Williams will start Week 1 guarantee it. Your fan logic doesn't apply to football.

wharton must have fallen off in the skillz dept. more than we're assuming then... no way wharton is a backup if he's a better player than williams.

 

He's coming off an ACL. He's an older guy that didn't go to camp. He's probably not healthy enough to play every down and he probably hasn't learned the RG responsibilities. This isn't Madden, you don't just plug in the highest overall rating.

Wharton needs to play LG, none of this by committee crap

Wharton is a bandaid /depth for if poo gets bad

Starting him at LG means you pretty much are giving up on Amini

I meant to say if amini doesn't play, if amini sits out don't run LG by committee. It's just stupid

Wharton probably isn't in shape to play 4 quarters of real football. Last real game he played was back when he was a panther and he didn't participate in camp and just saw a few reps in one preseason game

Yeah that could be it, but I guess we'll find out soon. Well see the injury report and find out if amini can play

But aminis preseason play has been so troubling, I hope he can start playing like he did late last year. We need better play from him

Folkerts being on the roster in response to the Byers injury along with contracts not being guaranteed after week 1 essentially confirms we'll likely make a move, just probably not this week. You just don't keep 3 C's on your roster with the rest of the OL in the state its in, especially when center is the one position on your line that is as set as it is. There's also that open PS spot remaining as well where Folkerts could possibly end up.

 

Lol at Rivera if he's content to stick to his guys with the line in the shape it's in. If amini is back then it's time to start getting Wharton acclimated to either spot on the right side of the line. (not that amini's play this preseason gives me any resounding confidence in him)

Person said Amini didn't do too much in practice today. Doesn't look good.

He looked very good vs Pittsburgh. I know he played against a lot of back ups, but coming off an ACK and a whole year away I was pleasantly surprised.
