One thing that has been really bugging me lately is that the coaches have been limiting what the rookies can do from day 1. Rhodes is only allowed to play on the left side and Patterson is only allowed to play one WR position.
Is it REALLY that hard to move from the left side to the right side? Putting Rhodes on Little instead of Gordon last week really hurt IMO.
Is it REALLY that hard to learn how to play the the slot? I'm not talking about being Wes Welker here, the guy can't learn 10 plays there and be mixed in as the year goes along? I refuse to believe that a person can't learn a few basic routes in the slot so we can run 3-WR sets.
I just don't see what the point of not teaching people something is. Sure, you can simplify things to the point that a rookie feels more comfortable but you also severely limit your options and hurt the flexibility of the team, as well.
Maybe this is just another rant but the inflexible nature of what they've done with Rhodes and Patterson is already hurting the team IMO.
