Don't see what playing BBR in this game would accomplish. If the O is as dysfunctional as we saw vs. the Eagles, a half of preseason action ain't gonna fix it. And if not as dysfunctional as we believe it to be, then no worries, right?
The Bradford injury serves as reminder that you can screw the entire season in one meaningless game.
I somewhat disagree.
I think they need to take however many series' it takes to get Ben and the O in sync. Most teams don't do much with their starters in the 4th preseason game because they're usually up to speed by that point. To me, this team isn't. Maybe some extra reps get them over the hump and it clicks?
Of course, there's always the risk that in doing so, Pouncey or DeCastro get blown up and roll up on Ben's knee, but to be fair, you could say that about any of the preseason games.
The preseason is for ironing out the kinks. Might take 1 game, might take 4. Keep at it 'til it's at an acceptable level.
Shit, last season it took them all preseason and what, 2 or 3 games in the regular season before they woke the fuck up. Maybe having to suit up and actually play for a quarter or a half of the last preseason game will get their asses in gear.
This team needs some kinda shake up. Enough with the lolleygaggin'...
