Martin’s lack of playing time wouldn’t be surprising if he hadn’t made plays when he is in the game, getting pulled right afterward, actually. Kirksey may be assignment sure, but he isn’t likely to make a play. He is best suited for backup. Martin needs to start, though he will make mistakes but the upside is promising.

Olivadotti can tutor them full-time and get them ready--they need to be playing. In year 2000, Larry Beightol took two greenhorns, Clifton and Tauscher and started them, giving the Pack one of the best O lines in their history.

I agree. Note that GB is limiting Martin to specific situations. Fans don't know how he will hold up if asked to do the things Kirksey and Barnes are asked to do. That said, Barnes and Kirksey are playing very badly.

Barnes looked good in his first outing, and then DCs found things to exploit. Runyan looked very good in his first, surprise outing and pretty good in his planned second outing. Then he looked worse in his third outing and though there was opportunity for a fourth outing, LaFleur inserted Wagner at RT and moved Turner to guard. I hope that Runyan and the coaches are working on a counter for whatever Chicago's defensive linemen did against Runyan. That's when one knows if an offensive lineman is a player: initial performance, opponents' adjustments, and then see if the young player can make changes to account for and handle defensive adjustments.

Is Sullivan having a sophomore slump or is it being asked to go from playing 350 snaps (with Tramon being the main guy) to playing 750 snaps and having to deal with all situations and opponents?
