Okay, so our offense sucks. We still have one of the best defensive units in the NFL. Just ask Tom Brady.
Meanwhile, Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor were held out of the team's first pre-season game last Saturday. And they may or may not be held out again on Thursday. And I'm all for that. It's pre-season and these guys need their rest. The best player in the NFL, San Diego's LaDanian Tomlinson, never plays in the pre-season. So why not treat our stars the same? Channing Crowder has made his feelings clear on the matter:
"I don't want them to play,'' linebacker Channing Crowder laughed. "There's no reason to go out there. Those guys are kind of geriatrics. You don't want them to go out there and get hurt."
Meanwhile, the team spent the day Tuesday doing their usual shuffle with the offensive line, putting a player here, switching a player there:
Rookie Drew Mormino began the day with the first team at left guard. After he was devastated in team drills by Kevin Vickerson and Mkristo Bruce, he was replaced by Chris Liwienski until late in practice when they alternated.
Devastated by Kevin Vickerson and Mkristo Bruce. Devastated. By Vickerson. And Bruce. Ok, so here's the plan Cam: Rest all your stars on defense. Every one of them. And keep rolling with the offense until something -- anything -- clicks into place.
