Failure Is Part Of The Process When It Comes To Raiders’ O-Line Says Coach

The offensive line continues to be the center of attention for all things relating to the Las Vegas Raiders. Much of that stems from the current state of the unit. Other than Kolton Miller, the prized left tackle, much of the line is replaceable. Most point to the need for upgrades throughout the line, but right now, Josh McDaniels has to work with what he has.

Part of maximizing the roster of linemen is figuring out which starting combination is best. It’s not an easy process by any stretch. There have been setbacks, injuries, and downright atrocious performances. Through it all, McDaniels is confident in his process and knows that everything is a process, which remains true in football. While speaking to the media this morning, the Raiders head coach shared some insight into how things are going for the offensive line.

Josh McDaniels gives an update on the Raiders’ O-Line

The fact is, McDaniels is right. Finding his best starting lineup will be a trial by fire. It’s an ever-evolving development that’s been consistently changing since the Hall of Fame game. At one point, Brandon Parker was thought to have been the answer at right tackle. Alex Leatherwood was then given a chance, but that hasn’t worked out well.

Some now believe that Jermaine Eluemunor will be the answer moving forward. Speaking of Parker and Thayer Munford, there was no update on their returns given today by McDaniels. According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, McDaniels said that both Parker and Munford will be back “sooner rather than later.” There’s still time before the Week 1 game with the Los Angeles Chargers, giving McDaniels a few more weeks to figure things out.
