Preseason Week 4 Discussion
 


Final week of the preseason, games are only on Wednesday and Thursday. Final roster cut down is on Friday then.

Expect to see the starters very little, if at all this week.

It also sucks that the only nationally televised games will be on NFL Network.

Coach of the Week
Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano.
In the span of a month, without top pass rushers Adrian Clayborn, Gerald McCoy, and Da’Quan Bowers, Schiano and defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan have put a tough stamp on their defense. On Friday night, Tom Brady and one of the NFL’s best offenses had the ball nine times. Five times Brady went three-and-out; once four-and-out. He had two long touchdown drives. By the time Ryan Mallett came in to replace Brady, the Bucs led 30-14.
In Schiano We Trust.

That's good but, you know what I'm going to say here....

It's only the preseason. While it's preferable to look good than bad, when you take the field for that week 1 game, none of this will matter. The Lions went 4-0 in the preseason the year they went 0-16. The 49ers went 0-4 last season, ending up 13-3. The Colts, the year they won the Superbowl, went 0-4 in the preseason that year.

So, as John Skelton and Kevin Kolb battle for the Arizona starting QB job in, what has to be the least impressive QB competition since Grossman v. Beck last year, it only makes sense that the competition comes down to the final preseason game, right?

Nope. Neither will play. Ryan Lindley gets the start.

Jets need to pull off that MJD trade and find a tall physical receiver, maybe even TO. I don't think Stephen Hill will make that big an impact his first year; maybe in a year or two.

Wouldn't it make more sense to just bring back Plaxico in that case?

TO just isn't that good anymore. Plaxico is still a capable WR in the league.

scottyboy 08-27-2012 02:31 PM

actually, this could be a fun week for fans like us, bubble guys are going to see most of the time and are fighting for spots

tjsunstein 08-27-2012 02:35 PM

Its going to be really a competitive atmosphere across the leagues. Jobs will be won and lost, futures will be decided. So tense.

49erNation85 08-27-2012 02:46 PM

The Chargers will be going done. 49ers all the way !!

If I were to coaches, I'd play both Skelton and Kolb, hope one of them gets hurt behind that horrible offensive line. That way, the decision of which crappy quarterback to start is made for me.

The Bucs defense played lights out against the Tom Bradys. Better than any Bucs defense has played in some time. Yes, it was preseason, but that was against the Patriotsí No. 1 offense. I am very optiism.

scottyboy 08-27-2012 04:15 PM

that and schiano ******* rules. just remember that.

well, mainly defensively.

Scotty D 08-27-2012 04:30 PM

Its a positive sign, but the Pats and Belichick give two ***** about preseason.

BuckeyeDan17 08-27-2012 05:00 PM

a preseason without even a glimpse of trent richardson gives me a sad.

draftguru151 08-27-2012 05:18 PM

Phins gonna put it together this week!

Ness 08-27-2012 06:02 PM

Austin Davis and Chandler Harnish. Looking forward to the continued progressions of these two.

I had that exact same thought.

Does McElroy finally lead the Jets to a touchdown scoring drive?

soybean 08-27-2012 09:59 PM

Jason Smith for Wayne Hunter? Was that even really necessary?

Why do you have to rain on our parade?

Complex 08-27-2012 11:06 PM

The rams lost in that trade. I bash Jason Smith a lot but he is better than Hunter.
