Browns' Brad Childress complimentary of recent offensive line play

Ron Schwane-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress was complimentary of the recent play of the team's offensive line.

The Cleveland Browns have put a lot of focus on their young offense, with rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden and rookie running back Trent Richardson leading the way. But the success of both of those players depends on the play of the offensive line, which seems to be improving.

According to a post on the official team website, offensive coordinator Brad Childress was complimentary of the offensive line. "I just think that they've been a very cohesive group even though there's been some change in there," Childress said. "Typically, your good offensive lines, and I like to believe they're a good offensive line, really play together and congeal together."

The unit only allowed one sack against the Oakland Raiders, and their strong play led Weeden to a Browns rookie record with 364 passing yards.

Nearer the beginning of the season, there was some concern over Joe Thomas, who has consistently been one of, if not the best of the left tackles in the NFL for years. Thomas was struggling early on, but he has led the unit to bigger and better things since those early struggles.
