"Seahawks have drafted 14 offensive linemen since Pete and John started, tied for the most with 1 other team. They have not given out a second contract to any of the linemen they have drafted."
That's a glaring statement. They've had some bad luck, Okung was never hurt in college, Carpenter was very good in college, but couldn't keep his weight down and had subsequent injuries.
Sweezy worked out, but everyone outside of the Seahawks was willing to overpay for our linemen, and the ones that we've signed off the scrap pile, have been just that, scrap.
The biggest thing that has limited our ability to field a good to great offensive line has been the fact that we have paid our defense top dollar, money that they have earned, and deserve. But that leaves a team short somewhere.
I don't "blame" Pete and John for the offensive line, because I like the wins that they have produced, but I would like to see some consistency in who they play up front.
I'm hoping that Fant improves enough over the summer (apparently he's busting his tail along with Britt and Glow and Ifedi), that he can remain at Left Tackle. He has the athleticism to be dominant, just not the experience.
But I want to see the same 5 guys up front that ended the season there!
