I agree. Exactly the same points I have been trying to make.
I haven't heard if Tice has decided on who the starting 5 are. I know the fans have guessed at who's the starting oline. With our first regular season game about 9 days away, we've wasted a lot of time setting the line for the year. They could have had the 2012 starting lineup practicing this entire off-season, training camp and pre-season games -- as a unit together. Building on the 2011 experience, in their same positions for another year.
Instead we're still farting around with this at the 11th hour before our games start counting for real. As if the oline wasn't crappy enough to begin with, Tice pulls this "competition" thing. Don't kid your self. Tice has known these player's ability all along (if he didn't, then he's a half wit coach). Why screw around like this?
No wonder we couldn't even run for 1 yard per carry last Friday night. Bunch of bozo's out there trying to run block.
