Good read & points. Besides no injuries what are things your looking for.

Well, Kellen Clemens has been in this offense for all of a week now, Beck isn't playing, and other two QBs are UDFA rookies. So my concern is how we handle Grossman's playing time. Because when he comes out and any of the other 3 guys goes in there, it's gonna be really ugly. So we either need to be content with ugly and not risk Grossman... or Grossman is going to have be in there for a while. Not sure I'm ok with either of those scenarios.

I think overall it will be a sloppy game just because it's preseason game 1 and the lack of preparation will be evident.

I like to see the 1st team defense look sharp for however short a time they're in there. I'd like to get a look at the ILB depth in particular. I'd also like to see the receiver rotation, and hopefully Hankerson will be some balls thrown his way.

A. No Injuries

B. Since I expect them to keep their schemes rather vanilla in the preseason, and especially in the first game, I want to see how they execute the basic schemes so far.

C. As listed in the article, individual performances. Namely the new starters, especially the big one on one battles, like T.Will against Harrison, etc.

D. No injuries, this time for emphasis. We are playing the Steelers, and even though it's preseason, it might not matter to a guy like James Harrison, etc.

I want to see the first team get some reps together. This isn't your typical preseason, and it hasn't been your typical offseason. I really want our players to build some chemistry. I'd rather take a chance with injuries and let some chemistry build in a game environment than be overly caution. More concerned with the chemistry on offense than defense.

Ummm what?..... U don't wanna see too much progress ? I'm confused

No injuries.

A bit more promise with the first team offense.

Signs of better 3 4 personnel.

New rules and their impact on the game.

We also should be looking forward to some redskins football! Can't wait. I will be in cancun but I will be the only loser trying to stream the game.

Woww what's this Skins101 site I'm bookmarkin this...

And they list Atogwe... very true he's Elite but he's with a new team/system abd his roles important and indeed hell be watched.
But my biggest concern in our secondary is Mr Josh Wilson...

And we need LaRon back. Were on the brink of preseason/season. God we need him.
People don't realize we have a really nasty secondary in place.
OJ / LaRon / Hall / Wilson / Buchanon / even Doughtys a nice backup S.

I'll be interested to see how teams approach this preseason vs ones in the past. These games are more important than they've ever been.

Rookies rookies rookies, they are the newest in the family...cant wait to see what they bring.

Want to see who steps out with the first team and how the new starters play (Beck, Riley, Chester, OJ, Montgomery)

I would like to see some dominant line play on both sides of the ball from the starting squads......................please...

Not expecting or looking at much if Beck isn't playing. First game is a virtual waste as nobody that will actually play come 9/11 is going to see the field for more than a handful of plays. Maybe just see if our second and third stringers show some promise is what I will be looking for. Beck is the biggest question mark in peoples' minds and I guess he isn't playing.

I disagree...due to the lack of a significant offseason, it may be likely that teams with new additions to their offensive lines will try to establish cohesiveness.....I wouldn't mind seeing a full half of Oline starters....what I think will happen is a full quarter of the starters and a couple key shifts in Q2 to see how well they do with the starters as a viable competition...this may occur with the guards and the right tackle spot.

But the starting lines will have to play at least a full quarter together to get some solid tape on them not to mention these are new lines.

Frankly the line play is the most important to me....I am curious about QB play but only because I can't seem to look away from a train wreck.

Kerrigan will be interesting and so will RB and WR
