This season, it just seems like Goody is not on the top of his game. Although I never thought much of Goodwin besides being an average center in terms of blocking, he doesn't appear to be taking care of business this year. Granted the only time I notice Goodwin is when a mistake is made and he could be very well doing well the other times. But the one play that did it for me in the Cardinals game was the sack he gave up. On this play, two ILBs blitzed right up the middle and he decided for some reason not to pick one of them up! Now I will say we don't know for sure what the assignments were but I just have a hard time believing if two Linebackers blitz right up the gut, the center isn't supposed to pick at least one up. If that's the case that isn't a mistake a Veteran such as Goodwin should be making.
Kilgore seemed to perform well during the preseason but 1.) its the preseason when linemen are just not putting out 100% effort and 2.) the centers job on top of blocking is controlling the OLINE, essentially being the QB of the line and maybe Kilgore isn't quite ready to assume that responsibility. But maybe he can.
