Sit Down, Mr. Leno!

Sit down, Mr. Leno!

 

Ian Rapport tweet as follows:

Reminder: The Washington Football Team visits with former #Bears OT and FA Charles Leno today, a potential way to fill a big hole on the left side of the line. WFT drafted Samuel Cosmi in the second round, but Leno signing would allow him to sit and learn.
Above, Rapport’s tweet
Sit Down, Mr. Leno!

Every day I wake up for a media that is not obsessed with fantasy stats, roster analysis and draft kings gamblings. By the end of the day the over-testosterone that is what we think our sports fan are of chicken wings beer and hot chicks has ruled over the air waves again, Groundhog Day in the DMV…as another boring day here in the dmv of the same guys with their water cooler and locker room junk. I want a radio show more tuned towards December January and February with WFT including community service projects daily! 

Yet yesterday media on Lucas had gone too far. Rapport disrespected a WFT left tackle, Cornelius Lucas simply because he does not have fantasy numbers or a name (or possible because of his race). Did Rapport get some insiders info from WFT park, maybe. But coaching staffs lie all the time. Lucas is on the outs here it appears!   How?

My argument is if Lucas was white at that stature based upon his merit these few games and his fine PFF numbers (to play the goofy fantasy starship game) he would be penciled in at least for game 1 of our team. Maybe questionable but not considered a big hole at left tackle.

So right on Lucas going to social media.
But here was a media response. Mark Tyler of Hog Havens in ‘Washington Offensive Tackle Cornelius Lucas Is Furious With The Media’ 
writes, “Now, I can see how this would upset Lucas, but the reality of the situation is lashing out on social media is probably not the best way to handle it. IF Leno is signed, there would likely be a competition at left tackle during training camp (which is what every coach desires), and if Lucas wins that competition, he would be afforded the opportunity to hold down left tackle in 2021.”

Blah blah blah blah…this blogger (member of the media ?) is psyched with Lucas’ response because he is right to be!

Did Tyler or Rapport do the research?

Lucas gave up 2 sacks and 1 penalty in 560 snaps. A pff rating of 78.2. While I could not unlock the running blocking rating funding low here I know from other articles it was low. Inverse his passing blocking number must be high. That unit protected Alex Smith last season. Lucas should not be considered a hole yet. Let em play! 

Blogger perspective: last season I was not screaming at the tv for Trent Williams for most any game in the regular season. It was not a glaring hole.

Here is Leno rankings.

Leno pff 74.6, 1066 snaps, 5 sacks, 6 penalties. Similiar production with more durability….

Big hole? I want Jim Lachey numbers and play always. But the GOAT of LT is retired so let’s stop pushing sports business and start playing , “We are family” with players like Shaddiq Charles and Keleke Hudson and even Troy Apeke. Also, Cornelius, he deserves a chance to improve and play better, not worse!
