    ..this will all get straightened out by next year's offseason. After all is was only the Jets:sad2: Maybe some of you see the light now, preseason matters, and again, we were unprepared. I hold the coaching staff accountable.

    The outcome of the games don't matter, but how you play, especially your 1st stringers, sure does.

    you mean how the 0 - 5 pre-season Colts last year, with one decent showing from the 1st stringers really affected their 14 - 2 season.

    Come on, Man. You have better football smarts. There are quotes everywhere, anytime the subject comes up. Of course there are numerous players that think it should be shortened. And those are usually the starters or backups with roster spots locked up.

    I can give you over 700 people that wanted more time on the field in pre-season to earn a roster spot. Coaches understand the concept as well. For the most part you ain't gonna find too many of them chirping about shortenning or eliminating the pre-season.

    And however vanilla, the "live action" is still good for vets to shake off the rust, and get smacked a couple of times too. It looks to me that Collins could have used a little more of it.

    You mean the whole 8 - 8, playoff pushing comments after the opening pre-season game?

    which are now more rarer then a postive comment from RollTide.

    We didn't play well in the first preseason game, but it looked like we were moving in the right direction, then we collapsed and played horribly in the rest of the preseason games. Even the one we won against GB we played bad.

    Bottom line is that you set a tone for the season, everytime you step out on the field. We didn't and haven't set the right tone for how we want our team to play, with the lackluster play of our teams in meaningless games. Pre-season are meaningless in the sense of record, but you are kidding yourself if you really believe they don't matter. They are tune-ups for the teams, offense, defense and special teams. We showed that we could use more practice and better preparation, which we knew watching the preseason games, the kinks were supposed to be worked out by this point. We are not utilizing the time spent on the field, practice or game wisely or efficiently, and we are a poorly coached team. That is why none of our players have developed over the past 5 years, and we continue to go backwards.
