Curious what retired New England Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia thinks of the team’s O-line play this season?

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald hustled down to Burrillville, Rhode Island, on Tuesday to find out, as Scarnecchia was a guest at Matt Light’s annual Celebrity Shootout.

“They’re trying to build cohesiveness. That’s what they’re trying to do. It’s not an easy thing to do. But it will happen if they’re patient,” Scarnecchia told Guregian. “They’re trying to get guys in the right spots. To do that, it does take time.”

Scarnecchia also expressed support for first-year offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo.

“Dave’s a good coach, a real good coach. Those are good coaches there. They’ll get it right. And the players want to get it right. And it’ll happen,” Scarnecchia told Guregian. “But it’s going to take time.”

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal had more from the event as well.
