He was 4th in the league in penalties (in 12 starts) and got beat routinely....and they were forced to give him help. That isn't great nor extremely well...nor did all that bad play come against Bowers.
Come on bro. The "hate" is largely a product of the extreme homeristc inflation of what he was
Lets forget what Rivera said. Lets forget that by all accounts he did a good job given he was thrust into a starting role without the benefit of playing with the 1s in camp and having an off-season.
He sucks because you said so and he is a just a guy right???
He gave up 5 sacks in 12 starts which was not that many. Sure he had penalties but again that was all part of the learning curve with a rookie thrown into the fire.
He will be much improved this year just because he had 12 starts and has played with the 1s for the better part of the season.
I agree with Rivera in that he will be expected to play this year at a high level whether he starts or rotates in. Either way the only person who thinks he sucks is you. And I take Rivera'a opinion over yours.
