View Full Version : Will short preseason change preseason game philosophy?

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but are the Texans likely to adjust their preseason game philosophy (regarding how long each side plays) due to the shortened preseason? Has Kubiak said anything about this (e.g. how long starters will be playing tonight)?

I could see that they might want to get guys as much practice as possible (esp. defense), and so leave the 1st (and then 2nd) team in longer. Or, I could see them saying that people are less conditioned and more likely to get hurt, and give them shorter times at the beginning. Or, maybe they just ignore it and go with the usual ~2 series/1+ quarter/1 half/rest pattern for the starters over the 4 games...

Kubiak said that they would basically maintain course & speed.

I would play my starters a little longer. Especially on defense. They need reps
