Chris, you're a good guy, i'm not twisting your words, but you may be a little "wet" on this. Here's some quick examples "right" off the bat.

1. How about the highlight video of Fields TD scramble with defenders penetrating from the left, but with good blocks holding up by 52 and 76 on the right?

2. How about the highlight video of Dobbins TD run untouched right in between 52 and 76 on the right?

3. How about the highlight video of Fields long pass to Olave where the pass blocking by 75 on the left broke down, but stayed strong on the right, so Fields rolled away from pressure to make the throw on the right side.

Here's the highlight link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Bn4Vtyv8yY

This article is so skewed.  It only shows video to the left, not the right.  And also only shows successful video to the left.  How can we draw conclusions from that?

My eyes and gut say the whole O-line is coming along very well, thank you!  If the left tackle Munford is the best on the line, so what?  The left tackle is supposed to be your best, most experienced slob.  And that doesn't mean the other slobs are failing.

Nut, the key phrase missed is "LESS critical."  Sure, there are times it's important for some players.  That's one side of the coin.  And other times, those players prevent better, younger players from playing-- which is often griped about here.  I won't name the names of the linebackers, the safeties, the quarterback, etc.. So please lighten up on the righteous indignation.

Not just Big Ten Michi State; Michigan is also dropping while Ohio State is rising:

"There has been one major shift, though: Michigan and Ohio State have traded places. Due to the combination of head-coaching change and quarterback change, FPI was low on the Buckeyes heading into the season. This appeared to be Michigan's best chance in ages of surpassing its chief rival.

"Alas. After looking merely decent against Middle Tennessee and very shaky in a near loss to Army, the Wolverines have fallen to 15th in FPI, third best in the Big Ten East. Their odds of reaching the College Football Playoff have fallen accordingly, from 41% to 1.4%. Ohio State, meanwhile, plowed through FAU, Cincinnati and Indiana and has risen into the FPI top five. The Buckeyes' title odds have improved from 6% to 44%. One rival goes down 40 percentage points, and the other goes up 38."

Yawn. The rankings are unchanged. 
In fact, the Top 20 teams are all the same, and even in the same positions (except 11 and 12 switched places). 
Clemson received the same 62 1st-place votes and Alabama the same 3 1st-place votes.
Nothing to see here.
