    Grant Williams needs to rest....

    I dont see how we can let grant williams play on friday night. he is now a key guy for us this year and while i applaud his willingness to play with pain to help the offense find its rhythm and protect bulger, now is NOT the time to be a hero. We need him at full strength for opening week and i dont see how we can afford to take the risk that he aggrevates the ankle. I read he is in a walking boot when he is not actually on the field. During the season is one thing, but this is preseason. Seems too risky to me.

    any thoughts.

    I agree, but unless Pace plays, then we're going to be stretched pretty thin.

    I hear you nick. Its a reasonable point. However, i would rather have tercero and randall at tackle than take the risk of losing grant williams for any part of the regular season. Having seen the photo of him on the sideline, i believe that Big Jackie is still capable of getting in there for a series or two if absolutely necessary. If nothing else, he can get his stomach in the way of the defensive end and use his patented holding technique to keep the rush away from bulger.

    Rest as long as it is relatively safe for Bulger to be in there.

    I wouldn't think Bulger is going to play more than a quarter on Friday even if Williams sits; he already banged his knee on Monday.

    I think he'll play the first half. Had he looked sharp against Kansas City, he could afford to sit out early. But he needs the work.
