View Full Version : Chiefs Should the Chiefs rest the #1s the next two games?

New England has the right idea I think. Cassell is just too important to risk getting hurt. Stanzi and Quinn need more reps. This goes for the other starters too not just the QB, we DEFINITELY do NOT want a repeat of last year.

If the QB doesn't get hit, he won't get hurt.

As far as Charles and Moeaki go...they're brittle enough to where I'd strongly consider resting them.

Berry I'd be ok with playing I think.

And yes getting Quinn more reps w/ the #1's is a very smart idea in case something were to happen to Cassel in the reg season. Stanzi needs to go to the PS at best, and it would be wise to sign another vet QB.

Unless you're trying to make the team or your a rookie preseason is just a glorified scrimmage.

The Patriots are a veteran team that are completely familiar with their system.

They don't need the work that a young team with a new system needs.

That being said, the starters for the Patriots will play for most of the first half of their next preseason game, and probably into the third quater.

I could expand further, but I'm not going to waste keystrokes on a dumbass.

Cassell is our Brady. If he goes down its all over.

NE has that dude, uh, whatshisname... tom something. anyway, they could have taken all of TC off and kick KC's ass 10 outta 10 times.

I'm expecting the 1st team to play into the third qtr.

I HIGHLY doubt that Belichek will play his starters that deep next game or more than a few snaps in game 4. We've already risked too much with the amount Cassell has played so far.

You really think we have a chance at a successful season if Cassel goes down before the season?

Hate to say it, but the chiefs are not at the level of the Pats yet. Plus they are still intstalling a new offense. they need this game time.

Belidick rested his starters because they have 3 games in a 10 day span.

Why? To see if they can take a hit? Whats the difference between "this game" and practice? Hell, they dont even run the same plays in preseason for fear of tipping other teams off.

If I was in charge of a veteran team with recent success, I'd play my starters maybe a quarter or two at most in a preseason.


The benefits just are not enough to outweigh the risks IMO.

No, we shouldn't rest the #1's this week. They've got plenty of room for improvement on both sides of the ball. I expect them to play well into the 3rd quarter.

They shouldn't sit until the last preseason game. Let them play one quarter, then throw in the scrubs.

I would play them into the third quarter this week and for one quarter the last game. That should be enough. Week three is generally where the #1s play the longest.

Third game is when most teams try to get down their timing and develop stamina to get the team in playing shape. I was surprised to see most of the first team out there until the half. Probably was an attempt to get something out of them. They played horribly. This isn't the days where we could rest everyone in the 4th game because we had 15 Euro league guys on the roster who had an exemption. I would expect we will have the first team out there most of the first half and probably even to start the 2nd half. Those who are a concern injury wise will have their snaps limited. Cassel will need to develop some timing with Bowe as well.

Nothing against Cassel, but yes. With Cassel it all hinges on us being able to run the ball. There are a lot of other QB's who could come in and do just that. Might even have one (or two) already on our roster.

There have been a few other threads on guys like McCoy who could be available. Doubt he would be interested since he did not get along with Daboll, but hey... :shrug:

Since you asked, I am going with yes.


Sorry Laz.

The weird thing is usually Belichick hasn't been afraid to play Brady for longer periods of time than most QB's in preseason.

no lovefest for Cassel from me ... he's a weakness.

just don't see why it has to be nagged about in every thread, it's tedious.

I think you misunderstand too.

I do not nag on Cassel in every thread. Just because I don't think he needs to be fitted for a HOF bust does not mean I am nagging.

Look. I love the running game/ play action pass football. It is my favorite offense. I could watch us run for 150-200 yards a game every week and be pretty happy. I just want a QB who can chip in when things are not going according to plan. That's all.

I am just not convinced Cassel is that guy. Just because I have posted stats to support that belief does not have to be interpreted as bashing/bitching/nagging.

CoMoChief
08-22-2012, 06:49 PM
Cassell is our Brady. If he goes down its all over.

That team would win games with Ryan Mallett

Now that guy's a fucking QB. He's going to be a stud when Brady is done playing.

The risk/benefit ratio is just way too high, especially in Cassells case.

So just so i understand you, you want to sit our starters for 2 weeks to avoid injury and trust that they will be ready to play a regular season game against one of the top teams in the league on paper?

This is football dude. Injuries happen. We might as well sit all of our starters till week 17 so they will be healthy for the playoffs.

Play the starters into the 3rd quarter for a couple of reasons. Stamina and half time adjustments, along with the fact that they need the time/reps with the new offense being installed.

Starters almost always play into the 3rd quarter in the 3rd game, hardly any in the 4th game. Pretty standard.
