I guess after opening the season with two losses reporters have to ask the question, but there's no logical reason Munchak would bench Jake Locker right now. In my opinion, there's no reason you bench him for performance at any point this year. If you take a guy eighth overall, sit him behind a veteran for a year, then declare him the winner of the starting spot, you're way to invested to turn that ship around. Plus, it ain't like Jake has a running game, good protection or his best WRs to help him out.
Chris Johnson has officially become a laughing stock among many NFL fans and analyst, but I actually applaud his outburst after Sunday's lost. Somebody on this offense needs to address the issues with the run game, and no matter what issues some of them may have with Palmer's scheme, it still comes down to manning up and doing your job. What Johnson said is leadership, IMO. He didn't exclude himself from blame one bit. You might not like it, but it was 100% the right place and time for our highest paid player to say it like it is. Bravo, sir.
Hey, for all of the heat our O-line is taking, at least our QB is enough of a leader not to throw them publicly under the bus.
While you can't pull the plug on guys to fix our offensive problems, Munch and Gray are on thin ice with this safety situation. Robert Johnson has looked shaky at best, and every time he's on the field Griffin has to play a role/position that actually highlights his already glaring weaknesses. Gray has a few games to turn this thing around, or he'll face an all out mutiny among the more astute fans.
The coaches expect to work Washington and Britt into more of the gameplan this Sunday, as both guys are working their way back from injuries.
A note to NFL players: don't respond to critics on social media. You'll never win because you might as well be fighting ghosts.
