Skins leading the NFL in total offense & defense
 
Yes of course, it's only preseason. But regardless it's still a bit of a surprise to see.

Even with our ones playing a lot of twos, it's still been better than expected.

The bigger story here is that our second and third teamers have been consistently better through two games than anyone elses. Does that mean anything? Not really. A lot of those guys are getting cut anyway. But it's worth noting*.

There seems to be a different attitude, a more cohesive O line, stiffer D, everything just seems 'shinier' somehow.

Yes, it's preseason but it gives us hope.

Exactly, Shanahan has completely changed the expectations -- let's not forget that our offense has a lot of new pieces and the D-line has basically been remade so I think that balances out any inferior competition we are playing. Let's hope it lasts into the regular season.

Time for the negatives:
2010 San Diego chargers led the league in offense and defense and still didn't make the playoffs so...

Will Montgomery was on NFL Radio this morning with Ross Tucker. There seems to be a quiet confidence coming from the players, heard the same kind of thing from Hightower the other day too.

I'm not sure how this season is going to go as far as wins and losses, but I do think the Skins are going to be a tough out.

Key words there. I'll think more of it if we look like this in the regular season.

Encouraging but it is preseason. The third game of the preseason is the best gauge of how the team will look in the regular season. Most teams play their starters for three quarters. The Ravens are relatively healthy, so we will see their best. I think the team is making strides, I want to see how they look Thursday.

This. While preseason scores do not count, we have a new "youngry" attitude which will keep us in games. We may lose games because of lack of experience or talent but we should compete.

A few years ago Detriot went undefeated in pre season and went 0-16 in the regular season. We all remember Osaka. Back in 87 we played like shit during the pre season and won the SB. Anyone remember the Playboy incident with Gibbs and Buckhanz?? Pre season games mean nothing, teams aren't game planning. However there are some very nice bright spots in camp this year.
