Gabe Carimi is turning out to be a bust. The guy is just bad.
It takes time to develop an offensive tackle I don't care how good he was in college. They aren't instantly consistent and coming off a major injury does not help.
The problem with Gabe is he has been consistent. Consistently bad in pass protection. Im just wondering how long its going to take Mike Tice to do something over there. It isnt helping this offense right now and with the fun part of our schedule coming up having him at RT frightens me.
This was pointed out today while the game was going on. Its almost as if he is regressing. His run blocking which was one of his strengths just looked downright bad today.
Bear fans have no patience with the development of young players. Webb is only in his second year at LT, Carimi is really in his first AND HE IS COMING OFF AN INJURY.
Lines MUST have time together to be really good. We are in as good, if not better, shape with our Oline as is the Pack.
The basic element which we are missing is experience playing together at one position. With three new OL positions this year it will take time to perfect it.
We have been saying this for a while now. Its time to give up this argument. Some of these guys(no surprise) cant start on the offensive line. Its plain and simple. Your playing Houston and the 49ers in back to back weeks. Carimi is showing no signs of improvement. Against those teams its not a good idea to try the " let them figure it out" approach.
I rather not see Jay Cutler dead after JJ Watt runs through our offensive line because of your philosophy.
Here is a fact, not "philosophy", there will be NO changes to the O line this year without an injury.
You can like it, you can hate it. It doesn't matter. That is where we are right now and only coaches without a clue would change a line in the middle of the season when it is both improving and the team is winning.
However, it is amusing to see such propositions.
Well that isnt a fact actually. Its more of an assumption. You know what they say about those dont you?
Just because we are winning doesnt mean there are problems that cant be addressed. Mike Tice did it this year. _________________
