Maybe Lynch's back spasms are just Belichekian smoke

I have nothing to back this up, but I've got a feeling Lynch is just taking the preseason off. He showed he was sharpish in the first half of the first two games. Maybe he gets 2 weeks of vaykay as part of his new deal or something. I mean, why expose him to injury in meaningless games? Feature backs are not exactly indestructible. It's not like you need more game tape to see where to peg him on the depth chart. Anybody else wanna see Turbin get as many reps as humanly possible before the season starts?

Plus our first game is against the division, we're allowed to steal a march on the opponent by lying our asses off about who's gonna make the trip.

RW1's gonna wind up handing the ball off all game anyway, as part of the soft landing for a rookie qb in a new offense. The Cards' gameplan is gonna be the traditional "blitz the shit out of the rookie qb" defense, anything you can do to make them back away from that is a plus. Getting gashed up the middle by a couple of beastmode tough runs could do the trick. Especially after the O-line does that thing where they push the pile after beastmode gets stacked up, defenses hate it when they have to deal with linemen at the second level.

Of course, this will all wind up moot after Skelton/Kolb combine for 6 turnovers...

If I seem a little daft today, it's because my coworker's preseason Live account was disabled the exact second the last week 4 game was over, giving me tons of time for leisurely review ( thanks for finding new and exciting ways to be cheap, nfl). I haven't had any football lately. Sorry.
