I liked Mongo last year but after the way the playoffs played out it never made sense to me why we chose to bring our line back. I liked what we did in the draft but it's not like that was our only avenue to improve. No point in turning Josh into Russell Wilson who's now perpertually banged up after years of not prioritizing their oline.

The reasoning that some of the local media have given is that they don't want to risk him to injury since he's the only real backup center option we have. (Although that's where Felciano has also played in the past).

 

 

That's just stupid logic.  So, if Bates really is our 3rd (we're assuming the 2 starts are interchangeable & they're the best guards) best option, keeping him on the bnech for the scenario of Bates getting hurt THEN Morse gets hurt?

Geez, by that logic, shouldn't we keep Allen safe, cuz if he gets hurt, then Trubisky gets hurt that leaves us w/ only Davis Webb?

Not rooting for injury... But this is very good news for the Bills. I have very little faith that McDermott would have made the move to bench him. 

 

It is what it is. 

 

Last season, the OL did seem to improve when he came back.  But perhaps playing better than Brian Winters at RG may not be the highest of high bars.

 

I'm not gonna say it's "good news" for the Bills until/unless we know for sure that someone better will replace him.

That’s exactly it. The line was struggling last year until he came back.  
 

he has been much worse this year, no doubt. But I just worry that the alternatives are, as people are suggesting Ike or signing Forrest— not really going to be the upgrade people want.

Yikes… I forgot they made a worse signing than Feliciano… Winters was a train wreck.

I'm not ready to say he's worse this year.  But last season, he struggled against the best DLmen -  he must send Father's Day cards to Chris Jones and Cam Heyward.  He was OK against others.  I believe the thought was with a full offseason to strengthen and condition, he'd improve - and that has not happened, either with Feliciano or with Ford.

I know 76 brings a lot of fire and hype but yeah, he’s had some real rough stretches this season. Unfortunately, I don’t think Ike has done all that much better. He got walked into the backfield a couple times yesterday. I’ve seen some others mention Ryan Bates, and I’ve also wondered why they haven’t bothered giving him a go at guard. I understand they view him as their backup center and I wonder if they’re getting him prepared to eventually take over for Morse. And not that I think Morse has been bad, but I’m also not sure he’s been good enough to justify his salary right now. They must think Bates has a shot to become a long term starter for them at some point. They traded for him and he’s made the roster outright these last few seasons. 
 

I also wonder how Dawkins is doing. He’s probably not in the best shape after his COVID ordeal, takes a while to truly recover from that, especially for athletes. I like Williams at RG and Brown at RT, even though he’ll surely take his lumps as the season goes on. 
 

I doubt they go trading for a guard, or really anyone…

i have said this before, but our interior Oline is serviceable. They are going to get beat against elite Dlinemen (Chris Jones, Hayward, and yesterday Raekwon Davis); they will be meh enough against everyone else. 
 

The problem is that all the playoff teams seem to have those Beastly interior d-linemen.
