Barry Sims has played surprisingly good.
Sims has played unbelievable at LT, he stays in front of his man, and doesn't get bull rushed too badly.
At RT, he stays in front of his man, no problem, but he gets bull rushed like he is on roller skates.
Perhaps the defensive ends on the left side are smaller and they are trying to use their speed rather then strength.
Even at RT, Sims played well against small, quick guys.
If we were on a playoff run, I would want Sims to stay at LT and put Staley at RT. But since we are not, we need to put Staley back at LT to help his development and then find a RT next year by hook or by crook. Sims looks like a great backup left tackle for the near future.
