How much will the starters play in preseason game 1?


Recommended Posts

Here is how it works for the most part.

Game 1= starters  1 to 2 quarters depending on player depending on value etc.

Game 2=        ''   ''

Game 3 is the best Preseason game, most time played by starters usually 3 quarters  = final tune up.

Game 4 is no starters it's for guys on the bubble = to see who really wants to make the team.

My guess is Darnold and offense (minus bell) will play 1-3 series depending on how many plays they get in. If it’s a long TD drive it could be one series, if they go 3 and out they could come back again

Was it ever discussed why Jets n Midgets are playing week 1?

Other than when the stadium opened, and they both just had to play the first game there, hasn't it always been week 3 of preseason?

Game 3/4 is more like Philly/ Jets.....................

They would kill each other week 3 week 3 has starers for longest play time.

Yeah but they always used to play week 3 of preseason.  Even when playing in the regular season.

Not sure why this is different.

If it's a new trend, I think it's smart. You don't wanna show too much in the preseason to a team you're playing in the regular season. The Ravens are usually a preseason match-up for the Jets, but they opted out completely this year. That's what I'd be looking to do, too.

Don't think any real starters play 2 quarters.

Jets not ready to say if Le’Veon Bell will play in the preseason

Posted by Michael David Smith on August 6, 2019, 2:40 PM EDT
 

Jets running back Le'Veon Bell sat out last season, which means he hasn’t played a game of football since January 14, 2018. So should the Jets get him some work in the preseason, allowing him to shake off a year and a half of rust before the games count?

Jets head coach Adam Gase isn’t ready to say.

“I haven’t talked to him about it yet,” Gase said today, when asked whether Bell will play in Thursday’s preseason opener.

Gase coached the Dolphins last year, and he said he butted heads with running back Frank Gore, who wanted to work in the preseason while Gase preferred to keep him fresh for the regular season.

“Frank Gore is a great example,” Gase said. “I was like, ‘Frank, you are not playing in the preseason.’ He was in my office every day the third preseason game and he was like, ‘I’m playing.’ It’s hard to argue with Frank Gore. He’s not listening to what I’m saying. He’s just like, ‘I’m playing. I will be dressed whether or not you put me in a game.’ We ended up playing him one series and then he stood next to me for the next two series and says, ‘I’m going back in. I’m going back in.’ It’s maddening with a guy like that that wants to play that bad and it is a fine line with Le’Veon, he hasn’t played in a year. At the same time, when’s the right time? Is it this game? Is it the next one? Is it the next one? Do we just not play him this preseason? Do we go through the whole time and just give him reps? All those questions are what we keep talking about.”

Gase said the decision will ultimately be his, and Bell will abide by it.

“The one conversation we had about it, he goes, ‘Whatever you tell me you want to do, that’s what we’ll do.’ So, he’s been outstanding in that area,” Gase said.

NFL stars are increasingly sitting out the preseason, as teams calculate that the injury risk simply isn’t worth it. Bell may be an exception, however, a star player who sees preseason action just long enough to get a feel for live games again, and hopefully not long enough to get hurt.

Hopefully only one series in the first, second and third and none in the 4th. 

This is a whole new mix of players, coaches have to see who can do what and the need to build timing play calling on both sides of the ball. Obviously, we are not talking about L Bell, Sam and a few others. Pre- season is a time to see who wants, and more importantly who can play. Game 3 is the closest thing to the real thing, 4 is for the coaches to decide who they want or those on the ''bubble'' ,yah know.
