Welcome to the second annual edition of "Players We Watched," a preseason film review of individual players. The importance of preseason lies not in the final score, but in the performances of individual players, many of whom are fighting for our jobs. Even in those performances, take everything with a grain of salt.
We shouldn't let the small sample size of one preseason game reverse our previous notions of a player, but merely add it to the pile of evidence built up for a player's relatively poor or impressive reputation.
Keeping that in mind, the first player I re-watched when reviewing the Colts' loss to the Bills was the entire first-team offensive line, which received mixed reactions from fans. Personally, my initial reaction when watching the game in real-time was largely negative, especially for the interior line. But what would a closer look at the film say?
