    I suspect Miami is gonna bring some heat, so might be a good game for Josh to demostrate his improvement under pressure.

    Some examples of the destructive force of McCoy would be good, and the new receivers catching some balls.

    Id keep Caddy off the field and work Ward to see if he has the heart and desire to play this year. I thought he was an underachiever last year.

    Freeman needs to play two full series or the entire first quater…which ever is longer. Joe Flacco played into the 2nd quarter but Freeman can’t? C’mon Raheem. Don’t start the year by making dumbass decisions. Most of our roster is full of guys that are in thier 1st or 2nd year. THEY NEED THIS.

    eric and Jdouble, Sounds like a good plan and would have to agree!

    They don’t have any back up on the O-line. They don’t want to risk the starters thats why Freeman will only play a series.

    Morris only wants Freeman to play with the 1st team? Ok then keep those underachievers on the darn field for the first half. I’m so tired on this pansy crap. This isn’t intermurals – this is the NFL.


    Maybe we should rename them the Tampa Bay Wussies!

    Don’t forget, these games DON’T COUNT!!! I think if I’m gonna put a guy in harms way, it’s gonna be when it’s for real. He gets plenty of reps in practices, he’ll be fine. These games are just for fine tuning and getting a feel for game speed. That’s it. Not playing key players now is not a bad thing. Heck, according to most, it’s not gonna make it harder to win games, some think we’ll win 0-3 anyway, so who really cares if they play more or not, if they play less now they can’t lose more than 16.
