    Why its so quiet...

    It seems that the board is fairly quiet given that preseason has now started. Which of these theories do you think explains why that is?

    I'm speechless. We just have to wait and see. I think we all believe we will be good or even dominant this year, but there really isn't anything to say.

    Re: Why its so quiet...

    As I stated in chat last night, the day after a loss I am in a pissy mood.
    I am quiet because I am in a pissy mood.
    When we win, I will not shut up.
    Enjoy the silence while you can...

    Forced to watch, NFL - Game Center, with no audio !!! Not knowing who the heck is in, out, or in street clothes. :confused:
    Sounds like the O-line held up which is good that Bulger & Chandler came out in one piece. Jackson seems like he's learning the offense nicely, with Martz using him in the passing game as much as he did. D-line sounds like it needs a few real DT's to be successful against the run, and did I mention the O-line. I think that Martz is ****tin his britches knowing he may have to go into game 1, with that starting unit.
    We'll get a good look next game when DV & Co. throws some stuff at em.

    Re: Why its so quiet...

    I personally don't allow myself to get worked up during preseason games. I use them the same way the coaches do...to take a look at new players. But I'm also aware that subconsciously I'm holding my breath just waiting for some unforseen disaster to happen. Let's hope that's just preseason jitters and not premonition.

    Sometimes the atmosphere here is unwelcoming to posters who want to express concerns regarding preseason play. That is why I have given up on such posts.

    Re: Why its so quiet...

    I personally love watching preseason football. It gives me a chance to look at all the backups perform on the big stage and get a possible look into the future. The thing I don't like is, of course, injuries, but also when people try to evaluate players by comparing stats. There are so many factors that change during a preseason game that it's pointless to compare, but it can be fun to look at players individually and analyze what they're doing right or wrong.

    What do you want? Milk and cookies and a kiss on the forehead?

    If you have something to say, say it. Don't worry if people disagree with you.

    Pre-Season is deceiving fellas. The only thing its good for, is evaluation of individuals, not evaluation of teams. I both hate it and love it. ~SFGM~
