Last tune up game before the season starts. This will be the scrubbini special as the I’ll-never-call-them-the-fucking-LA San Diego Chargers come to town. I’m sure they will follow suit and not suit up most of their starters as the NFL deals with the new normal of starters basically playing one quarter in the 2nd game, and one half in the 3rd game.
We of course will get a big dose of the Beater tonight as he auditions for a backup spot elsewhere in the league. I really don’t think we carry 3 QBs no matter what Shanny is saying. If it comes down to that we’ll be fucked regardless and can pick up Kaepernick on the cheap.
If anything, this’ll be a battle for the 5th WR spot, or the backup RB spot. Bourne, Matthews, and Rick James are the bubble guys, along with RB Jeff Wilson are the guys who are on the bubble. Pettis is safely in, and I’d thik Rick James’ solid punt returning gets him in. The injury to McKinnon may leave the door open for Wilson if they shut down grounded Jet for another year. then again, Hurt is dealing with a back issue, and Trent Taylor is a ? as well, so maybe Bourne squeaks by as well.
The D looks pretty set, so let the scribbinis play! Cut down day is looming.
