Re: Competetion Wednesday

Cant have Competition Wednesday cause half of the competition is injured. I like the sound of it though. What's going on with Toon haven't heard about him

Well Ingram did not practice Wednesday, so let's hope Payton embraces the idea of Competition Wednesday, starting uh, yesterday.

Re: Competetion Wednesday

I like it in theory but don't believe it will work in actual implementation. For example, there's not a saint fan out there that would want McCown to start over a healthy brees just because brees had an off passing day in Wednesday's practice.

Looking at it at the running back position I can't imagine starting gerhart over a healty AP just because gerhart had a couple of big runs in Wednesday's practice

Re: Competetion Wednesday

Gerhart may not start but in that situation he'd get more touches.. Least that's what I'm thinking. So Competition Wednesday would apply to everyone besides drew and jimmy lol

lol I rest my case. I like the idea for certain positions but I'm not sure it can be applied across the board. Especially if the player is making multiple millions. You better have a better reason to give to the owner why his $12 million player is riding the pine other than "this is other guy really shined in Wednesday practice"

As much as I hate it, there's politics in everything.

Re: Competetion Wednesday

The fans would grit their teeth mighty hard at first.... Then if you get to 7-0 it would pass.

Also, only certain coaches could pull it off with out being lynched. Sean Payton would get some odd looks but we trust him, some other coaches wouldn't make it into the Stadium on Sunday.

Again, do you see McCowan beating out Brees? I don't. Could Watson beat out Graham if Graham is dropping everything like he does from time to time? Certainly, and I would rather have it that way.
