Willingham confirmed that Savannah, Ossai and Bulyca all did not start for discplinary reasons. Sounds as if Davenport was benched after the second play, when he gave up the long TD to Thomas, for some sort of non-injury reason, as well. Willingham said only that he was not "comfortable'' with Davenport out there. Kent Baer said "you'd have to ask him'' when asked why Davenport didn't play after that play.
Sounds like a guy that is losing control of his team if you ask me. Bulyca, and Savannah were benched for a series a couple of weeks ago for disclinary reasons.
Davenport gets benched the entire game on the second play when your defense gives up 48 points? You have to ask Davenport, or do you have to ask Willingham?
The defense was baffled and couldn't figure out the coverages when coaches tried to mix things up – three down linemen, nickel package, penny package. Guys were clearly confused. Why didn't Davenport return? Why wasn't Stevens – an obvious play-maker – playing more?
Why exactly isn't Chris Stevens playing more?
Are the coaches playing the best players every week?
