    Question Do you play Ben vs the Eagles in the preseason opener?

    Pretty straight forward stuff, do you play Ben this week against Philly? Even if he was healthy, or is healthy, he wouldn't get more than a series or two, so do you risk it coming off that twisted ankle or stepped on foot or whatever he says he's got?

    I say at this point why bother, just let the other 3 take the reps, especially seeing what Jerrod Johnson can do. Maybe Leftwich starts in the first quarter, Batch for the 2nd and then like Johnson finish the game. It's not likely that Ben would be injured in this game anyway but you never know.

    If he starts it will be a running series and maybe a couple of short over the middle passes. Then he's on the pine!

    Play a quarter. Lots of hand-offs and short passes. Need to see game speed.

    Tough call. But they probably let him go a series. Similar to exactly what we saw yesterday with the Saints and Brees against the Cardinals.

    According to the man himself the other day, he thinks he'll be ready to go when camp resumes again on Tuesday. I'm guessing if he doesn't practice then he'll sit out for the Eagles game. I'd like to see him get a series or two as well but if he doesn't it's not a horrific loss. The only unknown right now is Johnson so give him a ton of snaps.

    One series one play an 80 yard TD to AB.. Give Mr. Wallace something to think about!
