Right, because returning 7 of your 8 linemen doesn't do anything, I mean chemistry isn't important on the Oline.
Because experience and development mean jack squat, it's not like:
Seahawks started a rookie college TE/ex basketball player at LT.
It's not like their 2nd year LG was a first time starter who had growing pains moving from his more natural side.
Or their 3rd year OC was an expert snapper who by all means was thrusted into a leadership role.
Or their rookie RG was a natural at the position.
Or their 3rd year RT was a converted TE that regressed likely because of playing next to a rookie that spent his entire off-season training to be the LT, only to lose valuable TC time because of a knee scope, where he was forced back to RT because Jemarcus Webb was horrible both physically and mentally.
It's not like the 3 other linemen weren't made up of 1yr, 1m free agent or 2 rookies.
I mean damn 4 rookies made half the group they ended the season with. Only 1 player of that 8 had more than 3 years of experience.
It's not like a young, very inexperience offensive line with little chemistry together didn't have to block for an immobile Russell Wilson, 2 oft-injured RBs, 1 a 2nd year player coming off a broken leg, the other a rookie who was more of a specialist than a workhorse forced to carry the load because the other 2 RBs on roster, was a blockhead who didn't run the right plays and tripped over his own feet when he had big holes and another rookie trying find his game in this system.
I mean damn, we should just give up now because experience doesnt matter, growth doesnt matter, development doesnt matter, chemistry doesnt matter, nor does the concepts of a healthier QB whose bread and butter is being elusive as all hell and adding at least 489 yards of rushing offense.
Nor does healthier RBs, who in their own right had to build their own chemistry and feel for their Olines.
That's not going to improve. Shit because players don't ever develop, they never improve, they don't learn from experience or build any familarity or chemistry together.
I guess it's time to throw in the towel, I won't watch the the Seahawks this season because there's no reason to.
The team sucks. The team cant learn or develop or build chemistry. I mean who would have thought this team won 10 games last season for as much as they are incapable of doing nothing to improve. Everything is going to be the same. Same injuries. Same performance. Same schedule. Same struggles. Same regressions. Same distractions. Because this team isn't human, they are robots set to their specifications, with out the program to transcend and learn from their mistakes.
