From his presser: (on Chester Pitts playing tackle) Chester is going to stay at guard. Chester needs to play guard well for us if were going to win. Hes in a battle right now to start with (G Seth) McKinney and (G Fred) Weary. He has to continue to get better as a guard for our football team. I dont see him going out there. If anything else, you may see (T) Ephraim (Salaam) getting a few reps at left tackle. You may see (T Eric) Winston at left tackle. The experimental stage is over. We have to stand pat, and we have to get better at what were doing. (on the starting guards) Yes, I think we have three starting guards with him (Chester Pitts), (G Fred) Weary and Steve McKinney. Between those three, two of them are going to start on opening day. Thats a competition, I think Ive said that since day one. Chester has done a good job, he did some things better this week, he has to continue to get better for us. Who those two out of three will be, I dont know. I think theres two starters there, but they only let you line up with two on opening day. Who those two will be, well wait and see. (on Fred Wearys play last night) He played well again, but its very much expected because thats the way hes practicing. He has played well, and he was solid once again. With Chester , dont get me wrong, but he was better this week than he was last week, but theres still some more stuff to take. He can play better. (on Steve McKinneys injury) He twisted his ankle pretty good about a week and a half ago. He struggled with that and came back. He had a slight groin pull on Wednesday or Thursday of last week. Had it been a regular season game he would have played. We made that decision Friday night to hold him because we think it would have set him back. He will play a ton this week. Hell make up all his reps and all that time this week, so its just a hard decision not to press the issue. Is it possible Pitts won't be the starter come the 1st of the season? I think its interesting given some of the heat I have taken since I've been critical of Pitts. I hope he does get better as Kubiak wants. I simply think he has been a bigger problem than most people understand or think and I think Kubiak is eluding to that. Pitts is in a competitive match with Weary and McKinney. I find that interesting. I still firmly believe Pitts belongs on the right side of the line, but I'm certainly not going to argue with Kubiak and Sherman. What I see, however, is a recognition that he may have started 4 years like Carr, but he too has some things to learn. Its also interesting another also ran - Weary - has caught the eye of this staff. Apparently they saw things on tape that they liked. I believe Pitts, just like Carr, is a product of the previous coaching staff. I don't think they did him any favors just like the rest of the players.
