Greg Bedard watched the game on tape ( and attended the game) and reports that the oline played poorly. ( Neal, please keep the Vaseline comments between yourself and your hands).
so lets see, everyone who attended the game ( including myself), every analyst, every writer, and every ex player turned talking head who attended the game, or had the opportunity to see the film ( I did not see film) says that the Oline played very poorly, worst game of the year stuff....except Neal says everyone has no clue except for himself, and he is telling it to is straight up as he is smarter than everyone else.
In the moronic, over used obnoxious words of Neal......" Tears!"
According to Bedard;
Offensive line (1 out of 5)
The worst performance this season. In order: Ryan Wendell (two hurries), Dan Connolly (sack, hurry), Mankins (two knockdowns, hurry, 1.5 stuffed runs), Solder (three hurries, 2.5 knockdowns), and Sebastian Vollmer (sack, hurry, 2.5 knockdowns, half-stuff). And that doesn’t even account for the hurry and three stuffed runs I couldn’t assign blame to.
The reason for the lack of execution constantly changed, from losing one-on-one battles to whiffing on chop blocks (Vollmer twice) and failing to pick up stunting linemen. The latter was probably the most alarming. A postseason opponent will watch that film and plan to exploit a line that continues to be subpar at stunts, mostly because Mankins, Vollmer, and (to a lesser extent) Connolly are very gimpy.
