    Ridiculous that that no talent bum started of Frye, or White, or Scott Jackson, or a one-legged dog!

    I notice that White replace early in the game. Total suckage exuberate from Studdard. Not really cut worthy though.

    So White replace Studdard at LG not Myers at C? First time I heard White was on his false start.

    Yeah Simms or the other commentator what's his name called it incorrectly when they said White was in at center.

    They have the same body type, athletic ability, and understanding of defense. Maybe we can't swap and have Studdard coordinate the defense and Smith can get pushed around by DTs.

    I dunno if White replaced Studdard at guard or Myers at center ?
    But Studdards play demonstrates a player can only go so far in the NFL
    based upon his credentials as a baby-sitter.

    Studdard played on the first series and White played on the second and third series. They alternated series after that. I think the plan was to alternate them throughout, but White played two in a row because his first series was a three-and-out.

    The first TD drive was where Studdard struggled the most. Thankfully, the guy who committed most of the Studdard-abuse was Chris Canty, an old friend of Schaub's from UVA (they played together for 4 years). Looked to me like Canty was being relatively gentle with his old buddy once he got by Studdard. On one play, Canty had a clean shot at Matt but chose to try to deflect the pass instead of laying the lick (Matt got the ball off to Walter for a first down). I shudder to think what Haynesworth would have done had he gotten similarly clean looks at our QB.

    Get well soon, Chester. We really need you.

    He's not the type of guard that would work in this scheme. If we're going to bring someone new in for a backup type of position, I'll leave it to Gibbs and Smith to find the right guy.

    I like him, too.

    When he makes his blocks and doesn't almost get people killed like when he totally ole's his assignments or when he gets confuzzled on what his assignments are. He owes Slaton a couple of apologies.
