.  I suspect that happens with a couple of the O line guys this year.

Think about this and try not to shutter: Ducasse, Miller, Mills, Teller, and Bodine were all regular starters on our o-line last year 😭 ..... All five are in danger of not having a NFL job in a few weeks.

 

The improvement in o-line personnel alone with make Allen, the WRs, and the running backs so much better this year. Even mediocre results from them will be huge improvement.

I pity the team that starts Bodine or Vlad.

Tackles: Dawkins, Nsekhe, Ford, McDermott/Wesley

Guards: Spain, Long, Feliciano, Teller

Center: Morse

 

Seems pretty straight forward at this point barring injury.

With Fords ability to move.  I could see see them keep 3.  You always move Ford to RT if Nyske goes down and have Feliciano or Long play guard.  I think they keep 8 to 9 lineman.  Tellar would be the 9th.

I'm not a Ducasse fan at all, but objectively I'll say Joe B. did a deeper dive into Ducasse's play last year and found him to be one of the better points on the line. Actually, the last two years which I think has more to do with assignments than anything else. That said, it's wonderful to see that last year's starting G / C can't hold the jock of the guys projected to start this year. Talent upgrade and superior production is believed to be on the horizon. Last night's glimpse was encouraging, but we do need to see consistency and get Morse out there to build the chemistry before we start comparing them to Dallas and Indy as terrific O-line units.

I think that Ducasse came along with the former O-Line Coach, Castillo.    Vlad was Castillo's guy and Vlad won't be around.   

 

It seems, and I could be wrong, that they would rather have Ford at Guard at this point.  The Washington guy played well last night, but I did see Ford whiff on a block early in the game and Sweeney must have missed a chip block on the sack of Allen.

We need Mitch Morse for the entire season.

 

He’s the key to our offensive line.

 

IF our offensive line stays healthy and keeps Josh upright, we might surprise a whole lot of people this season.

 

Big if though.

Right on. I really liked what I saw tonight out of the starting OL. And that was with Morse out!

 

I'm expecting Feliciano and Ford to slide one step to the right when Morse comes back.

 

Hoping they continue to gel!

What happened to Morse?

I don't think Ford is near ready to handle the Kahlil Mack / Von Millers of the world who routinely line up across from the RT

I think Bodine is gone

Mitch will be back....and we have 2 other OL that should make the team that can both play center and guard in Feliciano and Long

I think so too.  After Morse, there are a few players who can play center in a pinch, and not look terrible.  Bodine really is a center only and does look terrible at times.  Feliciano, Long, and even Boettger can all snap the ball, and offer you something at guard as well.

Agreed. It's just that most people don't include McDermott/Wesley.

Played better than you'd expect. Bodine OTOH, is a disaster. Boggles the mind how he started all those games in Cincy when they were making the playoffs every year.

 

That was my thought, too. I was like, "How the heck did this dude start for four straight years in Cincy?" I assume they had somewhat of a different blocking scheme or perhaps the guards on either side of him made him look alright.
