While that may be true, I think most guys who realistically are locks to make the team (not just the starters), will pretty much get the night off after the 1st quarter. Since a lot of guys just got to practice on Thursday, I really expect the first game to be extra heavy on the undrafted free agents and 3rd stringers. Not that they don't play most of the 1st games ussually, but I really think they'll play more than usual.

I want to get out injury free, and really see the line on both sides have alot of push. I really like our direction this year with our youth.

But the starting lines will have to play at least a full quarter together to get some solid tape on them not to mention these are new lines.

Frankly the line play is the most important to me....I am curious about QB play but only because I can't seem to look away from a train wreck.

Kerrigan will be interesting and so will RB and WR
Kerrigan I would think would be limited in the first game coming off of injury. RB and WR would be part of watching for depth which I mentioned was probably the only interesting thing to watch for in game one. I have never really been able to get a feel for the team in any of the first preseason games outside of QB competitions, but Beck isn't going to play. You are right about WR. Austin and Kelly better look sharp or they are just one or two weeks closer to elimination.

Re: What should we be looking for/at in the 1st Pre-Season Game.

we should be looking at the obvious things

- John Beck
-The rookies; specifically Kerrigan (supposedly he isn't doing too well at OLB), Jarvis Jenkins (whose been very impressive), Hankerson, Helu, Royster, Paul and Robinson
- The New additions; Hightower who fumbles a lot, josh wilson who should be an upgrade over carlos, Chester at guard, Cofield at NT (can he still play it, and well?)
- Also Perry Riley; is he or can he start for us at ILB?

Matty brought up an article that said Beck was insisting he would play, which in itself would make the game interesting enough. You can't expect too much in the first game though.

Based on the practice report I think people should prepare to see Markus White dominate late in the game. Apparently his pass rush moves are destroying the younger guys while the veterans on the other hand are having an easy time handling him due to the fact that they're much more patient.

Either way be prepared on Saturday morning to hear about how White is the second coming of Bruce Smith.

Or wait for DB's postgame play by play videos that hopefully won't be reported to the NFL by no snitches. Remember snitches get kitches.

Injury free and get some semblence of what we have this year. Going to be an interesting one for sure. I do applaud the team for laying low for the most part and finally getting that they need to build the right way. Flashy free agent signings do not cut it.

I've been hearing from different media outlets like blogs.washingtonpost.com/redskinsinsider and rotoworld.com that kerrigans been coming along slowly and Lou Spanos has been all over him yelling at him daily. plus him getting injured doesn't help him get any better on the field...its already tough enough for rookies this strike year, lets not make it any shorter.

Ok.....yeah I heard Lou was all over him at the beginning of camp but haven't heard much since. I hope he pulls through......and I truly think he will.

And believe me I hope I'm wrong and your right about Kerrigan. I think he could be a Clay Matthews-like player, worst case a Matt Roth

Re: What should we be looking for/at in the 1st Pre-Season Game.

I think they will be treating this game like it's regular season. I can't think of anyone on the team that can be comfortable without giving their all out effort on Friday. Everyone seems like they have something to prove. This will be a good preseason game because the steelers always seem to get up for the redskins and regardless the steelers are the type of team that's too prideful to treat this like it's just another preseason game.

But I can't see any veterans on the redskins that will take the night off.
