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.

It clearly has considering our current RB situation and how well he has done. We tried to get to cute and slip him past waivers to the PS. Stupid move.

So where was your expert opinion before last season? any fool can look back and say "Hey that picked sucked" nobody knew the wheels would fall off the oline and Rice would bust up his girl.

You're kidding yourself if you think Rainey was the difference between the playoffs or not.  No RB was going to do anything behind our putrid OL last year.

You lost me at Bernard Pierce sucks. Go throw on his 2012 tape running behind a real offensive line and then come back and say he sucks. He might be a little injury prone, but he is a great runner.

I wasnt going to fisnish reading what he typed past Pierce sucks until I read what your reply.

So Rainey was going to turn chicken crap into chicken salad? The only people I think who might've saved us were either KO or Pitta.

Uh, no.

 

Rainey only had three good games, too, and they came against mediocre defenses. He only averaged 3.9 a carry and like 50 a game. Pass.

Rainey hasn't done really anything. Pierce is way more talented than him and could be a beast behind a halfway decent line.

I hate to be the guy with the annoying questions...but....

 

Exactly what makes you an expert ? Is it years of scouting these players in college ? Your HOF career playing in the NFL ? You invaluable experience as a front office personnel ? 

 

Orrrr.......

 

Years of playing madden, Watching you tube clips, or you're apparent ability at sound logic and decision making ?

Boom, that's all that needs to be said. They thought nobody saw all the plays he made in the preseason and they were sorely mistaken. Not saying Rainey is a pro bowler by any means, but would have been a nice option.

I want to know what qualifies you to have an expert opinion

Rainey had like one or two stellar games and a few, if not several, absolute garbage games

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.

Uh, we weren't the only team that cut Rainey last year. Maybe he really isn't "all that".

It wasn't a smart decision but there are as always several factors in play that we don't see, I mean how do you propose we get Rainey back? its done and theres no point looking back.

I agree it was a mistake to cut him.  I disagree with just about everything else the OP stated.  

 

You can't call his release backfiring on us.  It's the same thing with the Boldin trade.  They took a calculated risk based on some educated guess.  There is no crystal ball and no one could see that Pitta and Jacoby would be injured nor could they know that neither stud running back would be healthy for much of the season.  

 

Also don;t forget that they had their coaching muddle in the run game which contribute to their putrid performance.  Given that i doubt Rainey woould've been as successful filling in here as he was in Tampa.  .
