“Offensive line is the most technical position there is, and it's a position of repetition,” Boselli said. “The guy who plays now gets half the reps hat I got in training camp. Maybe even less. So you have a position that isn't coached pro-style in college and you ask the guys in the pros to fix it and they don't have the time to teach it. There is limited time on the field. They have to put in the scheme and the offense and still try and teach the nuances need to play the position. The natural evolution is that it is not as good as it once was.”
“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.” --- Bill Shankly
