I read somewhere that Tomlin stated Shazier would not play vs. the Bills.

Hopefully he can play in that 3rd pre-season game and get significant playing time with the starters. Nothing can emulate NFL speed and being in that spotlight than actually going out there and getting your feet wet so I'm hoping Shazier can be ready come week 1 VS Cleveland. There's a slight level of discomfort with Shazier not seeing the field at this time in a crucial period for not only the young guys, but projected first round starters in a complex defense. Good thing Spence is looking good, though. Having him healthy at this point is a Godsend.

this is something that is looming large IMO - I can't stand him not being in there (I understand though) - he and more importantly the team is losing out by him not being in there

I've said it once before - no one should be shocked if Spence is in there Wk 1. That doesn't mean he stays, but - we have had recent history of downplaying injuries

Vince Williams @vinnyVidiVici98
Speed isn't everything tho. Its no good to run a 4.2 if you're going the wrong way.

Sounds like vince is a little sour about his job getting taken by a faster player. Well if he didn't run a 4.9 then troy wouldn't have to be a 3rd linebacker and maybe our pass coverage wouldn't have been abysmal

To Williams' credit, anyone is better than Kion Wilson. That second game in Cincy was a freakin' debacle! Nobody knew what they were doing and even though Williams isn't starter material, he did do good enough things that made the middle somewhat manageable. That's not saying much, but it could have been much, much worse as the season went along. It stabilized a bit once Williams got the nod.

I do agree with this. If he doesn't play next week, then it's time to worry. But that's exactly why I'm okay with him missing this week if they are not 100% sure he can go.

It's not. And speed isn't why Shazier went in the first and Williams went in the 6th. Shazier is a baller and has the instincts to make the splash plays.
