We can look at any way we want. My point is, the players and the coaches don't look at it like, "it's just preseason, don't worry about it," or, "chalk it up to a 'vanilla' offense." That's called fan-speak. Trust me, anyone who puts on a uniform with their name stitched on it can't be anything but ashamed by their performance over the past two games, preseason or not.

And there's a difference between Joe Gibbs' propensity for cautious skepticism and being straight out pissed off at the way his team looked.

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.
That's fine, but like everyone has been saying -- we're running a VANILLA offense! You can't dismiss the offense's performance to a complex playbook when all we keep hearing is that the plays are too simple or "vanilla."

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

from the looks of the starters that were sitting on the bench in the latter part of the game, they didnt seem to concerned about a whole lot. they understand that players make up a sucessful situation, and some of the players that participated last night will not be around come opening day.all im saying is the final product is far from what we saw last night

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Havent seen the game yet because I have no local market here, but I'll catch the NFL Network rerun @ 2 today.

Really, really not worried about the preseason at all.

Is Griffin OK? Has anyone heard?

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

If anyone is actually upset about this game...
It IS preseason. Super Bowl year we went 0-4 and Gibbs was furious the entire training camp. Mark my words, this is all going according to PLAN. Minnesota better look out.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

The biggest positive from last night is that Gibbs is pissed. With his skills, I am confident that will translate into a more motivated team.

Other positives:

* Campbell -- especially the way he came back from the INT. What I love about JC more than anything else is his poise and confidence. He has a presence that Eli Manning will probably never have. JC makes me very excited for the future. I'm a huge opponent of ever using any first round pick on a QB. JC is an exception to that.
* REL's play.
* Riggo's color commentary (he and Patrick should replace the current MNF crew -- Riggo does a better job of what both TK and JT do, he is a 2for1 deal). Sure, the constant plugs for his radio show were a bit over the top, but it was actually self depricating humor.
* No bimbo sideline reporters (btw, when I am elected King of the World, my first act will be to outlaw bimbo sideline reporters). Although I would make one huge exception: http://www.thewarpath.net/warpath-pa...au-thread.html (Dedicated Ramona Chorleau Thread)
* Thrash.
* Collins put himself more securely in the #3 slot. Maybe there is a deal to be made w/ the Jets for Bollinger (who is unlikely to make the team). Not a big fan, but he sure as hell is better than TC.
* Sellers is a stud as FB. I really like how Saunders is using TE/FB as opposed to the H-Back approach. It is more specialized and that part of the game is looking pretty good.

On the less than positive side:

* The game looked like crap on my HDTV. OMFG, they even cut off the top scoreboard. It looked worse than the Skins did.
* Patten not only probably cost himself his job, but he put a pretty big dent in any trade value.
* Espy took a step back on a night when he had a chance to win a roster slot outright. He isn't done yet, but he could have been in and those opportunities don't come along that often.
* The defensive and ST break downs. This was both mental error stuff and football fundamental stuff (tackling 101 -- some of these guys should sign up for a subscription to Bill Parcell's Back Yard Drills).
* Not enough close up shots of the smokin hot cheerleaders during the broadcast (although, because of no HD, not that big a deal). I mean come on, the game was ugly. Let's entertain people.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

I cannot tell how the team is playing in preseason , didn't we score 40 pts per game under Spurrier , and it was no indication on the perfrormance those years . I'am concerned that A. Carter has not been a factor as a pass rusher in two games .

What if they're all great actors and throwing these games so teams prepare for us differently. They say its vanilla, so maybe on sept. 11th they'll add some hot fudge......lol

Excellent point, and it probably hasn't been made enough. Carter, and the D-line has applied about as much pressure on the quarterback as it did the last two seasons -- not nearly enough. While they haven't been on the field all that much in the last two games, they played the full first half last night and didn't look much better.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Campbell's arm is ridiculous, he leans back too often though like he's shooting a fadeaway jumper or something. But man, what an arm

Was it just me or after the first play from scrimmage on offense when Betts got stuffed did Thomas raise his hands as if to say "What the hell play are we running?" Like there was some miscommunication

I'm not worried about the offense really, but the special teams is abysmal.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Our back-ups are the worst back-ups in the league. They are all horrible outside RB and WR. I like the depth we are adding to the backfield but all those players couldn't even come close to handling a number 1 WR in this league. I don't understand when or how our depth sucks so bad. Our back-up o-line is disgusting. DISGUSTING.

I was at the game and when grif was on the groud i didn't know who it was because the trainers were crowding him. I called up a friend at home he said it was griffin and they went to break. After a few minutes griffin gets up and runs back to the sideline. Actually runs, i am not sure if that was on tv. After the game griffin was golf carted to his car.
