Rivera says he's sticking with Chandler

I think this just furthers the point that we need to find a quality RT, and maybe even RG, next season.

Chandler has only been a guard a short while.  He still has to ask Kalil who's he supposed to block most of time time.  And you want to move him to RT?  

 

Are ya'll nuts?

 

He may have better physical tools than Bell but that doesn't mean snot if you don't know what you're supposed to doing.  Bell is sadly the best option we have at the present time.  Hopefully, RT is the linemen we need to upgrade the most (assuming Gross comes back).

 

With Chandler, Wharton, Ameni, and Kugbila I think we're OK at Guard.  Maybe keep Wharton at LG and move Ameni over.  He was coming into his own nicely before he got hurt.  

 

Gross - Wharton - Kalil - Ameni - ????

 

Bell - Scott - and that one huddler that's trying out can be backups.

Cam has already matched his sack total from last year and it would be much MORE if he didn't have the ability to get out of them. This is ridiculous, he is sacked 10.5 percent of our offensive plays which leads the league.

RR should be applauded for what he has achieved this year with smoke and mirrors substituting for talent in several key positions.

 

In this particular case "the answer" is definately not on our roster.

For what it's worth, Chandler got his first green PFF grade as a starter vs. the Saints, positive in both pass and run blocking.

 

I also find it hilarious that we, message board fans, can matter-of-factly state that our coaches lack player evaluation skills when we're judging the results based off of a 3 hour game and our extremely limited concepts of responsibilities within the schemes.

I like Chandler as a guy we can keep behind an eventual starter but he's fine right now for what we are working with.  

 

We need an RT who can legit pass block.  Bell is just not NFL caliber and is this year's Naka.

I have never even coached even pee wee football......but I can tell you Jimmy Clausen sucks as a NFL QB and Tom Brady is great. Extremes are easy.

Bell's pass protection is an extreme. Gettlemen won't have him here next year. He is here now bc Gettlemen didn't touch this O with Ron having such questionable status

Every time Cam gets sacked, my 4 year old yells, "Bell, you big dummy!"  

 

even a 4 year old can see what is happening.

I never said Bell was great. But criticizing the coach's player evaluation skills because he is still playing Bell assumes there is someone better on the roster, which is Gettleman's responsibility.

We will be picking pretty low in the draft spot  in the 1st round and the value of OL would be a good option.

1st round= RG -  Gabe Jackson  6'3" 340lbs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydrgJ0V1xY4

 

STARTERS: LT- (Gross) / LG-(Amini) / C-(Kalil) / RG-(Jackson) / RT- (BELL)

 

BACKUPS: LT-(chandler) / LG-(Wharton) / C-(Byers) / RG-(Kugbila) RT-(William)

I don't have the updated numbers, but Ken said that Bell was 21st or so in the league right after the Saints game. So, assuming those stats weren't updated, yeah, he's close to the bottom 10% in the league.

The statement made claimed he was the worst. Not close to the bottom.
