I know one way Doc has tried not to burn out the starters during the regular season is to limit practices.

However, with so many new faces on the team this year, and  a big deficiency in defense evident  after the season opener, I hope he changes or modifies this approach.

Maybe have more practices but have KG and  other vets familiar with the system act as asst. coaches?

All I know is, giving up 120 pts  in a  season opener against anyone is not a good sign  for a  team that believes it wins with D.
