Well, there goes whatever chemistry was developing on the left with Amini.

Amini out Week 1. Looks like that was more the reason we signed Wharton, not because the right side of the line has looked like shit.

damn.

 

i guess in theory this means our line has improved, assuming wharton is an upgrade over silatolu. left side gets stronger, right side stays the same.

and hopefully a much better chemistry

 

interesting

 

I don't see him stating any intentions to pick up another guy for the right side to the media.

The plan for the right side is called "shotgun".

I'm curious if he's still trying to convince himself that Garry Williams is the answer or if the plan is to move Amini.

 

Surely he's not foolish enough to think Wharton is merely depth.

Want to play a fun game? Remove one of those guys and put in a backup.

 

We are a single injury away from being epically bad.

We should have added offensive line depth during the off season.

hmmm. Since the right side is so bad, why don't we just go with

 

Bell - Williams - Kalil - Wharton - Gross

 

Then the right side is a strength.

 

Honestly I don't know why I'm not hired yet.

Have they done such things before?

 

We do nothing = they won't improve the line

We do something = they are fucking up the chemistry

Rivera said he would provide depth and play his natural position on the left.  Also he mentioned that Amini is likely out week 1 so the offensive line was gonna be shaken up anyways.

 

This actually makes MORE sense bc Gross, Wharton, and Kalil are so familiar with each other.  And who knows they could still pick up a right tackle after cuts next week.   I really don't want bell starting but thats probably what will end up happening.

I have a hard time believing he thinks wharton is just depth, maybe when amini comes back he plays RG. As scary as that sounds

Whatever's being discussed in this thread, I predict at some point one perspective will prevail, and when that happens, pantherclaw will come in and automatically assume the minority opinion

we should have had the OL set during the offseason.

 

here's to another slow start.

Well that's a false dichotomy. They could have done something 4 weeks ago, then there would be time for the chemistry to be there.

Rivera said the plan for the right side of the OL is to infect the RT with cooties so the defensive avoids it.

I think they want at least one side to run on.
