Offensive Line Coach Andy Heck on Eric Fisher: “He’s feeling good right now.”

Offensive line coach Andy Heck was asked what he thought about rookie right tackle, Eric Fisher’s development this year.

“Eric (Fisher) has continued to work every week. He had a couple of setbacks with his bumps and bruises, but I think he’s feeling good right now. He’s put together a couple of good weeks. I really like the way he’s finishing in the run game, and I’ve seen some steady improvement in his pass protection as well.”

That’s high praise, considering Pro Football Focus gave Fisher his highest grade of the season against the Buffalo Bills with a +2.

    Finially a good game, err decent game. Carb wait to see his potential

  • Blake Molina

    The generic eye test for how well an offensive lineman played: Not once do I recall on Sunday making a remark about Eric Fisher getting best so badly that I noticed it. No news is good news. He’ll get there guys

      Funny, that’s exactly what I was thinking after the game. I hadn’t screamed at my tv screen once cursing Fisher. Though I had a few episodes with Hudson and Allen. All in all a much better game by the whole line.

  • Jim Harper

    Most people are way to quick to find fault with Fisher. I don’t think the realize just how difficult it is to switch from LT to RT. He will get there.

      I think some of that comes with being the #1 overall pick. It’s tough for any rookie to live up to that. Good to see the improvement. If the O line can start playing better all the way around, this team is going to be hard to beat.

    The PFF grade of plus 2 was given more for his run blocking than his pass blocking, but, it did show vast improvement. Pass blocking in the NFL usually takes longer to develop. Even Jeff Allen is a far better run blocker than a pass protector.
