I am becoming more confident we will be OK on the OL. With Kelly stepping up and good options for the final two pieces, I think we will be solid. Cristobal seems like a great coach. So my main concern moves from between the tackles to between the ears. Hoping the offseason problems are not indications of slipping attitudes or lack of focus/character in the remaining players. Hopefully served as a wake up call and opportunity for rededication. I haven't heard any negative about this new team's attitude, but still listening for CNS endorsement of the team's focus like he did last year. Internal competition may be enough to keep pushing each player to his max. It is early, but the key will be to see the kind of leadership on the team we had last year step up.

Oline play is not based on talent/skill alone. A great deal hinges in their ability to play as a cohesive unit. Luckily we have talented guys in the wings who've had the opportunity to learn from the best with the guys we had last year. The will have a breakdown or 2 but I fully expect CNS and CMC to have these guys ready.
