Maybe it’s pure coincidence, but I can remember when starters played about 6 quarters of the preseason games. 1 in the first, 2 in the 2nd and about 3 spread over the remaining 2 games. I believe players need to play real games to be mentally and physically ready to go. It’s more telling with the expanded rosters all the way through meaning less reps in the already abbreviated practices. Maybe some teams have figured this out but I think Dabs and staff already have 1 big work item for next years off season. Now with that behind us, let’s get ready for week 2.
