it seems that more teams ars starting to start there rookies if the talent is there, like kearse for the titans or james for the colts. i hope gun is serious about the possibility of 3 rookie starters for the chiefs because that is the only way they are going to find out if they are any good.

Cannot agree any more! Sly Morris' development will be greatly hampered if we park hom on the bench. Look at Cloud - he got a measly 34 carries last season, and is now expected to carry the load?! No wonder the national media says we're going to stink - no one knows our O players because we park them all in favor of veteran FAs. It's time we start developing our own O talent - other than periphery positions (OL, FB, TE)! You'll never know if a guy can/cannot play unless you give them a fair chance.

I agree as well. A Top 10 pick should start no matter what. But for Players like Slymo get him in there is the only way to get good fast. That is why I'm high on Moreau, ya he will make some mistakes but I don't care you never know.

Yeah, I agree. The salary cap has some considerations in those decisions as well.
