Is Moffitt in Pete's doghouse?
Tue Jan 01, 2013 9:12 am
  • What's going on with Moffitt?

    Is he injured? Or has he simply lost his starting job?

    Anybody really know?

    TIA

  • My opinion is the opposite of Rob's above ^^^. I think he's in the doghouse for lacking a bit in work ethic.

    I don't know as I don't watch them. What I do know is several people on here mentioned he has said he doesn't like to lift for one thing IIRC. Extend that and it says a bit of a lack of work ethic. It just doesn't make sense to bench the guy for a very raw, green unproven rook unless he's hurt or in the doghouse. I do not rcall any mention of an injury beyond the normal late season nicks. I do hope I'm wrong though.

    I havnt seen anything about that on him but I wouldnt know, but i wouldnt be surprised if he was kidding when he said that, dude loves to joke around. I dont think he'd be on this team if he didnt have work ethic, in all honesty

    and as for sweezy I feel like he has a rediculous amount of upside, and this game was as close to "meaningless" as we'll get for years to come. but what do i know haha

    Definitely hope you're right and definitely hope if that is the case, he's healthy enough to go this week.

  • He retweeted some guy the other day, something like "don't know how NFL athletes can work in an environment where 110% isn't enough", there was some speculation on here about that.

    I have confidence they'll get it worked out, Pete said he was available if needed

  • I'm close to saying we made two busts on offensive line in him and Carpenter, it happens, we will draft more offensive linemen to fill out the needs.

  • I get the feeling that John will be available on Sunday. It's possible that he's in Tom Cable's doghouse, more so than Pete's, but we're going to need him on Sunday. If Sweezy struggles again, it would be nice to have some capable cover.

  • Isnt it an NFL rule that if you're injured at all, especially to the point where you might miss a game, you must be included on the injury report? Because of that, I dont think its an injury.

  • I think we did a lot of things in the last couple games that we won't be doing in the playoffs so that our opponents wouldn't have accurate recent film to study. Starting Sweezy over Moffitt may have been one of those things. Just a theory.

    No, it doesn't.

    Just because someone doesn't like to do something, doesn't mean they are a slacker at it or don't give 100%.

    One of my closest friends pretty much hates his job, yet he shows up everyday on time, works his ass off and does a really good job. No one would ever question his work ethic.

    Maybe Moffit is a slacker, I don't know, but questioning his work ethic just because he doesn't like to lift is a pretty big reach.

    Maybe. Pete did say yesterday that Sweezy is battling for the job with Moffitt and right now he is ahead on the depth chart.

    Not quite. You only need to list a player that misses practice, or is actually under treatment or injured and in danger of missing a game. The normal day to day bruises and stuff don't get reported. Listing smeone on the report can make him a target, so a lot of coaches won't list minor ailments. Belichick is famous for fudging on his injury reports.

    I'd say that depth chart is probably quite fluid, and maybe designed this time of the year to lend to some deception on who's playing in the playoffs. If they think Sweezy is still somewhat a raw, green liability, and plan their game around that, only to find Moffitt there instead, that could be a huge advantage. And they are probably close enough in abilities to allow them to do that.

  • Moffit looks like a potato with toothpicks stuck in him for his limbs. Dude is not built in his upper body compared to Sweezy.

    However, to question his work ethic based on his Real Rob appearances is crazy. If that was the case, then Sherm would have a crappy work ethic as well. I highly doubt both the former and the latter cases.

  • I dont think a lot of you realize that just because you arent first string doesnt mean you are bad.

    We need back up linemen and I am glad that Moffit is our backup, Moffit could start on so many other teams.

    Pete likes young players with promise, he has shown it over the years. Not afraid to start rookies or 2nd year players. Its part of what makes his programs so sustainable.

    I think people are more worried because it's happening the last two games before the playoffs and the results are bad. Hell, when Kaep took over with a handful of games to go, people went nuts. This guy is in there heading into the playoffs. Did I mention that RW got mauled last game?

    The Rams have one of the best pass rushes in the entire league. They played a great game on Sunday. I think we need to give them a little credit, STL was playing like a top 15 maybe even 10 football team at the end of the year and didn't have much trouble playing on the road.

    If this sort of trend continues then there is cause for concern... but good defenses will have good games against us from time to time and it isn't necessarily a lack of production from the O line but just an overall solid gameplan and execution by the other teams D.

  • Well, in PC press conf today he said clearly that Sweezy is at the top of the depth chart and Moffitt will be having to compete for playing time.

    Kinda answers that.

  • Moffit > Sweezy and was a stud his first year. his one problem is that he gets hurt a little easy or should i say is a little too quick to say he has a booboo.

    if your next to a guy like carpenter who is trying to come back from a serious injury and still trying to play you can't look like the soft guy who has a splinter. pete will pull you out.
