LT Trey Pipkins

Last week, Trey Pipkins made this list for his effort against the Rams. I didn't think he could possibly play worse vs. San Francisco. He proved me wrong there.

Pipkins led the team with three allowed pressures. While that's not a good stat, it actually doesn't drive home just how bad he was. Pipkins was beaten three other times that didn't technically count as pressures. He was also beat awfully bad for a safety:

Any discussions about Pipkins potentially being the swing tackle have been thoroughly squashed in my opinion. Brenden Jaimes has been thoroughly outclassing him recently. Even though Storm Norton hasn't been playing great, he's certainly been better than #79.

To add insult to injury, he also committed a holding penalty. Staley noted that he wasn't particularly pleased with the performances of either Norton or Pipkins after the game.

I'm not sure how we got here so quickly, yet it's at the point where Pipkins could be a serious cut candidate. He was rough when he came into games during previous seasons, but this version of Pipkins is completely irredeemable. The Sioux Falls "project" is officially a complete and utter failure.
