I think I even recall wade talking about how bradie was going to call the plays and then there was discussion about who'd have the green dot.
I don't recall any serious talk from the team about sharpton being the starter and having to fend off James.
There were several things like this from profootballtalk
where it was said that Sharpton and James would compete. I'm not going to go through all the pre-season ht.com stuff, but I'm sure I saw several articles back at that time that mentioned competition between James and Sharpton.
The general consensus HERE was that James was going to get the job but my understanding was that he was going to have to beat out Sharpton for it. Not saying that beating out Sharpton was going to be a major challenge or anything, just that he'd have to.
