    I'd like to see the Saints win.

    Call me old school, call me old Mod. I'd still like to see a win.

    pre-season, it does not matter. Just look at individual players and if even the back-ups are jumping off sides. Colts went 1-4 last pre-season. they seem to have done ok after that.

    But I also understand the view of just win damn it.

    geeze I see that Brees continued where he left off. 12/14 118 yards, 0 td's 0 Ints

    no points in the 1st quarter but he looked very efficient(FG blocked)

    Bush 2 for 15 in rushing

    Former Texan special team player standout Troy Evans has been playing extremely well on our second unit defense. He's fast to the ball, and looks real instinctive when diagnosing the play. I think Evans has played well enough to even start for us. If we didn't have Scott Shanle or Scott Fujita starting at linebacker for us, he would most definitely be running with our 1st team defense. The dude has been making plays all over the field these past two games.

    NO- enthusiasm and urgency getting out of the huddle, playing inspired football.
    Bills-slow out of the huddle, almost a delay of game penalty on each play, no enthusiasm. Losman, scrambles for a first down on one play, ball batted down on the next. I'm like, wait-this looks familiar....................

    No doubt he has exceptional talent, but he wasn't able to break past the second level, most running backs run over safetys and cornerbacks. I think if he adds a little more weight while being able to keep his speed-lookout!

    Pre-season is work to me. The Cowboys of the 90s had winless pre-seasons if I'm not msitaken and a couple of times were 1-4. It depends on your agenda. TC said in another thread that we might need wins for confidence..I can see that...other teams might want to get everyone work and see who stands out in the 2nd and 3rd teams. No injuries is the key. Just a way to sharpen the skills against someone that isn't your own team in practice.
