    Yeah, the guys who've made the team why try too hard I guess.

    Also it seems like the play calling is better wiht the second team. Maybe Harbs is plating some mind games.

    not so much mind games, imo...just a different approach to getting to the bottom of things than what we as fans want to see.

    Did anyone see streeter tonight? He might be on the chopping block

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    No player in NFL history besides Joe Montana has ever looked as good as Flacco did in last year's playoffs OR in his last three playoff trips.

    The Pats went 2-2 the year they went undefeated. And of course the 2nd and 3rd games (the only ones where the starters play more than a drive or two), their starters left the game up 17-7.

    Obviously the result of these games doesn't matter. But a game we lose 30-20, where our starters leave up 14-3, is way way better than a game where we win 27-23, where our starters leave down 13-7, after having 1 great play and 20 shitty plays.

    There is a middle ground between saying "we suck and will suck in the regular season", and "the fact we looked shitty doesn't matter because it is preseason," and that is to be somewhat concerned with the way our starters are playing. Contrary to some opinions, they are actually trying. Maybe not balls-out, but definitely trying pretty hard. Also, the opponents are trying at a similar level for similar reasons.
