Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

Certain Players should not play...Portis, Moss, some of the defensive starters who have no great back-up behind them... if they play I don't want to see themm for more than two or three drives or so...

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I voted for a half but after consideration, I would change it to a quarter. It's a marathon season and an early Thursday game, so about a quarter. Hopefully we can get something going.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

maybe for a series. but i wouldnt be mad if they did play at all. we need to keep everyone healthy for the season, did we just not see our defense hopes for this flash in front of our eyes on sat. taylor could have been done for the season. we need them to focus on the giants not worrying about a preseason game v.s. the jags

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

The starting offensive line should play at least one quarter. They need the work. Key offensive players (Campbell, Portis, Betts, Moss, Randel-El and Cooley) should play until they score, no longer than one quarter. The defense should rest their starters. Emphasis should be placed on basics; blocking, tackling, ...

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I think they should play a series or 2 but no more and I hope they error on the side of caution with any injured players. The game against the Panthers was a nightmare, but no reason to overracted and do something stupid like risk furhter injury to the staters just to make a point.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

There is no point in the guys playing more than a quarter. If they do, they will be playing against 2nd string guys. What does that prove or help?

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I think the starters should see limited action. We squeaked by a terrible Jets team last season after getting dominated by the Pats. The last thing we need is a flat offense against the defending Super Bowl champs.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I said for a few plays/series. The ideal situation would be they get in and get a nice drive going, get some points, and pull them out.

If it's a situation like last week where they can't even keep JC off the ground, get them right outta there.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

They should play the entire first quarter, unless Campbell gets put on his ass too much. Then, they need to pull them out so the first team is not screwed for the season opener. Hopefully, Coach Zorn will right the ship and get this thing back on track.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

If they play a few series/plays do you think they could last the whole season opener game for all 4 quarters? Practice speed & game speed is totally different and if the Carolina game was our "game speed" then we need to play longer because there d-line slaughter our o-line and as a pro bowl o-lineman like Samuels is he should never but shoved into his QB like that. Maybe if it was one play I would probably be like damn Chris but it was the whole game.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I simply would not risk it. Crank up the intensity in practice. We need to start game planning for NY today. Screw this last pre season game.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I voted a few series because our starters need to prove that the Carolina game was an accident. They also need to regain some confidence, especially for our O-line.

But I think that for now, most of our players are still healthy and we shouldn't "attempt the devil" too much.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

Have the offense play until they score a TD....period.

Let the defense play until they get a 3 and out or a turnover...period

Because it might be their last chance at winning for a while?

The two players we lost for the season was in practice so what the difference?
