bingo....no shuffling. guys need consistency and time playing together. Murray's shift-by-shift juggling of the lines is all the proof you need NOT to do this. you don't flip a switch and suddenly have chemistry with linemates.

slot Lokti over on the wing, he and Rick have had a little time together in this capacity and personally i thought it looked good at times. they had some very good possession-give n go's between them. both guys play with their heads up and anticipation of what their linemate is going to do, so they can make a pass into a seam. i also like having Lokti play with MR, because he can help mentor him not to mention cover up some of his 'rookie' mistakes on D coverage.
