They're not going to score the touchdowns and they won't get any points for your fantasy team, but if you overlook the big guys with the high numbers on their jerseys, you're missing a big part of the game of football.
The offensive line makes it all go.
As teams get set for another year of Thanksgiving football, we're giving the often under-appreciated big fellas a pat on the back. They certainly deserve it.
Our "In the Trenches" stories highlight the offensive lines of each of our teams in Warwick and Cranston, from the new unit living up to a trenches tradition to an improving group of undersized linemen to a quintet that paves the way for some serious running. They all bring something special to the table.
We've also got rosters, results and the return of "Talkin' Turkey" to the team pages, plus game previews and plenty of history.
It'll be another fun year on Turkey Day gridirons - with potential series-ending games in Warwick plus playoff implications in Cranston. Enjoy the action, and happy Thanksgiving.
