Postby ike075 » Sat Aug 26, 2006 10:23 pm

Ok so obviously it has not been a very pleasant preseason but as many have said it is just preseason. SO the question has been raised what teams did last year preseason. Well here we go:


New England finished the season 10 – 6 went 2-2 in the preseason
Cincinnati finished the season 11 –5 went 2 – 2 in the preseason
Pittsburgh finished the season 11 –5 went 3-1 in the preseason
Jacksonville finished the season 12 – 4 went 2 – 2 in the preseason
Denver finished the season 13 – 3 went 4 – 0 in the preseason
NY Gaints finished the season 11 – 5 went 3 – 1 in the preseason
Chicago finished the season 11 – 5 went 3 - 2 in the preseason
Tampa Bay finished the season 11 – 5 went 2 - 2 in the preseason
Carolina finished the season 11 – 5 went 2 –2 in the preseason
Seattle finished the season 13 – 3 went 2 – 2 in the preseason

:roll:

Ok Ok....but here are a few encouraging ones


Kansis City 10 – 6 went 0 - 4
Washington 10 – 6 went 1 – 3

[-o<

Ok now check this one out


Indianapolis 0-5 went 14 – 2

\:D/

But it's not that we're losing, it's the way the losses are coming. 41-0 is bad no matter what the circumstances, preseason, regular season, or backyard football. We are getting pummeled and I hope it ends soon.
Go Skins!

Everybody has gotta stop looking for exuses right now, the Redskins might be on the verge of a great season, however the preview looks like crap.
GO SKINS GO!!

We will beat the Ravens soundly on Thursday. The difference will seem like night and day. And we will go into the regular season with some momentum.

I think we're seeing a difference in preseason philosophical approach. I think the skins are creating game situations in a certain way to see what our players (team and individual) can handle. They are using preseason to evaluate players, not so much to validate plays or a system. They are looking for our strengths and weaknesses. Then they will play regular season to our strenghts and figure ways to ameliorate our weaknesses.

We will not see our strenghts until 9/11 against the Vikings. We play Dallas in week 2 and the Giants in week 5. Gibbs doesn't want to show anything now that opposing teams can use to develop counters against.

We will be just fine!

We have a WINNER!!!! Those are exactly my thoughts. The coaches are putting their players in certain situations to evaluate and determine what may need to be done in the future if those situations arise. Putting db's on islands, straight blocking on the line, no stunts, shifts, motions.

They are not looking to win. That will come during the regular season.

I thought preseason didn't matter. :wink:
Actually, our coaches are obviously taking the position that preseason is nothing more than a glorified full-contact practice, so I don't expect to see much different against the Ravens than we've seen so far. Then again, I don't think the Ravens are that good, or will try much harder than we will in a preseason game, so I put the odds at even.

9/11 against the Vikings is a whole different story.

It doesn't, but that doesn't mean that you want to go into the regular season with the taste of a loss in your mouth. I only expect the starters to play for a quarter, if that much. But I still think they will look dominant this Thursday.

Eager to see it, eager to see it.
But if not, I'm going to try to remain calm and remember my mantra, "It's only preseason, it's only preseason, . . . . " :D

I remember the whipping we took at the hands of the Giants last year....36-0. That was troubling.....mid season.....division game....and then losing the next 3 out of 4 with the season looking like it was falling apart. That was worth worrying about, yet we all know what happened next. 5-0 and the playoffs.

I have no doubt that the Redskins have added talent this offseason, both player wise, and coaching. There is a new offense, and new offensive weapons. And offense always takes time to get in sync. Now, with Lloyd and Randle El to complement Santana, we have as good a 1-2-3 as anyone, and we will score more points this year without a doubt. Opposing defenses will not be able to double and tripple Santana this year like they did last year, so the 2006 Redskins will pose a far more difficult challenge for defenses.

Our defense will be fine as has been demonstrated time and again. Williams will not allow it to perform less than exceptionally.

I see 11-5 this year and a toss up for who wins the division. It may be Redskins, Dallas, New York, and Philly in that order.

No worries.
