No one on this football team is going to throw a helmet 3 feet from Elway's head because he can not figure out the RT spot like how Hailey tossed a helmet at Jerry Jones for not signing Emmitt Smith.
    We'll see how it all shakes down. I won't be holding my breath, though.

    You'll need to remind me. I dumped the game.

    Like I said in the OP I think Bolles is playing better. I do not want to jinx the guy but even with his penalty he is playing better. Then again I do not think his performance the previous years...outside of the 17 penalties called in 2019 (7 declined / offset) was as bad as other posters.
    Munchak grades each guy after the game. Don't think we get to see those. Wouldn't surprise me if Garrett graded highest. He'd get marked down for that one flag, but that seemed a pretty chintzy call. Cushenberry had his hands full all day. Heyward beat up on him quite a bit in a "welcome to the NFL" moment. His performance might be ranked fourth out of five.

    Maybe we see a miraculous turnaround this year - it could happen. At this point, I'm just hoping we see some young guys come out of the woodwork.

    Haha, thread title says playoffs.

    Let's take some baby steps and try and get a win first.

    Re: Sam's point about looking at each assignment - RT is a weakness, but not the only one. I want able to watch the game yesterday but last week there were some pretty glaring missed blocks. I think that was a reason why Lindsay was a clear starter over Freeman in the past.

    Yea the T spot has been annoying me for a long time. We are where we are today because of bad T choices.

    The T position here has been the bane of this team for years. Agreed that it is a major factor in this offense being horrible for 5 years.

    Let's talk playoffs in another 3 years. Elway blew it not bringing in Mike Shanahan and Cousins with Kubiak when the fire was hot.
    Vikings are 0-2.

    You still want the Kubiak/Cousins combo with the way they’ve looked this year??

    Go back and look at each of the sacks from yesterday. Replay each one until you get an idea how each of the O-Linemen did on each sack. Ask yourself if Elijah Wilkinson was the only guy getting beat on each of those sacks? Pass protection includes TEs, Backs and receivers. Hard to tell exactly what was the pass protection called for on each of the pass attempts that resulted in a sack, so focusing on the O-Line is a good place to start.
    I would go even further and look at every play the pass protection broke down if the QB was sacked or not. At this point I would even suggest our ability to develop a QB is being hindered by the ability to properly execute pass protection.

    There is a lot we as fans will not know. What was the call...what was the responsibility of each member of the pass protection...were there any checks made? We can make assumptions about how pressure gets through and could it have been picked up....we will miss if maybe something else was designed to happen.

    What I do think has been obvious is the lack of ability from the RT. From what I saw in reports from practices before the season....this was happening there too.

    How much is the chemistry on the pass protection being affected by how the 2020 season has come together? How much is the chemistry being affected by people seeing the RT fail in practices before the season and fail in 2 games?
