Raanan: Expectations are Peart starting at LT Today

GoDeep13 : 10/18/2020 1:15 pm
“The expectation is that rookie LT Andrew Thomas will not start Sunday vs. Washington, per source. Rookie third-round pick Matt Peart will take his spot. We’ll see if it’s a temporary change.“ - Jordan Raanan via Twitter
Peart Starting - ( New Window )
Yep he is

Wow  
Mark from Jersey : 10/18/2020 1:20 pm : link
Surprised
I did not see this one coming!!  
SGMen : 10/18/2020 1:20 pm : link
I have no problem with starting Peart if he is ready and can handle LT. If Thomas ends up being our RT, so be it...though he isn't out there now at RT.

I mean, clearly Thomas has struggled but if Peart can be a quality starting LT, we still did well.
Ideally this would be excellent for us moving forward

With Thomas moving to RaT
Lol

Put him in at RT!

What a disaster by Gettleman  
Justlurking : 10/18/2020 1:24 pm : link
He’s indefensible at this point. Squandered 3 top 6 picks. Just awful.
Something seems weird with this.  
Vin_Cuccs : 10/18/2020 1:25 pm : link
Last minute. I wonder if it is something bigger.

Played 4 games. Relax. I don't disagree DG has made a number of bonehead decisions. But when people don't use hindsight in these discussions, it's ridiculous.

I wouldn't oppose Peart at LT and Thomas at RT if that's how it ends up.

right. If they both start and are productive who cares where they line up?

The point is you had 4 OT candidates to take at 4. He picked the worst one.

I fail to see how potentially wasting the #4 overall pick is "doing well".

Despite the positive reactions to the Thomas pick at the time? Becton had a number of issues. Wills didn't play LT in college. Wirfs is playing RT. And he looked horrible last week.
DG's a LOSER!

Lol yes because we know this based on 5 games...
If Peart showed he’s ready  
Dave on the UWS : 10/18/2020 1:42 pm : link
And Columbo sees him as a better long term prospect at LT then he should start. It’s not where you were drafted, it’s how you perform. Judge has said that from the getgo. It’s not like Thomas is done as a starter.
He looks  
mittenedman : 10/18/2020 1:43 pm : link
much more solid than Thomas. And he's blocking Chase Young.

Mostly played well from what I saw. The one sack wasn't on him.
Look  
Bavaro_the_Mafioso : 10/18/2020 1:44 pm : link
I agree the best players play, but the fact that a #1 draft pick is not contributing is on Gettleman. The guy has been a complete disaster and terrible GM.

Exactly. Hope Peart can play because Thomas has been worse than Ereck Flowers so far.
Wills was ranked higher  
jeff57 : 10/18/2020 1:48 pm : link

We don't know that yet. Heck he has only played 5 games with 1/2 an off-season if that to learn. Thomas can run block, he just needs to learn pass blocking and I get the sense he has the mental tools to do so. My prayer is Thomas takes over RT soon.
Taking anything about this from the Andrew Thomas aspect  
Zeke's Alibi : 10/18/2020 1:48 pm : link
Is retarded. Guy has never played RT before. He needs reps before you can just throw him out there. Fleming is a career swing tackle
Look, the hope is these two  
Dave on the UWS : 10/18/2020 1:49 pm : link
nail down the tackle spots for the next 10 yrs. Peart
Has the look of a natural LT. Columbo must think so too. If he can play, then you have Thomas play RT.

I'm pretty sure he did play some RT in college? I may be wrong but I could swear I read that.

Maybe his freshman year? Regardless that’s 4 years ago
Peart looked decent but desperately needs a year in

Weightroom
Poor performance discipline?  
Mike in Prescott : 10/18/2020 1:59 pm : link
So Thomas is back in. Does that mean we have a HC who is willing to bench a first round draft pick for a quarter as a consequence for poor performance? I love this.

Yes. Over the summer, a BBI poster met Peart in a park in I believe CT. Said he was big but not overly muscular. I think both Peart and Thomas need strong off-season's in both the weight room and with the OL coaches learning technique.
Former NFL TE Logan Paulsen Likes Andrew Thomas  
DCOrange : 10/18/2020 2:06 pm : link
Listened to the pregame radio show here in DC. Paulsen - who is very blount with his opinions on the Redskins and former teammates - had good things to say about Thomas. Basically said that Thomas needs to work on his technique - specifically being prone to "kick stand" position. He went on to say that Thomas will be fine - really likes his athletic ability and with experience will be very solid. This is from a guy who stayed in the NFL for his blocking - and as I said - does not pull punches.

How is this excellent? Gettleman drafted this guy with the 4th pick overall? What does it take for this guy to be fired?

Finding a bookend tackles in 1 and 3rd wouldn’t be excellent? Thomas biggest issue right now is with speed rushers setting up to move inside. Something that would be fixable on the right side of the line.
I do not give a rats ass if Peart ends up as the LT  
George from PA : 10/18/2020 2:59 pm : link
And Thomas the RT....if the OL gets fixed.

I do not care if DG got it wrong in 1st but super right in 3rd...or whoever decided the pick.
No one will care where Thomas was drafted if he's a good starter  
Ten Ton Hammer : 10/18/2020 3:00 pm : link
at RT for years.
Great  
Bavaro_the_Mafioso : 10/18/2020 3:05 pm : link
Now we're excited if we cluster draft and luck into starters.

My sentiments exactly. If Peart is the better LT and Thomas the RT and both are solid starters in 2021, we did well in the draft.
No way he was

1st round picks. But, if Peart earns it he earns it. Jason Peters was a UDFA.

Saquon, Thomas ...who else?

Of course a more rational take would be, if Saquon cannot come back, and Thomas doesn’t develop, then he squandered them
If both Peart and Thomas are long term starters - at either  
PatersonPlank : 10/18/2020 5:44 pm : link
combination of RT/LT, then these picks were a major success.
