    Makes no difference to me. We aren't playing all our starters either, some aren't even making the trip to Hawaii.

    I think we should play all non injured starters. I don't want a slow start to the season. I want everything firing game 1

    Oh yeah, people don’t want to play their starters against us and get hurt.

    Think about it, would you want your front 7 grinded into dust by our big uglies??

    I sure wouldn’t want any of that...

    However, we need to be playing all our players the way it’s always been done in preseason; people need reps, I don’t care how good they are... Any starter in during the second quarter needs to be immediately pulled until the 3rd game..

    Would be nice if we play our starting offense, we put up a TD or two.

    to each his own
    but preseason remains interesting to see all the rookies skills and the competition to battling it out for the final roster spots.

    Cowboys starters will only play 1 or 2 series. Not a big deal.

    Next week against the Texans will be the game to watch. Starters will play into the 3rd quarter.

    If some teams are going to be doing this, the league might as well reduce the preseason by a game or two. What a waste of time.

    Bet the Cowboys on the halftime score. They should get up 10-0 before Mike White gives the game away

    Preseason is for backups anyway.

    It’s really sad actually. Excluding the Dak preseason, our offense hasn’t functioned in the preseason with the backup QB in several years. It makes it really tough to evaluate other players when the back up is so bad. That doesn’t always happen with other teams. The Niners could function with Mullens last week, but we looked lost once Dak went out.

    Pre season has always been about evaluating talent and getting the starters up to speed. But in recent history the latter has taken a back seat and it has become mainly about evaluating talent. The first 2-4 weeks of the season is used to get the starters up to speed.

    So, they're actually not even playing their starters, really?

    So, they think they don't need them against us, huh?
    O-O-h-h-h, they're in lotsa trouble now!! :angry:

    Maybe we should forfeit the Governor's Cup to them before the game starts to get 'em over-confident! Yeah, that might work! :D
