Yeah, we haven't seen C Samuel (also could be concerning), and it's preseason, but the whole body of work since he was brought on as the OC isn't impressive.

The starting offense must be really balling out on the practice field for the staff to feel comfortable with what they (we) have seen from them in the preseason games. They (players/coaches) are all eluding to this when asked about it. I hope it is reality.

Yeah, to me, the offense is concerning.
If the defense wants to be considered elite it will have to stop the run. I’m not convinced we can consistently.

This offense isn't going to light up the scoreboard, no matter how much they play in pre season. My guess is they're going to be up and down just cause where we are at talent wise. It's a middle of the pack group.

As far as Samuel goes, perhaps they don't want him out there for whatever reason. He's a vet and knows how to get himself ready. He doesn't need pre season.

I agree. We know the front four will do their job, so it really depends on how the LB group has improved, along with run support from the secondary.

I haven't seen anything this year that indicates they've gotten over their slow start to games.

Last year really convinced me preseason is kinda overrated. Not so much for the depth players trying to make a roster, but for the starters.

Re: WFT 2021 Pre-Season Games Thread

If you have an offense which is chronically slow to start the season, see Washington for the last 6 years, there is some benefit to getting them into a rhythm before week 1. Whether that out ways the injury risk is the question. They are just as likely to get injured in Q1 of week 1 as during the Pre-season if they are lacking in real game speed fitness. I will trust in the coaching staff and reserve the right to irrationally criticize them later on if the team don't go 5-0 to start the season
