If no preseason games, do you start Becton?

Risky move to have a guy start at LT with no NFL game experience.  Do you start Fant and let Becton work his way in or do you roll the dice with Becton at LT from day 1?

Who said there would be no preseason games? We learned this week they are going to have two of them.

The reasoning was that coaches felt teams would be better served getting more practice time. I’ll assume they will try to have some scrimmages with other teams also.

With all due respect, the whole premise of this thread seems a little goofy. You’re really pushing the envelope here asking a question that has no reason to be asked.

The NFLPA is recommending no preseason. They haven't signed onto the two game plan yet. 

As for Becton, I've been advocating starting him at RT from the get go. 

I know you have, and I understand your reasoning, however I’d prefer they put him out there right away at LT. Put Fant on the right side, if for no other reason than that’s the end game anyway, and why put it off?

Lets face it, Fant isn’t exactly pro bowl caliber at the LT position, and we can afford to let Becton go through some inevitable rookie bumps in the road.

If the coaches see in camp that Becton looks overwhelmed to the point where they feel RT is the place for him, Okay, but people are going to be concerned that we took the wrong guy. I really don’t want to hear the Cee Dee Lamb guys complaining from the get go this year.

Players have said they'd like no pre-season.

aaagh.. just saw that here.

Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up tomorrow and realize 2020 was all a dream?

Jet fans: Yay we got Bechton! In JD we trust!

Also Jet fans: We’re not actually going to play him are we? We have Beachum...

Hey.  Trolface:    Of course you ignore this once-in-a-lifetime pandemic which will cancel most of training camp (certainly physical contact) and the entire pre season.   But go ahead and ride on Jets fans just because you saw a little opening.

You really are a Troll.  Capital T intentional.  Thanks @slats for the name change.  You were right.

more proof: Any real Jets fan can spell Mekhi Becton correctly.   

Hello?  Hello?  Anybody home?  Think McTroll...Think.... 

 

A lot of words there, but unfortunately all they’ll amount to if we have a season this year is I’m right, and you’re wrong.

Becton (feel better now?) will be a starter. End of story.

Teams don’t sit the rookie they take at #9 in the draft. Especially if he plays Tackle on a team with an OL as bad as this one.

@Dcat

How about a little friendly wager....

I say Becton (see, I’m a fast learner) starts from day one, unless injured.

You say no, he won’t.

Loser agrees not to post for 30 days after game one.

Point is the same though and I agree, hes starting 

Thanks for going easy with my error about where we took him. 👍

This getting old thing is not all it’s cracked up to be.
