    After bringing up this question in another thread, I decided to see what everyone thought about it;
    How is Fisher going to split playing time between Young and Volek during the preseason?
    I'm thinking he's going to give Volek enough time to feel comfortable and get in a handfull of series before the season starts. I also feel that he's going to try to give Young as much experience as possible. Maybe 40/60 Young with Mauch and Hodges getting a couple reps.
    What do you think?

    i could see volek only getting two or three series in the first two games with young going until the mid way through the third quarter.

    volek will probably play the entire first half in the third game with vince getting the third quarter.

    i really wouldnt be surprised to see vince start the fourth game, just to get him some game reps with the first string guys.

    You have accidentally stumbled into the formula for everything.

    Volek - Young = Playing time.

    I am wondering what was going through Voleks mind about Young getting so much playing time in the Broncos game. Volek played the 1st quarter and part of the 2nd quarter then Young played the rest of the game. I am betting that didn't sit well with him.

    He could have used the time in the game more than Young.

    volek was getting sacked left and right. i think it was a good move to get him out of there.

    as for vince playing so long...

    (on if he left Young in longer than planned)

    We wanted reps and snaps, and we just weren’t getting them. I was close to telling the defense just to let them score so we could get the ball back and put some offensive drives together. That’s why we played him longer than expected. That’s why we played LenDale a little longer than expected.

    I think Mauck and ... the other one, are the ones who might be upset. Young got to play at their expence, not Volek's.

    I know Vince Young's development is important, but it's going to hurt on team. Volek isn't getting that much playing time, and this might hurt us in the season. He needs to gel with the offense.

    He looked like poop last week. If he's going to suck that bad I'd rather watch VY get there and at least spice things up a bit.
