    No point in risking him on the turf at this point. This will give everyone a chance to watch Whitehurst for an extended period of time. I'd like to see him with some of the first teamers.

    I'd just like to see more of what the kid has ... got a cannon arm, but does he have the head for the speed of the NFL game? He's looked lost quite a bit to me - maybe more playing time will help him. If not - move him along.

    This will be a good game to see both backups. Whitehurst needs to show something because imo he hasnt shown much at since has been here.

    Injuries are the only thing that can take us down. Anyway we can prevent injuries is good with me.

    Our camp wasn't weak like Dallas (BTW, Dallas appeared soft last week). Our camp wasn't very physical either. From my seats our camp was methodical and professional. Just enough hitting to get your licks in and just enough conditioning to put the players into game shape (Players now come to camp in almost peak shape).

    If we stay healthy, get a bounce or two and never ever get ahead of ourselves, this SHOULD be the year of the Lightning Bolt.

    Pretty sure you can count on it Ant... The 3rd pre-season game is important to the vets as well as the rooks.
