Re: Victims of an extended preseason?

How about we take a breath and step back.

Let's evaluate where we are as a team, and where the players are individually, after five regular season games.

We've just put up with five 'meaningless' pre-season games.

If we are less than 3-2, you are going to hear some unhappy people, and then they will have a legitimate basis for griping.

J-dawg.

It doesn't matter if it's the regular season or preseason you can't please any redskin fans point blank. We could win by 35 points there somebody out there gonna say well Randle El could have caught that pass on 3 and 17. That's redskin fans!!!!

So for Manning's 3-4 plays you don't think he cares if he looks like complete crap ? Brady hasn't played because of his foot injury, and he strikes me as one who probably takes a certain amount of pride in his performance regardless of the circumstances.

Needless to say, I'm not buying this particular excuse. If there are legitimate problems, then that's one thing. We all knew there'd be growing pains with learning a new offense -- so let's be honest with ourselves and call it what it is.

But let's not blame outright ineptitude on apathy.

I don't think there is a question of guys not caring on this team.

I also don't think it's unreasonable to think that guys tire of the doldrums of the preseason the meaningless nature of the games, especially for the vets who have an established place on the team.

I'm not using it as a blanket excuse, just saying it's one of many factors.
