Begin my bitchfest helmet

Looking to see a better game from Worilds and JJ.  Wheaton should take a few returns

Of course, seeing Bell run out there will be pretty exciting

Hoping for no injuries

Pouncey whiffs on Coefield, sack.  Ben gifts one to Kerrigan.

How about a pass attempt beyond the LOS?Huh?

Mike Adams illegal formation penalty negates a first down.  The predictable draw on 3rd and 10.  It's the fucking preseason....throw the fucking ball to a WR beyond the first down marker

This team is a fucking mess

Almost pure unadulterated bullshit.  WTF is with the offensive playcalling.  WTF is with the entire OL.  Dwyer's OK, Ben's had some Ben moments, both kinds.  

Defense has been about par for the pre, Jarvis just showed up on a big play.

Why do I even watch this shit?

Pouncey may be the fourth best starter on the OL right now.

Not vanilla.

Just utterly disjointed.  Every preseason this team plays like suck, but for some reason this season stands out.  No idea how the second half of the reg will go, but if we're 4-4 at the midpoint count your blessings.

Nice series by Landry Jones at the end of the 3rd.  TD play was nice but I really liked a few plays before when he felt the pressure and stepped up....very Ben-like

Markus Wheaton flashed: on that deep past he had his man horse-whipped, and had to slow down to make the catch.  Unlike Mike Wallace, he did.  Wheaton will be a real nice player second half of the season.

Landry may not be a complete bust after all.

Dwyer, last man standing, not tapping out.

TE McCoy had some shimmy and shake.

And Landry Jones has been shit since the end of the 3rd.  Delay of Game and then must use a timeout after the penalty

We don't know what they're doing, and neither do they.

Whimper cannot die fast enough.

Once again, sloppy.  

I mean, are the 1s even trying or do they just suck this bad?  IMO, they need to throw that ZBS out the muthafuggin' window.  They just don't have the athleticism up front to run it.  Foster?  Gilbert?  Those guys aren't nimble enough.

1 single offensive touchdown this preseason orchestrated by the formidable Landry Jones.  Ugh.

This team needs work...a lot of it.  With teams no longer running two-a-days and contact being even more limited in camp, starters should [need to] go deep in both of the remaining preseason games.  They simply can't afford to sleep walk through their first 2 or 3 games this season because they haven't knocked the rust off yet.

Better game for JJ, I guess.  Still doesn't jump off the screen at you, tho.  He was somewhat neutralized by the Skins' backups.

Shamark just has a nose for the ball, man.  He gonna be good.

I'd appreciate if somebody shot the WR corp a memo to knock off the fuckin' chirping after every goddamned catch.  Yeah, it's a first down.  We got it.  Thanks.

Bell with a foot.  Awesome.

Sadly, the most consistent guy they've marched out there is Suisham.  Did Skins fans really boo him?  S'rsly?  A former kicker for your team?  They really care that much?  Now, if he could just get some depth on those kickoffs...

Paulson looks like he's 13.

Their tight end in situation is pretty dire. I don't want to rush Heath back and there isn't much else available on the waived wire... but Paulson sucks, McCoy is JaG and Palmer may not make the final 53.  Tuman/Matt Cushing bad

Wow, usually our Oline doesn't look that bad until we are 3-4 injuries in.

Dwyer was maddeningly inconsistent to me.  Some runs where he showed great footwork, looked like a young Bettis.  But misread some blocks - reciever on one had CB nicely sealed outside, and Dwyer runs right into him instead of cutting inside for an easy 5 yards.  And the fumble was sad.

I hope they cut Whimper before they left Washington.  Not worth the extra fuel to fly his fat ass home.

Defense looked pretty solid overall, considering the turnovers by the O.  Nice to see Woodley show up for a play.

Looking for a lot of 16-13 games this year.

Hope this is just growing pains with the ZBS.  Our OL1-7 are set, and beyond that we are royally fucked.  No need even pretending with Whimp, Batiste, or Long.  Had some hope Long would show something besides a day late and a dollar short.  Fuck ALL of them.  Better off scouring waivers for other teams' castoffs.  IMO, the best OL8 and OL9 were probably Embernate and Cheadle.  Oh well.

I know it's only the preseason, but...whatever you do, don't watch one of Cleveland's first two games.  You'll only be more aggravated.

They're basically the antithesis of what we've seen from Pittsburgh so far; effective, sharp and ready to play.  Weeden looks improved and overall, their defense appears to have taken a couple (several?) steps forward.

A lot is going to fall on #7's shoulders this year.

Bell not thought to have a Lisfranc, in a walking boot.

We'll see with the Browns.  Weeden probably feels the pressure to put together a good season before he hits the age when he can collect Social Security.  Browns for several years have had some interesting parts but nothing resembling a cohesive whole, sort of like a box of toys, most of them broken or shabby.  When you see the first how many plays from Haley go run, run, run, run...  It's clear they're evaluating one particular phase of execution, and it's not how the regular season will be.  The defense can key on run and make us look silly.  D&D on passing yards then becomes equally obvious.  Not happy with how sloppy we were, but not going to compare a crisp Browns team to a shitty Steelers team in the pre.  Give me the Steelers every damned time once September rolls around.

We have plenty of concerns.  Implementing the ZBS.  STs.  Gimpy TEs.  Gimpy DBs.  But we have time to put it together, so let's just see what they do.  If we jumped off the bridge after every sloppy preseason we'd be dead many times over by now.
