Gotta give guys time. How many guys have the huddle given up on and they turned out to be solid? Quite a few, just like the Goodsons of the world that everyone was anointing the future after a couple games.

Just a couple weeks ago, according to the huddle, hardy was a bust and CJ was just average. Kuechly was a botched pick after the first couple weeks and TD would never be able to play a full game. You catching my drift??? Give guys time...

Then why is he a fuging starter
When you are a starter, you get evaluated as a starter. Period. We don't get spotted points because we start young guys. Other teams won't go easier on us. We gain nothing by patting ourselves on the back after every loss saying it's okay our guys are just young. One of the huge failures of this franchise is that we consistently try to rely on players who are not remotely ready.

Who should we start instead lol?

The dude has tons of potential and the only way he's gonna learn is getting thrown to the wolves.

I had faith in us picking Silatolu from the start because of the Panthers' history of drafting solid offensive linemen. Byron Bell showed that in 2011 as he stepped right in and did a decent job for us.
With the solid running game we try to have annually, the offensive linemen have always been a focus.. Wharton was starting to get way too expensive for his performance level, so getting someone like Silatolu had been in the cards for some time. In the end, I think he will pay off handsomely.

He got thrown into the wolves. Goes from playing T at D2 to G in the NFL. Needed more time to develop and he's performed pretty well considering circumstances. He's gonna be good.

I don't agree with that comparison. Fua and McClain lose physically and get pushed back. Rarely see that from Amini. He just gets lost with schemes he hasn't seen live before. He'll pick it up. I hope.

A lot of guys wanted to cast Bell aside last year and even during this offseason.

Bell has got better and better, yeah he had a bad game vs the broncos, but people act like the Broncos dont have a feared pass rush..

Amini will get better in time, just like Cam and Luke.

Patience is a virtue.



don't forget Edwards!!!!

I remember that Kalil didn't get a lot of game time his rookie season. And when he did, he was marginal at best. However, after an offseason, he was leaps and bounds better in his sophomore year.

You have to give the young guys on the line time to develop. There is a huge differential in strength and speed between veterans and rookie mostly due to the different training regimen.

He's starting because he's the best of the other available LG's on the team. Says a lot about the depth of the line.

A rookie playing next to a crappy center, who's playing next to a crappy RG! Great things can only come from that...

12 year career, 12 Pro Bowls that is what I'm talking about.

To anyone who doesn't get. It is the dumbasses opinion who I just quoted opinion when Silatolu was drafted. I take it he saw a lot of Midwestern games in LA, so I thought it would be true.

Silatolu will figure it out but I'm suprised we haven't tried him at RG.
