I'm still not happy with the D and St either, but I'm trying to keep in mind that it's just the first preseason game. I'll withhold judgement until I see a few more. Mostly I'm just interested in seeing individual performances, and some of those have been really good!

My expectation going into the season has dropped a bit.
Defense and ST are still the same as last year.
Murphy and McDermott are you know what already.

I liked what I saw so far. If the offense fails to find a rhythm again next week I'll start worrying but defense was fine for the first week of preseason. Louis Murphy was a boss, can't wait to see him in with Cam at some point.

Precisely my point. The preseason is about how individuals perform. The full product doesn't have to impress as much (for me, anyway). If you notice, the best part of the football game itself in these preseason games come when you get down to 3rd-4th on the depth chart. When guys are fighting for spots on the 53-man roster and the skill level is fairly even. That's when you're going to enjoy watching these more. The starters and backups are going through situational stuff and running basic stuff to get back into the swing of things. No reason to sound the alarms and start doubting how we'll look come week 1. It's not like the coaches look at film all week leading up to these games like they do in the regular season. Relax, people.

People forget no game planning what so ever goes into a preseason game. It's about looking at players themselves.

We can fix ST when cuts are made too.

Still 8-8 or 9-7 for me.

That's how I felt last week and how I still feel. I feel we can probably get an 11 win season, given we stay relatively injury free and our secondary gets it together a bit. 8-8 is VERY doable and 9-7 isn't much harder. Anything less than 8 wins will be a disappointment for me.
