What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
1) No injuries
2) A touchdown drive led by Jason Campbell
3) 3.0 ypc against the 1st team D
4) Two turnovers forced
5) No injuries

Hahahaha....nice.

I'd would say a win would be the 1st team D showing they can stop the run, get pressure and not let QB's make it rain over our secondary. On the other side of the ball, I would say that JC leading a TD drive, completing some medium/deep passes and showing some repoire with the WR's.

Oh, and Smoot picking VY. That would make me consider the game a win.

I'm going to go w/#1 only. All the rest is gravy at this point.

I get the impression that Gibbs' strategy this preseason is to bring them along slowly in the physical aspects. I don't expect a lot of rust in this first game, but I don't expect any of the starting units to be very sharp either. By the 3rd & 4th game of preseason I expect to see a different team.

Playing well. I dont even care if we play better than the Titans or not, as long as we seem like we're playing well and somewhat smooth and progressing, I'll be happy, its only our 1st preseason game....Last year it was very clear that we were not on the same page....If we even stay even with Tennesee with our starters and our depth plays ok, I'll be fine with that. I wont read seriously into anything til the Pittsburgh/Baltimore games...but if its clear we're not playing well, I will not be happy.

Re: What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
A win is Jason Campbell continues on his journey to become a franchise QB. You have to have an elite player at that position in today's NFL. IMO.

Re: What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
#5 is the top definitely the top "win" for this first game.

Here's my short list:
-Having the D-line soundly stop the run would be a pleasant surprise.
-Two bomb throws by JC to Lloyd and ARE would be comforting.
-INT return for a TD by Smoot will be welcomed.
-My 2 year old singing "Hail To The Redskins" without missing any words would bring tears to my eyes.

I don't know about that. Last preseason, we heard excuse after excuse as to why the Skins looked like poop. We know how that turned out.

Some teams can look real good in exhibition. Pittsburgh and Dallas looked pretty sharp in their first preseason games. Why can't we for a change?

Re: What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
1. No Injuries
2. Players playing well, minimal mistakes for the rookies and progress for Campbell, McIntosh
3. A win

Well two years ago the Colts went 0-5, but started out 13-0. Some teams like the Redskins need to win in the preseason to build confidence, but some teams like the Colts don't have to prove anything in the preseason because they know they are already good.

We just need to show that we dont suck, plain and simple. The 1st teams on O and D need to show that they have progressed and are prepared to win games.

I really don't think its so much about WINNING, as it is about playing well. I mean as long as we play pretty well for the first half, than we know were in good shape, and a win dosent really mean a whole lot (I guess it could be different for the 3rd preseason game)....but if we go out there and get smacked 41-0 like we did last year, or outscored 14-0 with our starters in and then make it not look so bad with our 4th stringers, thats a wayyy different story...

I dont think the preseason "wins" are somthing you really can boil down and say...its successful if this, this and this happen. I think you see the game and you can pretty much tell from there. I dont expect us to be GREAT tommarow, but I would like to see a team that is playing together, moving hte ball and stepping it up on defense.

Right. None of us want that.

I keep wondering what my opinion will be if we get walloped and shellacked or something. If the starters do nothing but go 3 and out, while Gramps and the Fat Man (Griffin and Salave'a) get trampled up the gut, that's when the fecal matter hits the rotary device on this site.

no one gets hurt. the offense moves the ball and actually scores. The defense stops the run and stop the titans on 3rd down. Maybe a pass rush. But i dont want to be greedy.

Re: What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
1) No injuries. This is first and foremost. While I agree with Gman that Id like to see some sort of smooth flowing offensive signs, I'm not concerned about it yet. The offense always takes a while to come around and this will become paramount in preseason game 3.

2) A good look at some depth on this team. Games 1-2 you can always see what kind of players you have behind your starters which I find interesting. A lot of these guys are fighting for a spot and going to be playing hard.

airsoftking 08-11-2007 04:20 AM

Re: What's a "win" for this first preseason game?
 
To me the fact that JC won't play the entire game but only the first quarter or smth like that, is a real pain in the a**. If we wanna be sure he's ready to lead the team as a good quarterback this season it'd be nice to see him play a little bit longer. Anyway it's just preseason but....
