The first-team units might not play at all in tonight's preseason game against the Chicago Bears. Make no mistake about it -- the fourth preseason game usually ends up being the most boring game of the year. I'm hoping we can reverse that trend a little bit this year by still sending the first-team offense out there for a couple of series. I think it's important for Mohamed Massaquoi to get his feet wet again, and I'd like Montario Hardesty to be tested one more time before the start of the regular season.
