I do think that Caserio has to convince Cal that he's trying to win. While he's actually trying to build for the future. It's a difficult line to straddle. It wouldn't be necessary if Cal fully understood what kind of mess he created by letting O'Brien and Easterbunny run amok. But no, better to not upset Baby Huey with the truth.
If he was trying to win, Davis Mills wouldn't have been given the job without competition

Davis Mills is Pep's guy, Pep talked Nick into drafting Mills and giving up 2 draft picks to move up to draft Collins. That's why there was no competition. This is Pep's offense. Where it gets convoluted is Lovie promised his buddy George Warhop a 1st RD pick to take the OL coach job. Not sure how that set with Pep but explains how the Texans drafted an underachieving athletic 34" arm OG. The funny thing is looking back, Culley was right in wanting to keep Tim Kelly and Caserio and Lovie were wrong going with Pep.
True, but Green is playing injured, so I give him a break.

The sentence about keeping Culley/Kelly is true and the entire sentence would be true if Caserio wanted to hire Lovie, which we know isn't true.

Hey Tex-Bull that's what I'm trying to say here which is that teams in a desperate position because they have a dearth of talent need to be especially judicious with their Draft picks so they can somehow acquire talent and build up their roster.
And they got very good talent in Green. Pierce wouldn't have the start he is without Green's run blocking

edit: Just realized this is the Sauce thread and no place for the Green discussion. Mods can you please move appropriate comments?

Do you think that Green deserves more credit than the other members of the Oline for Pierce's success ?

After I posted his leverage problem due to his injury, I'm glad someone watched for it.


Lovie, do you think if maybe you break his right arm before next game, he'll play even better?:toropalm:
Players who sustain injury, but adrenaline is still pumping so they continue playing is way different than playing with known injury after through medical evaluation. This is unfair to Kenyon well being & career while playing him w/injury, will negatively affect the outcome for all parties involved.

What is real scary is that we don't have a backup they feel can play better than our injured rookie. If no further damage is happening, I can see letting him get experience. Kid needs experience and NFL conditioning to get stronger anyway, so year 2 is when we should see a jump if healthy, stronger, and more experienced. I don't worry too much about his confidence. Most rookies take some knocks. If he cannot recover mentally, he wasn't the guy anyway. Should just drive him harder to not get skated around next year. We don't seem real focused on winning anyway as long as they keep trotting out DM
