Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008
 
Other than the obvious Redskin football 2008 is about to start...Yee Ha!

This is an exciting time of the year to see if the team is progressing and picking up the new offense Coach Zorn is installing early on. As it appears we will be seeing quite a few starters for at least a few drives on both sides of the ball tonight.

I hope this is Jason's year to take the next step, he will be the key to our success on offense. He has to make the Zorn transition, be a leader, make smart decisions and take control of this offense. I hope we see a small taste of that tonight.

I don't see any drop off in defense, if anything I see our Redskins being improved. If Greg plays the talent he has at there strengths, keeps it simple, and we can stay healthy I see a great season for the D.

Then we get to see some of the young talent & even a few vets that are close, fighting for a spot. That to me is always fun to watch, the competition at many positions is very close, who steps up. This roster will have to be cut down before you can blink an eye.

Lets hope for a good showing for a drive or two from our starters tonight. And a little more progression every pre-season game, this is one year (Never thought I'd say this) I'm glad we have 5 pre-season games to work on the system, this could be a big benefit for the team. Of course we can only pray for the injury bug not to bite.

Your thoughts on the game and the longer pre-season?

Sweet football.

I would like to see this game as more of a Training Camp competition imo. A lot of promising rookies that need to be seen with real game experience.

This is for sure the most stoked I've been for a preseason game ever! I want a W baby!

First and foremost, I want to see an injury-free night of football. Last time we played in the Hall of Fame game, we saw Jon Jansen get hurt and placed on IR. Tonight, I don't want to see anything like that, especially seeing that Stephon Heyer will be playing in place of Chris Samuels. Granted, Dwight Freeney isn't playing, but I'm still not happy with the fact that Heyer will be protecting the blindside of our team's linchpin.

Yeah, I agree with that whole heartedly. No injuries>winning the game

I really wanna see us win too...just because of how the weekend went so far...i'm assuming hte crowd is going to be all Redskins fans, so it should be fun.

Although I always want our team to win, especially after this HUGE REDSKIN weekend, that would be a bonus!

But,that is the least of my thoughts. I would like our first team to look fairly sharp, even though it's early. Of course no injuries is primary.

And I'll be paying close attention to some of the up and coming talent that has a chance to make the team.

But no worries Gmanc, we will have more points on the board than the colts do at the end of the 4th quarter! :)

could care less about this game, or any preseason game. Spurrier ruined preseason games for me for life.
I just hope no one important gets hurt. Other than that, I look forward to our first real game of the season.

I liked the first drive and the way Campbell played while he was in the game

offense looks like it's on track... QBs/run game nailing it.

horton looks like he might be a nice find too, and zorn still hasn't shown me anything to make me think he's not going to be a good head coach... we'll see though.

Yup. While everyone has focused on Horton, Jackson, and Brennan, the story of the day is JC. He looked very sharp, even if he played in just 2 series.
