If healthy, Baker is needed

Postby Emmitt » Wed Oct 23, 2013 2:45 pm

You can make all the jokes you want, but Baker is needed this week. He has familiarity against Abraham, while the other two lineman don't. I have a bad feeling that Holmes would get destroyed by Abraham's speed and then he'll probably fatigue by the third quarter. As bad as Baker has been this year, if he's healthy he could finally start playing like he did in 2012. Hopefully Holmes can move to right tackle, because he's much better than Trueblood.

Holmes was really bad at RT. He has been much better at LT, which is where he played in college. As Pudge suggested, I think that if Baker is healthy, we should move him to RT and see how that works.

Wouldn't mind that all, but I highly doubt the coaching staff does that.

At this point I'd like to see Baker really get healthy. Lets give him one more week; and if the line is so crossed trained put our right guard at right tackle; and let Hawley play right guard.

I'm grasping at straws but my main objective is to really see Baker playing at his best to see what he really has. I agree if Holmes is managing at right tackle lets not screw up anything working(:

Yes Abe could eat Holmes. Give him two non tries then speed rush right around him, or let Holmes grow-up and earn the right tackle position. How much worse could Baker be on the right side??

We got to get "75" out of there!! Don't put him at right tackle that was a brain shortage;
Lets cut him!!
