Default ? on OL waldrop and rodgers

Those of you in the know pls explain/expound.
My understanding is in direct competition with fellow Ol Waldrop earned the #1 center job in preseason and that rodgers very nearly won the #1 RG job finishing a clear #2 .
The starter at RG suffered his most recent injury.

When circumstances required staff choose a second individual to start at RG why didn't staff choose the player who, according to that same staff, ws #2 at the position?? Staff's moving Waldrop from center to RG demonstrated staff has no issue moving players across position thus Rodgers current listing at RT doesn't preclude him.

They instead moved Waldrop, who according to them, had earned the #1 center job, so be it.
Once staff determined Waldrop was not a good fit out of position at RG then why did they not return him to the #1 center job that , according to them, he had earned and what led Staff to pass on Rodgers a second time (third guy)for the RG job given they themselves determined he, Rodgers, was second in line for the position and #1 is injured?

It seems staff evaluatiing practice etc and stating a player hs earned a position then removing the player prior to the player actually taking any snaps at the position would undermine the confidence players have in thier standing with staff.
those of you who know pls explain the specifics underlying staffs choices in these two positions. thanks in advance wvp

Naty has been at Tackle all of 2014. He has not taken a single snap as a Guard in 2014 including spring.

Default Re: ? on OL waldrop and rodgers

Waldrop didn't get considered at center this week do to his poor performance and lack of intensity in the last game.

That would exclude him from starting at center. As for the question of why the issues with the rg spot, I can't exactly answer that except for that maybe sport has really picked it up at practice lately. That was another thing concerning the center position as well, Elliott said at times that if Knott had been healthy all fall then he might have won the center job all along.
