    Re: Bollinger to Start vs. Jets???

    Though as you know Id like Bollinger to start there is a better possibility that Childress just wants then to Bollinger to work his hardest too make that possibility into a probability and T-Jack will work his heart out to make sure that doesn't happen. He's been doing it a lot. He said there's a possibility that they only keep 3 safetys in the Stqar Tribune even though they're looking at 4 so that Dwight Smith, Greg Blue and Mike Doss work as hard as they can to stay on the team. I played football It what coaches do. it could be that and I have noo real prooof but just my gut you know telling me he wants to intensify that qB competition even more.

    He might as well sign everyone to a one year contract so that every years there contract year. That way everybodys working their hardest to get renewed.

    blah blah blah ... you want Bollinger to start so you stat saying that Childress will do it? Anywhere that Childress is rumored to want Bollinger to start? Why would they want one year contracts? Anyone can be cut AND NOT PAID ... so they work their hardest anyways ... seems like a bunch of hogwash to me.

    People People People........
    Its pre-season.........

    If there really is a competition at QB (IMHO I don't think there really is) then the other guy will get a start as well.
    Oh by the way, just in case you didn't know and so you won't run around yelling about the sky falling, we will see this happen at other positions as well.
    ,

    On a lighter note and addressing something that really looked bad (and it wasn't at the QB position)......

    Fullback Tony Richardson was told by Childress on Thursday that he wouldn't be playing. "He told me I was getting the senior veteran's night off," Richardson said. He wanted to play but wasn't about to argue. "If [the coach] says you're not playing you can't trump that call," he said.
    I thought that Dugan filled in pretty admirably for Tony.
    Saw a few nice blocks and a reception.
    That is good news.
    Hopefully a play/series off every now and then by someone like Dugan will keep Tony healthy for the whole year cause our OL might still have a few issues.
    ;D

    If Bollinger is the king of the Jets defense then give him a chance to rip them apart, if he can't, then demote him to the #3 slot and promote Thigpen .
    Bollinger is a few yrs removed from his former team....last I checked there are many changes to their defense since then.

    Exactly! What people fail to realize is that preseason is a time to evaluate the new players as well as the younger/newly aquired players. What they will be doing is playing rookies & new acquisitions & second stringers so to speakagainst the opponents starters to see how well they play against them.

    You can't always accurrately evaluate players if you're putting them up against another teams 2nd & 3rd string players throughout all of preseason.

    If Bollinger starts, you can bet there will be other rookies & 2nd stringers starting also.

    (I mean, what he said ...)

    scores in pre-season don't matter, or it might even go the other way, consider that Colts and N England both lost this first game and both went 50-50 or worse last pre-season. it matters not.

    I hope you are right and all of the speculation is true about Holcomb.
    Maybe that's been the master plan all along
    ???.


    Personally, I think Chilly should start Bollinger Friday against the Jets.
    The most important game of the preseason (according to most) is Game 3.
    Nearly no QB goes through a season playing all 16 games, so, if Bollinger is not cut, he will most assuredly be playing.

    Yes, he looked like crap against the Rams.
    Let's see how he performs with the first team offense for a couple or three series, then put TJack in for the rest of the first half with the first team.
    Childress absolutely needs to see if Bollinger can play or not...you could flip flop the scenario I've outlined and be able to evaluate similarly.

    Still a bit confused on the whole Holcomb thing.

    Are we trying to say we want him because he has been a great career backup and he is a better backup than Bollinger or.......

    Are we saying we want him to come in and start because he has been a great career backup and will be better than TJ?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...?playerId=1162

    TD's - 37, INT's 37.
    He is currently 4th on the depth chart behind McNabb (understand that) Feeley (don't understand that), Kolb (Understand that).
    Feeley sucks, Kolb had a high draft pick used on him.
    Is this guy worse than Feeley?

    Again, just a bit confused. Hope it is the first option and not the second.
    Educate me people, what am I missing if it is the second option we are all clamoring for.

    Holcomb has started many games in the past, for both Clevesuck and Buffaho, with some good results...and most importantly, he IS a better option than Bollinger, Henson and Thigpen.
