Are we the only team who doesn't scrimmage other teams?

I've been seeing a lot recently about teams practicing with other teams and scrimmaging. Can someone explain (besides JR being cheap) why we do not do this? New England and Tampa are doing it this week, Atlanta and Cincy did it last week. I remember years ago at Furman, we'd practice with the Falcons occasionally. Would this not be beneficial? Get an idea of what some other teams are fielding or atleast the mental preparation of going against someone else in practice.

 

I definitely wouldn't do Atlanta, but we have the Titans and Redskins close enough.

That's just another opportunity for a defender who has no conscience of knocking your QB out, knock your QB out

That would attack Cam.

I see no reason why other teams would do that. It's kind of what the preseason is for.

why is the default setting always "JR being cheap"??

that's what preseason games are for.

 

anyway, with the injury to brady because of an over-aggressive bucs player, how can anyone think that this is a good idea?

 

having 4 meaningless games in which starters can get hurt is bad enough.

@mortreport: Video evidence from fan, @ChadKopcak, appears to show Brady did have contact, Bucs DE Adrian Clayborn pushing LT Nate Solder into pocket

This is what happened to Brady, I have no desire to see Kerrigan or Orakpo try to do this to Cam.

Depends on each coach, Fox nor Rivera obviously aren't a fan of it.
