Totally agree. With the new coach we might see that. And it would also give him a good look at the depth in real live action during the season and not waiting for a injury are something occur to actually see the guys in action. And it would keep us more energetic coming near the back end of the season and not so beaten and battered and more healthy and ready for the playoffs. And it would also keep the starters away from maybe a injury are two. But we will have to wait and see how Coach Tomlin runs his games.
