Not true. Rolston did rotate them for October and into November. Mac had back to back starts on Nov 11th and 12th and may have had more if he had not been recalled on the 14th (he was only 3-4-1 at that point). Mac was returned December 1st (did not start the 2nd) and went on to start the next 4 games and 10 of the next 14 and went 3-4-3. At the start of 2012 MacIntyre was 6-7-3 while Leggio was 9-6-2. At that point Rolston started playing Leggio nearly every game.

If you want to criticize Rolston for not holding players accountable, fine. But when you criticize the way he handed MacIntyre, you'll be talking out of both sides of your mouth.
