    Looks like Fokou will be healthy enough to play. Should he get the start or should McCarthy get the start?

    Definitely McCarthy. Fokou was only a stop gap player, insurance for McCarthy. Hopefully, his injury history is behind him. McCarthy just has a knack for big plays and flies around the ball.

    Should push McCarthy to the limit and see if he can handle it. If he gets hurt again (which is very likely), the team knows that he will never be the answer and MLB is a need in the draft. If he somehow stays healthy, maybe his previous injuries were a fluke and MLB is less of a need in the draft (but it's probably still a need).

    Fokou isn't a long-term solution in any scenario.

    McCarthy with ease.

    The knock on McCarthy was always durability. Now since Fokou has been out, McCarthy has played pretty good football and stayed healthy.

    Unless McCarthy goes down again, I'd stay the course and keep him in. Fokou will be a fine back-up from here on out.

    I agree, but I bet Munchak gives it back to Fokou

    Thats a Fisher move. The one thing great about Munchak is he plays the best players.

    He wasn't playing the best player until Fokou got hurt....

    Yes he was.

    I mean no Fokou is not better than McCarthy, but he had no choice but to roll out the season with Fokou, McCarthy was hurt for a while in training camp, remember?

    Same thing with Turner and Schwenke, Schwenk got hurt early too.

    Yeah but when McCarthy was healthy and a full participant in practice Fokou was still starting.
