Hardly. It's for coaches to evaluate players, that's about it. The only game I've seen so far that looked remotely real was Seattle-Denver, in the first half only. Both teams started with intensity. It was closely played, but the Broncos made some costly turnovers. Seattle's backup QB (Jackson) looked excellent. After that, what we saw was not reality.Boeing said:What are all y'all's thoughts on preseason? Are preseason performances and results indicative of the type of season a team will have?
Week three of the pre-season we tend to see the most starters. But it's still not all that indicative of what to expect.
Nice kid. Never thought that highly of him as a QB. Never thought he had that strong of an arm either. He's not Joe Flacco or Aaron Rogers. Way overpaid (but not as much as Sanchez, or Romo).Also Sam Bradford cant look off backs. cannon arm but always treading the needle.
Rams should finish about 7-9 I think.
Meanwhile, Tony Gonzalez is ranting about D.J. Swearinger's hit on Dustin Keller (you can YouTube it). Swearinger said he is so leery about going to the head, he just hit low. No penalty, no fine, legal hit. Except it shredded Keller's knee. If you ask me Gonzalez shouldn't be that surprised. In the last year, and this pre-season, officials throw flags all the time for even the slightest hit to the head. Recall last year's Seattle-SF game where Kam Chancellor hammered Vernon Davis, and was penalized for it. But replays showed that helmets never touched, and Davis head didn't even hit the ground. The fact that Kaepernick through a lobbing pass to Davis left him completely exposed to getting hit hard by one of the toughest enforcers in the game. Did anyone think of fining Kaepernick for that play?
