This Frank Alexander being benched for Wes Horton nonsense needs to cease!  Alexander showed a lot of promise last year.  He plays the run better than Horton and Addison as well as being an excellent combo with Johnson when Hardy slid down during the Nascar package last year.

 

I was livid Sunday watching Addison getting blown off of the ball on the second half running plays.  I forgot that they were letting Addison get a larger workload because of Hardy's illness.  When Horton, Addison, and Fua are in the front seven becomes real pedestrian.  Every big run came when Addison was in the game.

 

Alexander has a good football pedigree and was a steal in later rounds.  He showed great potential his rookie season backing up the flashes that earned him co-defensive player of the year at Oklahoma.  Many on the board thought that this kid could be good enough to let Hardy walk or at least give us more leverage.  Now he isn't even good enough to get a jersey?  Rivera has enough of a sample size of the other two backups and it is time to get this kid on the damn field.

Rivera's doghouse is not a fun place to be.

getting out of Rivera's doghouse is like a blind man finding his way through a complex maze.

It has become quite the Chinese torture camp experience.  There are no signs of getting out, no positive vibes, and no real reason for being placed there.

Gettis

 

He kept Gettis in there until his departure.  If you are an injured WR, you don't get out.  I believe Hixon is going through this at the moment.  Frank lost his cool in the first game, but damn he is a young player.  Hell, Rivera might have cut Smitty for punching a CB if he is this hard on Alexander.  It basically equates to a two game suspension.

Hixon has turned out to be an awful FA pick up. A case could have been made that Hixon should of been cut today and not Armanti.

If Rivera cares about winning he needs to put his ego aside with that sht and put Alexander in the game. I get that Frank deserved to miss playing time but Rivera should care more about his employment at this point.

You know.. this thread sounds like the Josh Norman thread.   You know when the preseason hype was high?   Maybe the reason Alexander isn't playing is because something Alexander isn't doing well?  The doghouse doesn't apply if you play well.  There is probably another reason.
