    It is just hard for me to see him play much unless it is just a blow out game. Since he has only been at a few practices.

    I would love to see him play, but not if he doesn't feel ready, and the coaches don't feel he's ready. I rather he plays 14 games instead of 3 plays and done.

    1. He doesn't have to know everything.
    2. He said he feels good ... he's back.
    3. He's had 2 days to practice a small set of plays.

    If he has had no set backs health wise ... I think he may be in
    there for some plays ... especially if Gabriel's hammy is still bothering him.
    Certainly just his presence on the field is going to make Bills back off.
    They will have to respect his speed and hands.
    I'm really hoping he gets to play some.

    Sure there's a chance but unlikely. Probably 50-50 that he'll be Inactive despite us only carrying 5 WR.

    Why would they have to respect his speed and hands ? He hasn't played a lick against NFL competition, not even in training camp.

    I wouldn't be suprised if he did.

    Well I would think they have scouts .... you don't think they know he is
    fast and has great hands even though he hasn't played in an NFL game yet?
    Ok ... I got a bridge I want to sell ya :D

    I dont think so...

    If anybody I think Watson and Graham both catch TDs.

    He doesn't have to know and have practiced all the plays to get on the field Sunday. He only has to have practiced whatever play is being called when he is on the field.

    He's had a couple days. Surely he ran through a dozen or so plays. He could go in whenever any of them are called, couldn't he?

    I believe he will play and maybe even make a couple catches but I'm not expecting too much from him at all in this first game. Maybe 2 for 15 yards

    Bam is back, that says it all about the state of the WR corps.

    Gabriel is limited.
    Jackson is limited.
    Troy is Troy.
    Reche is an enigma.
    Bam is the only other WR who has a complete game.

    If I had to put one on the inactive list it would be Jackson, give him some more practice time and allow him to absorb a couple Rodney lessons in practice...

    I not only think Jackson will play, I think he will start. And, the first play will be some kind of Ben Watson route intended to make the rookie safety bite on a crossing pattern, opening up a long post pattern over the top to Jackson. 7 points, if Brady hits him.

    There's too much preseason film on Watson for a jacked up rookie to not take the bait.

    I've noticed everytime I hear a commentator say "he can't play, he doesn't know the plays" it's a guy like Felger, Dickerson, etc. who has never played football in their life.

    Brilliant!-------
    Also, need to find out soon if Reche is going to be a player or not.

    I think he'll be able to play. Whether he does or not is obviously up to BB. Chad however only needs to know a few plays and he could be put in in the game when those plays are called.
