I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I would like to see -

JC hitting DT consistently on the first series or 2 of each game

Clinton not carrying much at all, we know he can do it but I don't want the offense being based around him and his running.

Malcolm Kelly playing for a quarter + each game, getting into rhythm and showing some explosiveness

Sacks

Defensive Ints

Tom Brady on his back often in the 3rd game

A solid core of O-Line development. Not much of Samuels playing though. I want him to rest until he faces the Giants.

Finally, No injuries.

What is everyone else looking for?

I just want to see improvement on the offense because I believe the defense will take care of itself. I'm interested in seeing Colt Brennan playing alot more and Orakpo and Jarmon playing for extended periods of time to implemented to the speed of the game.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

When the first stringers are out there on offense I'll be looking at tempo, how they are getting in and out of the huddle, and a sense that they are more comfortable in what they are doing vs. last year at this time. I also want to see JC looking comfortable and decisive with where he goes with the ball. Drop back, 1, 2, 3 and the ball is out.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I agree with matty. I would like to see signs of less confusion. I don't want to be in a situation where Zorn shows that "deer in the headlights" look. I wan't to see signs of confidence in JC - putting the ball in tighter spots and letting the receivers make plays. I'd like to see the OL give him more time to make the big plays down field.

Just want to see some good execution in the passing game. If JC can stay off his back, that'd be a plus. Most importantly- NO INJURIES.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

Just the word 'injuries' gives me the shivers.

Admit it, it's in the back of everyone's minds. Chances are someone is going down in August, you just hope it's at a position with enough depth to get by and it's not a season ender. You always hate those day 1 of camp injuries too.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I honestly want to see Thomas and Kelly playing with first, second and third team. There's no better way for them to learn than being on the field. Not only that, playing against some (hopefully) inferior competition with the second and third teams might make them a lot more confident going into the season.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I just want to see a lot of the young guys out there after the first team is finished up. I want to see Thomas, Kelly, Davis and Mitchell doing well later on in games.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I want to see cool efficiency on the offensive side and shear havoc reeked on the defensive side. Mostly I'd like JC to be protected effectively by the OLine and the OLine to maintain a high level of health. On the defense I'd like to see AH eating up some double teams and Griffin getting interior push in single team. Getting some outside pressure from Orakpo/Carter/Jarmon would be nice.

Yeah but you have to weigh that against risking them to injury.

Not sure it's worth it. They'll get much more out of practice than playing with/against scrubs.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

NO INJURIES!!!!!!! is what I pray for round preseason. Second I want to see great fundementals from the offense and I want to see some swagger. I want to see more imagination from Zorn and his play calling and I want to see massive improvement in the red zone. I would love to see the emergence of a wide receiver...whether it is Thomas, Kelly or how about Marko Mitchell just breaking out for a big preason would be great. I love to seeing Horton, a late round guy last year cracking the starting line up early in the season, brings some excitement to the team.

It's true, but I really want to see them with some real competition against real teams. That's the thing I hate about preseason is that the injury bug ALWAYS seems to hit the Redskins at the wrong possible time on the wrong possible player.

Re: I know "Preseason doesn't matter", but if it did...

I'd like to see Kelly in extended action. When healthy I believe he's going to be a Marques Colston type of weapon and I'd expect to see that this year at some point. I truly think we've got the best WR corp in the division and with some consistent OL play, make some noise all year long.

My preseason prediction, that Jeremy Bridges beats out Randy Thomas for the starting RG spot.
