"i really odn't think an olineman even a johnathan ogden or faneca type makes the top 25!
i just don't see it.
i would rather pay a a great defensive lineman than a great offensive lineman."
If you do not have good o-lineman you cannot run the ball. if you do not have good o-lineman you cannot pass the ball. In fact if you do not have good o-lineman you can not do shit. By not being able to run the ball you cannot control the clock, which means your defense is always on the field, which is bad. Without good o-lineman you could have a mutant QB made up of Vicks speed, Elways arm, Mannings mind, and Favres heart and it wouldn't matter because they would get killed everytime they tried to do anything. Offensive line is the most important position on the team. A good o-line has the ability to make a good running back a great running back, see Clinton Portis, and even though I think he is a great QB no matter what team he is on I do NOT think Peyton would ahve broke the record this year without his o-line. He would be an amazing QB on anyteam, but with the way he switches things up all the time that o-line deserves a TON of credit for that record and the success of that team. A football team is only as good as its O-lineman and D-lineman.
