hoping we go 4 and 0 in the preseason

Recommended Posts

Howard must be walking the mall this morning. Seems he was up late pondering the best way to go undefeated in the Pre-season. I'm not opposed to the idea, but he seems to think it's still 1972 when such games mattered.

Didn’t we go 0-4, then to a SB? I’m not sure, but that’s how much preseason means. Winning beats losing, but there’s no predicting based on the first 4 fake games. 

You just proved the OP's point. If we had gone 4-0 that preseason, we definitely would have won that SB. :lol:

 I think it would be great to go undefeated in the pre season. We would show all the smart analysts that our team is for real.

 

It would show little.  Marv Levy's Super Bowl teams rarely won a preseason game.  Did it matter?

During the Kelly years the team would often go 0-4  during pre-season.

how do you like my team now. 2 - 0 and looking strong. Don’t give me no Marv Levy did this or that. My team is on their way to 4 - 0 and it feels really great. Me and bride have not felt this good since we kicked Shulas behind in 80.

3 way? Kinky but glad you and the bride tonight. Breakfast at Dennys should be special in the morning!

Hey, 4-0 is more fun to watch than 0-4. That's for sure.

I agree with you sometimes but winning pre season will make other teams fear us. Thats half the battle most times as I have found in my 80 plus years.

I don’t think preseason records matter much,and don’t care what the media thinks, but it’s always better to win.

If anything it shows the depth that we do not have.

preseason doesn’t matter? What doesn’t matter? Seeing John Allen slice and dice the defense of the Carolina kittens? Seeing Truman Edmunds dominate? Even my wife’s favorite player Tom Sweeney has a good game against the first string defense. Reminds of guys at the Postal service who said “as long as you get most of the mail there before Christmas you’ll get a good gift from the customer when it counts.”  Hell no. You deliver it all, every day, no matter what. You should take pride in your job and succeed. That’s what preseason is - delivering coupons on Thursday’s so you can be ready for the big haul in January. I hate when people say these games don’t matter.

Doesn't show anything. 

Lions and Browns both went 4-0 preseason... 0-16 regular season.

Two and two would be just dandy to me.. as long as there are zero major injuries and zero interceptions.

 

It's all about the injuries.

I’ll assume you’re agreeing with me , Howard ? I said preaseason records don’t matter much. They don’t, that’s a fact. However, I think the games themselves do matter. Many players need the live reps, and the coaches need to evaluate one on one performances without scheme to enhance them. The final score, and thusly the records are largely irrelevant and no inidicative of success or failure to come. There are many players rotating in and out that may not be on the opening day roster, so you can’t get too hung up on scores. But I’d rather win ‘em than lose ‘em.

Which means a substantial amount less than nothing.
