I kinda saw this coming after seeing Naanee play after it was reported that Lafell would start over him due to injury. RR don't want to come outright and say that he was wrong. But he had to continue to play Naanee to get to this point and remove any and all uncertainty.
Why is it hard to understand that the situation has changed a dozen weeks into the season?
Rivera said that Naanee was needed to help the offense run smoothly on the field until the other players were able to do it on their own. Considering the number of new players to the system, not to mention the youth at certain key positions, it's no surprise that we went with Naanee early.
