Even with Wells out again with a 'trunk' injury (what the hell does that even mean?) Allen Barbre can't lock down a guard spot, having once again split time with Daryn "Alphonso Boone Is My Daddy" Colledge at this mornings practice.
This is getting ridiculous. Barbre was touted by McCarthy all offseason as someone who the organization thought was going to make a big jump this year, someone they thought so highly of there was no need to navigate 'the dangerous waters' of free agency, even armed with a stupid amount of cap room and the mother of all catches available for the landing in Alan Faneca.
But instead of naming Barbre the starter, they have fooled around with his splitting time with Colledge, who has pretty much proven that he will be adequate right up until he gets his quarterback killed on one of his horrible, once-per-game lapses in pass protection. Now, they have become overly enamored with a rookie on the right side, but have declared that former right side starter Spitz is too good to be on the bench. So Barbre, even though he has played well throughout camp, and absolutely pummeled people during the Bengals game, sits on the bench while Spitz is doing his best Daryn Colledge impression.
Start Barbre. Let Spitz and Sitton battle it out when Wells comes back. Enough of this.
