Shaky Lamar Holmes an improvement over Sam Baker?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) Lamar Holmes will start at left tackle Monday night in place of Sam Baker, and that might sound like bad news for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. In 248 snaps on both the right and left side, Holmes has given up two sacks, five quarterback hits and 17 hurries, according to Pro Football Focus.
The website rates Holmes, who's committed two penalties, seventh-worst out of 71 NFL tackles. However, Baker is actually the worst-rated tackle this season. In 140 snaps, he's allowed a sack, six hits and 10 hurries while committing three penalties.
Baker is inactive with a knee injury.
