As for "little to no drop off from Sitton", that is wrong. It is at guard, so it isn't as noticeable, but there was a drop off. Sitton still played as one of the top guards in the NFL, although he missed 5 or 6 games. He gave up 5 pressures. Taylor on the other hand, despite getting more help from Linsley, gave up 28 pressures and lead the team in "bad runs". Lane was healthier and cheaper, so I wouldn't change things, but to say he played at the same level that Sitton did the year before is just ignorant.
