Edwards prefers line continuity over benching bad performers

According to Teicher at the Star [Ed. note: Remember to link the stories you quote! Thanks! -Chris], Herm want to go young and play the the 2008 regular season preseason with a view to the future. That is unless you play offensive line, then the goal is totally different.

Herb Taylor played well enough at left tackle in the preseason in Branden Albert’s absence that coach Herm Edwards suggested Taylor would play some once the regular season started.

Taylor hasn’t played except on special teams. With right tackle Damion McIntosh having his problems, using Taylor in his spot might be one step toward better offensive-line play.

But Edwards said continuity on the line is more important.

“In the past, the thing we’ve struggled with is those guys (not) playing together,” Edwards said. “Now they’re all healthy, for the most part. We’re going to (let them) play together for a little while.

“But I’m not going to say no to anything.”

This kind of double standard with players and positions drives me crazy! If the plan is to play youth and get them experience this year fine. If it is to play the best players at a position and try to build a winning enviroment and bring the young players along as they show signs of improvement fine.

But DO NOT try to sell me on giving an untest QB the chance to start "so we know what he can do" and then sit two younger possibly better linemen so that we "have a better chance to win."

Pick a direction and stick to it this year!
