I know I won't be starting.
:P



I don't think they'll announce it until right before the game, but it sounds like you won't be seeing a lot of playing time for the stars/starters with the exception of the front lines.

Remember, pre-season's primary objective is to evaluate the newcomers so they can better decide who ends up staying.

LOL! I totally missed the "here" & "hear" correlation. I was thinking he was missing the word "know".

The first pre-season game, I'd say a quarter or less.

Sweet, I hope Tjack lights it up, get defensive coordinators thinking.

If that.
What with the new way of no pads and not hitting, it will be a miracle if they see the field at all.
;D

way to post inside of quotes Marr.... just kiddin...

Do you think they'll play Jackson more than the other starters to see how he can adjust mid-game?

I wish they would, but I'd be surprised if they did.
It just isn't how Childress does things; Jackson didn't get enough snaps in pre-season last year IMO.
The defense was playing pretty well though, if my memory serves me right, might have had something to do with it.

We might be suprised.
Sometimes the Chiller does things that leaves me scratching my bald head.
I am concerned over the lack of hittinging in camp and think that might be a indicator that he won't risk getting anyone of significance hurt.

Look to see Gus get reps in the first half, he needs them as well as JDB in the second half.

Jackson will receive one quarter of action.

I don't like it.
In HS ball, we rarely did hitting drills, working more on technique and skills.
(I played Reciever and Runningback)
well, that worked for abou 2 games untill everyone started getting dinged up because they weren't used to hitting.
Lets hope that doesn't happen here.

Or, perhaps, it's an indicator that there's a new limit on the number of players you can have in training camp and that reducing the amount of hitting and practices in full pads is a smart effort to keep players fresh.
Much like EVERY OTHER TEAM IS DOING.

You know, that is the standard cliche' answer we have been getting but if you really look at it we really had only about 8 or so extra players (pulling that number out of my butt cause I don't have a link).

Is it really that significant that you are missing that many so that you would limit hitting?

Bullshit flag has to be raised here.

My guess is that they know who is gonna start at almost every position.
They also know who is gonna be the primary backup.
They then have to only worry about determining the last 10 guys or so.
Don't need hitting to do that.

End result will be that we don't get dinged in camp or during pre-season games but we will see more fumbles, worse tackling etc because of it, in the first 3 or 4 games.
