PS means nothing. Next to nothing. If OB likes what he sees in practice, Case has got a shot. The preseason will be treated like games that don't count. We'll be vanilla, if the QB can only handle vanilla (being the first season in this system, we'll most likely be vanilla).
It'll be about seeing our offense vs whatever vanilla defense our opponents play against us. It's an opportunity to get it on film so they'll something "real" to talk about on Monday. They'll identify mistakes, opportunities, and a slew of other possibilities, there will probably be a lot of, "In a real game, we'll do this...." & stuff like that.
Fans are the only ones looking for anyone to "light it up" in the preseason. If I were a coach, I'd rather see a mistake, get it on film, instead of seeing some Johnny Football highlight real. One offers a coaching opportunity, something to build off of, the other offers nothing of any value.
You'll probably win the preseason, but you won't be prepared for week 1. Then you're playing catch up for week 2, & you're further behind the rest of the league in week 3.
