play them and profit.
you do not need to bench guys for a half or game but a few plays to send a message.
anyone arguing more shouldn't be done is simply not paying attention.
I'm comfortable throwing deep to Harris in single coverage for a play or two. Or running Dunbar instead of Felix. Or just bringing in a two TE set if you have to change the personnel group to get reliable players on the field for a snap or two. I'm less comfortable with taking out an OT for jumping or a CB for lining up offsides (until Jenkins is back, anyway). But, yeah, pick your spots and send an actual message during the games. Sit them longer if the problems persist. Especially on offense. If you don't have guys who can be where they're supposed to and who can focus through to a snap, then it highlights the problem that you need different guys.
“Everything is going good,” Romo said. “I think we’re putting together some ideas that we love, and I feel strongly about certain things that are going to help us. I think it’s just a bunch of guys going to work every day and figuring out ways to be better in a lot of different capacities, from players and coaches, all the way up. It’s exciting." --Tony Romo
