    It’s no biggie.

    But Freeman doesn’t need reps. Booker needs reps.

    It’s a GAME 4. There’s a reason no one of value plays in these games across the league. Players hate game 4s. Why? Cause there’s no gameplans. There’s a field filled with players who don’t know what they are doing and causing injuries with bad technique missed assignments etc. there’s been way too many injuries this month and part of that is due to flag happy refs changing the way players are tackled.

    It’s not worth the risk of a few reps with players and QB he won’t even play with come week 1. Game 4 injuries happen because there’s dodos out there trying to go 200% to land a job. I’m betting there will be more injuries in this game than the others. Chubbs a rookie and needs reps but you won’t see me wanting him out there.


    Reps with the 1st team > reps with scrubs.

      If those 12 extra carries are enough to make Royce's wheels fall off, he was never suited to be the starting RB anyways

        The point I’m making is it only takes one play to blow a knee. Why add to the percentage with meaningless reps along side players he won’t be playing with..booker looks lost on the lanes out there. He’s the one that needs the reps.

        Players ask for game 4s off. Across the league the workhorses are not playing game 4. Freeman is the only workhorse back on this team.


        Who in your opinion is the most valuable RB on the team right now?

          I dont see the point in playing Royce behind the backup line. Solves nothing.

            It solves lack of experience.

              You have a lot of teams rethinking even Game 3 approaches like the Bears.

              Just a matter of time until a 2 game PS and 18 game season.

                So you would’ve played Kareem Hunt in game 4 last preseason? Andy Reid was dumb to pass up rookie reps in game 4?

                Hunt had 11 total rushes for that preseason.

                Some players don’t need it. Nothing about Freeman in these 2 months say he needs more reps with bad players. IMO Freeman gets like 4-5 touches at the most in this game. What’s the point of that

                  Injuries are happening everywhere. Players don’t want to play in these games.

                    I don't really care if he plays or not.

                    He could also blow out a knee in practice. I don't think it's the smartest thing to do, but a few extra carries isn't a huge deal. They have a full contact practices from time to time, should everyone sit those out too?

                    It's football. Things happen. I doubt they are going to feed him the ball 30 times in preseason game 4. If that happens, then we will have something meaningful to bitch about.

                      I thought that was a little weird. Are they giving thier starters 2 weeks off before the first real game, or do some of them play Thurs? It just seems like a long layoff before any real action, esp before the season.

                        Agreed.

                          Fair enough. I play percentages a lot and just like the 0% percent chance in that game as opposed to 1+% of injury.

                          I think I see Freeman as more valuable than some think. I wouldn’t play Hunt in that game 4 last year. Even though he was a mid round rookie with only 11 touches all preseason.

                          If the off chance Freeman get hurt in this game I will be unbearable. Broncos have been extremely lucky so far this preseason with minimal injuries.

                            Do you also use that as a pickup line?

                              So if he doesn't get hurt, maybe I will be unbearable.

                              Deal?

                                Deal. Although you’re too level headed to go bananas on here.
