Popular choice I suspect.
Bull crap about popular choice.... Synder worked his tale off in the off-season and then had a heck of a training camp to clearly EARN that RT spot.
How about choice C:
Another starter, right tackle Adam Snyder, will not play in that game after suffering a knee injury two days ago against the Raiders. The injury, however, is not serious and Snyder will be listed as day-to-day next week. Singletary said Marvel Smith would be worked into the starting lineup but his back still is not healthy enough for him to take over the position. He said Snyder would be the regular-season starter.
I hate to say it - really do, but I warned all of you "Marvel Smith is the savior of the line" folks. Teams don't cut starting OTs for no reason. Smith will be a back-up to "spot" Snyder. God forbid if they're both injured at the same time. I'm really hoping Alex Boone develops quickly.
