For the record I wouldn't know who performed better in practice or not. But if it was Zaire, then he absolutely deserves to start regardless of perception or PR problems.
Although I'm no fan of Kelly, I'm personally sick of seeing Golson consistently ignore and otherwise disrespect his coach every time he comes off the field and Kelly tries to speak with him. For better or for worse Kelly is the coach and Golson needs to show leadership. He absolutely doesn't.
