Each team has their own situation.
Last week, for example, we played a few starters on Defense for a series or two: KJ, Mitchell, Reeds, (either Sharpton or Mays), while none of the Vikings starter played on the D.
Their offensive starters played all of two snaps, while our played longer - some more than others.
Due to injury, the Phins has been without their RG John Jerry.
Their whole own line is more in flux than ours, with a new LT while other guys have been moving around so their coaches can decide where to put them.
Some of their defensive players have been limited and will be out against us like Randy Starks, and the new first rounder Dion Jordan.
Their second round corner back is recovering from a sport hernia surgery last May; in his place, third round Will Davis will try to earn the starting job at #2.
Also, they made a lot of moves in the off-season, so their team is still lacking continuity on both sides of the ball.
Basically, we will have more of our ones on hand against them and we have more stability than the Phins overall.
