Fox Sports Piles On (Preseason 2005)

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/4842248

Five teams that'll be just awful




1. 49ers The team was ready to make the first overall pick in this year's draft, Alex Smith, its starting quarterback. That is, until the guy who the 49ers were looking to replace clearly outplayed Smith in the preseason. Now, Smith will have to learn from the sidelines, which isn't an ideal place for a team clearly in rebuilding mode. Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither are NFL teams. There's a long way to go to repair this once-proud franchise.


2. Dolphins Given the opportunity to select the best quarterback in the draft besides Alex Smith, Miami opted to pick a running back. With Ricky Williams returning from his bizarre off-season of finding himself (smoking cannabis) and holistic healing, the Dolphins now seem to have an embarrassment of riches at running back. Well, that'll only be the case when Williams is done serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. When Williams comes back, the Dolphins could be 0-4. This is because of the team's complete lack of quality at the quarterback position. Miami continues to struggle to fill that spot with anybody good since the retirement of Dan Marino.


3. Browns Much of this team's hope vanished when Kellen Winslow went joy-riding on a motorcycle. Romeo Crennel is on board as the new head coach, but it's going to take some time for him to eliminate the garbage that contributed to this team's 4-12 debacle of a year ago. In reality, the Browns are essentially starting over for the third time in the team's new seven-year history. That's a lot of transition, and Browns fans are crossing their fingers hoping that Crennel and Cleveland is the combination that will finally work out.


4. Titans The days of Tennessee-as-playoff regular are long over. Steve McNair is still chucking passes, but this team has little hope in the loaded AFC South. Unfortunately, the glory days of 1999-2003 have caught up to the Titans, and the team gave into its salary cap woes and came to terms with the league's money management system. This team has clearly entered the dreaded "rebuilding" mode.


5. Redskins The NFL Joe Gibbs returned to last season is very different from the NFL he left after the 1992 season. Safety Sean Taylor couldn't stay out of trouble and linebacker Lavar Arrington can't stay healthy. Those two are Washington's best players. Elsewhere, Redskins fans long for a day when starting quarterback Patrick Ramsey is carrying a clipboard.

Keep it coming. We'll call you on your BS when you change this mid-season.

Re: Fox Sports Piles On

I guess our RB or WRs don't matter... nor does the fact that LaVar IS healthy now?

Yes, we're a one trick pony and Lavar is the pony. I think our D is Borg-like, just plug a new body in and we are ready. Top D this season.

I honestly believe these suckers don't know the first thing about our team.

Keep it coming. The more we slip under the radar, the better. As I've said (like a broken record) this is going to help us win games. Thanks, FOX. Great reporting, as usual!

LOL I really can't wait for the season to start already.

We're either going to prove these idiots wrong or maybe we're wrong, either way at least we'll know for sure and end the (negative) speculation.

Re: Fox Sports Piles On

Yea, under the radar! and like I saw in an earlier post, "I hope all this stuff is getting posted in the skins locker room". One thing (and I don't have his lifetime stats in front of me) I am shocked, about the Cowboys. The media is acting like Bledsoe is the second coming of Elway. There is a reason he has been looking for work off and on for the last few years. As we all know, he has a rocket arm. He can post lots of yards. The problem is he throws lotsa INT's. LOTs of them. Always at the worst possible time. He can't carry the big game.

Is anyone recording these lame-ass predictions? We can run an e-mail campaign about mid-season with lots of "We told you so". Three cheers for Joey T.

They have had a great D for the past 3 years of so and what has it got them? Zip. They need to be great on both sides of the ball and it seems as if the O still has a ways to go.

Re: Fox Sports Piles On

When they did not list SeanT as a rising player that is not a rookie that said it all. Yep dumb old Gibbs can learn how to run race team in a few years but he ant smart enough to come back and coach a football after missing 11 years. Then there's Parcells I never heard that the game past him by after last season and going backwards.
