Give the players that you need to see a game
Powell,Kasim Edebali,Baptise etc all should see time.Id like to see if Ryan Griffin is good enough to be the number 2 next year aswell

Re: What to do next week versus Tampa?

Some things I want to see:

SJB starting- need to see what he can do.

Lelito starting- should have been all year.

Bress on the bench- no point in getting him hurt.

New Guards playing as well- Sergio is one that needs to start.

Virgel starting- again I would like to see what he can do.

Bottom line is we need to get the young guys out there to see what we have.

I like it. Kill two birds with one stone. Higher draft pick and see some player development.

I don't think we have a choice. Most teams are professionals and prepare to win. That doesn't mean the team will perform.

I would like to see a game where non-starters start. Lord knows we already know what the starters can and can't do.

This game I play players I want to evaluate for next yr like jean Baptiste, Saunders, and players like Brees I will take out after the half. Evaluating players take precedent over trying win.

Re: What to do next week versus Tampa?

i dont think the goal should be to get a higher pick (especially since our FO will probably waste it, anyway).

As others have said, though, we should see what some of the young guys can do and get some playing experience for the guys who need it.

Not to mention avoiding major injuries.

Re: What to do next week versus Tampa?

I'm with a few others thinking that we need to start a bunch of the young guys including Griffin. Ultimately a loss will really help this team in terms of draft positioning and knowing the way this season has gone we'll have one of our most dominating games of the season haha. Win or lose, a lot of young guys need to see the field.
