Gettis has earned his shot to start but he has to practice like he wants to be that third receiver. I almost believe he is getting so much playing time because his work ethic or production may be a weakness of his. His game time production cannot be denied though. Our receivers will go as the offensive line goes.
Cam without time equals zero confidence which causes him to force throws and look relatively mediocre. If he can get some protection I believe that Gettis will help us out if we are still going to run a vertical attack. That being said, I'm not as optimistic about our oline and am even more worried about a good defensive team being able to exploit it. If the offensive line shows up like they did in our first game against Tampa last year, we start 0-1 and maybe continue down the beaten path.
Is it Riveras fault? Not at all, but he will pay for it. We need to pick up a vet that can still play because Bell isn't getting any better and neither is Gary. One cannot use the argument that Cam wasn't sacked THAT much last season compared to other QBs, simply because Cam is that mobile and finds ways to get rid of the ball.
