Who cares. It's pre sesason. As long as no one gets hurt then I'm happy.

I wouldn't go that far. There are still things you can take away from these games. Rule number one: if a matchup isn't starter vs starter, then you can't read anything into it.

The score doesn't matter. But if our starting units (the ones that are healthy) don't look good against their starters, then I think we have some concerns.

Remember last year's preseason?

But for a first exhibition game, this just does not matter even a little bit!
Man, I'm with you. People are going to be highly disappointed if we lose this game.

Re: How do you think we size up for the 1st pre-season game next week against the Tit

Well alot of our startes will not be playing regardless. Portis, Moss, Thomas, Samuels, Washington probably are not going to play. But it will be a time for those reserves to step up (espcially on the OLine). I really think you will see a team that is hungry. I really think the limited time the starters will play they will be flying around trying to make things happen. Do we need to win? No! but I starters DO. They need to play well, play organized, and play hard.

Re: How do you think we size up for the 1st pre-season game next week against the Tit

I'm so much less interested in seeing how top groups perform this year than in years past. Now, I just want everyone #1 and #2 guy on the depth chart to come away from this game healthy. I'd love to see the Rock/Blaylock battle for a roster spot (if that's actually happening) play out during the preseason. Hell, I wouldn't mind seeing it in the first quarter. I don't want to see anyone limping away from this game.

I really want the preseason to feature Heyer, Espy, Rock and Blaylock.

I think the 2nd/3rd games we'll play guys for a half or more, and then barley again in the 4th...I just dont see us going overboard against the Titans in terms of who we play...no reason too, really. I defintley don't want to have a preseason like we did last season, and I think we need to play to win and get guys some reps, but I really don't see us doing too much next week. At home vs Pittsburgh/Baltimore we will play guys for a while.
I can see Landry playing for like 2-3 quarters, no?

I don't know how true this info is, but I've heard that Blaylock is way ahead of Rock right now.

Re: How do you think we size up for the 1st pre-season game next week against the Tit

What I think happens is we lose based on the fact that our offensive line depth is crap again this year.

Watching in the scrimmage this year, it's like our second team offensive line doesn't know the meaning of the word "gel". I think our first team offense and defense will play well and I feel like our defense will surprise some people.

I think we lose to the tune of 20-10 with our first team offense scoring once and backups scoring a field goal.

I think the rookies will play more, landry will probably get snaps with the starters and continue on a little while after the starters are gone. The rookies need more time out there to adjust to the speed of the game. Either way i truley beleive the starters will be ready to go and ready to prove something for the short time they are in there.

I've heard the same, be interesting to see how that shakes out. I believe we can keep both possibly, with CP's status uncertain...?

Also, Bradford an edge over Espy that will be cool to watch for the last WR spot.

Which QB is gonna roll first..? should happen any time.

Re: How do you think we size up for the 1st pre-season game next week against the Tit

Blaylock looked good in the scrimmage caught some passes picked up yards, but I agree maybe we should keep both. But watch out for Mason who also looked good this weekend, Rock cant let up he has two hungry guys wantint to make the team nipping at his heels.

I think Bradford will knock out Espy, espcially if Espy does not get on the field soon.

Honestly Collins should be gone first, I would say his time is passed but he never really had one. I see Bramlett going first unfortunately because I would love to see him and Palmer battle it out for a few weeks and both are better than Collins, with alot more potential.

can't the skins keep them both?can't they put at least 1 on the rookie squad and 1 on the active roster?

Here is a bad thought:

What if the 2 came at the expense of Campbell's ACL on a safety.
