I'm sorry, but you're uninformed here. Yes, Carimi sucks at RT. His pass pro was abysmal. However, in his time at RG, it was better. At both positions, he was among the best in the NFL in run blocking. The man clearly has a future at RG if he doesn't turn it around at RT. John Scott did not stabilize the position. His pass pro was barely better and his run blocking was nonexistent. He was actually a net loss for the Bears. I expect that he will not be offered a contract this offseason. RT is very much a need, as the Bears don't have one.
Carimi was benched at RG as well.
In fact he was benched at 2 different positions and while he was a solid run blocker he was an abysmal pass protector and the Bears are going to a west coast offense which requires pass protection.
And the health arguement is moot as well it has been 16 months since he was injured.
He is what he is and that is not any good.
