Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

Today is the day our season starts. What do you want to see in this game? Of course no injuries.., We have a camps that is filled with competition so all quarters should be will be worthwhile.

Any man-crushes you seen in camp that you hope to shine tonight?

There is always a game thread on this site, this is a pre game thread to get us started.

For Me I want the skins to be:

Competitive with the steelers
The lines needs to show progress
Score in the first series
less penalties

Players I look forward to seeing most:
That got ugly fast

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

I would like to see the offensive line hold up well and some sort of success on our first drive, not sure we need a score but a few first downs would be a good thing. I would like to see our new and improved D line get a good push upfront.

I think the #1 thing I want to see though is no injuries!

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

helu and hankerson... not expecting all that much from hank though. maybe next year.

hoping kerrigan isn't too rough, i dont think he'll be very good till game 6-8.

jenkins - i want to see action on the DL and expect him to hold it down.

jabar, he's a good receiver, but making sure he slides right in without any bumps is pretty important for our offence.

and OL... please stop the guys in front of you... please.

After months of drought and doubt, I'm just happy to see the Skins take the field again. Woo hoo! HTTR!
Bruce Allen when in charge alone: 4-12 (.250)
Bruce Allen's overall Redskins record : 28-52 (.350)
Vinny Cerrato's record when in charge alone: 52-65 (.444)
Vinny's overall Redskins record: 62-82 (.430)
We won more with Vinny

Seriously, don't really care who plays if I'm being honest -- just want to see some drives and some football. I'll wait to see how the team does from the next game.

More than anything I want to see the OL give whoever plays QB a little time to make their reads. A productive running game would be sweet as well.

I want to see Kellen Clemens throw 3 TDs in the 2nd half and add to the QB controversy

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

I want to see most of the rookies (Royster, Helu, Paul, Robinson, Hankerson, JJ, Kerrigan, Neild) and see who looks really good/good enough to make the team.

I want there to be no injuries of course

I want to see how good Cofield looks at the NT position.

I want to see if Riley is better than McIntosh.

I want to see the Steelers get serious injuries on there team, because I hate them!

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

I am excited to see how our front seven do. I think the lackluster performance of last year cannot continue this year, and i hope it doesnt.

What I really hope for is for one or two rookies to really stand out and have great games. Talent and youth can do alot for a franchise, tis just hard to mix the two and get production out of the jumble. Hopefully we have a couple rooks that will be premier players in this league.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

No injuries, want to see the rookies play. I want to be able to effectively run the ball and stop the run on d.

Re: Redskins vs. Steelers Preseason Pre-Game Thread

I'm dying to see how Hankerson performs. I fell in love with Malcolm Kelly's athleticism, his long frame, and his big hands. But of course he couldn't stay healthy. Hankerson has a similar build and I'm hoping he shines and has a successful career.

I also want to see:
how our run game does without Torain. This will be a good test against the #2 defense from last year. If we carve them up then I'll have great confidence in our running game this year.
Our defense,

Obviously I want to see no injuries at all

Hoping to see a good effort by our revamped defense. (particularly the D-line)
