Dilfer’s short leash

I’m gonna guess that Trent Dilfer will start the game against Houston Sunday, and after the first pick, he’s gone…based on Charlie Frye’s surprise pre-season start.

“In preseason, we called on [Frye] at the last minute to see what would happen with him,” Crennel said. “If he gets called on at the last minute, I expect him to go in there and perform.” In preseason, Frye responded to a surprise start in Chicago by completing 12 of 14 attempts for 186 yards and putting 10 points on the board. He earned a 118.8 rating. But is he ready to start a regular-season game?

Yeah. He’s ready to start.
