Re: What Happen to Your D

I think our D will be fine, its the offense and teams that I am a little worried about.

Re: What Happen to Your D

Hi guys, this is my first post, kinda feel stupid that it is responding to thread started by a dallas fan. However I feel the same way, everyone is making a big deal about these preseason games. While the injury situation is unfortunate, the actual losses don't really matter. The Colts currently are on an 8 game preseason losing streak. I don't hear people saying that their looking bad for the season. Also if you all remember in 1991 when the Skins won their last super bowl they went 0-4 in the preseason. Like some of you all were saying these games are for the coaches to guage what players will actually make the team. By the way is anyone else impressed with the play of Mike Espy, he has been a pleasant surprise. Being loaded at wide receiver hurts his chances but I hope he makes it. Anyways let me know what you all think.

I WAS impressed until all the drops last game. He alone stalled some drives that could have given Campbell more reps and the Skins more points.

Wow. The troll uses really poor bait and still manages to get a whole lot of bites.

1) Preseason
2) This coming from a Dallarse fan?
3) STILL Preseason.

I've never considered D'BOYZ a troll.

Well, consider him promoted to 'Troll'.

What else would you call obvious baiting?

Solid first post.

I'm not quite so much in the camp of "ah it's preseason, it doesn't matter." Preseason doesn't matter for the teams who manage to turn things around before the season starts. But if you're a team who gets overconfident and doesn't change the attitude, or can't pick up the system, or can't get healthy, or can't get timing down between QB and WR, then you're not going to turn things around before the season starts.

We're in a situation where something has to change for us to be able to look back on this preseason and say "see, that preseason we went 1-3, looked like crap, and still made the playoffs." If something doesn't change, we're going to look back and say that preseason was a harbinger of things to come.

We have to:

A) Figure out why we look so bad. Is it overconfidence, injuries, lack of motivation, not understanding the system, not having timing down between QB/WR, vanilla schemes, etc.

and

B) Fix it in a hurry. There should be a sense of urgency on the part of the coaching staff and the players to enact change. And we should not just simply assume it's going to happen.

The thing is we still have a few weeks, so there is time. It's not time to panic yet. But if we don't see some signs of improvement in the last two games, it's officially time to check our expectations for the season.

Re: What Happen to Your D

Apparently you do not know who our starters are.

1st preseason against the Bengals - 2 series played total of 19 yards given up.

2nd presason game against the Jets - 1st series 0 yards, 2nd series 40 yards, 3rd series 6 yards Total of 46 yards

Most Starters removed after 1st quarter.

So go back to defendeding the signning of TO and Concrete legs with your fabulous o-line.

CRT is back it is time to rumble.

i was more impressed with JIMMY FARRIS, that guy never drops a pass thrown his way. i would like to see him make the team.

ESPY has been hot and cold, he dropped a few very catchable balls last game.

What do I think? I think the same defense that humiliated your pathetic team in the most lopsided game in the rivalry improved over the offseason. What did you guys do besides get rid of your best lineman and pay Roy for getting older and slower?
