Does Preseason Matter?

I keep hearing this bulls**t like "Oh it's just the preseason, blah blah blah...."

But to my question, I say yes. I've watched as much football as possible over the past 3 weeks and can tell which teams are ready for the season (the sames ones you'd expect: Patriots, Colts, Ravens, Titans, Steelers), while some are having trouble on both sides of the ball, like us.

We have not had a long touchdown drive with our first team in the Preseason so far, Hill needs to prove he can score in the red zone which he hasn't done yet, our pass rush is STILL non f**king existent, and our receivers are not getting any separation whatsoever. Plus, our CBs are playing like 20 yards back at all times which is, IMO, exactly what they'll continue to do in the regular season.

If anyone saw the Redskins, Patriots game last night, you could see two teams who know what they are doing on the field. Even the Redskins looked really good. Would we have looked that good against the Patriots first team? No f**king way.

You want to know how much preseason matters? The 0-16 Detroit Lions went 4-0 in preseason. That's how much it matters. Here are the box scores from the games:Game 1 Game 2 Game 3 Game 4

On the flip side of Detroit's 4-0 last year I think Buffalo went 0-4 every preseason before making their 4 straight Super Bowl appearances. Seems like bad teams try hard to win preseason games and good teams just try not to get any key players hurt.
If your QBs blow in preseason it matters
if your wrs cant get seperation in preseason it matters
if you have no pass rush and your starting end playing into the 3rd qt against scrubs and doesnt do s**t it matters

sounds like our team....

By the way, those assumptions are based on what?

Leinhart is/was close to loosing the backup job to St. Pierre. Aaron Rodgers is a great quarter back. Alex Smith is not. Shaun Hill is good enough, and we ran most of the time while they were both playing. You, sir, are a Negative Nancy.
