You're right on target, did you write this article on the WT?

Quote:
"Most of what we do from a preparation and play-calling standpoint is designed for us to get an evaluation of players doing specific things," Saunders said. "We devised some plays for Mike Sellers so we could see him lead block and see him run the ball, and we did the same for Antwaan Randle El to put him on the perimeter. We were pleased with some of the individual phases of what we're trying to accomplish."
Just to elaborate a bit more, different teams have different preseason agendas. Some teams go a bit more all-out (what's up with all the reverses and flea-flickers?) and some teams like the Redskins are in evaluation mode.

If you get too caught up in the final scores, you're going to be very disappointed. If you focus on individual performances, you'll be much more on target as to what the preseason means to this staff.

Ahhh! Sweet, do you notice that Saunders and I are never in the same room at the same time?

I agree with you on most everything,scores dont matter,but I'd still like to see better results from our starters,if brunell came in and did what Bledsoe did in his first game we'd all be going ga-ga saying how great we are,if theres no concern then why was Gibbs so frickin upset? many post on here said theyve never seen him like that,is he going for an oscar? i'm not anywhere close to panic mode right now but I am very concerned

Re: Tony Romo

I wouldn't, and I think most of us keep things grounded here. I know we'd all feel good on the outside, but most of us are fairly knowlegeable and know that there are so many factors that we don't know applying.

Re: Tony Romo

I think we need not get to worked up by the preseason results so far as backrow as made a strong point. Hell ,I live in Southern California (Raidier Nation #2) and everywhere I go I keep hearing Raider fan claiming super bowl after a 3-0 preseason start. How many of you seriously really think Oakland will be better than a .500 team?

Get real. That won't happen.













Andre Carter will kill Bledsoe, Taylor will take out Owens.

I don't mean to quote myself but...
