Talking Re: Preseason 1991: Team Turmoil

Bet this wouldn't have happened if we had "56" on the defense!

(Hey, at a time like this, we could use a joke!)

Let's hope history repeats itself. We all had such hope before preseason. Maybe preseason is merely a smokescreen, and the Skins will come out on fire in September.
a Skins fan every day, every way.

Re: Preseason 1991: Team Turmoil

Are other teams game planning and we are not? I don't think so... but I could be wrong. We look weak in all phases, all the time. So maybe it's confidence and effort and hustle--things that we can turn on in the first game. We know that the defensive system works, and it's not new to the main players. And we're still getting housed, so it may be more mental and lack of a full play book.

But this offense has shown NOTHING. And it's new. THe 91 offense was not. So that is a real worry, IMO.

Gibbs is famously paranoid about showing things in preseason or open practices, so that may play into it (I hope!), but it's hard to feel good about things.
Hail from Houston!

Re: Preseason 1991: Team Turmoil

Well I appreciate this post. But you have got to keep one thing in mind. The NFL has changed alot since 1991...ie salary cap and not stashing players on ir and not to mention the schedule we benefited from that year. I am a little worried about what I have seen thus far in the preseason. Yes I know its preseason but you have got to have a little continuity heading into this season with all of the free agents we added. Also here is something else to keep in mind..........remember these three names mark carrier bruce smith jeff george deion sanders...that was the last time snyder opened his checkbook and what happened that season we stunk up the joint. Now lets move forward to 2005....hmmmmm....adam archelata (who got beat by every tight end the pats had last night) andre carter ( i think his best football is behind him) bradon lloyd (not sure about that one) and antwaan randle el ( won a superbowl last year and got his millions from synder) the similarities are there and if you ask me the results look to be the same thus far. just something to think about

Definitely understandable. I suppose it's also a combination of the skins having to learn a new offense, keeping it "simple", and maybe the absence of Portis has more effect on the offense than what we thought it would. I'm watching a bit of the game right now, and there isn't any serious game planning that I see.

I can tell you a big difference between the preseason and the regular season. Gibbs isn't likely to worry about halftime adjustments during the preseason.
Not the same Skinsguy that posts on ES.

Re: Preseason 1991: Team Turmoil

History is doomed to repeat itself at somepoint, 2. The colts and the Steelers had a terrible preseason last year,3. Last time the skins had a great preseason the coaches name was spurrier and thats all ima say about that, 4. 0-4 in the AFC last year, 5. none of these guys are nfc teams, 6. saunders plays took our terrible trent green and got him a pro bowl out of it, 7. the pats are 2 time superbowl champs and may just be that damn good period, 8. colts vs bengals 0-38 14-2 in the season 0-4 in the preseason, 9. 91 redskskins predicted to finish one of the worst in the nfl...win the superbowl, 10. Gibbs has always sucked in the preseason, 11. what team do u know that had a great preseason had a great regular season??? 12. Antwaan randle el aint getting enough pt...and its randle el not ward that snyder went out and brought! 13. Gibbs has won superbowls with 3 different qbs, Qbs who were said to be not nfl material basically! I meaen who in the fuck was Doug Williams? Remember the only great qb they had that year on paper was jay shroduer (or whatever his name is lol)

Finally, When Brunell goes down, Jason Cambell ironicly wears number 17..., and not only that I know this has nothing to do with it but the national championship that year Should of been SC Vs Auburn. I believe it will be Cambell and betts and moss....Im not really worried anymore...I dont think the ravens can win thursday either so yeah

Re: Preseason 1991: Team Turmoil

I am not worried. Preseason means nothing. Gibbs knows the purpose of preseason. He will have the team ready for the Vikings.

We have enough quality veterans on this team to know how to use the preseason to prepare for the regular season games. As has been written in many posts, we are playing vanilla offense and defense and showing very little.

The most important thing is to let the veterans have a few reps and avoid injury to key players.
Go skins!
