    Things have changed man...this is no dress rehearsal. Teams are just not doing that anymore—at least not many of them.

    They still game plan for the third game and and treat as close to a regular season game than any of the other preseason games.

    Some play starters more than others, the main reason they didn’t play Mariota more tonight is because the Oline was going to get him killed. I doubt seriously that this is the way the team wanted this game to play out.

    Yep

    Vrabel is going to tell us at his presser in about half an hour that MM was pulled because of fear he was going to get hurt.

    What is going to change in two weeks though, it was the week 1 starters out there tonight with him.

    Who says they game planned? And how much? Maybe a bit but come on—nothing serious. What would they base it on? Of course it went worse than they wanted. But you watch the film, get an ass chewing, and clean it up. Worry after a regular season game makes sense...not now.

    Do they pay the OL to block IF the QB looks good? NO! They get paid to do their job and that is to keep the QB clean and upright. They are failing.

    Perhaps getting rid of both OG's and leaving Jones maybe didn't solve all the problems on the interior OL like we hoped.

    I think Vrabel decided the offense looks bad (everyone) and it's raining...so why risk more injury? Weren't people just complaining Mariota could get hurt diving into the endzone to score....but then when he gets protected, they throw a fit!

    A lot will change before game one. First, the players will care a lot more. Second, they will legitimately game plan. Third, they will have an entire game to find a rhythm.

    So let's see if your logic makes sense. You claim he was benched in the pre-season dress rehearsal, so obviously he didn't start week 1, right?

    Oh wait, he did. You're trying to suggest things are what you'd like them to be...not what is really happening. Big difference!
