So, all you 12-13 win people.....

Why would the defense do that? Are they getting a genius coordinator, Cam Newton, Olson, Shockey, and Hangman worth of upgrades.

Did I say they would? Look at that crucial word if.

So people who try to take a reasoned approach or impart some balance by reminding folks that this was a meaningless preseason game are worse than the histrionic whiners and the blind optimists.

That is either a totally ignorant statement or this is opposite week and no one told me.............

fug it, I love knee jerk reactions and over reactions.. it makes everything nice and pleasant.. and truthful as well.

although I completely agree with the premise of this thread.. it is the preseason, and that goes for people reading into the equivalent of Cam in the preseason playing as bad as The Golden Calf of Bristol in the regular season.. and yet everyone became a witness..

All I know. First team defense forced two turnovers on a play off team. Got news for ya fellas. We consistently force turnovers we win atleast 11 games. We aren't great at forcing 3 & outs, but crank up the pressure and forcing turnovers is what we need to do to be successful!!!

I think 10 wins is accurate.

I see this as our most talented team ever and they're fully capable of winning 12-13 games, IF they come out hot and start the season early with solid chemistry.

If not, I see them dropping that 2 or 3 that they should win early and ending up catching fire late and still getting 10 wins. Regardless, I fully believe we'll make the playoffs this year, it just depends on how we start when it comes to how we'll get there (Wildcard, Division champ, etc.).

Also would like to say, Cam only threw one questionable pass IIRC, and it was the circle-type route to LaFell (cut out, sharp cut in) that the defender jumped and tipped.

He also threw an absolutely beautiful pass to Tutu, but he didn't bring it in.

My concerns were the ST and Defense, same as last year. But we honestly can't read too much into it. No one gameplanned, Phillips was starting for Beason, TD didn't play that I know of, and the Texans offense has made a lot of defenses look stupid over the last year or so. They are masters of those skinny post and seam routes. Regardless, 1st string did relatively fine considering all of that.

Anyone who tries to deduce anything about how the season will go from the first preseason game is an idiot.

To me the game only means we're one meaningless game closer to the real season.

And one meaningless training camp closer to the real season on that logic! :lol:

    • To me this off-season it makes the most since to keep CAP or Foz if it comes down to those two. CAP may be average, but that's as a 1st and 2nd down back which CMC, & Whit are not at this point from a full time perspective.  CAP is the best option to maintain a physical runner in the event (likely-hood) Stewart has to miss a couple games as he tends to each season.  I think it's common sense at this point. If we look at Stewart for what he is ''right now'' aside from pass protection there is not '' a lot'' that really separates him from CAP in my opinion, a few years ago it was a bigger gap, but at this point in Stewart's career he's becoming just a power runner, CAP is the closest we have to that. 
    • Dummy, come on man.    Rivera and DG tanked that game for a high pick. You guys know nothing about running a team.    The question now is, do we as huddles think you're a decent poster anymore. Answer is "no".
