Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

i have to say, none of our new defensive acquisitions, Andre Carter, Rocky McIntosh or the new DBs, looked very special. this was the Jets!

My brother-in-law made some really good steak sandwiches for our tailgate (no mayo). That was positive.

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:

Here Here dude. I think its good these bums are out there, if it werent for their disposable bodies Id say cut them now but if they want to be out there and taking those hits so our 1st 2nd string arent fine. But the axe has to drop on many.I can tell by the lack of post from us that we all are disgusted by them right now. When they play like shit I feel so incomplete. This is not what I bust my ass for all year and week leading up to the game to see my Skins get out played and embarrassed like that. I live in Baltimore and Im sure I will have to punch out the first person who brings up that Jets game to me next. This is also why I cant go to preseason games.

Theres nothing to really say beyond this already. ITs gonna be a long week for everyone. Im so upset I dont even wanna talk or think Skins for a while. What a damn disappointment.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

We have yet to see our starters out there for a prolonged period of time where they can take control of a game, Gibbs is notorious for holding back the offense in the pre-season, I really am not worried at all with our starters, AA looks like he's perfect for what Williams want's out of him at saftey, he gets to the QB awfully fast and he has very good closing speed, the funny thing about that is Reed Dougherty looks and runs an awful lot like AA I think he has a good chance to stick.

On the negative side our backups may be the worst in the NFL at least when it comes to line play.

Collins is bad, the Jet's weren't really playing any defense and he still couldn't do much, I will disregard that TD to Ortega the Jets were laying back and the defender fell down anyone on this site could have made that throw. But I do like Ortega though, he's a little light right now but he has very good speed and quickness for a TE, if he can block at all I think he makes it.

Espy looks very good and will only continue to get better, nice free agent signing, Jacobs who?

Now to maybe the disheartning aspect of the team, specials, our specials are simply disgusting, I truly believe it's time to send danny packing, we are not talking rocket science here, the guy has alway's struck me as a below average coach at best.

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.
