I expect a couple series out of Fitz and the starters - maybe longer - I'm guessing Ron just wants to see them get in a rhythm and go on a scoring drive - then next week they'll stay in for a quarter+ and week 3 stay in for 2-3 quarters.

Ron needs time to let the starters gel, while also giving enough time to evaluate the backups.

Only thing I'm looking for is no major injuries.

From the day he was signed Humphries was penciled in as the starting slot WR. Either way I wouldn't get too worked up about the first depth chart.

There has been a lot made of Fitz and Humphries connection and how they are on the same page in situational football/ reading defense and leverage.

Defensive end Montez Sweat said he and Chase Young want to break the sack record for a pass-rush tandem. In 1989...

Awesome! Besides having incredible talent, both are seriously driven. Love these dudes. Both can have monster years/careers.

Well let's see, he's white, and a wide receiver.

On a Belichick led football team, that wouldn't just be a starter, he'd be penciled in for a Pro Bowl year.

The guy is so likable ...
So rude and uncalled for, Jason Garrett needs to slug Riverboat Ron right in the mouth next time we play them.

You triflin' with the red rocket's reputation here, he can't be soft about it.

Re: WFT 2021 Pre-Season Games Thread

One think I didn't really noticed at first is Wes Schweitzer being the starting LG over Flowers... I'm quite surprised, Schweitzer was a nice surprise last year, but I thought Flowers was going to get the job. We'll see, but early surprise for me.

Not that I think Humphries is a stud but the next man up behind him on the depth chart is Sims Jr so…..

Re: WFT 2021 Pre-Season Games Thread

Question is who has done anything so far to be named starter ahead of Humpy?

I don’t know if I can go another year of Sims Jr returning punts.

He's a disaster back there. And he was a big disappointment overall last year. I know he's having a good camp so maybe he can bounce back.
