RELAAAAAXXXXXXXXXX, Guys!!!

I can't believe the stuff I am seeing here on a REDSKIN fan site!!

"Extremely disappointed"

"Hasselbeck should be the starter"

"Can't take this"

many, many, many more. What's up with you guys??!!?? C'mon, have a little FAITH!!! And try to realize, this is the FIRST PRESEASON GAME OF 5... Jeez. If this were the 4th of 5, then I could see it. Don't panic, they've just STARTED practicing, have a long way to go, a lot more rust to get off, and a LOT more plays to add. They never even had an entire first string in (at least the guys like Taylor that will be first string when the season opens.) Relax, be patient,
.....................................ENJOY!!!!!!!! !!

I agree, man, but c'mon! we've been waiting for this day for a long time, so over-reactions are to be expected!

But the loss of Jansen is a major deal.

Yeah, Jansen really hurt. But at least they have time to get his replacement ready. Any with Bugel, he WILL be ready LOL.

we all agree that its early. and are moving ahead now. but that doesnt take away from the fact that during the game we were frusterated. As well we should be. expecially people fighting for a starting job. they cant go out there and play like crap. gibbs isnt going to start a guy and say 'its ok you sucked in preseason, go ahead and start'

No, but he is not going to panic after one game. Way too early. He will stick with his QB plan through the first 4 games. Things will look a LOT different by then. And if after 4 games, both guys still are flat, Hasselbeck is still there.

As far as being frustrated, I really think some of you expected way too much. I saw a lot of rough play, but expected it - there ALWAYS is this early. I also saw some encouraging play. And I enjoyed the hell out of watching the game.

And as far as the fumbled snaps, etc., if you have ever seen a first preseason game, you have seen that... it gets better. Were you totally exhuberant after Spurrier's preseason start 2 years ago?? Look what happened. Means nothing.

Guys remember that camp just started.....Gibbs has always been known to be "vanilla" in the preseason.

I tend to be one of the bigger pessimists on this site, but I think everyone is overreacting to tonight's game. First of all, it is just the first preseason game. Second of all, our defense turned the ball over three times, scored a touchdown, allowed only 1 touchdown, got pressure on the QBs, and was overall an improvement over last season. Third, we won the game. Fourth, its only the first preseason game. Fifth, its only the first preason game.

Re: Jansen
Jansen being out sucks. Kenyatta Jones will probably take his place. Our starting O-line should still be decent with Samuels, Dockery, Friedman, Thomas and Jones.

Considering that Brunell, Ramsey and Hasselbeck had same amount of time to learn Gibbs' offense....I believe Hasselbeck showed better knowledge of how Redskins' offense should be run. I'm not saying Hasselbeck should be the starter, but if regular season started next week....I would have to go with Hasselbeck. Also, it's a shame about Jansen. He worked his tail off to showcase his talent this year. I wish him a speedy recovery.

The O has a long way to go! Gibbs has known this from the very start back in Feb. Right know it is 11 guys going in that many ways. Like a dance they need to move together. Learn what Gibbs is trying to do. Luck has it thay have four more games and five weks to get it done!

I think the REAL reason everyone was a little frustrated with the game tonight is simple... we DID suck on offense BIG TIME for the first 3 quarters... and the Broncos DIDN'T... although both teams have been in camp the same amount of time.

I think at one point in the 3rd quarter we had 68 total yards compared 228 by Denver... or something like that... then Hasselbeck and the 3rd stringers stepped in and everything changed. The fact that the 1st AND 2nd string were BAD tonight IS a LITTLE disconcerting. I am pretty sure that while Brunell and Ramsey were in for almost 3 quarters combined, we only had like 4 or 5 FIRST DOWNS.

We all know it was just the first preseason game and we've only been in camp for a week or so... I just think people were disappointed because they had no offensive plays to cheer for with the first 2 units in... no one is jumping ship... but of course anyone who loves their team gets frustrated when they don't even get first downs to cheer for, much less TDs. Not the end of the world... just frustrating to watch.

With all that said... everyone SHOULD DEFINITELY be freaking out about Jansen being gone. I don't know if I am the only person to point this out on this site... but we now have a left-handed starting QB (for all intensive puposes) and right tackle blocks his BLIND SIDE!! To say losing him won't be THAT big of a deal and saying Bugel with throw Kenyatta Jones or whoever else in there and get them ready is the ULTIMATE optimist... and I hope their faith is on point.

HTTR. I hear what you're saying about us losing Brunell's blindside protection with Jansen going down.

But here's what I'm wondering. Is that whole notion of blindside protection overrated? I mean everybody remembers perennial Pro-Bowler Tony Boselli during Brunell's best years in Jacksonville playing left tackle, but how many people remember that Leon Searcy (who I don't think ever made the Pro Bowl) protected Brunell's blindside at right tackle.
