After watching about a half hour’s worth of the final week of preseason, some truths have surfaced in such a short time.
Truth: RB C.J. Spiller should start for the Bills in Week 1. Hard to fault RB Marshawn Lynch for looking a little rusty after missing so much time, but Spiller makes this team so much fun to watch. The Bills without Spiller is like eating a Wienerschnitzel chili dog without the pretzel bun. You just do not do it.
Truth: RB Ahmad Bradshaw should start at running back for the Giants. And it looks like he will. RB Brandon Jacobs is an annual disappointment. A guy who should be awesome, but just continues to disappoint. Like WWE superstar Shelton Benjamin, Jacobs is nothing more than a mid-carder. Bradshaw could be a headliner.
Truth: You might want to start players going against the Patriots defense. There were tougher defenses playing flag football at the NFL.com company picnic on Tuesday.
Truth: The Patriots have great tight end depth. TE Rob Gronkowski is the real deal.
