Longest... Preseason... Ever
 
This feels like the longest preseason to me. I'm sure it's partly because we started training camp before anyone else in the NFL this year, and partly because we started the preseason before anyone else with the HOF game.

But at the same time I think my appetite for football gets bigger every year. I just thank goodness we play the first game of the regular season!

Does this preseason seem like it's taking forever to you guys?

It's better than not having any football at all. that's the worse... I'll take seeing redskins anyway I can get it

this day feels like it's taking forever, so yes, the preseason seems like it's been going on WAY too long.
Of course the irony is that come February (after we win the Super Bowl) we'll all be complaining that the season went by too quickly.

Definitely agree Schneed. And then on the one hand it's great we get to start our regular season four days before everyone else (but the Giants)...but then we have to wait a week and a half for game 2...sigh

The NFL should play a 162 game schedule like MLB! Lazy bastards, WTF!

The season is just 2 weeks away from today, that's coming quick! Honestly I'm not sure that I'm ready for the weekly stress and all the ups and downs.

LOL...I would like to see an 18 game schedule though. The season is too short. 1 game makes too much of a difference. Not that 18 is much better, but it certainly helps.

About it being too long. I guess I haven't really noticed. I always knew the season wouldn't start til Sept. 4th, so that's my focus. Then again, I am probably the only one that dislikes preseason here.

From the recent talk I've heard on NFL radio an 18 game regular season with a 2 game preseason is definitely in the works and seems inevitable.

2 more games a year would be awesome! It would give fans more for their money and it would make the football season that much longer!! I'm all for it and I don't see who isnt. The players get paid enough money they shouldn't have ANY say. .. They should only do 2-3 preseason games and 2 extra regular season games. that wouldnt be any harder on the player than what they do now.

Waiting for Sep 4th is taking forever. I know I am usually impatient but this year seems unbearable. I really want to see the battle between us and the Giants. My expectations are way high for what that game will be on both sides of the ball.

4thGenRedskin21 08-21-2008 04:48 PM

Re: Longest... Preseason... Ever
 
I think the giants will be a step slower because they lost ALOT of key parts from last years defense, and they arent exactly a powerhouse on offense. We should rape the giants, seriously.. they lost a starting safety,starting DE, and starting LB... plus im sure they ost a few other players but teams dont usually do very good after winning a superbowl except the pats and im willing to bet that the Giants are very "giant" this year.. History is against them

If we could somehow only lose 1 division game, I would def say we are Superbow bound.. The games in our division are going to the be the hardest games on our schedule.. I know the cowgirls are the team to beat but teams better watch out ofr us too, seriously. We are a returning playoff team with a revamped offense. Our defense will be much improved over an already good defense. The pass rush will be crazy which will cause our secondary to look reallllllllll good. I see Landry leading the NFC in INT's and INT returns

the only problem with the Sept 4th game is on 9/7 Skins won't be part of all the action. Plus if we lose the 9/4 game I probably won't bother watching any games on the 7th. To depressed.
