It's nice when the team you are going against announces they won't play their starting QB - at all. NY will sit Kerry Collins and start unimpressive Jessie Palmer and relieve him with Jason Garrett. New York isn't as focused on winning this as they are on finding a backup to Collins. NY head coach Jim Fassell is now 9-19 in preseason games. On the other hand, Brian Billick is 12-6. Billick has issued a call-to-action for his team. This week he said, "I am not happy with the performance [in week three]. We had no passion, no focus, no intensity, no physicality, no responding to adversity. We just had nothing." Despite his poor grammer, he made his point clear. The Ravens will show up this week.
