But yeah, I disagree with benching Burrell when he's in a slight slump...he is a head-case already, so this certainly isn't helping.
Oh, I certainly agree, but I think he's gotta let him get out of the slump, like you said. Sometimes, this may backfire, too, when his starters can't get into a groove. It's great to get everybody on the team involved, though.
I quickly benched Burrell so that he doesn't use him to PH later or whatever. Learned my lesson about benching players who aren't starting after Hairston pinch hit two nights ago. Don't want them eating my game limits.
