WOW, I guess somebody forgot to tell them since went 3-1 in preseason they were supposed to be good

For the year 2-14, I didn't do the obvious 0-16 year that would be to easy, but even if you look at any team they all have preseasons where have a decent record then they go to do horrible in the regular season, even the falcons, I know a lot of people here remember those years. So stop putting so much merit INTO preseason, be a real fan and support the team!

Instead of making a new thread about this, just bump up last years. Or the year before. Or the year before.

Every year it's the same thing. By the second preseason game of last year, this board had us with a maximum of 6 wins for the year.

The mere fact that we won 13 games last year is a fluke. Just a fluke. But, you can look at those 3 we lost and the playoff of course, and see that the preseason warned us!

Lecture me now on how you can spot the problem areas in preseason and that it showed up last year in our 3 losses and the playoff loss. If only the coaching staff would listen to the experts on this board. We would have been waving that Lombardi around already.

SMH - at least its amusing.
