Geneaut Posted September 7, 2010 Share Posted September 7, 2010 I see a bunch of posts saying 'PlayerX should be the starter instead of PlayerZ'. On our team the term 'starter' doesn't mean much.From a recent interview with Smitty:“I think the naming of starters in our scheme, offensively and defensively, depends on what personnel groups they run out there. When you say who is the starter the guy that plays the first snap of the game, that’s going to all be based on what personnel grouping (offensive coordinator) Coach (Mike) Mularkey decides and what personnel grouping (offensive coordinator) Coach (Bruce) Arians decides up in Pittsburgh this week. You’ve got to list somebody as a starter and that’s something that we will do when the season starts. Really, we’re going to have, in our mind based on the different personnel grouping, we’re going to have 14 or 15 guys that we consider starters on our team. I think it’s very important that everybody understands that they are all starters and they’re all going to be contributing. That it’s not just the first 11 guys that go out there on the field.” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
