Quinn Ojinnaka should not be starting in the NFL. Clearly the Rams coaching staff also believed as much. However as injury-induced misfortune would have it, they were apparently forced into the unenviable position of placing him into a starting role. The Bears game only reinforced what the Rams knew after the pre-season: he is a putrid pass blocker. So, why not take a chance on Jake Scott?
Scott has been described by some "professional" NFL evaluators as a very good pass blocker and a marginal run blocker. Of course, Jeff Fisher is familiar with Scott, which doesn't bode well for him, as Fisher didn't jump to sign him during the regular free agency period, and has yet, to my knowledge, to reach out to him to fill a seemingly pressing need for his current team. All that being said, it seems to me that the team should at least explore the possibility, if they haven't already, as I suspect Seattle's defense might expose Ojinnaka, as the Bears' defense recently did. Scott's name was thrown around on this site a bit at the beginning of the free agency period, and I wanted to get it back into circulation again to see what you all think.
