    That is the difference when you have capable pass blockers.

    Diehl for whatever reason, age, injuries, etc. was a horrible pass blocker the past two years at every position he's played.
    At this point in his career, he's a very good back up. He is fine at RT. He's not the "awful" player you guys are making him out to be.

    Again....what would happen if he got hurt? Obviously you guys think we'd be better off.

        That's just ridiculous.
        DD had been our LT for many years and during that time, Eli was one of the least sacked QB's in football.

          That's more because of Eli than Diehl.

            Look I'm not saying that DD is a great football player. What I am saying is that he's not the bumbling, incompetent that some of you are suggesting he is.
            And we have won a lot of games, and had a dynamic offense for many years with DD playing an important role on our O line.

            I mean..."the worst O lineman in the league". This is complete nonsense.

              I've said it before and I'll say it again. Diehl belongs in our ring of honor, not our offensive line. But now with the injury to the superior Locklear we have little choice. I hope Diehl goes down the stretch on fire...

              I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                  And a lot of that has to do with Eli more than the OL. Much the same as Peyton, Eli makes the OL look better by getting rid of the ball quickly and changing up protections.

                  Explain then why Eli was pressured on 45% or so of his drop backs last season. That doesn't sound like a great pass blocking line to me.

                    Sounds like a World Championship line to me.

                      Eli has a lot to do with the lack of sacks, but if it was a *bad* offensive line, no amount of stutter shuffling would save him from a beating.

                      Just ask Rodgers.
                      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                        Or Cutler.

                          Rodgers' OL is probably even worse this year than ours was last year. However, Eli I think is more willing to just throw the ball away rather than trying to keep the play alive. I think to a certain degree Rodgers' athleticism actually leads to more sacks, as in seeing as he's athletic enough to keep plays alive, he allows more time for the rush to get to him, whereas a less athletic guy like Eli will just give up on the same play and toss the ball out of bounds.

                            Just because they were a World Championship line doesn't entail that they were great. Eli was by a very wide margin the most pressured QB in the NFL in '11-'12. Combine that with a team that was last in the league in rushing and that tells me the OL was not very good last season.

                              There is no way in hell that Eli was the most pressured QB in the NFL this and last year. Thats just lunacy. Yes, our O line wasn't our strength, but it certainly wasn't the worst in football. Ask Jay Cutler.
