Interesting responses ...............The Russell Wilson and a Cast of Extras Crowd
is rarely complementary of other position groups. After all, they are just extras. Thus repetitive posts that result are a product of a narrow subject of interest and team view.
Then there is also the broader view that A Unit Is Only As Strong As It's Weakest Link.
After all, defenses design match-ups which pit their best lineman against an offenses weakest link. In the minds of fans that rely on a pecking order list, that weak link is designated before the season begins and becomes locked in. This year's fan driven perception of that weak link appears to identify center Ethan Pocic. The reality is that the competition and how a defense can attack an offensive line can vary from week to week. So we have some who lock themselves into a pecking order before the first game and another group who can discern game to game variation.
There is also a group among us that recognizes and appreciates Continuity and the Building of Team Chemistry
. A recognition that a developing unit can result in a whole that is greater than the sum of it's parts. I think we are fortunate to have Mike Solari developing this crew. I think he is the prime reason linemen are returning for a follow up year.
In this thread's responses, I see quite a mix in mental frame work from which various forum member are posting. That's the thing about this type of open forum. This forum invites a wide range of hierarchy of thought.
