Offensive Line

If there is one unit that I give the most blame to for the loss, let us look into the unit that allowed five sacks to one player. The offensive line was able to contain everyone but Mack. Michael Schofield had his worst game as an NFL player and I know that Ryan Harris was beaten at least once and knock on his back.

Like Adam said in his piece, it just seems like the offensive line was trying to put Mack into the Hall of Fame. But Osweiler was dealing with pressure for most of the second half. And there is one reason as to the offensive line struggles.

I honestly am starting to see that Elway and Kubiak did not do enough in the offseason to address the line. It was one of the two major projects that they needed to work on. The defensive line project has been solid and the offensive line has been horrendous.

If I had to choose one unit that could keep the Broncos from reaching and winning this year’s Super Bowl, I am placing it on the offensive line and the inability to address it.
