Gotta say, you're very consistent with your campaign for Boone at LT in place of Staley.
I thought Staley bounced back pretty well after a tough night in GB. Can't wait to see how he does against J. Allen in Minn.
LOL...yeah, that was crazy and unexpected. I wanted Boone to start no doubt BUT at LT over Staley. I also wanted L.Davis to battle with Looney/Kilgore (playing very well) then we'd have the most youth, talent and upside at both positions. For instance, if Boone won out against Staley and Kilgore/Looney won out over L.Davis, we could literally have pro bowlers as our backups! Now THAT is some depth!
But maybe moving Boone out to LT periodically (and L.Davis at RG) will ensure they keep their skill sets up (Boone at LT & RG) in case an injury were to happen?
I'll wait for the "old" OL report but superficially watching, Staley/AD/L.Davis...well all of the guys, didn't play as well as the game appeared re: pass protection, perhaps. The focus, again, was passes under 3 seconds and the inside/outside game. Then again, with the winds, it's not like we were going to play shot gun and take shots all day down field (5-step drops).
But I do agree, I think Staley played better overall.
