You think he was visualizing the bench every time he ran lines or lifted a dumbbell? No way. The starting spot was Ford's before the fluke accident; it should be his when he returns. To take it away from him would be emotionally deflating.

In addition, Calderon has proven he can succeed in both the starter and back-up roles, so you have to believe his play would remain steady. He has a lot of experience preparing for a game off the bench; T.J., not so much.

'nuff said.

A player should never lose his job because of injury???? Ask the New England Patriots if we should abide by that philosophy.
