Reading how some are writing off Ricki Stanzi before he even get's a chance from Reid and Associates. Just Wow! Yeah I know he might never amount to something, but he MIGHT Yet. Yeah, that's right, it is possible. This team has a few player's that still need to develop, but are on the roster for a reason. Having 2 coaches retained is a big deal as the are experienced with this roster. Remember Coach Andy (we really have to get a nickname for him) has stated in an interveiw that this team needs coached up. That could mean there could be a player getting ready to break in the line-up. You have already seen a FA QB brought in for a tryout, so don't expect Stanzi to get a pass, but hell yes, allowed to compete for a spot.
So instead of writing off some of our player's who haven't broken into the line-up just yet, I would rather write off a few of Scotty's boys who I don't think should be on the roster. I mean COME ON MAN, having to see former fifth round pick play as a starter has frosted my nut-sack since he first missed an important tackle. Seeing him in coverage, where he is almost guaranteed to be out of position due to lack of speed, and how all those deep balls get by our corners cause there ain't ANY over-the-top coverage from our slow safety because Pioli wanted to vindicate his drafting prowess just blows man. BLOWS!
Then you have a pickup in Andy Studebaker who has never lived up to his hype, only being a Special Team guy. Come On Man! Talk about another ego boost for the old GM, takes a guy off the Eagles practice squad and hasn't been near good enough to break into the line-up, and sucks when called to appear when an injury has occurred, he has to go too. Like Lewis, another BLOWN personnel decision. Bad decisions that we have to get away from.
So while I understand the disappointment that Stanzi has attached to him at this time, I think we let him get some chances with Reid and see what he can do. Some of these other guys, we have seen what they can do! If you want to get to the playoffs you have to have talent as you cannot hide lack of it in the big games of the post season. When we see the roster upgraded with more and better talent is when we can actually guage what Clark has done this New Year! GO CHIEF''S!!!!
