Ali Marpet has come into every game and answered all of our questions: Was he a good draft choice? yes. Is he able to play right away? yes. Will he play well? yes. Anymore questions?
“The offensive line has held up admirably, in no small part because of the Bucs’ efforts to help them out. While the linemen have certainly played better than last year, Dirk Koetter has also anticipated and compensated for their deficiencies far more efficiently. Tampa Bay routinely keeps extra blockers in and uses backs and tight ends to chip pass rushers, while screen passes and three-step drops help neuter the effects of a leaky offensive line.” – Reported by Sander Philipse
