thats not true at all.... every team in the nfl except for the niners played their starters for the 3rd preseason game for about 3 qrts. and its been that way since i can remember watching football. question is why didnt we play our starters for 3 qrts to get ready for the season against a very good houston team? 31 other teams sure did that last game.
and thomas jones is an old man, how much or how little he plays means nothing and imo thats a very bad example considering he has an all pro calibur rb with him in kc.
