The Lounge>Have we reached critical mass with Reiter and/or Wylie?
DJ's left nut 10:07 AM 12-02-2019
Because those guys were getting mauled. There were a half dozen plays yesterday that simply died at the snap because Reiter and Wylie were immediately pushed into the backfield.

It isn't just about losing a snap, it's about how they're losing theirs (and how quickly). The best you can hope from either of them, especially in the run game, is a draw.

Wisniewski has looked good out there. At the very least, he seems stout at the point of attack. Don't we have to give the guy a look there? As the weather turns and the playoffs arrive, we're gonna HAVE to be able to convert some of these short yardage situations without these long-developing crossers from Hill or the inside screens that teams are largely prepared for now.

I just can't handle watching those two guys get abused anymore. I can handle LDT's mediocre play because at least he's not getting beat immediately and badly. He's not blowing guys off the ball, but he's generally holding his own. But Reiter and Wylie are playing poorly enough that they're smothering some of these plays in the cradle. It's just completely unacceptable.

Your mother reaches critical mass every time she goes to Golden Corral.

Not that he would have been a solution necessarily, but I wonder what Kahlil McKenzie is up to on Seattle's practice squad. Has he taken another step with that team, or is he just kind of the same undeveloped inexperienced player he was for us?

I was just wondering about him.

It sure seems strange to me that we kept that dude on the active roster for 17 weeks last year when we had some serious roster crunches here and there (Thanks again, Hobo Spirit), but then cut his ass out of camp.

Youíre damn skippy weíve reached the point of no return

Canít do much about it this season unfortunately, but yeah it just simply cannot go on like this... late round castoffs/projects simply will NOT do anymore

These interior trash cans gotta GO

SIGNIFICANT draft and free agent resources need to be spent this offseason, itís been our Achilles heel for far too long

As a general rule, I dislike throwing individual players under the bus.

However, these two players haven't performed well at all this year so far. And I can't say which one has been the bigger disappointment.

But with these two Mahomes doesn't have the luxury of consistent protection in the passing game, and we can't run barely at all to the left side/left center, making our run game significantly less effective.

I'm no OL expert, so this is a complete WAG, but I'd like to see Wiz and Erving in at center and LG for the foreseeable future this season. They couldn't do any worse, that's for sure.

Like I said a couple of days ago what would Pat do with a Ravens type offensive line?:-)

We could have kept Hudson or Morse but chose not to. Why would we change philosophy now?

I read Wiz doesnít like playing center anymore. He was cut shortly after signing a 4 year. He was beat out at C.
Prior to and I think Super Bowl he was playing LG. But the high draft pick he beat got better and took back his spot so Wiz had to play C if he was to stick.

I’m fine with it but you guys need to look at a team with a great OL and see how it was built.

It’s gonna take some first and second round picks
