Has the decision to cut Bobby Rainey backfired? In my expert opinion yes.
1). Bernard Pierce flat out sucks!
2). Ray Rice is guaranteed at least a suspension.
3). Rainey could have relieved Rice and possibly win us 1 more game and be 9-7 into the playoffs instead of 8-8.
Bernard Pierce is a good player, so don;t know what games you were watching was a solid backup, and was good during our SB run.
Last season Ray Rice was hurt and our O-Line was terrible.
2. Nothing is guaranteed. I expect somewhere from 2 to 4 games but will see.
3. Yes releasing Rainey was a mistake. Ray Rice was like 50% last season and Pierce got hurt too, plus the line so yes it was a mistake to let him go just like Boldin and other mistakes NFL teams make each year.
