The Preseason.

Is it me or are starters, on all teams, staying in much longer this preseason? It seems like instead of playing for one quarter or a series that the starters are playing at least an entire half; minus a few players (i.e. Portis).

Maybe it's my memory, but I think it's kinda neat (although just as scary!).

On another note, I think this game is critical for our offense. We need to see what Ramsey has. If not, I wouldn't be suprised to see some changes to the starting lineup.

Re: PreSeason.

We have seen some skill positions stay in longer than normal. Ramsey has seen a lot of action, though it hasn't been with other starters all the time.

I think Ramsey will get less than a half tonight. Gibbs has stated he wants to see all three QBs play. Portis will be in for more than a half, I hope.

Do you mean half of the game? I don't think Portis will see it much past a couple of series. Ramsey may see a half if we arnt producing as a first unit.

Less than 31/2 hours to kick off.

Re: PreSeason.

I think it's because there's a lot of rookies and sophomores starting in key positions. Also, quite a few new coaches, def / off coordinators across the league may contribute to it as well. For Skins, it may be due to Gibbs wanting to see how Ramsey will perform with new WRs, O-line's new blocking scheme for Portis etc. As long as there are no injuries, they could use the playing time since we lost couple of training days.

Re: PreSeason.

The 3rd preseason game is typically the big tune up game, starters will play into the second half typically, then in the last preseason game they'll play very little.
