This is actually a good thing IMO. Between this and his scrambling effort, I feel good about his health thus far. Overthrows in preseason don't scare me, it's the wobbly lame ducks that strike fear into your heart...

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.

Keep that positive attitude 66 that's what we need. When we're winning we're grinning, when we're loosing we're crying. Just a couple weeks ago we were talking SB and even JG suggested everyone bring it down, now after two less than spectacular performances we're all stressed out.....Chill....It's going to be alright.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

A neutral: 23 play drive netting 3.3 yards/play. This is < 10 yds/3 downs. This kind of yardage should kill a drive. Only kept going because they went for it on 4th down (which I don't think would happen in the regular season) and a defensive penalty (if I remember correctly.)

NEGATIVE: I guess they didn't have their 1st-string officiating crew in there. While their decisions were fine, their announcements sounded like they were recruited from the World Cup.
Never have seen any which seemed more clueless.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

I actually think for a weeks worth of work (and granted against no namers) mike rumph looked pretty good. He was hitting hard and all over the place. He may end up being a very valuble nickel corner. He's gotta be as good as Walt Harris, and the guy can hit...

It's hard to judge a team by the preseason, but it seems like Campbell does not get rattled at all. I mean he looks like he's just moseying around dumping balls off completely unaffected by the looming linemen and backers closing in around him... which is a welcome sight.

I think he just needs to learn to make better decisions with his balls (I think we could all make better decisions with our balls) and he'll be a contender.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Campbell's arm look amazing. I hope he starts for us for his entire career once he gets the chance.

Who knew Sellars could run so well? I tried him out on Madden after the game (against the Colts and Bucs) and he can run on there too!

Randel El looks great AND excited to be a Redskin. He'll be great for us. Does anyone know if he'll be the kick returner? Espy's been returning when I saw and he may not make the team...

Sellers is a textbook physics example! Force = mass x acceleration! At 260 pounds, when he gets up to speed, he's gonna bowl people over! The trick is to get a big head of steam going before he hits anybody...

Randle El will be the punt returner and Betts likely the KR, though while Ladell is starting in place of Clinton (and maybe indefinitely, if they're afraid of Clinton's shoulder flaring up), someone else (Nemo?) will be handling KOR's. They like dudes who can break tackles on kickoff returns, but favor the shiftiness and speed of a guy like Randle El on punt returns.

He's a little slow for my taste in Madden, and he seems to drop a lot of passes. Hopefully in '07 his hands will be improved.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

There were definitely some positives from the game that encouraged me.

First of all, B Lloyd was given the night off so the staff could take a better look at ARE, right? Well, Randle EL had two nice catches pretty easily, so that shows me that Saunders is going to be able to achieve what he sets out to do even if he's running vanilla schemes. That looks really positive.

Archuletta brought some pressure and had that nice sack. With either Arch or Sean Taylor bringing the heat from the safety position, I'd say QBs are going to be extra wary.

Jason Campbell rebounded really well from his pick and led a nice drive. He could have engineered a few more drives had Patten and Espy made some catches. For the most part, Jason looked pretty accurate and made good decisions. A lot of balls were dropped that should have been caught, and Patten short armed a few, so I'd say Campbell is progressing pretty well.

And lastly, Mike Rumph wasn't the man or anything, but he certainly wasn't what Niners fans made him out to be, so maybe, the change of scenery and better coaching will do him well. I don't really remember him from his days at the U, but if he was a first round talent, hopefully, GW will bring that out of him.

I've decided I just flat out hate pre-season! It makes everyone question the team, the coaches, if we are really good or not. We can't see our 1st string play for real, and when they do play they only play for 5mins and you can tell they don't care at all about winning. When I watch the Skins Iím involved, Iím watching intently, I canít wait to cheer and yell and watch them make a great play. It just doesnít happen in pre-season. It's upsetting, it crushes morale! I HATE PRE-SEASON. I'm not turning on another game until 9/11.

Re: Any Positives From Tonight's Game?

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan myself honestly. It's good for a fix, but after the first screw-up and third stringer action, I'm ready for real games to start.

I'm still worried about Archuleta in general, but the man has some closing speed when blitzing. I was excited to see that.

good god almighty man, what you thinking when we were 5-6 last year? I mean, I would have to belive you stopped being a skins fan all together.

0-1 and we are "in big trouble" sheez

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.
We've only used the first 10 pages of the playbook (vanilla)....opening day against Vikes we'll see "Rocky Road" chocolate, mixed with vanilla, mixed with various nuts, marshmellows, with sprinkles on top... the Vikes defense and all other defenses won't know what is happening
