I'm never looking for much in the pre-season, especially the first game of the pre-season. It sounds like there was some good and some bad. Did anyone really expect much more (or less)?
Yes, I did. The year we won the Super Bowl, we dominated teams in the preseason. Our offense ran all over everyone's defense and our defense was like a wall. It was easy to tell that team was special and had a chance to go all the way and we did.

Holding a team to such a tiny amount of yards and only 13 points is a good outcome.
The final score of a preseason game is totally meaningless. What you look for is the way your starters play against their starters. The fact that our soon-to-be-cut players beat their soon-to-be-cut players doesn't mean very much.

You mean one 6-1/2 minute drive where they dinked and dunked on our olb's?
Over-react much?

Especially with the fact that the starting OLB's for the game were will smith and jay richardson

Not even the starters

I feel as though RR would not show his hand in the game though, he did not blitz alot from the OLB spot at all

Maybe waiting for week 1 to suprise the clowns

************ It's Pre-season**********

It counts... but in a different way, no one is trying to win until the last Qtr when the worst string is in.

Preseason is where you want to find all the things you can't do, or do poorly.

Did well:

1. Ingram looked 1 yard better than last year.
2. I seem to stand alone on the island where our D did about as good as any against Jamal Charles/ run game.
3. As bad as we looked on the opening drive the Defense ONLY allowed 215 yards the entire game. Yes it's preseason, we laid down 427 yards.


Didn't so well:

1. Linebacker experiment is suspect.
2. Special teams were suspect..... But hasn't McMahons ST always been?

Again..... On defense , it's preseason.... We only looked bad the first drive and our LB corps is an experiment right now. We should stop comparing to 2012, it's apples to oranges.

Rob Ryan stated that fixing the run defense was priority number one. You are not alone Oak. We were clogging the line and getting good push. And thats after we lost "the best run stuffing DE in the NFL".

Yes, its still a work in progress, but I'm liking the progress I see.
