I'm not saying that NB is a bad or below average player. I'm saying that he struggled at guard and now he's injured.

I think the "he struggled at guard" stuff is hyperbole.

He was clearly getting in the groove before he got hurt.

So that's what I don't buy.

In terms of them having a contingency, the Rams have a rare thing--2 promising young LOTs on their roster, neither taken above round 3.

That's just a luxury few teams ever have.

They can wait on NB because they have Edwards.

....

It can be true that he was getting in the groove and that he struggled at guard. In fact, PFF validates both views.

Per PFF, he was rated 47/58 guards over his 6 games. His overall rating was 39.9. That's not good. That is struggling. And that is not made up hyperbole.

But they also validate yours and Kromer's view that he was improving.

In his 2nd to last game, his rating had come up into the 50 range which is decent. His last game was rated at 77.5 which is above average.

You like PFF far more than I do. Either way they are not the only word on this. Other places have ranked the Rams OL higher. As a rule, just saying to me personally "PFF says" won't do much. I don't take them as being dead on.

And so yes hyperbole plus a PFF grade does not do it for me.

The entire OL struggled, including the OTs, and when THAT happens, you can never take individual grades as meaning much. It is impossible to look good when the OL as a whole does not cohere. And at that point it's a fallacy to act like we have a bead on individual players. The real issue IMO is that the starting OL did not have live reps AS A UNIT before the season, which means timing was off, they did not quite cohere, and etc. That's a UNIT issue.

As the OL started to steady NB did improve to the point where Kromer was even commenting on it.

He also played well in 2018 when subbing in.

If we disagree on that, fine....let's not just repeat ourselves though. Leave it at disagreeing. I just know I stand by what I said.
