That's why Rainey was a fifth round pick....
Rainey's almost identical in size to Wes Welker. He really should get consideration at WR. No way should he be running between the tackles. Although he has a lot of experience.

I'd like to see what Rainey could do if we had an OLine that could keep our RBs clean and get him a hole. We should be sneaking Rainey behind a pulling DD for some huge gains.
I'd love to have Chan doing whatever for us. Heck, he could be an assistant HC to help Tomlin out. I think he's the offensive equivalent of DL on Defense. I'm not sure Tomlin's had anyone to really tutor him on that side of the ball in his career.
Wasn't Chan BC's recommendation for his replacement. I think Cowher generally did a good job picking good assistant coaches. Couple of gaffes. But Chan was one of his good ones.
Yeah, we need Gailey to be Asst. HC because his record as a HC is so good

Agree. Need to make LBs try to chase Rainey not have him run right at them. Reality is though he is more a slot receiver than RB. Team just needs to use him that way and forget the RB nonsense.
