Who is winning these games?

Something that TSG brought up last night, but is well worth exploring, what has been the biggest change or impact for this team, my vote goes to the offensive line.  Consider the following statistics: 

  • In 2007, Jay Cutler and Ramsey were sacked an average of 2.1 times a game, this year that average is down to 0.7 per game, and during that same time we have attempted an average of 37 passes a game versus last year at 32 passes a game.  Or basically allowing five more shots at a sack per game.
  • Our running average is about the same with an average rushing play being 4.5 yds this year versus 4.6 yards last year. 
  • What is truly amazing is that this offensive line starts five different starters from opening season of last year.  Included in those starters is a rookie LT, a second year player with no starts, and a third year player moving positions.  
  • This line has also had to block for five different starting RB, and yet the production has not been that bad, everyone has averaged about 4 yds or better a carry with Hillis being the lowest at 3.9 yds/carry. 

I love the story of Royal, the emergence of Cutler as a top QB, the defense starting to play better despite having been depleted by injuries, the ST being so much better over the past 6 week and winning field position battles week in and week out, but the real story and MVP of this season is the offensive line.  Their work this year has simply been amazing
