I understand that and I agree....But just like the OLBs Cowher played his starters for the most part the whole game...Why not put the youngs guys in at times and keep the starters fresh? Plus last year after the 2-6 start then it would have been perfect to let the young guys get some time....Not saying bench Foote or Farrior...But the best way to find out if players can play in the NFL is letting them get reps during games.....Especailly since James Farrior is around 33 now he might need rest on the bench to keep him fresher late in games or the season...
