although im excited we can run like mad, its going to take more than that to win games. both hill and smith looked like crap the first two games.. well, at least below average. i really hope hill can step up his game because not even the best run game and best def will take us all the way. look at the vikings. the ravens did it, but that was lucky.. dilfer was probably worse than hill. and that raven d was probably better than our d.
i dont mean to be a downer, im just saying.. dont get all sucked into the hype. dont get your hopes up. just because we're dominating in the run game, doesnt mean we'll have an amazing season.. unfortunately. :(
i think if hill can finish this season with a qb rating of around 85, then we should make the play offs. just my opinion. and it is possible.
The aim of preseason is not to win the game.
