Yeah, and the thing is how you look. I mean we looked like a keystone cops act last preseason. Of course you had the normal "I am smarter than you" poster chastising people for being concerned, but yes how we look absolutely matters.

Just give me a good showing from the backups and a high energy performance from start to finish.

I want to see results.......points don't matter now.

Edit: Game film baby!
yes it does Rugby. 06 we built a winning attitude through winning. That is why sometimes getting on a roll with wins can be extremely important

Want to see our guys engaged, enthused, and efficient. Not sloppy and disorganized.

I want to see players knowing where they are supposed to be and some sort of cohesion. Just don't make stupid mistakes and I'll be happy. Hopefully we will see improvement from game to game throughout the preseason. The last two years it was nothing. Hopefully the players like Crowley who are having a great camp will continue to shine on the field.

I also don't want to see any more dead money.

I'm hoping the assistant coaching changes have helped and our depth players are playing better because of it. Need to notch a win or two in preseason or it's a bad sign. A lot of the players in the game are playing for a spot on the team so there is no excuse not to go hard.

That was a tough night to be a Saints fan. After seeing that game, I was convinced we wouldn't win 4 games that season.

in some way winning preseason games doesn't show the talent, but shows our depth and coaching.

Circle back to that magical 2009 pre season ... We were dominating teams in pre season. I agree, this team needs to win early, even in pre season.
I love 50 burgers.... can we go back to that this year?
