Re: Butt Kicked
I definitely think you are wrong about that. I don't believe for a second that players go 110% in the preseason, I doubt that most of the big name players go even 80%. In one of the articles on this site I read, there was a comment about McAlister not looking like he wanted to be there, and I don't doubt that he didn't. What does this game mean to him, he's not fighting for a roster spot nor will he get benched if he gives up a big play. I don't know that the coaches say "take it easy out there" but I am pretty sure they'd rather escape unscathed and with a L than with a couple injuries and a W.
Preseason or just playing a game in a carpark.You play 110% all out,to get the win.
Do the coaches say,"Ok guys take it easy out there,don't get injured."No.
''You'd love to go on the first day but I'm glad for the situation I'm in,'' he said. ''Baltimore knows how to play defense.''
