Too much of this season, it seems as if there has not been somewhere for the offensive to go, but up there.
Manning was dismissed once after the hodge podge offensive line items that have included Ereck Flowers (Benched, then released), Patrick Omameh (Benched, Then Released), John Halapio (Damaged), John Greco (Benched), Spencer Pulley Brown, rookie Will Hernandez, Chad Wheeler and award-winning free agent Nate Solder are combined to allow 31 sacks in the previous eight games.
While Shurmur had the right to be optimistic about the line’s game against the 49s, Hernandez’s assessment seemed more appropriate for a group that could only clear the way rookie drove back Saquon Barkley to rush for 67 meters and could not complete the race without allow a bag.
“I really think these guys can get the job done and it’s just because we actually do it, and I think we did it tonight,” Hernandez told NJ Advance Media after the match. “But I still know that we can do so much better. We talk about myself and talk about the rest of the offensive line. I know that the rest of these guys are not happy with their game this evening.”
“I know these guys can do so much more. We expect so much from each other. I feel we can really do much more harm. “
