I'm not a huge fan of having a starter at one position being the primary backup for another. If something happened to Kalil, instead of just having to adapt to a new guy at C, the OL would have to adapt to two changes - new C and new RT. That's assuming that Remmers will be the starter at RT.
Unless we change our philosophy, I don't see how it makes sense to keep 6-7 WRs. We rarely go 5 wide and Olsen is always in there on passing downs, so we rarely have more than 3 WRs on the field at a time. If that remains the case, which I almost certainly think it will, keeping 6-7 WRs isn't a good move.
Seems like most are deeply divided on Oher. Some want to disregard any negative and blindly hope he's the answer. Some have already made up their mind that he sucks and we're going to have a turnstile at LT again. We're 4 days into training camp. Calm down folks. Lots of guys are going to have some ups and downs through camp. I want to see some preseason game action before I get too concerned or too excited.
This. Living out here in CO, I used to have access to free Broncos suite tickets for virtually every home game through work. Went to plenty and never once wore any Panthers gear. Didn't even occur to me to do so.
Not sure what y'all are watching or what y'all expected, but Oher won that. He mirrored Alexander perfectly and didn't give up much ground at all despite getting bent back. I like to see a guy get in a bad spot like that and fight through it. That stuff is gonna happen from time to time and you have to be able to react and adjust. That's what Oher did. All of y'all would be fapping over Oher right now if he didn't get his head snapped back. If refs called that as holding there would be flags littering the field on literally every snap.
Well, he got that wish for the 49ers, but he sucked. When you're a borderline NFL player, you can't be too picky. He may have used up his last NFL chance with this little stunt. I know if I was a team he'd be off my list.
Honestly, the more information that comes out on Martin, the more it looks like Incognito was right. The PC police jumped all over that guy for being a bully, but you could see in those texts that came out that he was truly bewildered why a guy he considered his friend would cook up such a tail. Martin was looking for a way out and found his scapegoat. He did the same thing here. He wanted out and instead of just manning up and saying, "Hey, my heart really isn't in this, I'm done. Best of luck to y'all." he cooks up this back injury deal and just like that, another scapegoat. We're just lucky he didn't cook up another bullshit story that could fall back on us.
