And Brock didn't get a chance to start until an injury gave him the opportunity. Its not always so cut and dry and its tough to tell what the specific reasoning was for Goodwin starting over Kilgore and whether or not it had more to do with maintaining stability and the integrity of the OL. Now there's no default guy, so hopefully the best performer, whoever it happens to be, wins out.
This is true. They like to hold on to these guys (Brock, Jerod-Eddie, Ian Williams) and they usually turn out to be solid players.
But the fact that Kilgore wasn't clearly better than Goodwin last year worries me. If this Martin guy is who we think he is, he will start.
