    Gary Tanguay just said that he's "hearing" that the starters from both teams are going to play the entire first half.

    I trust BB to adjust his "depth chart" accordingly.....TFB's shoulder has been acting up lately....

    I would like to seee both Hoyer and Mallet get reps against the Eagles first teamers.

    DeMarco Ryans said the Eagles were installing a gameplan for this game.

    I would like the first team D match up aginst the Eagle starters and start the first serios of the 2nd half (practice making halftime adjustments to get ready for reg season)

    This will take the place of the 3rd PS game since we don't have the time for a full dress rehearsal fro TB of the Giants due to the compression of the schedule.

    This makes sense. Reid and BB are good friends. It didn't make sense for Reid to play his starters into the 3rd quarter and we don't. It wouldn't be a good teaching or evaluation period for either team. Its much more likely that they would mutually agree to play our best against there best for a similar time frame.

    Also better for us as viewers

    Andy Hart says he has confirmed no Brady, Gronk, Lloyd or Mayo as tweeted by Mike Giardi - who is adding no Wilfork, apparently.

    Our desk at NFL Network reports that word from Foxboro is Brady, Mayo, Lloyd, Hernandez, Welker and Gronkowski won't play tonight.

    Some kind mod should change this thread title to Few Starters to Play

    98.5 adds Welker and Hernandez to the "Will not play" list.

    I'm liking this more and more.

    So, in summary, the "starters" are going to play. Works for me.

    This is a great opportunity for a lot of players that wouldn't normally get the chance to get reps against a quality team's first string

    they could sure use a backup QB, for one thing.

    and ya know what... even Kafka might be an upgrade over Tyrod Taylor.

    He also thinks it's going to get dark at the game tonight. And, then the sun will come up tomorrow morning.

    A number of Patriot starters to get night off | Patriots Blog | providencejournal.com | The Providence Journal

    So no starters tonight at all. i was upset when i first heard of this but then i started to think. I want to see what this team is really made out of. injuries happen and i want to be assured that our backups are ready to kick ass. Hopefully edelman develops his game some more. I hope Stallworth shows why NE should keep him and I just want to see how our defense does against an Eagles team that is expected to keep its starters in until the 3rd quarter or so rumored. If the defense has a good outing tonight, that might just make up for my sadness that the starters on offense aren't in tonight. lol :rocker:

    Wouldn't be surprised if the Jets' scouts are eyeing our wide receivers. Not a ton of O-linemen that could help them, but they might figure we'll have at least one tough cut at WR.

    With 3 games in 10 days none of the pre season games this year will show anything beyond position battles.
