Coach should be mad. Players needed to step up and they didn't *kanye shrug*

Newton says coach's message to him after game: "He wasn't happy." Newton says play lacked effort & was lethargic. Says team has to respond.

glad to seem some honesty, he is completely right. It is the first preseason game so I expect a better showing next one.

They expect Rivera to always win and provide them with some insignificant numerical data to give their meaningless lives some comfort.

1. Cam sucked last preseason. Don't think he brings it until it matters.

2. I think some of these guys were lulled to sleep by all of the hype they're hearing about themselves. Hype doesn't always make you play "harder".

I think it was just a preseason game and everyone's fumbling around trying to figure out what this strange new game called "football" is all about.

Hell, the Broncos smashed the Bears 31-3. . .and that was with Peyton Manning throwing a pick and then sitting down after like four plays. It's all chaos right now.

If we're still play like this by the third preseason game then I'll start getting worried.Otherwise, it's all a crapshoot right now.
