Yeah, don't think Matthews got a sack on Anthony that game and that's when Anthony was struggling. No idea but it's probably on the DC if he wants to rotate guys from left to right and vice versa. Almost positive the players have no say on where they line up.
Anyways, Anthony has come along ways this year. Maybe we can give thanks to the Cohn's for calling him out and saying he will be out of the league soon. Anthony was only 20 when we drafted him. He was raw but some didn't get that through their heads and thought he should be elite right away. Now granted I thought with Boone doing so well it could happen in the future where Boone goes to RT and Davis goes to RG. Honestly, I think it would have worked out well but I think it's turned out just as well with Boone at RG and Davis at RT. Both really stepped up.
