Yeah it's preseason and yeah it's meaningless but you can only use what you have at your disposal to chart progress at this point and the numbers are mostly pretty impressive in the main catagories. Improvement pretty much across the board.

Now lets see what happens Sunday against the Eagles.

Completely agreed. Preseason stats may be "worthless" but they hold some meaning, especially for this team.

P.S.- The only thing we did bad this preseason was penalties. That broncos game killed us! Also, P Buc needs to learn how to keep his hands to himself when defending the pass, haha.

Don't forget the kicking game, Brown is trying to lose his job. Could he miss a few more?

Well, even thoough those are only pre-season stats, the stats from the pre-season last year held up throughout the year and that is pretty much where we ended up. 25th-32nd in so many categories. We kept hoping we really weren't that bad....... This year we are hoping we are really that good

The thing that jumps out to me is that the Offensive ranking improvement is better than the Defesive improvement. Just watching the games, I got the impression that the Defense was doing better than the offense. Impression vs stats I guess.

Great read, MorKnolle...thanks for that! I'm happy with all that I see there, except for the stat above. Wanted a lot more improvement there. Now it's a preseason stat, so there are a million reasons why it could skew high or low, but this stat immediately reminded me of the first team's offensive implosions early in preseason games 2 and 3. Gotta do better.

Overall, very interesting aggregate numbers that show good signs of progress. Very little chance that the opener next weekend will go anything like the Buffalo opener/disaster last year.

Can anyone find the Tackles #s (stat) I can't find it anywhere. Ryans had 8 one game and I was wondering what his totals were for the preseason. I think he has a great nose for the ball and should be in the running for defensive ROY. (Unless we get robbed - see Dunta few years ago)

Unfortunately, most of our yardage and points came with the first team on the bench!! Too, our 3rd down ratio is worse than last year and that stat has been a weakness for this team since 'day one.' If we want to win, that stat has to improve and--finally--we'll get to see David use all that offense that got held back during pre-season--look out Cutler, here comes Carr!
