You know, I just don't understand why these guys are so easily surprised like this every year. Why are they so over confident so swell headed? How many ti
Es does this need to happen to them before they finally get it?

Look, I know it's preseason, I know we play them again in 4 weeks, but at least play like professionals, at least put up a fight, let em know you were there. I'll say this, we had better tear them a new one when we play them in 4 weeks, and I mean we better show them and the rest of the league that they stand no chance of competing with us.

I did not like it then or now.

I think a good swift kick in the buttocks is what we needed. Stop listening to & reading the hype. Learn what you got to learn & go out & play!!

It was Oliver, the safety from the Chargers. When I saw that play I thought: well there goes his chances of making the 53... I bet GW is tearing him a new one for that.

Avoiding injuries to starters and discovering/new players should be the main concern of ALL teams in the pre-season.

When the Lions went 0-16 in the regular season a few years ago, they were 4-0 in pre-season.

I guarantee anyone that the Texans will not duplicate in Week 3 what they did last night. And that includes winning.

I honestly didn't think it was a kick in the nads at all. My personal opinion is that we allowed that to happen... which is why as a gambling man(shame on me), I had my money on the Texans. I expected vanilla.

Texans had something to prove. the Saints didnt.

Just like the Saints discovered after the Super Bowl season, for a majority of the teams beating the defending Super Bowl champions was THEIR Super Bowl. Cleveland & Arizona come to mind immediately.

If the Packers don't realize that that fact alone will get a bad team to play over their normal ability, they won't be repeating either.

When we run a real NFL game plan and get handled like we did last night. If that's against the Packers then I will be right there with ya. Now, if we are competitive and lose a close one to the defending champs at home, I won't be as worried as if we get blown out...

What I saw on offense is we do what we want when we want on O. Defense again just gotta tighten up missed tackles dont help either I dont remember who whiffed on that first Foster Td but eewwwww he needs to break down and square up better
That was one long, rambling, jumbled sentence. Well, OK, more than one.
