I think I've come to the conclusion that swapping anyone on our line is stupid. Wragge already had his run last year and lost his job. We've tried Synder at G many times and he is much better at tackle (which isn't saying much). The reality is, the guys we have starting are probably the best we have pure talent wise. I would bet my bottom dollar (last dollar) that at the root of our problems is the OL coaching.
Based on what I've seen.
Snyder > Pashos at RT. Pashos is not improving.
Wragge > Rachal right now at this point in time. Based on past observations.
Yeah, but the same thing could of been said at the middle of last year when they sent in Rachal and he played well above Wragge and everyone was cheering the move like Sing was a genius.
So the question is, is it more productive to let him work through it and keep the continuity or make more changes and start over again? I'm thinking continuity is more important at this time. We are never going to be good if we keep changing everything at ever sign of trouble (OC, QB, OL...you name it)
I guess what I'm saying is it's pretty obvious Wragge is not the future, while Rachal ,though struggling this year, likely is. Just play him and let him learn. I mean we are talking about Wragge as his replacement. It's not like we have the next Larry Allen waiting in the wings. The only way I would change my mind is if coaches see that Chilo really doesn't care, but that is something we really wouldn't know.
