It's not the deal, it's the insistence on giving projects like Chandler and Bell chance after chance while our QB gets lit up. Meanwhile we've got guys like Remmers just sitting around waiting for an opportunity. I can only hope that our FO has learned from that after this season.
rivera is the one setting the depth chart though
remmers was brought in midseason anyway. even though he's proving that he deserves to start right now you still have to take in to account that he'd need at least a week or two of practice to get familiar with the offense. if you want an example of a superior talent making sure the bench stayed tethered to planet earth while guys ahead of him on the depth chart got their asses kicked then norwell is your guy.
