Herm Edwards talks about starting young players over veterans:

If it’s a tie then that means the young guy deserves to play too. That’s what you find out and you keep trying to create that as the season goes. That’s OK. Now, at certain positions you’d like for it to work its way out. You don’t hope for that on the offensive line because they’ve got to play together. At certain skill positions I have no problem letting that guy play for us.”

Breakdown of the positions that Herm thinks will be competitive (basically all of them):

“The wide receiver position is, I think, very competitive. The secondary will be very competitive. D-line I think is just a matter of rotation. The offensive line I think we kind of feel good about the guys we have and that’s just a matter of how guys participate and play. The line is always hard because you can’t really get a true evaluation of them until they get pads on. That’s when you really find out. Our return game is kind of important as is who is going to be our kicker. There are some spots.”

What has changed in Dwayne Bowe this off-season:

“I don’t think he was ever in a shell to be quite honest. He’s an emotional guy and plays with a lot of passion. He likes practicing football and likes playing football. That’s why you draft a guy like that. We said that last year. I think he’s more comfortable now in his second year. He had a pretty good rookie season for us. You like guys like that. It’s never negative.”

And finally Herm being Herm:

“I think it is good for our young guys going to the stadium and it’ll be good for them to get on a bus and go somewhere and practice like it’s a road game. Give ‘em a sack lunch and an apple and bring ‘em back like high school football. It forms camaraderie and that’s not a bad thing. Sometimes guys get stale and it’s good to change things.”
