At least there is something. What I really didn't like, in both games, is this feeling of not caring, of having no real fire, that we can just turn it on when we need to. Great teams do not have this mentality, no matter who their players are. Come on. That was the 4-12 Jets and we made them look like the ball-control skins of old. In our own house. Yes, it's preseason, and yes, evaluations, vanilla, etc. But where's the pride? Whenever you put on the skins uniform, you should bust your ass on every play, because that's the sort of team we want to be. Didn't see that tonight or last week. I assume Gibbs will light a fire, as will WIlliams and the rest. But it's gotta come from the players. All of them, all they way down to Todd COllins.

Rant over. At least it didn't count. :vomit:

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Not many. Guys that thought they could make the team because they were good on special teams better forget about that. Danny will be looking to field the guys from last year.

Positives :
  • We still can field the special teams guys from last year.
  • Doughty looked much improved.
  • Mcintosh looks solid, but not yet ready.
  • Brunnell didnt throw an INT.
  • Our biggest advantage may be game planning... and that isnt part of the preseason.

Maybe we should switch back to the red pants, we've lost our last three games where we've worn all white.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

The Schneed is officially a bit concerned. I'm not panicking because the 3rd preseason game is usually considered the big one, where Gibbs actually plays the starters and even game-plans a little bit. Last year we went 0-2 and then rolled in the 3rd preseason game. So I'll reserve complete judgment till then. It's almost as if Gibbs and Williams are purposely putting their guys in rough situations to humble them, preventing them from getting caught up in the hype. But that doesn't explain everything.

Positives:
I'm a little more convinced that Kenny Wright can hold up decently for Springs. I need to see more though.

The receivers were getting open for the most part.

The line protected Brunell pretty decently.

Negatives:
I don't care how vanilla the schemes are, there's no excuse for Frost's performance. He continues to be really inconsistent. Punter is officially a concern for us going into the season.

The special teams played like they couldn't care less. I'm sure that will be fixed this week though.

The QB-WR timing is still not in sync. This isn't really a big negative though, I don't expect it to be in sync yet. As long as the receivers are getting open, the timing will come around.

Only positive thing I saw was their hair looked great.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

i saw a few positive things last night...very few.. campbell had his moments except for when he threw it to david patten. i swear that patten "alligator armed" a few. seems like he doesn't want to take a hit.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

i thought mike rumph and kenny wright both did a pretty decent job. and our second team offensive line also had a big improvement over last week when they got steam rolled. its pretty obvious that saunders and company are showing nothing, and pretty much restricting the offense. i think an onsides kick and a double reverse in a preseason game is a bit much. everyone around here needs to relax until the real deal starts

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Positives plays (Defense):

-Wright's sack and a good diving trip-tackle on the next down.
-Washington's presence on most plays during the first two Jets possessions.
-Archuleta's sack: I thought he pretty quick getting to the QB.
-Carlos Rogers shows good recovery to the ball.
-Posey looks like a good pickup.
-Griffin walking off the field on his own.

Positive plays (Offense):

-Randle El enthusiastic peformance; 2 really good catches!
-Campbell's bounceback drive after throwing a pick.
-Rock Cartwright showing a little toughness.
-Brunell making a decent play with his feet and not turning the ball over.
-Betts looks good when tries to be aggressive.


Clearly more works needs to be done but there's still time to work on our "problems". We've all seen some dreamy pre-season's turn into nightmarish regular seasons.

Espy dropped like 4 passes that hit him right in the hands. He did nothing but play himself right off the roster.

In his postgame interview, Mark Brunell refuted the notion that "vanilla offense" is what's handicapping them. If the coaches are calling simple plays, then it should not require anything other than simple execution. So far, the starting offense has not demonstrated that. Other than 3 good passing plays (one to Lloyd last week, and two tonight to Randle El), the starters are having trouble going more than 3 play before having to punt.

One other thing -- pointing this out doesn't indicate "panic" or that we all need to "relax." It's an observation, that's all. The only one who showed anything close to panic tonight, was Joe Gibbs. What does that tell you?

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

lets look at it this way. straight up formations with little or no motion or movement. alot easier to play defense against. and the point about gibbs doesnt carry alot of weight because ever since coach gibbs has been here, does anyone ever remember a time when he has stated publicly that he was satisfied with his team?

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

We are experiencing the affects of change. We added quite a few new players, a new [or different] coordinator on offense and a 700 page playbook. When you have a group of players who have not had a lot of reps together to prepare for game like situations it takes time for all the pieces to come together. We also had a short camp with limited contact and players playing in games who were not here from the beginning. We are coming to see the pre-season hype has to be transformed into solid play on the field. I'm going to take all things considered and beleive that as we continue to become familiar with each other things will look better. Right now just about everyone is disappointed with the team for one reason or another but soon I think we'll begin to build on the momentum we established at the end of last season. We have good leadership on this team and I'm convinced that will be our salvation.
Pardon my rant, but I feel these factors are important to consider.
