Good afternoon everybody, it's time to make your prediction on how well you think Lamar Holmes will do on Friday. As some of you may know by now, backup left tackle Will Svitek is out for the season with an arm injury. I don't believe it has been made clear as to what kind of arm injury it is, but it must be pretty severe if he's going to be out the whole season.
Now, Holmes is getting a chance to play with at least the second team and perhaps even the first team, however Holmes is but a rookie just a few weeks removed from being cleared to practice with that mysterious foot injury that supposedly nobody knew about.
How well will Holmes do? If he plays with the first team, I think he'll give up a sack and a maybe a hit or two. Not that I don't have faith in him, but it'd be insane to expect a stellar performance from a rookie who hasn't gotten a whole lot of reps.
How well do you think Holmes will do? Will he be a stud and surprise everyone? Or will he make Sam Baker look like an All-Pro? The choice is yours!
