OFFENSE

The general consensus is Josh Rosen is a strength and the offensive line is a concern. Do you think Rosen is getting overhyped? Do you think the offensive line is being underhyped?

I think Rosen is being fairly hyped. He is so critical to this team for so many reasons. And the fact that he’s one of the few returning starting quarterbacks in the conference just magnifies how much of a strength he is.

I think the concerns about the offensive line are valid in that the team has questions at all three interior spots. That has to be a concern, especially when you have golden-armed Rosen standing back there and you’ve also stated a commitment to the running game. On the other hand, something that goes under the radar a little bit is who they have in those spots. It’s not like they’re freshmen or redshirt freshmen. Scott Quessenberry is a fourth-year junior. Kenny Lacy is a fourth-year junior. Poasi Moala is a fourth-year junior. They’ve been around the block and I think the starters are ready for their moments. I would be mostly concerned about the backups. It’s a very muddled situation back there. A lot of the players say they have depth, but like I’ve previously written this week, bodies do not equal depth.
