Poll: How Was the Right Tackle Situation Against Indy?

The Cleveland Browns just picked up their first victory over the season against the Indianapolis Colts, and quarterback Colt McCoy survived Indianapolis' defensive end duo of Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis.

A huge concern heading into the came was how the right tackle situation would pan out for the Browns. They were set to go with a rotation of Artis Hicks and Oniel Cousins again, but Cousins saw most of the action after the first quarter. Head coach Pat Shurmur explains his take on how things went down at the position:

"I think they both played about the way we expected them to," Shurmur said. "Oniel is probably bigger and more physical, and Artis is probably a little quicker on his feet. They both showed up in a way we thought. Neither one of them probably played much better than the other, but I feel good about the progress they're making."

McCoy was sacked once during the game, but that actually came from Joe Thomas' side early in the game. Mathis was limited to just one quarterback hit for the entire game. The stats don't tell everything though, because disruption from the right side of the line can hurry throws or hurt the running game. Let us know what you saw Sunday from the right tackle position -- was it "good enough" to make you feel any more comfortable at the position?
