Am I the only person worried about Amini Silatolu?

Recommended Posts

I see all the complaints about Garry Williams on here as of late.  However I don't see the same concern about Amini.  I mean he improved but he went from atrocious to just bad.  I'm probably missing something so can someone fill me in on why there isn't just as much concern for Amini as Gary Williams?

I think Amini is gonna be a beast this year.

Not worried about the Tongan Terror. Not even in the slightest.

He was a rookie that basically played glorified high school football for college football and was thrusted into a terrible offensive line situation. What did you expect from him?

There are very few offensive lineman that succeed right from the beginning.

He's looked great in practice and Kalil had nothing but high remarks for Silatolu saying that he thinks that Amini could have a pro bowl year.

He struggled at first but made big strides towards the end of last year and playing without Ryan Kalil certainly didn't help him any. We really just need to get these guys into game sitautions (aka preseason) to really see how they're doing before we start to worry.

Concerned about the OL as a unit?  Yeah.

 

About Silatolu in particular?  Not yet.

He was pretty solid toward the end of the season last year and camp reports this year have been positive. I'm far more concerned about the right side of the OL. Even if Silatolu isn't great, playing between Kalil and gross will help him a lot. When you combine below average RG with below average RT, that's cause for concern.

If you read the training camp recaps from the various posters here they said that silatolu looked really solid especially compared to last year. I suggest you re-read some of those threads.

he was a rookie and they all look like they are on roller skates, but he finished off the season not bad like you say, but respectable. 

 

he'll be more  than fine this year, esp. with gross and kalil on eiither side. that side of the line i have no worries about.

he is the last person I am worried about on the o-line.

 

Get what you're wanting to say, but are you really more worried about Kalil and Gross than Silatolu?

honestly yes. Kalil from the injury, and Gross because of his age and decline. I think both will be fine though.

 

I have studied amini more than anybody from last year. It was night and day how he progressed. Second level, absolute monster. He was able to just play instead of think. physical tools are off the charts, it was mental in the first half of the season.

 

Him coming back to camp fit as can be, stronger and hearing the vets praise him makes him the least worrisome on the line to me.
