I'm not saying you're wrong, and you have a logical argument, but do you really think if JH went ahead and treated the 3rd pre-season game as a "dress rehearsal" it would significantly improve what happens in the regular season? One single pre-season game? Is it really that critical?
ok, now we are talking turkey. as far as the one game being the end all be all. youre absolutely right, its just one preseason game. but where is the confidence supposed to come from if its not going to come in the preseason? right now id imagine our locker rooms confidence and continuity is pretty low. with only 12 days to go before the season opener, i think its obvious we pretty much wasted the preseason and we never used it as an opportunity to get better with our starting units. harbaugh himself said he wanted to evaluate his backups while everyone else was fine tuning their teams for the regular season. i just dont see why he has to piss into the wind.
an opportunity lost is lost forever.
Didn't know you were there. Tell us more.
To be fair, he said "I'd imagine" -- meaning he's just making a guess.
