    If it is your train of thought that Bush is not playing because he will not be here, than why is Randy Starks playing? He might not be back. Incognito could be cut. Play Samuda. I bet Fasano is not resigned. Play Egnew.

    It is silly logic. The best players on the roster should be playing...PERIOD. Everything should be done to win the game in a given week. IF the situation is they think that Thomas gives them a better chance to win or a Lamar Miller cannot help move the ball, then the staff's assessment skill are questionable at best.

    btw, I agree that Bush will not be back. Use him up and get as much out of him if that is the case.

    I am not sure that Fasano will not be resigned and as for starting Egnew...

    You do not understand what I am saying....under the logic of people here, Egnew should be playing because Fasano might not return. It makes no sense. Fasano SHOULD be playing and Egnew not playing because he is not good enough yet.

    The BEST player should be getting the reps.

    Fasano, Starks and Smith will all be re-signed. Bush may very well get re-signed as well but as I said there is a large enough body of work from all those guys to get a read on what they bring to your team.

    With Thomas, Miller, Lane, Egnew, etc...they are all young players, why not get them reps? If they drop off in production isn't huge than why would you retain a guy like Bush at 5 million when you can have a guy like Miller for 3/4 of that price. It is smart football, in the mean time if Miller isn't cutting it you know that you need depth. or that he might not ever get it. Let's face it the reason Miller isn't on the field is due to his lack of knowledge and understanding of the offense, the same can be said of Egnew.

    I'm not saying bench Bush for the sake of evaluation but giving 25 to 30% of his playing time to Miller isn't going to hurt one bit. It is also time for Thomas to sink or swim, you either have a big ponding back that can carry the load or you need to move on. It shouldn't take a running back three years to become a factor in the NFL, they either have it or they don't.
    Peace and Humptiness Forever

    I am not convinced Starks will be back. I think Hartline and Smith will. Bush...no. Long...who knows. Fasano, McDaniel and Clemons can be upgraded.

    My guess is Smith gets the tag.

    Where does it say anything about playing time in that article? The title "Fins leave Bush in dark" seems to be about his contract situation.

    It does talk about playing time. It talks about Thomas not being productive and getting touches from Bush and Miller.

    This offense has been terrible at scoring points pretty much all year... they were realistically out of the playoff race weeks ago.

    Yes, because things of that nature should always be left up to the fans

    huh? Why can't the media, fans and league observers not question the decision making?
