Pike is injured and Anderson hasn't practiced once yet. It is possible at least in my eyes that Cam and Jimmy play the first 3 quarters with the first and second teams.

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.

Jimmy comes in and plays like he's played actual NFL games under the new offense? With a healthy o-line? You sureeeeeee?

This year preseason is going to be different. With the shorter training camp, I see alot of 1st stringers staying out on the field longer than the usual preseason, except for a few "star" players (Smith, D.Will, Beason, Davis, guys like that).

I hope Rivera keeps Jimmy and Cam in there til 3rd quarter at least, since that's the real competition at QB.

Yeah, I agree. This is how I was thinking it would/should play out.

I do not see Cam starting. RR is not worried about the fans. He is more worried about developing his #1 draft pick. He will let Cam watch for a quarter or even 2.
