The fact Jack Sears does not start is mind boggling. But why has linebacker Palaie Gaoteote received so little time since he filled in for Cameron Smith?
Gaoteote might start Saturday if John Houston is still hurt. But he also should have played more this season. He can actually hit and play with speed. Unlike some other linebackers. He could obviously play middle to outside too so that makes him even more valuable.
Of course, Clay Helton bottled it. As usual.
