The next big step is coming up for Rodney. In fact, it could be the biggest step for him to fulfill his destiny to win Comeback Player of the Year, voted to the Pro Bowl, win another SB Championship ( most important for him and us). He does need to play in game conditions and have contact. At first I felt that he didn't need to be in any pre-season games. But, I think that a couple of series at the beginning of Sat nights game may be the best thing for him. Get it out of the way before the first regular season game. I would hate to see him go in next Thurs nights game. The 4th pre-season game is usually sloppy with guys flying all over trying to make their last impressions. The final call on this is Rodney's and BB's. But, I'm curious at to what some of you are thinking about this.
