Both Joe Thomas and head coach Pat Shurmur are insisting the Cleveland Browns offensive line is going to be good this season. They both see this as being the teams strength coming into the season. I wonder what they are seeing that the rest of us missed last Friday night? The Eagles were able to walk through the holes in the O-line to get to Brandon Weeden, forcing him to fumble the football. In the first 2 preseason game the line looked a little better on the left side, the right side still had a few problems.
When the Browns took on the Eagles it appeared the entire offensive line was out of it. The line has a lot of young guys, anchored by Joe Thomas and Alex Mack you would hope their ability would rub off on these younger guys. If it can get better hopefully it comes fast, the Eagles are the team the Browns open the season with and their defense is going to exploit every problem the Browns offensive line has. Lets hope for Weeden’s sake they have it together come opening day, otherwise we could see the back up quarterback for the Browns a lot sooner than anyone thought….
