The Worst Offensive Tackles in the League
I have seen some of the worst play by offensive tackles this year than I can recall in quite some time. Runners are not able to make it to the edge, and quarterbacks are harrassed, sacked, and put in jeapordy.
It's time to call out of few of these who put their QBs and RBs at risk.
Mike Gandy, Arizona Cardinals
I've have seen Mike Gandy get beat so many times this year it's no wonder the Cardinals are stuggling a little. I am surprised Kurt Waner is playing as well as he is given the he can't trust his leff tackle to protect him.
The Result: Kurt Warner Sacked
Kurt Warner has done a decent job with ball security and getting the ball off despite Mike Gandy. He has more of this to look foward to if Gandy doesn't man up.
Flozell Adams, Dallas Cowboys
Every time I have seen Flozell Adams play he struggles, gets tons of penalties for false starts and holding, and against the Giants used dirty tactics when he couldn't handle Justin Tuck. Here is is getting beat yet again.
Run Tony Run!!!
At least Adams is on Romo's right side where he can see Adams get beat and knows he has to run for his life. But sometimes, even that doesn't help.
Stephon Heyer, Washington Redskins
Stephon Heyer has replaced Chris Samuel at LT for the Washington Redskins. He actually is a pretty good run blocker but is not quick enough off the snap to handle many defensive ends and linebackers in the league.
This is probably what he looks like as Campbell eats dirt after he misses a block: "Who me?"
Run Jason Run!!!
Jason Campbell is not a very good quarterback, but he has happy feet because he is always getting chased by big lineman.
Notice who is getting beat and holding on this play?
Orlando Pace, Chicago Bears
Orlando Pace used to be one of the best tackles in the league. Age and injuries have clearly caught up with him. He couldn't handle the Packers defense and as a result the Bears lost the game.
Are You Okay Jay?
Jay Cutler usually likes to throw the ball to the other team when he is under pressure. Here he took his beating like a man. Thanks Orlando!
Sam Baker, Atlanta Falcons
I don't want to be too hard on Sam Baker since he is just a second year guy and actually isn't all that bad. But he struggles at times.
Saints defensive end Will Smith punked him like a jailhouse snitch in Atlanta's loss to New Orleans.
Gee, thanks Sam!!
Here Will Smith celebrates a smackdown of Matt Ryan. Thanks Sam!
