Rivera says he's sticking with Chandler

Chandler needs to move to RT and put Scott back in at RG... at least we'd get Bell out of the game.

The offensive line was terrible against the Saints, but they have been decent for the most part this season considering all the injuries.

Surprising given reports that Scott was getting healthy.

We discussed a while back how player evaluation and roster management are Rivera's biggest weaknesses as a coach. Unfortunately that doesn't look to have improved :(

 

I feel the same way.

 

I thought, for sure, that with Scott getting healthy he would be an immediate plug in. Apparently not.

 

Rivera seems to like "his guys" (people he sees that may not be the best players, but give it the ol' college try) and not who would be best suited to win us games.

There just not going to make that big of a switch this late in the season unless someone gets injured. Chandler will only move to RT if Bell gets hurt, its just too big of a switch for this point in the season. Should it be done after the season.....definitely, they need to upgrade Bell in the worst of ways.

Agreed.  I mean, why is Rivera even addressing the RG spot, is it because of the possible return of Chris Scott?

 

Either way, I would prefer a comment from the coach on Byron Bell's status - he's been abused far too often.

Fwiw, the run blocking in the Saints game wasn't that bad.  The backs had some decent holes to run through, we just got to far behind to utilize the run game.

Considering he has never played the position, he has done well.

How anyone is complaining about which of our mediocre right guards or tackles will play is beyond me. Would be just shuffling around for kicks at this point.

Someone help me out......are we praising the coaching staff or do we think they are morons and should be fired? 

 

I can't remember which we are supposed to be this week on the Huddle.   We flip flop so many times.
