Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I voted no, but mot because I'm scared of injuries. I would make the starters be chomping at the bit to get out on the field and redeem themselves. I want that bad taste in their mouth until we play NY.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I voted for a series, or two. You can't remove Saturday's memories by keeping them in longer. They will have to do that for themselves, and in the games that count. I would get our borderline players out on the field against the better Jags players hopefully it will be the last they see of the field until the offseason. We want to make sure that we keep the right 53 guys, we know who will be starting.

I voted on a quarter but the 3rd preseason game (4th for us) is usually the 'dress rehearsal' and I bet they don't play at all against the Jags and eventhough they looked bad in Carolina they could look worse in NY if they lose anyone else.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I think that a quarter should be enough, obviously it would depend on what they do. I know that the players think that they don't need to play much, but seriously, the way that they played on Saturday was totally apathetic and they really didn't battle for their coaches on gameday. They were supposed to look great and show what they knew after 39 days of two a days. They really showed that they didn't know a whole lot and I think that they were resting on their laurels of the preseason to that point. IMO, they need to show at least one strong quarter this Thursday to show me what they know.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

I say no time at all...the skins seem to be cursed by the injury bug every year. If Cooley or campbell or one of our starters goes down, we will be all kicking ourselves and being like...THAT WAS THE STUPIDEST DECISION EVER.
I do agree the offense is lacking. But, i think so many players (esp on the offensive line)
were playing scared. Playing not to get hurt. When you have 7 out of 11 guys on the field playing cautious, nothing good can happen from that.

Re: Should The Starters Play Against Jacksonville?

What bothers me is that Zorn is playing the offense, while Blache is letting the defense fume....is this 2 separate teams or 1?

What the heck?

I like it.

The offense needs to find a groove and take something... anything positive out of Thursday's game.

The defense should be better suited if they sit and stew on that lousy performance.

Defenses thrive on rest - I think it's reasonable to them differently from the offense.

When has Zorn said anything about "trying to win" against Jax??

All he wants to see is something positive, even if it's just one drive. I don't think that's overreacting at all.

I think Mosley is the one overreacting here, but I guess he needs something to write about.

Excellent point. I'll take a well-rested LB with a chip on his shoulder over a less-rested LB who has had a chance to "prove" himself.
