Mandatory Monday: O-Line Rankings

It was inevitable that I would give up trying to brainstorm loopy offseason features each week and revert to something more conventional and easier to promote. Going to go unit by unit ranking teams throughout June and into July. In the event that I come up with something loopy, I will just write it midweek.

Also Sports on Earth unveils a 32-team offseason feature this week, starting with the Falcons. My usual co-conspirators, including Rob Weintraub, Russ Lande, Dan Pompeii and Andrew Garda, will be chipping in and breaking down teams throughout the month.

Finally, buy my book.

Has game charting really become "scouting"?

I wonder with scarnecchia leaving, if the pats perpetual o line excellence will begin to fade.

God, I worry about that a lot. To me Scar was the one assistant I least wanted them to lose. In particular, he could not only coach well, he could also pick talent well for his scheme. A double loss for the Pats. I never worried about O-line when he was there. If they drafted high, I knew the talent was there. If they drafted low, I knew that, with his ability to spot and coach talent, they would be at least serviceable.
