    I'm ready to see this one.

    Smart Bill vs. our Bill....

    I want to see...
    - more Foreman.
    - a WR step up and take the #2 WR spot. Don't care who.
    - Someone knock TB12 on his butt a couple of times ...more would be good.
    - Savage start faster than last week. He looked dazed the first couple of drives. No more of that. He's been here too long.
    - and yes, more Watson.

    How BB plans to produce offense without the top 3 WRs.

    Want to see Watson get reps against the Pats #1 def.

    Want to Watson get some easy completions and find a rhythm.

    Stay in the pocket and get through his reads.

    1. Each position on Oline. Josh Walker looked good at OG. I'm hoping he gets some snaps at RT but I don't think anyone agrees with me on his ability there.
    2. WR Strong needs to be targeted more than once. Wendell Williams needs to show more than just speed. Braxton Miller needs to keep from becoming 'who?'
    3. Back up linebackers and DBs
    4. Drummond, Decoud And Demarcus Roberson (I heard Butler was cramming to get him up to speed) any of these could develop into starter by mid season.
    5. Novak vs Fairbairn

    I'd like to see some signs of life from our offense. And I don't care from who, I'd just like to know our offense is actually capable of playing in the NFL.

    Defense. Kill. Crush. Dominate.

    I know it's just preseason, but this 17 point a game is kinda stale, isn't it?

    :ahhaha:

    And The Titans just scored their 17th point against the Panthers... with 2 minutes left in the first quarter.

    Will our defense be able prevent more than 27 ppg? All we have to do is get one more touchdown from offense and allow one less touchdown from defense and we then have 24-20 average; will not win every game but I'd take it.

    1. Gotta see something positive from the OL since this could determine how the QB's fare this evening.

    2. Gotta see a massive improvement from ST's. If this group remains the same or regresses...no I don't want to even think about the consequences.

    3. Wanna see an aggressive gameplan from the defense to really disrupt TB's rythym.

    Miller has an in ankle sprain and won't be playing tonight. Top 3 WR's are out. Strong needs to show me he can be the #2 while Fuller is on the shelf.

    Game plan? Aggressive? You do realize this is preseason right. Other than very basic stuff, there is no game plan.
