    Just think about the fact that the Colts just got obliterated and the Pats got beat by the Rams!! And they played Brady until the 4th quarter!! Not saying those teams are in trouble at all, actually quite the opposite, more that preseason doesn't mean ****!! So either stop worrying or stop watching the preseason games, cuz thats all they ever do is make you worry. Take a deep breath...ahhhh.

    Kind of like comparing apples to dump trucks here! The Colts have something like 10+ 10 win seasons in a row, just went to a Superbowl, are a staple in the AFC Championship game, have a first ballot hall of fame QB, several first team AllPro players. Well the Pats pretty much the same I think the have 1 season with less the 10th wins this decade, multiple Superbowl victories, a first ballot hall of fame QB, best coach in football, and several first team AllPro players.

    We on the other have are a rebuilding team that went through another major overhaul this off season. So until we become a team that is consistent like the 2 you are using in your analogy it really isn't a valid argument. There are several area's of concern on our team.

    We are better than we have showed so far in the preseason. So are the Pats and Colts.
    The first regular season game is huge for everyone. Ours is a division game against Buffalo...who beat us last year.
    We have to respect them and play them like we are playing the Jets. Lots of hate, and anger. Very physical.
    The coaches are not showing some of our gadget big plays, coverages, and some schemes for a reason.
    We do not want to provide any game tape so that they can game plan. The Bills are doing the same.
    The team has sputtered for most of the preseason, but I think we will look solid at Buffalo and win a close game.
    This team is still a work in progress.

    I think you may have missed my point. If those two teams that have been solid for many years now are struggling than maybe we should not be as worried as we are. It is pretty obvious that we have struggled but I truly think playcalling has been the main factor just like with the other mentioned teams. Yes we should realize that we have lots of new pieces but I think we will be fine. Now if we start 0-3 again, then maybe its time to take some heads.

    We aren't calling anything fancy this preseason so the plays can be stopped because of the game film teams can study. They will play a lot better Week 1.

    Okay maybe this will shed some light on what the preseason really means. In 2008 the Lions had the number one defense in the NFL during the preseason and their net points topped the NFL. Oh, and they didn't lose a preseason game. This story doesn't have a fairytale ending for the Lions, because the fourth preseason game was the last game the lions won that year. At least they can they can hold their heads up high, because for that preseason they were CHAMPION'S OF THE GRIDIRON!!!!! Lucky Lions' fans. Wish our preseason was more like theirs.

    The preseason doesn't worry me 2 cents.

    Its the Secondary, Pass Rush, O-Line, & QB-Improvement that have me worried, along with the 2009-Repeat Vegas odds.

    It's not the final score or record in pre season that is a concern. It's the dropped passes, dumb penalties, and lack of execution that is cause for concern. Play calling does not fix those errors.

    Preason really doesn't mean ****. The only thing it is really good for is seeing your depth players and that's it.. I take little to no credence in the preseason

    And you don't think those teams are worried, too? You don't get pounded with 52 and take a deep breath and say "this is just preseason". That was the Colt starters that got killed. And the Pats defense got destroyed by the Rams and their rookie QB, who just recently was behind AJ Feeley in the depth chart... and then got beat by the Rams 3rd stringer. You think the Pats are simply shrugging it off like it's perfectly ok?

    To make things more interesting, the 3rd preseason game is usually the one where starters play the most, and is usually considered the one that better reflects a team's true state. I don't know what the season will hold for all these teams, but should they be worried right now? Heck yeah!

    Only thing I'm worried about is OC Henning, which has carried over from last year. Dolphins should pass to run, not run to pass.
