...what is the preseason. It's time to evaluate. Evaluation of the team, the players, new plays, coaches, etc...The hardest part of this particular presaeson is the fact that we're going into the 4th game without having announced the starters at LB's, DL, DB's, and OL. Without the core guys working in conjunction of each other it's harder to build that chemistry with the guy next to you. This is especially evident in our OL. I'm surprised that they haven't had this nailed down before the third game. It comes as a no brainer that we did so poorly against NE due to the fact that these guys have no idea where they stand as far as roster spot. At this period of preseason they need to know in order for the cohesion to be built on. It's also harder to tweak and tune when major parts of the vehicle are missing( i.e. Jackson and Hunt, Bubba ). We'll hopefully be ready for the season but we're at least a week behind due to this continual evaluation.
