The Z Man is excited about Skins' O-line

Redskins coach Jim Zorn is pleased with what he's seeing from his offensive line during organized team activities, according to Matt Terl's Redskins Blog.

"I think we are better than last year, or coming into last year," said Zorn. "There were a lot more question marks. I'll give you an example, [Chad] Rinehart wasn't ready to accept the full responsibility of what he is already accepting this time. We did move Jon Jansen on, so we do have a clearer picture of the competition at right tackle. We've got legitimate guys working at left tackle to back up Chris Samuels. We've got [Derrick] Dockery in there and he has kept pace with what we were doing last year with Pete Kendall. We are in better shape, no question."

I still think the offensive line is the Redskins' weakest link but at least there are some encouraging signs. Now, if Mike Williams somehow wins that right tackle spot, then you have some problems.
