Official Preseason Overreaction Thread- Where the sky is always falling

118 posts in this topic

Each year, fans grossly overreact to struggles certain areas of our team incur in preseason. These overreactions are often tied to DEFCON 1 level anxiety and incomprehensible demoralization among some in the fanbase thinking our season is going to stink.

In the preseason of 2016, our starting offense went 3 and out twice against the Dolphins starting defense and this place went insane with doom and gloom, suggesting we benching Matt Ryan because he was in decline and replacing him in regular season with  Schaub.

We ended up having the 7th highest scoring offense in the history of the NFL and went to the Super Bowl.

Please understand, we do not game plan for these preseason games, nor do we want to show our first regular season opponent, the Eagles, any of our hand. If the starting units have some struggles, it’s to be expected, not catastrophied.

But if you must panic, this is the thread.

7:41pm: First tackle for loss of a running back. Total melt down ensues with 33 new threads. Fire Sark! :argh:

Folks need to learn to enjoy preseason for what it is. Finding the Brian Poole type players and looking at what the backups are like with the hope they barely ever have to see the field. My intensity in these games are set around not having any injuries.

DEFCON 5 here at TATF is a missed FG by a backup in preseason 

DEFCON 5 is two 3 and outs
