During one preseason football game. Like the previous poster noted the same kind of argument could be made of Mike Brown. I have my gripes against Rivera. But when you look the entirety of the team's depth its clear that Rivera and Gettlemen have a knack for it. Right now what player is #1 on depth doesn't deserve to start? What 2nd string player doesn't deserve to be there? Maybe Harper? Brown is also one, assuming he even is starting over Ginn. But that's it. Is there any coach who 100% nails every offseason depth chart?
Sure, but isn't that what your basically doing by referencing the Boykins potential in the third game third game as justification for keeping him? Using the box score? Our coaches and GM have seen each player through hundreds of combined practice and preseason snaps and have each others differing opinions to factor in. Doesn't mean their call is gospel, but it does mean their basing it off solid amounts of observation and experience.
