I would have to think quite a bit. More than the usual 1st quarter. Anybody hearing or seeing how much?

Just 1st Q

I expect it will be a mixed bag of starters tho.

The Gross's, 89's and Dwills of the world are liable to get out of the lineup early.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Jimmy and Cam swap series.

They need time, but our team walks a fine line with the injuries. Depth is a huge issue. I think the 1's get a quarter at the most.

First Quarter at the most.... There's such a competition for the 2nd & 3rd string spots, I'm really looking forward to the preseason. Especially at WR and CB.

Usually the starters never see the end of the first quarter; They usually play into the 3rd quarter in game 3 during preseason.

yeah, usually its only the first couple of drives. with jimmy being the starter, he might get the first quarter and cam the second. i doubt either will play more than a quarter. it is just to give them a taste and then work next week on things before game 2. that will set up who gets the bulk of first team time in the all important game 3. by then, the starter is likely determined and will sit game 4 and the backups will play game 4 but with the limited experience in the new system and our young QB's, they may see time in week 4.

so in short..... who knows? just watch the games and wait and see.

Anderson will start and play 2 series. Clausen and Newton will each play a little over a quarter. Pike will finish the end.

As for wide receivers, Smith will get a quarter or so, the other guys will rotate in and get work with both Clausen and Newton.

As for the defense we will rotate guys in and out trying several packages and combos.

Anderson hasn't had one snap with this offense and he starts? I know he comes from Chud's system but...

The way our team is this year, new staff, new scheme, young players, I expect a lot of weird rotations to be going on. Rivera probably has a "snaps" number in his head for every player.

I am not so sure. Pike has not been practicing (shoulder). Cam needs the time and so does Jimmy. Anderson could get the fourth quarter.

I agree that the fanbase needs to see Cam in to start the game. Clausen would hear it until he sits for Cam; even if he starts out not terrible.

Cam will have his rookie jitters, and after several screw-ups, Jimmy comes in and should play like he's been out there before. Plus, it will be interesting to see Cam open up against the opponent's starting defense as opposed to their backups.
